Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Interview on A9 TV dated September 10th, 2011
MS.BETUL: There is a picture here and with your permission I would like to show it. This is from the explosion in Iraq Bagdat in which 30 people had been martyred. Everywhere was soaked in blood Master. Even in a mosque Muslims killed Muslims. This is the picture of it. Insha'Allah.
ADNAN OKTAR:This, for instance, is a separate disgrace on its own. This is a separate ruse of the satan's. Satan is mocking people, playing games with them. How can one Muslim bomb another? Are you crazy? They kill a five-year-old, a sweet little Jewish girl and say "I have acted heroically". Your actions are disgraceful and you are following satan, you fool!
You will go to the lowest place in Hell, may Allah forbid, and receive your just deserts there. Don't be a fool. People are all servants of Allah; how beautiful and sweet they are. This sweet one here for instance is a Serbian, she is a very sweet person, a lovely creature. Why should I be her enemy? I'd love her, I'd feel love for her. I pray for her well-being, I pray Allah to guide her. Why should she be destroyed or badly off? I do not understand this mentality. Theirs is a mulish hatred. Once they get it into their heads.. But a Muslim is not vindictive. He is not filled with hate. He is forgiving and compassionate. And hating people who have nothing to do with anything is a terrible persecution. If someone has done wrong, let that person concerned receive the punishment whatever it is, insha'Allah.
MS.BETUL:Master, I have the pictures of some very sweet Jewish kids, may I show them to you? Insha'Allah.
ADNAN OKTAR:Let me see.
[Looking at pictures of Jewish children]
ADNAN OKTAR: My brother, what a sweet thing this is. Look at him. Is it not a pity to hurt those innocent sweet ones.. Right? They are full of light. What a pity! Look at that expression.. They are so sweet, masha'Allah. Right? They are the servants of Allah; they are innocent people. Feeling hatred towards them [these Jewish kids] is a vile thing to do. Look at that radiance, that loveliness. How utterly cute! Sweet as honey.
Look at those faces. All happy as anything, masha'Allah.
Masha'Allah. Face like a red apple. She looks so cute, her nose cute enough to eat. Masha'Allah. The sweetest things in the world, masha'Allah.
Hatred is an awful feeling. One must always treat people with love and affection and compassion. Saying ;"they did this to us.." etc.. My brother, then there will be nobody left in the world at all; that mentality is not acceptable. Revenge, revenge, revenge.. and then what? Almighty Allah tells us to respond to evil with good, and then the person who has done evil will return to us and become a good person. There is a verse of the Qur'an about that. Constant hatred is no good. For example, tell the Jews, "my brothers, of course you can live there, it is the land of your fathers. Why should you not live there? Let us open the borders and tear down the walls.." And the Palestinians as well.. One are the sons of Ishmael and the others the sons of Israel. Both sides are descended from prophets. Children of the same prophet father. Arabs are the children of Ishmael and our Jewish brothers are the children of Israel. What is the problem? There is boundless land there, all lovely. Let them go to Jordan and settle everywhere. Let them come to Turkey, they are all welcome. What is there to make a problem out of that? The Palestinians are living all cramped up, as if on tiny islands. What is the need for that? Open all those lands.. What need is there for police checkpoints? For those military checkpoints? Get rid of them and let them live at ease..
