Prominent Turkish Muslim Leader Sends Passover Blessings to the Jewish Nation

I do not believe my Christian brothers will put any such pressure or duress on others either. Jews, Christians and Muslims can all live together as servants who believe in the one Allah, who love Him and call upon Him. The important thing is to be very honest. No problems will arise so long as people are honest, because honest people never do anything incompatible with good conscience. They never do anything that will be displeasing to Allah. Lovelessness, harshness, oppression and compulsion are all displeasing to Allah. Those who love Allah stay well away from them.

Yanover: In your discussions of Israel’s future in the region, you distinguish between religious Zionists, whom you embrace, and atheists, whom you condemn. It is my impression that the Israel you wish to see thriving in a future united Turkish-Islamic Middle East is strictly run by religious Zionism. But the Jewish view of ourselves is inclusive, and we love equally as brothers the Jews who are not devoted to our faith. Is there room in your vision for the future for a secular, democratic Israel, with all its many obvious faults, pretty much as it is today?

Adnan Oktar: With the complete intellectual elimination of Darwinism in the near future, by Allah’s leave, materialism and atheism will also come to an end. Irreligion will completely disappear. Belief in Allah, love for Allah and the fervor thereof will rule everywhere. Israel will be much more devout, insha’Allah, and all the countries in the world will be completely religious. All states will preserve their democratic structures in the Turkish-Islamic Union I am espousing, and this Union will in any case represent the greatest embodiment of democracy there has ever been. Believers and non-believers will both be treated as first-class citizens. Israel is currently living under very difficult conditions and constant tension, and has economic problems. It has literally gone up a dead-end, and the Turkish-Islamic Union will be Israel’s salvation in that regard, insha’Allah. Israeli citizens will worship and do business and settle where they wish in security, not only in their own lands, but in the whole Middle East. Borders, pressure and walls will all disappear, and there will be a glorious climate of wealth and security.

Yanover: We understand you are in the middle of continuing legal proceedings. Bearing that in mind, how do you regard the latest international and domestic events in Turkey?

Adnan Oktar: It is the alleged terror organization Ergenekon that is opposed to my activities in Turkey, in other words, the communist deep state within the state. Otherwise, the Turkish state is highly rational, just and trust-inspiring. It is the alleged Ergenekon terror organization that has been trying to hinder me with unbelievable slanders and lies for the last 30 years. The Turkish state is a deep-rooted and sound one, and never falls into such people’s traps. In fact, there is a huge clean-out going on in Turkey against this sinister institution. The Kurds are our dear brothers, and there are no differences between us. Our Kurdish brothers are very polite, virtuous and devout people. It is the alleged terror organization Ergenekon that has inflicted such terrible oppression on them for so many years. The Turkish Army and state is highly loving and protective towards these citizens. That love will increase still further, respect for human rights and democracy will grow and Turkey will enjoy a much better position, insha’Allah. There is no need for our Jewish brothers to be uneasy about Turkey’s Middle East policy. The People of the Book are entrusted to us by Allah. And we will not allow a hair on their heads to be harmed, insha’Allah.
