Video - Turkish gov’t-funded Albanian madrasas teacher recorded praising ISIL & Bin Laden in classroom. (TP).
A recording has revealed a teacher who works at a Turkish government-funded religious school in Albania speaking with a student about how Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) militants seek to “provide protection to the Muslim people of Syria, Palestine and Egypt.”
During his 35-second video, a student says he does not understand if ISIL militants are Muslim or not. In her answer, the teacher says ISIL seeks to protect Muslims and that therefore they are good people.
The controversial teacher works at an imam-hatip school established by the state-run Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TİKA), which has largely been funded by Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) government since 2002.
The Turkish government’s education projects in foreign countries are for the most part managed by TİKA. Full transcript can be read here.
