Adnan Oktar: The Prime Minister doesn't say ‘I am doing this out of thoughts of racial superiority ’, [on the contrary], he says, ‘I want Islamic Union’. And the system of the Mahdi is approaching with firm steps, while Tayyip Master keeps helping the Mahdi system.
There is a Mahdi movement in Turkey. Our Prophet (pbuh) says, ‘Mahdi (as) will emerge from Istanbul’. So there is this beautiful movement in Turkey, confirming these words of Prophet Mohammed (pbuh). Our Prophet also says that there will be holy relics in the place where Mahdi (as) is and the holy relics are in Istanbul.

Adnan Oktar: The Sun rises where it sets and sets where it rose. This is usually like that. So if the sun set here, it will rise here. This is the first thing I believe and the second thing I believe, which is even more essential, is that the Mahdi will emerge from Istanbul. There are many hadiths confirming this. It [the place where Mahdi will emerge from is] shown as Constantinople. And also there are many hadiths explaining how the Turks will play a great role in this and the Mahdi will emerge from amongst the Turks. The historical conditions also point to the same outcome, as do the social conditions and the general course of developments in the world; Turkey emerges as a natural leader.

ADNAN OKTAR: Tayyip Master has to pursue a policy that embraces everyone. It is not easy to have a balanced policy, but it is possible and it is reasonable. For instance, they can have a compassionate tone towards Israel. He can have a loving, embracing language towards the Jews. He could send a message along the lines of, ‘I am against these practices, but I love the people of Israel’ and ‘I am sympathetic towards you.’

ADNAN OKTAR: Tayyip Master should make his Ataturkist side even more pronounced and he shouldn't trust the bigots at all. He should emphasize his modern side. He can express his displeasure towards Europe [the European Union], but he should be very loving towards the European people and make it very clear that he loves them all. He should say he loves the Americans. He can express his disapproval of the actions of the CIA and some [American] politicians, but he should make it very clear that he loves the American people. He should praise European art and should embrace and protect everyone, including the atheists.

Adnan Oktar: It is essential that the good-will, love, compassionate and embracing attitude of the Turkish-Islamic world, AND ESPECIALLY TOWARDS THE CHRISTIANS AND JEWS IS MADE KNOWN AND ALSO, WE HAVE TO MAKE IT KNOWN THAT WE ARE VERY DETERMINED TO PROTECT THEM. They need to feel and understand that we will not be separated and that they are our own, our family.
