The Turkish-Islamic Union means salvation for the whole world
(Abu Dhabi TV, February 19th, 2009)
REPORTER: So it would seem from what you say that the Turks will be Muslims' leaders in the future. Do you not think other Muslims, Arabs, might not oppose this?
ADNAN OKTAR: They have no other option. Syria wants to unite with Turkey, and Iraq. And if Syria and Iraq want it, so will everyone else. Azerbaijan wants it, and Armenia wants to unite with Turkey. Georgia wants it, so what else needs to be done? It is a union that will also include Lithuania. It will be a union that includes Lithuania, Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan and East Turkestan and all of them. As far as Libya. A Turkish-Islamic Union will emerge that stretches as far as the coast and interior of Africa. Turkey has prior experience, experience from the Ottoman Empire. And this time round, the errors of the Ottomans will not be repeated. The perfect aspects of the Ottomans will be adopted, but not their errors or deficient aspects, and a perfect union will result. This also means salvation for America and China and Russia. It means salvation for Israel and for the whole world. Thanks to it, the EU will be very rich, and will be stronger and able to be at ease. Because we have all the oil and minerals. They are all in Turkish-Islamic countries; we have all the underground resources. We will sell them all those riches, and we will use them and build facilities, and we will construct civilizations, and they will be at ease, and so will we, insha'Allah.
REPORTER: Some politicians say the future belongs to China, or that India will be the leader. That America and the EU will fall. But you say the Turks will be the leader. What makes you say that?
ADNAN OKTAR: China has currently struck rock bottom because of the economic crisis, it has lost all its strength. That means it needs Europe and America, and since Europe and America will collapse, China will collapse, too, and when you cut two legs off a table the whole thing collapses, the third and fourth legs, as well. That is why China needs Europe and America. But the Turkish-Islamic Union is not a country in need of anywhere; it is on lands with wealthy resources, with a workforce and a young population, a dynamic and active population. And it is developing, it has not fully grown. It is like a 9-year-old child, vigorous. But Europe has grown old, and is in its 70s, while America is 50-60 years of age, about to enter old age.
