Adnan Oktar: A period in which the Turkish Islamic Union does not exist will always be a period of misery. There is no other way. We can see this in the Caucasus or in other regions and we continue seeing this. This would never end and this bloodshed would not stop. The only solution is the Turkish Islamic Union. To delay this is a great sin. Therefore, we as the Turkish people, should work together with Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Turkey, East Turkestan, Kyrgyzstan and all the other Turkic countries to build this union immediately. Every passing day would be against us, may Allah forbid. Look, today the bloodshed in Georgia, the hardship of the Abkhazians, the suffering of the Russians, all these are a result of the absence of the Turkish Islamic Union. If Turkey proposes to them to establish such a union, believe me, we will receive a positive answer in 24 hours, Insha’Allah. Syria and also Iraq would accept this positively as well. There is no Islamic or Turkic state who would not accept such a union.

Adnan Oktar: THAT IS, ACCORDING TO THE QUR’AN, IT IS OBLIGATORY FOR MUSLIMS TO ACT TOGETHER, TO BE BROTHERS ALL TOGETHER, AND UNITE AROUND A LEADER. Muslims will fulfill this obligation. That is why I say that a Turkish-Islamic Union must be established under the leadership of Turks, the Turkish nation. Every state shall remain as a separate, sovereign nation- state. Every state shall act freely within itself but let there be a spiritual leader. You see the Catholic Christians have their Pope, so IT IS A MUST FOR MUSLIMS TO ALSO HAVE A SPIRITUAL LEADER. If there is somebody who leads that union, all these disasters and disorders will easily come to an end.
