Adnan Oktar: TURKEY IS A GENUINE MODEL COUNTRY FOR THE ISLAMIC WORLD. In other words, it excellently understands and implements Turkish nationalism, excellently understands and implements Islam, and also possesses the type of structure that internalizes secularism.But all Islamic countries agree that it is the country that best applies and lives by Islam. Turkey is punctilious when it comes to cleanliness, understanding, life style and piety. This may be a legacy from the Ottoman Empire, the influence of Ottoman scholars. Allah produces this in the most excellent way, which is why I think Turkey is the country best suited to the leadership of the Turkish-Islamic world.
