The basic scheme is this: Muslim-run companies are chosen by Harmony Schools for the construction of the new schools over similarly-qualified lower bidders. The boards of the schools are typically made up of Turkish-born immigrants, and Harmony Schools then uses the federal H-1B visa process to bring teachers over from Turkey. All of this, of course, is paid for with taxpayer money.
The construction businesses and teachers then tithe to the Cosmos Foundation and other associated Muslim charities, like the Raindrop Foundation. The Raindrop Foundation, aside from paying for lawmakers to go to Turkey for two weeks and sponsoring a festival honoring imam Gulen, does the following:
The Raindrop Foundation says its mission is to promote Turkish culture in America. It sponsors cooking classes, traditional Turkish dinners and performances of the Whirling Dervishes, a dance group associated with Sufi Muslim tradition. It also organizes an annual Turkish Language Olympiad where 6,000 students, many from Harmony schools, compete in Turkish language, poetry, dance and singing contests.Interesting.
