Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9 TV dated July 26th , 2012
ADNAN OKTAR: Joel must listen to this. Joel dishonestly says that we have declared Christians to be the antichrist. For one thing, I espouse the way of the Mahdi. I am someone who completely goes along with the hadiths of the Messenger of Allah. I act in the light of the Prophet (saas) and the language of Bediuzzaman and what they say. So what he says is completely wrong right from the outset. Look, Bediuzzaman says; "the individual antichrist that will be killed by the sword of the individual Jesus (pbuh)." The Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will kill the system of the antichrist, he says. In other words, Christians are the anti-antichrist. How can they be the antichrist? They are anti-antichrist. Christians are a system that will kill the antichrist. Look, he says, "the individual antichrist that will be killed by the sword of the individual Jesus (pbuh)." In other words, he says that Christians will kill the antichrist. He says they will destroy the system of the antichrist under the leadership of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh). That is what Bediuzzaman says. So Christians opposed to the antichrist are our allies. Christians are not the antichrist, but the anti-antichrist, the exact opposite of the antichrist. "The collective personality and the huge statue of materialism and irreligion embodied in the antichrist," in other words, the collective personality of Darwinism and materialism, their predomination in the universities and schools of the world. "... will be destroyed," look, he says, the system of the antichrist will be destroyed, "by the truly pious followers of Jesus (pbuh)." So how can they be the antichrist? Where did you get that idea from? What does Bediuzzaman say? He says they are the anti-antichrist. "The antichrist will be destroyed by the truly pious followers of Jesus (pbuh)," Christian priests and religious figures that is, "who will blend the essence of true Christianity with the essence of Islam," with the truths of the Qur'an, blending the truths of Christianity with the truths of the Qur'an and Islam, "and rout the antichrist with their combined strength, in effect killing him spiritually" says Bediuzzaman, in the Rays.
Look, Bediuzzaman says, "Missionaries," Christian missionaries, "and Christian spiritual leaders and the followers of the Nur (Light) must be on the alert. Because the northern current," the Leftist, communist current in other words, "in the face of the attack of Islam and Christianity," in other words, in order to defend itself from the attack of Muslims and Christians who form an alliance, "the antichrist will seek to damage the alliance between Islam and the missionaries in order to protect itself." Be careful, he says; the antichrist will try to annihilate the alliance between Christians and Muslims. Now if Mr. Joel does that, if he tries to do that, if he tries to wreck the alliance between Christians and Muslims, who will that be helping? Let us not answer that question, but let him figure that out himself instead. He should try to strengthen the alliance, not wreck it. He is doing harm with such dishonest statements.
Look, "A zealous and self-sacrificing community known as a Christian community but worthy of being called 'Muslim Christians,' that seeks to unite the reality of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) [true Christianity] with the reality of Islam, will kill and rout that society of the antichrist under the leadership of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) [under his personal leadership], thus saving humanity from atheism." In other words, he says the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and Christian spirituals who act together with him will destroy Darwinism and materialism, but they will come by that power by uniting themselves with the truth of the Qur'an.
