Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's live conversation with the Chief Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau, A9 TV, October 18th, 2011
RABBI YISRAEL MEIR LAU: We have had excellent relations throughout the centuries. From the days of the Sultan, the days of the Amir. We had excellent relations even before this city was called Istanbul. It was called Kushta [Constantinople] then. Even to the days of Byzantine Constantinople, our friendship goes back that far.
ADNAN OKTAR: Masha'Allah, that is how it will always be. It will always be like this until the Last Day insha'Allah.
