Mr. Adnan Oktar has emphasized many times on his live programs that favoring a race means fascism. On a recent TV conversation, he once again reminded viewers this issue and said only staking a claim on the Turks is not right, distinguishing between the people of other races is fascism, this is inhumane and is counted as Haram in Allah’s sight.
Mr Erdoğan on the other hand, made a statement about thinking only your own race, or not claiming people of the Middle East from different races and beliefs would be fascism and an act which is unsuitable .

Adnan Oktar: Arab or Kurd, they are human too. Aren’t our Kurdish ladies, Kurdish mothers our people as well? Aren’t Arab children also our children? Had we only favored the Turks, we would be fascists no matter what you do. We are done if that happened. We would lose our humanity may Allah forbid. If we said “Turks only” and said to the Arabs “it doesn’t make a difference if you die”, then may Allah forbid, we wouldn’t have a right to take shelter in this world, or the Hereafter. This is a great cruelty.

Adnan Oktar: It is fascism to desire to divide Turkey. It is fascism to ask for a race to dominate a certain place. It is fascism to love a single race.

Adnan Oktar: We need a notion of Turkish Islamic Union, a unity of Islam which embraces everyone, cherishes everyone, which shows compassion to everyone may they be Christian, Jewish, atheist, a notion which protects everyone. Not a mentality which sees fit to kill someone who doesn’t pray, or who doesn’t give zakat, or who shaves his beard five days in a row. This is not Islam, this is a system of terror. This is fascist thinking. It cannot even be explained by fascism, it is a very tyrannical system. Therefore especially emphasizing this is very important; the understanding of Islam, which is embracing, loving, compassionate.
