ADNAN OKTAR: "LET'S COME TO A COMMON WORD; TO ONENESS OF ALLAH...''
ADNAN OKTAR'S INTERVIEW WITH TASCA (TURKISH-ARAB SCIENCE, CULTURE AND ART ASSOCIATION)
ADNAN OKTAR: The Turkish-Islamic Union is in any case international. Something between brothers, let us say. Of course we hope to reach all the Turkic states and all Islamic countries,but Christians and Jews are entrusted to us by Allah. I feel a deep love, respect and desire to protect them. That is why I am especially keen for Armenia to be part of the Turkish-Islamic Union. I particularly want Israel to be in it. I want them to see the love, concern, interest, support and help they will be shown, how freely they will be able to live, and in what a friendly and warm manner they will be treated, insha’Allah. Look, the Jews have been faithful to the Prophet Moses (pbuh) for thousands of years. This is a most excellent thing. But they do not know. They may not have realized. They may not have understood the Qur’an. They are trying to incite people against the Qur’an. But everything began to change once they realized and understood. They began to understand the false nature of belief in the trinity. They Jews began having a better understanding of the conception of the Hereafter. It used to be in the Torah, but they took it out. Yet belief in the Hereafter can still be seen in the Torah. They began to strengthen that belief under the influence of the Qur’an. As these people were told about Islam and the Qur’an they at least began amending their polytheism and other false aspects. That is a great success and blessing. In one verse Almighty Allah tells us to “unite around a single word, the oneness of Allah...” That is the call we are making to them, and they are our brothers. Theirs is an old Islam, but has been corrupted. But that is an old form of Islam and they are the People of the Book. They are therefore people with at least as much right to love, respect and protection as Muslims. They will therefore live in peace and security.
