Fethullah Gulen’s Statement on Mass Shooting at Pittsburgh Synagogue


Date posted: October 28, 2018

I am shocked and deeply saddened by the horrific attack against the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. It is heartbreaking to see such a tragedy happen at a place of worship. I strongly condemn this hate-driven attack on the worshippers.

May this tragic event be an occasion to strengthen our commitment to promoting love, respect, and compassion among every individual.

I express my heartfelt condolences to family and friends of those who lost their lives. I pray to God, the Most Compassionate, to lead our society to days of peace and tranquility where respect for human life overcomes hatred. I also pray for the fast recovery of the wounded.

Right now, all critical voices are silenced in Turkey and only the voice of those in power is heard. Consequently both Turkish people and outside observers are misled. The misperception about the coup continues because there is only one voice. The government interprets everything according to their calculations. They are using this event to express the antipathy they already had against Hizmet movement. The coup attempt is serving to justify their plans to persecute Hizmet movement.
