What we really want is for that unnecessary tension to be lifted from Israel and from Palestine and to put an end to the pouring of money on armaments and on war
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Interview on A9 TV dated September 11th, 2011
ADNAN OKTAR: Masha'Allah
Ms. BETUL: ""In the same way we were friends in Ottoman times, and there was a friendly compassion in the sense of humane friendship in the time of our Prophet (saas) so there will be a humane friendship, humane compassion now," he said." They have thus stated your words.
"Interfaith delegations from Israel have traveled to Istanbul to meet with Oktar on several occasions, most recently earlier this year. Two of his representatives are expected to arrive in Jerusalem sometime Sunday to meet with lawmakers, and expect to remain in Israel for several days, "stated the renown Israeli news site Israel National News.
ADNAN OKTAR: Yes. Oktar [Babuna] and Cihat [Gundogdu] are there. They will have some meetings with some Parliament members of the Israeli Parliament and with some leading figures. We do not want tension or conflict in the region. We are pleased at Israel's presence in the region. They are servants of Allah. Where are they supposed to go? What are they supposed to do? They have to settle and live somewhere in the world. Right? One cannot tell them just to go away when they come. That cannot be done. That is unbecoming. What we really want is for that tension to be lifted from Israel and from Palestine. There is unnecessary conflict and tension. The land there is vast. There are boundless lands there. And only a handful of people live there. The numbers of Palestinians and Israelis are very low. But the land is vast. The land is broad and fertile. Money is being spent on armaments, and on conflict and tension. Israel prevents Palestine becoming wealthy, Palestine prevents Israel becoming wealthy as well. There are walls, thick walls. These must all be eliminated. Let Israel relax and rejoice. Let Palestine rejoice as well. Let us do away with conflict. "What is the problem? What is it that cannot be settled?" we will ask. There is nothing that cannot be settled. If the problem is land, then help yourself and settle where you like. Right ?
Ms. BETUL: Of course, insha'Allah.
ADNAN OKTAR: If that happened, Israel would be one of the richest states of the region. Palestine would be one of the richest states of the region. I already regard Palestine as a state. There is a state there. They must therefore embrace one another.. Let them work in one another's workplaces. Let them send doctors and engineers to one another. Let the region be like Paradise. Why, my brother, is there the need for conflict or tension? Why is there the need for unease?
A dead-end, a predicament has been formed and the satan is just encouraging it. We will do away with that, insha'Allah, by the leave of Allah. And we will ensure that all our Palestinian brothers are free, insha'Allah. I refuse to accept even one Palestinian in prison. In the case of murder, then that is different, of course. Those responsible must be punished of course, there can be no excuse for that. But we do not want anyone detained for political reasons. We want Israel to live in complete peace, in the complete sense of the word. I mean, they have suffered for hundreds of years. They have never been at ease. Hitler came as a plague on them. He caused them to suffered. They made them suffer in Spain. They have suffered everywhere they have gone. This will be the first time ever they can live in peace in this world. And that will be the last time insha'Allah. We will strive with all our might to bring that about. My dear Palestinian brothers are also literally suffering the pains of Hell. We will bring a festive atmosphere to the whole of Palestine. The whole region will be theirs. They will live everywhere they like. They will be totally free enter and leave wherever they wish, insha'Allah. We will put an end to this fight insha'Allah, by the leave of Allah, through the Qur'an, the Sunnah of our Prophet (saas), love, affection, science and reason.
While that is so easy; the satan keeps stoking the flames. Satan first creates an impasse. There is a verse about it. Almighty Allah tells us to seek refuge in Allah "..from the evil of those who blow on knots" They constantly are stroking the blames. They first create an impasse and then stoke the flames. We will resolve this impasse and not allow them to stoke the flames any more. Insha'Allah, by the leave of Allah. [We will do so] As followers and the vanguards of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). And when Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) appears, we will become his crispin, we will be the guards of his shoes insha'Allah. I personally am applying for that mission, insha'Allah.
