Adnan Oktar: The Turkish-Islamic Union espouses peace, love, brotherhood, helpfulness, courage and altruism. The Turkish nation is one used to hardship and one that desires to serve. It has governed three continents and has experience. It has experience of state, experience of empire. We wish to administer the whole region as leader of the Turkish-Islamic Union by bringing that experience to the fore once again. And that is what everyone wants. The Syrians want it, and the Iraqis, and Egypt and even Armenia. Azerbaijan and Turkistan want it. East Turkestan wants it. Everyone wants it. Everyone trusts in Turkish justice, Turkish rationality and Turkish altruism, and Turkish troops are very popular everywhere in the world.
