Presenter: What are your comments about the global crisis?
Adnan Oktar: NOTHING WILL HAPPEN TO TURKEY. Nothing will happen to the Turkish Islamic countries. On the contrary, there will be prosperity and abundance in those places. Here comes the age of abundance and prosperity Insha’Allah. By the leave of Allah we will enter the Golden Age. Turkish countries will be happy, joyful and live in comfort. These crises are temporary indeed. They do not actually affect us but we of course do not want America to be affected because of the crisis. We do not want the Christians to be in dire straits. We will do our utmost regarding that Insha’Allah.

Adnan Oktar:Of course the crisis has hit Turkey in a delayed way. That is true and it will continue to do so. But our people have a good aspect. Morality of Islam and the spirit of mutual cooperation are so pleasant. That brings an economic mobility in goods and money and it definitely will continue to bring them. Therefore THE REFLECTION OF THE CRISIS IS NOT AS SEVERE AS IN EUROPE. IT WILL DEFINITELY NOT BE SO. However, our actual salvation is by the Turkish–Islamic Union. In that case,forget the crisis, people will almost be uncomfortable due to prosperity.
