Chief Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau: "No war, no bloodshed in the time of Mashiach"
(Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's live conversation with the Chief Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau, A9 TV, October 18th, 2011)
ADNAN OKTAR: Masha'Allah. Allah will insha'Allah bring us the days in which everyone from every religion will perform their religious observances freely, in which everyone's opinions will be respected. Insha'Allah that is how the times of the Mahdi (pbuh) will be insha'Allah.
There is no compulsion in religion. In Islam there is respect for every faith, there is no compulsion in religion. But of course, according to our belief, again according to the belief of the system of the Mahdi, we believe that Islam will dominate the whole world near the Last Day insha'Allah.
I mean it will be like the time of the Prophet Abraham (pbuh) insha'Allah, it will be like the time of the Prophet Moses (pbuh), it will be like the time of the Prophet Mohammed (saas) insha'Allah.
RABBI YISRAEL MEIR LAU: I can say exactly the same words. You've quoted the Qur'an. The same, Prophet Mica has said, "no war, no bloodshed" the same Mica said; All the nations will go and live everyone in the name of his religion, of his faith. We, the Jewish people, the name of the Lord Almighty forever. When the Pope John-Paul II, came to visit me in Jerusalem, I gave him the Bible and I wrote this verse from Mica, the Prophet; "Everyone, every nation will worship his Lord as he understands." We cannot assimilate, we must keep our tradition, our heritage to worship our Lord Almighty.
