Adnan Oktar: Of course the crisis has hit Turkey in a delayed way. That is true and it will continue to hit. But our people have a good aspect. Morality of Islam and the spirit of mutual cooperation are so pleasant. That brings an economic mobility in goods and money and it definitely will continue to bring. Therefore THE REFLECTION OF THE CRISIS IS NOT AS SEVERE AS IN EUROPE. IT WILL DEFINITELY NOT. However our actual salvation is by Turkish – Islamic Union. In that case let alone the crisis, people will almost be uncomfortable due to prosperity.

Adnan Oktar: At the beginning of the economic crisis, I said “This will last seven years and WILL GRADUALLY INCREASE ITS SEVERITY” and added: “This crisis will cause a crucial shortage throughout the world.” I said “Serious precautions need to be taken, immediate steps need to be taken from now on” and I expressed the only solution is to establish Turkish – Islamic Union. Otherwise the world will perish, become very miserable; I can openly express this. It will yield an economic shortage which has never been seen before all through the history. The only solution is Turkish-Islamic Union. Its abundance, beauty and peace will change things exactly in the opposite way… Allah created this economic crisis and people can by no means put an end to it. At the beginning, they did not attach much importance to this crisis and they said “It is trivial and temporary.” I insisted that it will last seven years but they said; “No. It will pass in a few months.” Again I objected and insisted “It will take seven years”. Now it is progressing in the way exactly what I said.

It has been reported that the developing world is faced with a financial shortage and these countries will be exposed to international capital flow because of high borrowing costs and lower credit levels. According to the estimations by the World Bank, Turkey has economically shrinked by 5,8 percent in 2009, while it will grow by 3,3 percent in 2010 and 4,2 percent in 2011.
