ADNAN OKTAR: Communism and fascism are the twin horns of satan. Communists are one and fascists the other of the peoples of Gog and Magog that ruin mankind. Mankind has a duty to strive against communism and capitalism. Turkish policy has always been anti-communist. Our security department and intelligence agency and army have always engaged in anti-communist activity. The special warfare office was also anti-communist. They opposed it most heroically. They never permitted it in any shape or form, otherwise communism would have settled here many times over but those rightist, nationalist young people stood up to it most heroically. They will never cross the Canakkale or take over Turkey, they said. The followers of the [Risale-i] Nur and our Süleymanlı brothers put their lives on the line. May Allah be pleased with them all. They kept communism out of Turkey. Otherwise they were absolutely determined before the September 11 coup. Turkey was literally finished, all the streets were under occupation.

ADNAN OKTAR: The aim in communism is not to make one particular region communist, but to make the whole world communist. Religion, the state and the family are the institutions opposed to communism. Eliminating religion, the state and the family is every communist’s aim. These are the first stage in the establishment of the dictatorship of the proletariat. They are engaged in communist guerrilla warfare now, they are still in the first stage. What does Marx say? “Religion is a structure produced by the ruling class in order to put the poor sections of society to sleep.” That is how they look at religion. That is all they can think of, their horizons are very narrow. Look, Marx says, “Religion is the opium of the masses.” The struggle against religion is therefore vitally important in communism. “Atheism is an inseparable part of Marxism,” says Lenin. And when religion goes, the state and the family go, too. In an address to communists at a university Lenin once said, “The teaching of the state, the pretext of the state, serves to legitimize social division and exploitation and the existence of capitalism.” In other words, he is against the state, religion, the family and moral virtues. That is the system they are trying to impose in the Southeast now. But we are waging an intellectual campaign against it. Military and police measures will not produce results. Only a scientific and intellectual campaign can produce results. An anti-Darwinist and anti-communist campaign. A totally scientific campaign with love and affection. Lack of love and affection again give rise to and encourage communism. Excesses, wild faces, totalitarian language, craziness, mafia-like activities and swearing will not stop communism, nor will counter-guerrilla tactics stop communism. Communism and atheism can be stopped with the collapse of Darwinism and materialism, with anti-communist activities, love, affection, compassion, valuing and respecting other people, living by Islamic moral values and encouraging others to live by them. These will produce results.
