ADNAN OKTAR: Mr. Erdoğan should give them identity cards. They should be Turkish citizens. He consistently asks people to get married and start a family.” But we already have 3 million people [the Syrian refugees in Turkey]. There is no need to keep them waiting.
They are all people with holy light; they are very hardworking, decent, and they are well-behaved. We had 3 million people. He should not let them go back to their countries and ask them to stay in Turkey. They can settle in any place they want in Turkey.
Mr. Erdoğan should grant citizenship to all our refugee brothers. He should give identity cards to all of them. I am waiting. For God’s sake, he should start this process immediately.

ADNAN OKTAR: I think Syria border entry points should be opened. This is a critical issue that all parties must support. We should write a letter to our Prime Minister and ask for it. The other day, those kids got stuck on the border; they were not let in. Borders should be opened; they should come in. They should come not temporarily, but permanently.
Those brothers who come here do this because they love Turkey and trust in this country. But we should not ask our brothers to come here temporarily. We should tell them to come and become our citizens. Moreover, we should record them as our citizens. They should be registered as citizens; they should all be made Turkish citizens. A law should be passed so that they can become Turkish citizens once they come to Turkey. We should lose no time to register them to Hatay. At least 200 thousand people, insh’Allah.”
