Adnan Oktar: It is illicit for the Muslims not to get united and act together. IT IS OBLIGATORY, ACCORDING TO THE QUR’AN, FOR MUSLIMS TO ACT TOGETHER, AS BROTHERS, AND TO GATHER AROUND A SINGLE LEADER, AGAIN AS BROTHERS.Muslims are not doing that. Not doing that opens the door to all kinds of affliction. Muslims should abide by that obligation. That is why I say there must be a Turkish-Islamic Union under Turkish leadership, under the leadership of the Turkish nation. Every state can remain as a separate nation state. Every state can behave freely within its own borders, but there should be a spiritual leader. That is because the Christians have their leader, the Pope. It is essential that Muslims also have a spiritual leader. If this spiritual union has a leader, ALL THIS CORRUPTION AND STRIFE CAN EASILY COME TO AN END. In that event, if a single hair of any Muslim anywhere in the world is hurt, the incident will come to an immediate end since all Muslims will act in concert. But if there is this fragmentation, if they act according to a policy of divide and swallow up, then it will of course be a simple matter to swallow up the small components. But it is impossible to swallow up the whole block of the Muslim world. Muslims must observe this obligation at once.
