Iftar Meeting At Ciragan, October 16- 2008
Adnan Oktar: When Turkey plays the role of the eldest brother, there is no one in that geography that would not accept this role. Neither Shiites, nor Ja’faris, Saudis or Persians. For instance, when Mr. Ahmedinejad came here; he fulfilled his prayer in a Sunni Mosque behind a Sunni imam. What does this mean? If you become the leader I will comply with it. This is clearly what it means. “I”, he already stated that, “gave a political message here”. He said “I gave a very important political message.” What else should he say? Hezbollah would agree as well, everyone would agree, there is no one in this geography who will disagree with Turkey’s leadership. This is because Turkey is a very mild, loving and reasonable country. Its people is respectable and gentle, they are highly intellectual and cultivated. And as you know, it is a country that was a leader for years. It has an experience deriving from the Ottoman.
Turkey will come into the picture as the eldest brother of all Turkic countries and of all Islamic countries. And everyone will see it. I state this very clearly and I will write my name on it still, ten years later from now on, InshaAllah.
