ALBANY

Kimse Yok Mu, Hizmet’s Relief organization, is continuing humanitarian aid efforts in Europe in addition to hundreds of other countries. One of the last example of its work is the vocational training center for the women in need in Albany. Miniature artist Gunseli Kato’s name has been given to the center because of her contributions. The vocational training center is a joint project of Kimse Yok Mu, Turkey, and Compassion Association, Albany. Speaking at the opening ceremony, Ms. Kato expressed her feelings: “I was surprised when I came here. I did not expect a result like this. This [center] made me so happy.”

By the help of this center numerous women  including many widows in Albany will have professions. Training in twenty different professions will be offered at the center, which consists of workshops and sales rooms. Trainees will get economical benefits through sold items at the center that aimed to reintegrate women into the society.

Gunseli Kato in her speech explained how she was involved in the opening of the center. She pointed out that her daugher travelled to Sudan with Kimse Yok Mu,  and said, “After she spent 5 days in Sudan, she became a totally new person. She told me everything she experienced. I was impressed by what she told me and decided to take place in these beautiful efforts.” She added that she would be supporting the center by teaching here from time to time.

Dr. Blendi Cekrezi, the chairman of the board of directors of the Compassion Association, said that a self oriented life has taken over in the world. He added that people living in difficulties in different parts of the world are ignored and by establishing this center they aimed to support every single needy Albanian brother and sister and satisfy their needs. He also said that “By these training programs we aim to reintegrate widows, orphans and homeless people back to society”.

But while U.S. agency spokesmen are trying to be cautious in what they say, skepticism about Turkey’s claims that Gulen directed the plot are widespread in Washington. Last week, in comments that likely burned a few ears in Ankara, U.S. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told The Washington Post that he did not believe Turkey had yet offered enough proof to implicate Gulen, who has lived in Pennsylvania’s Poconos region for years.

Right to dissent in Turkey

The primary reason why members of Hizmet (Service), a faith-based social movement inspired by Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen, have been attacked, vilified and stigmatized by a government that is dominated by overzealous political Islamists and pro-Iranian sympathizers is that Gülen is standing up to the increasingly authoritarian powers of Erdoğan, who has seized control of the republic’s institutions including the judiciary, leading to increased polarization and tension in Turkish society.

I feel fooled, upset, hurt

Recent statements by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan aired by the ATV TV station upset, surprised and hurt me. I felt fooled and surprised, because despite the decision made by the Cabinet two days ago, the prime minister made a clear statement: “There is no way back. The draft will be reviewed.” Everybody is taking a test now; only our Islamic attitude, stance, love, tolerance, humility and style will save us.

Twelve questions Turkey’s journalists can’t ask

Erdoğan was born to a relatively poor family in Rize, along the Black Sea. His father was in the coast guard and worked at sea. Erdoğan at one point even sold snacks on the street to make extra cash. He graduated from a religious school in 1973, and immediately embarked on a political career, eventually becoming first mayor of Istanbul. So here’s the question: How did a man like Erdoğan become a billionaire several times over?

An open letter to Prime Minister Tayyip Erdoğan

When it is necessary, making objections demonstrates honesty; approving everything is an indication of hypocrisy. So if all these people are saying that this is wrong, listening to them is not a weakness but a virtue. This is what the nation expects from you. Otherwise, it will take forever to heal the wounds that have been inflicted in their hearts. So is it worth it?
