Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9 TV dated September 25th, 2012
ADNAN OKTAR: The Masonic Lodge, the Grand Masonic Lodge constitutes the most influential power in Italy. All politicians, all scientists are all from there, from that lodge. In that Lodge, the Qur'an is brought and placed on the top and the Turkish flag is brought with a ceremony. That is the first time that a Turkish flag was waved in the Grand Masonic Lodge. That is wonderful.
Is it possible for us to see those pictures once more?
DIDEM URER: Let us open the files
ADNAN OKTAR: Yes, let us see.
DIDEM URER: Shall I read the information once more Master?
ADNAN OKTAR: Yes, please.
DIDEM URER: Oktar has attended the opening ceremonies of the new building of the Italian Grand Masonic Lodge in Rome as your representative.
ADNAN OKTAR: Let us give an applause for the flag.
DIDEM URER: Master, hereby this is the first time a Turkish flag is placed in a Masonic Lodge. They have asked us to place a copy of the Qur'an in Italian to this special lodge and to record it for A9TV. And we were the only TV channel allowed to shoot this ceremony. Oktar, as your representative, was hosted there as the guest of honor. Through the verses of the Qur'an, he explained the fact that Islam is a religion of peace and love, that it condemns violence and that those who believe in Allah should ally against irreligiousness, insha'Allah. After dinner, your books; the Atlas of Creation, A Call for Unity and Islam denounces Terrorism were presented to the grand Masters as a gift. The Grand Master [of that Lodge] has forwarded his regards and his greetings to you and as your representatives, our friends were invited by other Grand Masters to bring a copy of the Qur'an to their lodges, insha'Allah.
ADNAN OKTAR: Yes, now we will bring a copy of the Qur'an to many Grand Masonic Lodges, insha'Allah. In many places of the world, the masonic lodges have asked us to bring them a copy of the Qur'an, insha'Allah. They have asked for both a Turkish flag and a copy of the Qur'an, insha'Allah. During these events we are able to give extensive speeches from the Qur'an and explain the invalidity of Darwinism and materialism. That is a wonderful work. These are all wonderful methods masha'Allah.
DIDEM ÜRER: Master, there is also a plaque presented, may I read the related information about that as well?
ADNAN OKTAR; Yes, go ahead.
DIDEM OKTAR: From the World Grand Lodge, the Grand Lodge of Italy. We are sending our endless thanks to the Grand Master Adnan Oktar with great respect and love for the great honor he had given us with his attendance by proxy to the opening of the Grand Lodge in Rome, Marcia Square.
ADNAN OKTAR: My brother, as the name calls, this is Rome, the City of Heraclius. Our Prophet (saas) mentions this city in the hadiths. When he is asked which city he means, he says ;"Rome" as an explanation and then gives a further explanation saying that it is the city of Heraclius.
