Hesham Tillawi Interviews Adnan Oktar at Current Issues TV

Current Issues TV and Radio 

Join us  at 8:00 PM US Central Time this Thursday April 30, 2009 Live from Istanbul Turkey with  Muslim Thinker and Philosopher Adnan Oktar.  (pen name Harun Yahya)



"Born in Ankara in 1956, Adnan Oktar writes his books under the pen name of Harun Yahya. He is a world-renowned man of ideas. Ever since his university years, he has dedicated his life to telling of the existence and oneness of Almighty Allah, to disseminating the moral values of the Qur’an, to the intellectual defeat of materialist and atheist ideologies, to propagating the real Ataturk way and to defending the permanence of the state and the unity of the nation. He has never wavered in the face of difficulties and despite oppression from materialist, Darwinist and separatist circles, still continues this intellectual struggle today exhibiting great patience and determination."

( editor's note: Adnan Oktar's treatment of the subject of evolution is identical to the position of Evangelical Christians in their anti-science position. In fact the evolutionary theory is supported by the Holy Qur'an. See Evolution in the Holy Qur'an).

 Some of the questions we will be asking Harun Yahya:

1.  A large part of your works consists of books exposing the invalidity of Darwinism. Why do you concentrate so much on Darwinism? What changes will take place in the world when people see and admit the invalidity of Darwinism?  

2. Your books about Judaism and Freemasonry attract great interest. What kind of relationship is there between Zionism, Judaism and Freemasonry? 


3. Are friendly relations between Muslims, Christians and Jews possible? As you know, certain circles predict a clash of civilizations. Is such a clash inevitable? Can Muslims prevent such a clash?  

4. What do you think of the U.S. policy against terror? Is a world from which terror has been eradicated possible? How can that be achieved?  

5. There has been oppression going on in Palestine for more than half a century. What kind of path should Muslims follow in order for that oppression to come to an end?  

6.  Do you think there will be a positive change in American foreign policy regarding the Islamic world following the election of Barack Obama?

7. What do you think of the role of the Arab world with regard to Palestine? Do you think the Arab world in its present state can resolve the issue?

8. What do you think of the attempts to equate Islam with terror? How do you think this image of Muslims in the Western world can be eradicated?  

9. You concentrate very much on the foundation of the Turkish-Islamic Union and are one of the scholars who most emphasize the subject. When do you think the Turkish-Islamic Union can possible be established?

10. One of the elements attracting my attention on your web sites is your giving the glad tidings of the return of the Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him). A large part of Americans, particularly the evangelicals, are also awaiting the return of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh). Have you anything to say to Americans on that subject? What kind of environment must we establish at this time when we anticipate the coming of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh)?

11. Finally, do you have any message for the American people and Muslims living in America?
