Adnan Oktar's statements along these lines have very quickly started to bear fruit, and steps have been taken towards the building of more amicable relations among communities that have been at loggerheads for many years. The most striking of these was the way Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad met with Jewish clergymen on his recent trip to New York and issued messages of love and friendship.

In his works Adnan Oktar describes how Muslims and the People of the Book (Jews and Christians) are friends and brothers, and how that friendship will bring peace to the Middle East and to the world. In his book A Call for Unity Adnan Oktar writes that Christians, Jews and Muslims all believe in the same God, believe in and love the same prophets, and all believe in the angels and Doomsday, and that there is therefore no reason why they should not be friends. In his statements he also concentrates on the need to treat Jews and Christians with affection and compassion. As that love and affection spread, all the disputes and conflicts between cultures in troubles parts of the world, and especially in the Middle East, will come to an end, and peace and security will prevail.


Adnan Oktar's statement to Azerbaijan Respublica in early September

Adnan Oktar: Faith groupings are of course possible, one may feel closer to people who share one’s own beliefs, and that is quite normal. But this is not something to weaken the bonds of brotherhood.  For example, WHEN I SEE A JEW I GO UP AND EMBRACE HIM, and I embrace my Christian brother when I see him...


Statements by President Ahmadinejad at a meeting with Jewish clergymen in New York on September 25:

"ALL WHO TRULY FOLLOW THE TEACHINGS OF GOD’S MESSENGERS ARE ONE ANOTHER’S BROTHER AND THEREFORE OUR MEETING TODAY IS A FRATERNAL ONE. ... If the teachings of prophets are followed, war and enmity will seize to exist... The Prophet of Jews is among Allah’s arch-prophets, and Muslims and Jews have co-existed peacefully in Palestine and other regions of the world for centuries."

OTHER STATEMENTS BY ADNAN OKTAR ON THE SUBJECT

Adnan Oktar: It makes no difference, we are all brothers. That would be to feed the enemy. It would be to feed the unbelievers. That is inappropriate for a Muslim. But, among other things, for exapmle love and affection are very important for a sincere Christian and a sincere Jew. IN OTHER WORDS, THEY ARE ALSO ENTRUSTED TO US BY GOD AND THEY ALSO BELIEVE IN THE SAME GOD. THEY LOVE THE SAME PROPHETS. A SPIRIT OF AFFECTION TOWARDS THEM IS VERY, VERY IMPORTANT. Some people look with envy and hatred. That is incompatible with the Qur’an. It is incompatible with the Sunnah of our Prophet (saas). Jews lived totally at ease in the time of our Prophet (saas). Christians lived totally at ease... We can eat their food. We can marry their women. You can go and sleep in their homes. One can talk to them. They are also servants created by God. That is the form in which God has created their destiny. (Iraq Al-Baghdadi-August 5, 2008)


Adnan Oktar- I like Christians very much. I like Jews, too. As a result of our activities in Israel, for instance, young Israelis came to believe on a large scale. Judaism is now much stronger in Israel.

Reporter- Can we deduce from your books that you are a supporter of Judaism?

Adnan Oktar- Of course, I want a Jew to be a good Jew. I want him to be devout. I want a Christian to be a good Christian. And I want a Muslim to be a good Muslim. I want churches to be full of Christians, and synagogues to be full of Jews, and mosques to be full of Muslims. I want everyone to love God and to realize that He exists. (Spain, El Siglo-June 11, 2008) 

 

 


Adnan Oktar: I have always felt love and affection for Christians and Jews. One can go to dine with them, visit their homes and THERE ARE ALWAYS BONDS OF FRIENDSHIP WITH GENUINE, HONEST CHRISTIANS AND HONEST JEWS... I have never been an anti-semite. Jews are descended from a prophet, are a holy race. They are descended from the prophets Abraham, Joseph and Isaac (peace be upon them all). I have always felt love and dialogue and joy towards Jews, and I feel a desire to protect them. I reject enmity and opposition towards them and wage an intellectual struggle. It is atheist Zionists I am opposed to. Unbeliever, faithless atheist Zionists. That has been my belief throughout my struggle against their actions and ideology. Otherwise, my love for devout Jews is obvious, and I also harbor a joyous love for Christians in the same way. The way they love God, love the Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) and love all the prophets is most excellent. (Aksam-April 23, 2008)
