Ankara mayor suggests Gülen uses genies to ‘enslave people’
Hurriyet, Jul 24 2016
ANKARA – Ankara Mayor Melih Gökçek has suggested that Fethullah Gülen uses genies to “enslave” people, speaking after the Jul 15 failed coup attempt, which the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) says the “Fethullahist Terrorist Organization (FETÖ)” was behind. The host of a TV show on private broadcaster CNN Türk asked Gökçek:
How can Fethullah Gülen control such a large number of people? What makes him different?
The Ankara mayor replied using a Turkish phrase to refer to the word “genie.” He said:
This may sound funny to you, but he does it with a strange method. He does it with the ‘three-lettered things.’ Everyone now can debate this. He enslaves people with the ‘three-lettered things.’ It’s obvious that a lot of people have been enslaved in previous times and then saved. He has the ability to do this too. People have become mesmerized and enslaved.
