Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9 TV dated May 9th, 2012
ADNAN OKTAR: Where are we going to be speaking with?
PRESENTER: We will be connected to Rabbi Yehuda Berg from Israel. He is the manager of Kabala Center.
ADNAN OKTAR: The Kabbalah Center.
ADNAN OKTAR: Yehuda Berg, director of the Kabbalah Center. Okay.
ADNAN OKTAR: All right. Who is this Yehuda Berg [to introduce our viewers]?
PRESENTER: Master, Rabbi Yehuda Berg is the manager of the Kabala Center with its branches in 40 cities and with its millions of followers. He has been elected the 4th most influential Rabbi in the United States and he is known the most prominent authority of the Kabala movement all over the world. Mr. Yehuda is the author of about 30 books some of which are among the international bestsellers. He is also known as the mentor of many internationally famous artists, politicians and businessmen. I can mention a few names from artists if you deem appropriate; There are many other people like Madonna, Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, Mick Jagger, Donna Karan, Gwyenth Paltrow, Elizabeth Taylor, Victoria and David Beckham. Our connection is ready if you deem appropriate.
ADNAN OKTAR: The connection is ready. Okay.
ADNAN OKTAR: Selamun alaikum, my dear brother Yehuda Berg.
YEHUDA BERG: I am very good. Hello, my dear brother.
ADNAN OKTAR: Masha'Allah. What do you do? Could you give us some information?
YEHUDA BERG: Yes. So, in general, our work in this world, at the Kabbalah Center is to bring the consciousness, as well call it Mashiach, as you call it, Mahdi to get to the place where the entire world, first understands the consciousness and then we actually bring it down into being in to this world.
ADNAN OKTAR: Yes. Isaiah 11:5 says that "righteousness will be his -the Moshiach's, the Mahdi's- belt and faithfulness the sash around his waist." Isaiah 11:4 says that "with justice he -Moshiach, the Mahdi- will give decisions for the poor of the earth".
We are in that age, a fine age, in 2012. We are in the time of Moshiach as described in Judaic sources, in the Torah. Moshiach has appeared in East Rome and has begun his work. The Muslim, Judaic and Christian worlds will all enjoy this festival, the beauty of this.
YEHUDA BERG: For sure this is the time; he's amongst us already. It's just all work to make sure the entire world knows that. Unfortunately, not all the Jews, Muslims, Christians and others in the world understand. We go all around the world, spreading this consciousness with mutual work, with Mr. Adnan Oktar, with all the leaders, spiritual, religious leaders; yesterday I was in Ramallah with Abu Mazen, giving him the consciousness of Mahdi; I go around the world, to all the world leaders to give them the consciousness because King Messiah is here; Mahdi is here, let's bring it, let's manifest it to the entire world.
ADNAN OKTAR: Insha'Allah. In Isaiah 52:13 Allah says, "See, My servant -Mahdi, Moshiach- will act wisely; he will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted." He says. We have Allah's word. Almighty Allah refers to the Mahdi in Zechariah 4:6. "'Not by might or power, but by My Spirit', The Lord Almighty says". Moshiach will succeed through the spirit of Allah, not through force, but by My spirit, He says in the Torah.
YEHUDA BERG: For sure, and I can share with you that as we see the entire world, where there used to be power and money leaders are disappearing. Only true leadership will reveal from the people. The entire world is seeing today that Mahdi is possible only through the people. And only through true leadership, true people, giving the power to the people to understand this consciousness, and even the holy book of Zohar, Kabbalah, says, [in Hebrew] that the consciousness of Mahdi is with us today, in this year.
ADNAN OKTAR: Masha'Allah, this is true. This is also a blessing on you and us. Jews who believe in the oneness of Allah in the End Times, Muslims and Christians who believe in the oneness of Allah, are in an alliance on the subject of the Mahdi. Nobody can stop the Mahdi. Because he has the support of Allah and help from the angels. Allah also provides our own endeavors. This will emerge in all clarity very soon, insha'Allah.
ADNAN OKTAR: Maimonides says in his commentary the Mishnah Torah, in 10:1 of the Sanhedrin, that the Messiah, Hazrat Mahdi, the King Messiah, Moshiach "will achieve great fame, and his reputation among the nations will be even greater than that of King Solomon".
ADNAN OKTAR: In Psalms 22:27-28, it says that "All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations will bow down before Him, for dominion belongs to the Lord."
ADNAN OKTAR: Again in Psalms 132:17-18, it says, "Here I will make a horn grow for David -Moshiach- and set up a lamp for My anointed one." in other words Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), "and I will clothe his enemies with shame, but the crown on his head will be resplendent." His power will reign across the whole world.
ADNAN OKTAR: Again from Maimonides' commentary on the Mishnah Torah in the Laws of the Kings 12:5, it says, "In that era -in the time of King Messiah" in other words in the time of Hazrat Mahdi, "the occupation of the entire world will be solely to know God." The only thing they will be occupied with is serving Allah.
ADNAN OKTAR: "In that time" in the time of the Mahdi, "there will be neither famine nor war," there will be no economic crisis and no wars, in other words, "neither envy nor strife; all good things will be bestowed in abundance, and all delicacies will be accessible like dust." People will easily be able to obtain goods and possessions, goodness and beauty just like dust.
ADNAN OKTAR: Yes, let us now listen to Yehuda Berg a while.
YEHUDA BERG: Yes. I wanted to thank Mr. Adnan Oktar for this opportunity to talk to my Muslim brothers, and also for the opportunity to work together as a real partnership to bring Mahdi consciousness to the world and have him manifest to the world.
ADNAN OKTAR: Thank you. May Allah keep you and grant you goodness and beauty. Insha'Allah the borders between Israel, Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt and everywhere will be lifted, in other words, there will be no more visa or passport requirements, and we will be able to embrace one another and great peace and happiness and beauty will enfold the world. Wars will end, bloodshed will end, and we will enjoy the happiness and fervor of this Golden Age of the End Times foretold by the Torah and the Qur'an and Rasulullah (saas), insha'Allah. And we will rebuild the Temple of Solomon, insha'Allah.
ADNAN OKTAR: Yes, if Yehuda Berg has no more questions, we can end here.
YEHUDA BERG: No. Yes, I just want to send again blessings and love from the holiday here and from all the thousands of people here, our love and support to Mr. Adnan Oktar and all the followers of Mahdi around the world.
ADNAN OKTAR: Give them all my love and greetings. I embrace them all with love. You are in a lovely, holy land. Insha'Allah, we can soon be there together. We will embrace the joy of this together. May Allah grant us all strength and happiness and goodness. Let us embrace this age of peace, the age of the Mahdi, with joy. May Allah bless us all.
ADNAN OKTAR: You know where you can find the Messiah. Should we seek him in Jerusalem they said, 3000 years ago. The answer was to seek him at the gates of East Rome, in other words, Istanbul. You know you can find this in your sacred scriptures. 2012 is a very important date, when Allah is putting His plan into action. Allah needs no plan, but He is implanting destiny. We will see fine and joyful days. Allah has gathered you there for a good purpose, and is having us speak here for a good purpose. Insha'Allah, we will all be together and the King Messiah will come to Jerusalem and embrace you there. Insha'Allah.
ADNAN OKTAR: My greetings.
