Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9 TV dated August 15th, 2012
ADNAN OKTAR: Those who look carefully into the Middle East would see a struggle in between the communist world and the world of the believers. Noone was aware that Iran is taking sides with the communists, note that people have newly learnt that. We know them as the "Iran Islamic Republic" but they are a word-perfect communist country. The mosques are all deserted and empty in Iran. Go and have a look at them if you like. You will see that the mosques are all empty. Noone goes to the mosques. When the head of the state gives a speech they give sermon (khutbah) and they do so in the universities. The students of the university cannot go out anyway, so everyone there applauds. They give such sermons from time to time. The majority of the students are darwinists and materialists. I mean you can almost not find a student who is not a darwinist. You cannot see a person out on the streets who performs prayers. And people ask "Why does Iran support Syria?" Well, they support them because they are communists. They are supporting the PKK as well. For instance, Iran is known to be against the PKK yet that is not the truth. They share the same mindset.
