Distorted: The issue is not Erdogan neither Gulenist cult, it is Islam and it is the worst religion to be politicized.
Factual: Causality lies on a relationship between two variables as one is independent from the other which explains the result namely the dependent variable. But there is chance in social sciences there in some cases there might be a spurious relation between two variables. This text is an exact example of this kind of an explanatory mistake. Since both Gulenist cult and AKP government has Islamic ties and they haven blamed fort his result of coup attempt the author spuriously builds a relationship between politics and Islam. This is not a scientific explanation of the situation because author generalizes an idea on a data set of just 2 cases. To be able to generalize an inference in social sciences one should have a very large population which can resemble the society and the international system.
