Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who gave a speech at the opening ceremony of the Religious Leaders Summit, emphasized the sectarian conflicts in the Middle East and reacted to the Assad regime. Prime Minister Erdogan compared the situation in Syria to the Karbala incident that took place 1,332 years ago and said, “We need to take an example from the prophets instead of painful events in history”.
ADNAN OKTAR: He is right, but there in Syria there is no conflict of religious sects. There is a struggle going on between Muslims and unbelievers. So there is a struggle between unbelieving communists, communists who are enemies of Allah and Muslims. There is no conflict of Alawi versusSunni. Alawis and Sunnis are brothers and sisters. There is no such thing. They believe in the same Allah and the same qiblah. There is no such conflict between them. Assad is also like a prisoner. He is a poor fellow; it is not like what people think. He is a man who has lived in fear and terror. He is a person who suffered all his life. Deaths, murders, plans of murder. Most of those around him are killers, people who kill others day and night.

Adnan Oktar: We stopped those who tried to cause corruption by discriminating between Alawis and Sunnis. They are silenced now and they cannot talk anymore. Alawis and Sunnis are brothers and sisters. Kurds and Turks are brothers and sisters. WE HAVE NO DISCRIMINATION OF RACES OR RELIGIOUS SECTS; WE WILL CARRY THIS CAUSE OF TURKISH ISLAMIC UNION RIGHT TO THE END HAND IN HAND, STRONGLY, LIKE CEMENT, INSHA’ALLAH. This is destiny and no one can stop this.

Adnan Oktar: RIGHTIST-LEFTIST, ALAWI, KURDISH, LAZ, CIRCASSIAN, SUNNI, it does not matter, we are all brothers and sisters and we are all servants of Allah. Allah showed us all a path and we will respect everyone’s opinion, but unity and solidarity are essential.

Adnan Oktar: I am all for preaching and practicing religion and Islam within a secular system, and I think that everyone would find peace in that because in any society there are unbelievers, there are Jews and there are Christians. They also have rights. They are also first -class citizens and there are also different sects. For example, there are Alawis and Jaffaris and they are all our brothers. We feel deep compassion for all of them and we would never wish any harm to them. I consider Alawis and Jaffaris as equals and brothers. They are the people of the Book as described in the Qur'an. But they are our brothers, sisters and friends in the Qur'an. They also have rights. We have to live in friendship and love with them.
