ADNAN OKTAR'S ABU DHABI TV INTERVIEW (19 February 2009)
Adnan Oktar: Darwinism has now gone, to be replaced by Islam. People have seen that Islam is the truth, that it is reality. They even tried to make use of Kemalism. But Ataturk was one of the most perfectly devout people, the lion of lions, who closed Freemasonry down and was an anti-communist. “It must not be forgotten,” Ataturk says, “that communist is the worst enemy of the Turkish nation.” He says “it must be crushed wherever it raises its head.” Ataturk was anti-communist and anti-mason. That is the duty of the true Turkish nationalist. Because theirs is a masonic and anti-Kemalist organization. They depicted themselves as Kemalists despite being communists, and as Turkish nationalists, though they were neither pro-Turkish nor nationalist. That was a communist deception. They are now well infiltrated, but in my view things will turn out well, because our nation are opposed to them and very determined, insha’Allah. The army is determined, and the state and the government. All will be well, insha’Allah.
ADNAN OKTAR’S WEINERR ZEITUNG INTERVIEW (24 December 2008)
Adnan Oktar: Ataturk actually closed the masonic lodges. And he did so with grave insults and a huge anger, and he put an end to masonic activity at the time. And he is the only leader in the history of the Republic, and even in the history of the Ottoman Empire, to put a stop to Freemasonry. In that respect and all other respects, Ataturk was a flawless leader.
ADNAN OKTAR’S INTERVIEW WITH DAILY VAKİT (Istanbul, May 2008)
Adnan Oktar: The masons may have surrounded Ataturk, but he routed them, and that is what matters. He closed down their organizations and put a stop to their activities, and they could do nothing about it. That was a huge success, and few other leaders could have managed it. Nor has any such leader emerged. In the Ottoman period even the sultans were not able to oppose the masons. Despite being sultans, they were not strong enough. But Ataturk had the strength. He must be properly appreciated in that regard.
