Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9 TV dated August 19th, 2012
ADNAN OKTAR: "Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will not appear until innocent people are slaughtered." For instance now in Syria, inoffensive and immaculate young girls, children, inoffensive people are being martyred every single day. The bodies of those martyred young people are being collected in trucks, right? "Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will not appear until innocent people are slaughtered and He will appear when those on Earth and in the skies can no longer bear the killing.." So the terror and anarchy will come to such a state that people will say; "enough is enough!" When people come to a state that they cannot stand any longer, Mahdi will appear.
