Adnan Oktar: WE SHALL MAKE INTENSIVE EFFORTS FOR THE FREEDOM OF EAST TURKESTAN, THE TURKIC STATES AND THE ISLAMIC WORLD, but there is one very pressing matter. That is the unification of Azerbaijan with Turkey, because they are in the most appropriate position…But after that East Turkestan is most pressing. Because it is a prisoner. The horror of imprisonment needs to be placed at the head of the agenda. Because the priority must be wherever repression is at its most fierce. And that is where the priority now lies…The issue therefore needs to be raised and put before the public, by way of the press.Public pressure will wear China down. We will be working to force it into a corner in the days to come, in the major press, with full-scale announcements, in editorials and in television reports.
RFA: You mention this in your book Communist China’s Policy of Oppression and East Turkestan, since 1949 China has executed millions of Muslims among its own citizens, but when we look at the media what we see is the U.S. invasion of Iraq, Afghanistan and later Palestine. We see in the media how many people are being killed every day. But the most painful thing today is the thousands of people in East Turkestan executed and prisoned just for writing books or poems.Tens of thousands of people, but the world is silent. Why?
Adnan Oktar: EVERYONE WHO FAVOURS THE IDEA OF THE TURKISH-ISLAMIC UNION SHOULD MAKE A HUGE OUTCRY ON THIS SUBJECT. WE WILL BE STARTING OUR OWN WORK IN THAT REGARD IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS. We began with Azerbaijan. It is now the turn of East Turkestan. WE SHALL BE RAISING EAST TURKESTAN IN THE PRESS…
