Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated December 15th, 2016
ADNAN OKTAR: The Shia is the community that is anticipating the coming of Mahdi the most eagerly; this is why they seek to eliminate the Shia. We love Shiites, we love Mahdi. May God render Mahdi visible as soon as possible. Anti-Shiism stems from the enmity towards Mahdi. And the British deep state decided among themselves that the Turks would best handle this issue. They are in the opinion that, since the Turks are close neighbors, they can pit us against each other assuring our mutual destruction. We will turn the tables on them.
