Norway’s Muslims’ efforts to protect the Oslo Synagogue Accords with Adnan Oktar’s views of co-existence of Muslims and Jews


The  largest independent weekly Jewish newspaper based in the United States, The Jewish Press, published an article titled “Young Muslims to Protect Oslo Synagogue as Jews Pray in Norway” by the journalist and Middle East news analyst Hana Levi Julian on February 18, 2015.

In this article, Hana Levi Julian writes about the Peace Ring formed by the Muslim and Jewish community of Norway to protect the Oslo Synagogue after the anti-semitic attacks against various Jewish centers and residences across Europe.

In this article Hana Levi conveys Mr. Adnan Oktar’s views stating that Muslims and Jews must co-exist. According to the Qur’an, the places of worship of Christians and Jews must be protected. Here is an excerpt from the article:

“Turkish Islamic scholar Adnan Oktar warned Muslims to protect Jews and their synagogues as far back as 2008: “The world ‘Israel’ is the name of Prophet Ya’qub (Jacob), peace be upon him, who is praised in the Qu’ran and remembered with great respect by Muslims,” Oktar writes. According to Qu’ran 22:40, Muslims must protect synagogues because they are places of worship. So why should members of the two religions not live together in peace?”

Oktar also warns Jews must “act in accordance with the moral valued and character of the King Messiah as revealed in the Torah. Judaic sources describe how the King Messiah will be a just person who protects the weak, honest, loving and peaceful and make the world a place where everyone lives together as brothers in peace and security.” His writings on Muslim co-existence with Jews and other topics are translated into Norwegian in a special section of his website.”
