Adnan Oktar: One that is devout, fears Allah and acts rationally and logically, that is the kind of nation that Allah makes the standard bearer of Islam. That is the kind of nation to which Allah has given the task of disseminating Islam, insha'Allah…A nation that lives by such exemplary moral values, a nation that so lives by Islam. Ask anyone in the Islamic world. Ask who best lives according to Islam. They will say the Turks. It is the Turks who live most rationally, most justly and most consistently. They are very clean, immaculate. There is complete agreement. Everyone says Turkey should be the leader. Everyone in the Turkic world and the Islamic world says that.

Adnan Oktar: Turkey is a genuine model country for the Islamic world. In other words, it excellently understands and implements Turkish nationalism, excellently understands and implements Islam, and also possesses the type of structure that internalizes secularism. But all Islamic countries agree that it is the country that best applies and lives by Islam. Turkey is punctilious when it comes to cleanliness, understanding, life style and piety. This may be a legacy from the Ottoman Empire, the influence of Ottoman scholars. Allah produces this in the most excellent way, which is why I think Turkey is the country best suited to the leadership of the Turkish-Islamic world.
