PRLog - May 16, 2012 - NEWARK, N.J. -- Peace Islands Institute hosted Dr. James Harrington on a "Book Conversations" program on March 1st 2012. Journalist/Writer Aydogan Vatandas interviewed Dr. James Harrington on his book titled "Wrestling with Free Speech, Religious Freedom, and Democracy in Turkey: The Political Trials and Times of Fethullah Gulen".

Dr. Harrington commneted, "The good thing for Mr. Gulen is that he won. Usually people loose political trials and get executed in the history of humankind. But he won and it was pretty remarkable. Part of the reason he won is because of the effort by Turkey to get into the European Union".

Dr. Harrington says, "Now in the movement there is not a legitimate concept that you can make as much as you want and not think about anybody else in the movement. It's still very communitarian. What happens when those values run into our current American values? Hopefully American values will change, hopefully the movement will help change the American values".
