Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Conversation with Dr. Timothy Furnish, Istanbul, December 14th, 2008
TIMOTHY FURNISH: There are some in the West, in the United States and in Europe particularly, who probably would see an Islamic Union as a threat. What would you say to anyone who might see it that way?ADNAN OKTAR: This is a union that removes threat. It is a system that eliminates terror, violence and the concept of hostility toward other countries, that eliminates racial and religious hostility. There is a huge respect for other faiths in this system, and a feeling of protecting them, deep respect and affection for them and a conception of love, and a desire for all countries to be strong, healthy and at peace. There is no idea of any country being brought down, but one of all countries remaining healthy and good, of every country having its own color and beauty. That is why it is a system that eliminates threats. Because it is a system with no racial superiority, but one that is exceedingly respectful of other faiths.
