Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated September 24th, 2012
ADNAN OKTAR: You go on. Let us see.
DIDEM URER: Insha'Allah. Shall I read the info Master?
ADNAN OKTAR: Yes.
DIDEM URER: A few days ago, Oktar has attended the opening ceremony of the new building of the Grand Masonic Lodge of Italy in Rome as your representative. They had asked us to give this special lodge a copy of the Qur'an in Italian and to record it for A9 TV. We were the only TV channel allowed to shoot this ceremony. Oktar, as your representative, was hosted there as the guest of honor. Through the verses of the Qur'an, he explained the fact that Islam is a religion of peace and love, that it condemns violence and terrorism, and that those who believe in Allah should ally against irreligiousness. After dinner, your books; the Atlas of Creation, A Call for Unity and Islam denounces Terrorism were presented to the grand Masters as a gift. The Grand Master [of that Lodge] has forwarded his regards and his greetings to you and as your representatives, our friends were invited by other Grand Masters to bring a copy of the Qur'an to their lodges, insha'Allah.
ADNAN OKTAR: Oktar has given a discourse on the Qur'an and Islam, he has had a discourse.. Show us the pictures of that discourse. Masha'Allah. This is while he was presenting the copy of the Qur'an as a gift. The Qur'an is on the top. The Qur'an is on the very top on the table. Yes.. The Italian freemasonry is the strongest structuring in Italy. They reign over Italy in every aspect. It is the greatest lodge. And the kindness, greatness, fondness, love for the Qur'an and love for the Turkish nation, love for the Turkish flag are explicitly seen there. Show us their affection for the Turkish flag.
DIDEM URER: This is the first time a Turkish flag is ever placed in a masonic lodge Master.
ADNAN OKTAR: This is the first time a Turkish flag is ever placed in a masonic lodge.. Masha'Allah. Alhamdulillah. We have planted our flag to Rome, Alhamdulillah, to the center of Rome.
DIDEM URER: Alhamdulillah masha'Allah.
ADNAN OKTAR: Insha'Allah. With faith, with the Qur'an and Islam. And Oktar has spoken in length about the Qur'an, about Islam. That is very nice masha'Allah. This is the first time the Turkish flag has ever been planted in a masonic lodge. This is the first time they have had a copy of the Qur'an and they have placed it on the very top. Masha'Allah. Alhamdulillah. We would of course love such freemasons and they do love us as well.
