Jihad and Jew-Hatred at Public School Graduation Ceremony in Sugarland, Texas


A graduation ceremony in Texas looked more like a jihad recruitment ceremony in Ramallah, than a high school graduation in Sugarland, Texas. Geller Report readers are not unfamiliar with Sugarland where Muslim supremacists and their leftwing lapdogs got a talk of mine cancelled at the eleventh hour: Cancelled in Sugarland.

Geller Report reader: “My daughter graduated from the Harmony School of Innovation in Sugar Land, Texas, on Monday, May 27, 2019 (Memorial Day)”

An outraged parent who attended the graduation ceremony wrote to the school:

I was appalled and shocked that the staff of HSI-Sugar Land allowed a student to wear and then wave a Palestinian flag on the stage of Jones Hall during the 2019 commencement ceremony. It was even more shocking that this occurred on Memorial Day, when “harmony” should be seen prevailing throughout this country and particularly at this HSI-Sugar Land ceremony. The student displayed poor judgment in using this occasion to make whatever political statement he felt justified in trying to make. I am disappointed that the head of HSI-Sugar Land would allow such rude and insensitive behavior to be displayed. Irrespective of what the flag was, this was a ceremony celebrating an American school in an American city. Having pride in one’s country of origin had nothing to do with that day. I was further dismayed that there was no American flag on the stage, although you made an effort to have a graduate recite the Pledge of Allegiance. I hope that HSI-Sugar Land will appreciate the love that many Americans feel towards their country, especially on American holidays but also at any American graduation ceremony. Now that HSI-Sugar Land knows better, it should do better.

Thank you for taking the time to express your thoughts. I agree that the commencement event is about celebrating students’ success at Harmony and it is not a platform for political or personal statements unrelated to the education and success of our graduating class.  As principal of HSI Sugar Land, I assure you that in the future I will discuss our expectations with the students in effort to avoid these actions again.  As far as not having the American and Texas flag present, that was a regrettable oversight.  At Harmony we regularly have both flags present in every classroom and at events.  It was unexpected to not find flags at the hall that we were renting.  Again, something else we will learn from and improve upon.  Thank you.

The public school Harmony’s Turkish founder, Fethullah Gülen has a notorious, subversive reputation.  Fethullah Gulen is an Islamic organization focused on building charter schools in the US  to indoctrinate an entire generation using US taxpayer dollars. Their schools have been raided by the FBI

It has been discovered that Fethullah Gülen, the leader of the Gülen Movement who claims to base his movement on dialogue and tolerance amongst different religions, has previously made radical remarks encouraging Muslims to destroy “infidels.”

Gülen’s call for taking violent action against non-Muslims can be traced to the voice recording of a sermon which he preached in the 1980s following the 1980 coup d’etat, when he left the city of İzmir and traveled to different cities in Anatolia.

Allegedly preaching about the significance of Jerusalem for Muslims, Gülen can be heard crying and criticizing himself and all Muslims for failing to protect the holy city of Jerusalem and Masjid al-Aqsa Mosque.

“A believer should be like a bomb even if the United States of America opposes him/her! He/she should continue by exploding and smashing the head of the infidel!” Gülen screamed, accompanied by a mixture of lamenting and screaming from the audience. He encouraged the screams by saying that the voice of believers should move heaven and earth, and told them to roar.

Gülen then cursed those who did not stand against the occupation of Jerusalem and Masjid al-Aqsa and told his audience to take immediate action by voicing the issue to everyone, including deputies.

In the recording, Gülen can be heard as saying “We will ruin the plots of America and reveal their true side”. These are particularly remarkably radical and controversial sentiments given he has been living in the U.S. in self-imposed exile since 1999.

“We will turn the U.S.’s games upside down in the next 5-10 years,” Gülen is heard saying in the sermon.

A Turkish criminal court issued an arrest warrant last week on Friday for Gülen following a request filed earlier by Istanbul’s chief public prosecutor. It was reported that sufficient concrete evidence has been found, proving Gülen’s involvement in leading a criminal organization and crimes including forgery, fabricating evidence and forming an alleged crime syndicate to overtake the sovereignty of the state.
