And the Prizewinner is Mr. Gülen

[From the French language press]:
Qui sont les cent intellectuels les plus influents? Trois ans après un premier vote de ses lecteurs qui avait couronné l'Américain Noam Chomski, surprise! C'est un imam, prédicateur et écrivain turc, Fethullah Gülen, qui remporte la palme.

Bureau Culture, "Les intellectuels musulmans désignés comme les plus influents" - Courrier International - Paris, France - mardi 24 juin 2008

Who are the hundred most influential intellectuals? Three years after the first vote from his readers who crowned the American linguist Noam Chomsky, the british monthly Prospect and the american magazine Foreign Policy publish their new list.

Surprise! it is an imam, preacher and turkish writer, a man near to the Justice and Development Parti AKP, the sufi thinker Fethullah Gülen who is the prizewinner.

He is followed by nine other thinkers of the muslim world: Nobel Prize for peace winners Muhammad Yunus (second) and Shirin Ebadi (tenth), Nobel Prize winner for literature Orhan Pamuk (fourth), as well as Tariq Ramadan (eighth) and the islamist preacher Youssef Al-Qaradaoui (third).

Read a report from the Guardian, where Robert Tait, their journalist in Istanbul, comments on this Islamic scholar voted world's N° 1 thinker, and watch the video about Fetullah Gülen's network of schools at this link: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2008/jun/23/turkey.islam
