University of South Carolina Interfaith Initiatives: Whirling Dervishes to Visit Columbia

Intercultural Dialogue, a Carolina student organization, is promoting the appearance of The Whirling Dervishes in Columbia on  March 11, 2013.

The Whirling Dervishes are followers of the 13th century poet, Islamic jurist, and theologian, Mawlana Jalal ad-Din Rumi, who lived in Konya, Turkey. He represents the mainstream Islamic philosophy driven by the Quran and the Prophet Mohammed. The Whirling Dervishes are known for their famous practice of whirling as a form of dhikr (remembrance of God). The rituals of the Whirling Dervishes are among the most enduring as well as the most exquisite ceremonies of spirituality. The universal values of love, respect, self-discipline and responsibility shared by all Sufis are very much relevant to the individual and social issues of today.

This link leads to a page on the SC Dialogue Foundation website featuring a laudatory description of Sufism by Fethullah Gülen. Many westerners think that Sufis are a more benign offshoot of Islam, which is not so. Don’t be fooled. This is yet another vehicle for Islamic infiltration into our educational system under the guise of “tolerance” and “interfaith dialogue.” That’s what Fethullah Gülen and his movement are all about.

Events will be held in Columbia, Charleston, and Greenville SC. The Columbia event is being held at the W. J. Keenan High School. I can imagine the brouhaha if a high-profile Christian event were being held in a public high school!

Fethullah Gülen is a dangerous man who leads a dangerous movement.

More about him here, here, and here.
