Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's live conversation with the Chief Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau, A9 TV, October 18th, 2011
RABBI YISRAEL MEIR LAU: First of all, I want to thank for the kind hospitality and for the invitation to come and to meet. I have heard a lot about my host. I am very happy to be here, to shake hands and to open a dialogue. We are believers. We believe in the Torah. We believe in the God, the Lord Almighty Who gave the Torah. There is a story about the first of fight between two brothers; Cain and Abel. In the book of Genesis, chapter number 4 [verse 8] and there is a very strange sentence there. "vayomer Kayin el Hevel achiv " Cain said to his brother Abel; "veyehi biheyosam besadeh" while they were in the field "veyakam Kayin el Hevel achiv vayahargehu" Cain stood up and murdered, killed his brother Abel. But the beginning was "vayomer Kayin el Hevel achiv " he said, he spoke to him. What did he [Cain] say? Nothing. Not even one word [of importance]. It means there was no dialogue. He just said a few words in order to pull him out from the home of father and mother Adam and Eve. He brought him to the field without saying any serious words. Maybe this is the reason for the first assassination of the world. Two brothers, but no dialogue. They did not speak. That is why I understand that we must always cooperate, not only to speak one to the other, also to listen one to the other. This is [the] number one [reason] why I am here.
RABBI YISRAEL MEIR LAU: Our aim is to give hands [of friendship] and not handles for instruments to destroy. This is the purpose why I am here.
