Adnan Oktar: By Allah’s leave, Turkey will be a great country.The Turkish-Islamic Union will be established. Turkey will embrace the whole of the Middle East AND THE WHOLE OF THE BALKANS, Asia WITH AN OLDER BROTHER SPIRIT, INSHA’ALLAH. And an excellent system will emerge. The Caucasian pact is being set up and there is a railway project, as you know. There are petrol and natural gas pipeline projects. Islamic Union meetings are being held. There is work to make Turkish Union stronger. These things are all auspicious, Insha’Allah. Anatolia has always been the cradle of civilization, you know. That was also so in Ottoman times.THEY ADMINISTERED THE WHOLE OF THE MIDDLE EAST, THE BALKANS AND THREE CONTINENTS FROM HERE. THAT IS HOW IT WILL BE AGAIN, BUT WITH A SPIRIT OF LOVE, FRIENDSHIP AND BROTHERHOOD.

Adnan Oktar: The Balkans has always been Ottoman soil up until the inlands of Italy. UP UNTIL THE VICINITY OF ITALY, THE WHOLE REGION WAS LAND OF OTTOMANS. EVERYWHERE YOU SEE THE SIGNS OF OTTOMANS, THE BEAUTY OF OTTOMANS. THOSE PLACES WILL BECOME A CITY OF PEACE, A TERRITORY OF PEACE WITHIN TURKISH ISLAMIC UNION… TURKISH ISLAMIC UNION WILL OFFER THEM ONLY ABUNDANCE, RICHNESS AND PEACE. Turkish Islamic Union.

Turkish Foreign Minister Davutoglu: “Our souls’ homeland is Sarajevo”
Waiting for this moment for 150 years
After paying a historical visit to Sarajevo, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu met with Romanian citizens of Turkish and Tatar origin in Mecidiye town of Constanta, Romania and participated in the celebrations of Ramadan Feast, Eid al-Fitr.
In his speech here he said this Ramadan Feast was very special for him. “I spent the Night of Power in Kosovo, then on the first day of the Feast I was in Sarajevo. And now, on the second day of the Ramadan Feast I am in Constanta. I have been deeply touched by this Ramadan Feast” said Davutoglu and continued; “A part of my mind is occupied with Constanta just as Libya, Syria and Sarajevo. Romanian citizens of Turkish origin were never far away from our minds and hearths.”
Before visiting Constanta, Mr. Davutoglu also had a speech in Sarajevo in which he explained his feelings with the words, “Today when we greeted each other in Gazi Husrevbey Mosque, a Bosnian brother hugged me and said: ‘We have been waiting for this moment for 150 years’. We are late to come here. But I hope we will not be late again, Insha’Allah.”
