There is great oppression in the world; problems such as civil wars, turmoil, brother killing brother and hunger are affecting the whole world, especially Muslim countries.
Mr. Adnan Oktar is bringing these topics into question and explains that the solution is Muslims being united, in other words the Islamic Union. One of those who accepted the calls which Mr. Oktar made for the unity of believers was Mr. Mehmet Sevket Eygi:

ADNAN OKTAR: Muslims are oppressed everywhere. They are saying; “What is this Islamic Union? The Mahdi of where? Why is it necessary to appoint a leader for Muslims? There is goodness in the dispute and friction of the ummah. The more the dispute, the better… The more they are divided and attack one another, the better.” Where is the goodness in this? What is right is: “There is a disaster in the dispute of the ummah and goodness in alliance.” The solution is the Islamic Union and for Muslims to appoint a leader.

ADNAN OKTAR: Allah reveals in the Qur’an that Muslims pray as such; “O our Lord, send us a sultan, send us a leader, send us a commander.” This is the prayer of Muslims. It is a verse. It is clear in the Qur’an that waiting for a Mahdi, a leader, a commander is a blessing and a beauty for Muslims and it is an act of worship. People have always waited for messengers. People have always waited for mahdis. Our Prophet (saas) says, “Hear the glad tidings of Hazrat Mahdi (as).” Our Prophet (saas) is telling us of the portents of the Mahdi. He tells us to watch for these. When these portents are realized, he says, submit to the Mahdi. Allah says for the Prophet Jesus (as) that “He is a sign for the day of judgment.” What do these people say? “Don't wait for any service from others.” In the Qur’an, Allah says; “Wait.” So He tells us to wait for a leader. He tells us that this is a blessing. For example, in the section of Talut and Calut, Allah sends Talut (saul) as the imam, as a leader. It is an obligation for Muslims to wait for a leader. They have to ask a leader from Allah. Muslims cannot be without a head, a leader.

Adnan Oktar: IT IS A SIN THAT MUSLIMS ARE NOT UNITED AND DON'T ACT AS ONE. IT IS A SINFUL ACT; SO IT IS A RELIGIOUS OBLIGATION THAT MUSLIMS ACT AS ONE AND ARE BROTHERS AND ARE UNITED AROUND A LEADER, ACCORDING TO THE QUR’AN. Muslims don't do this. SO WHEN THEY DON'T DO THIS, THERE CAN ALL SORTS OF TROUBLES. MUSLIMS HAVE TO ACT ON THIS OBLIGATION. I am always saying; let’s establish a Turkish Islamic Union with the leadership of the Turkish people. Every state will remain sovereign. Every state will have its own domestic issues handled internally. But they will have a spiritual leader.
