Grand Mufti Hassun said "We never use the term 'Islamic State'. We use Umayyad, Abbasid and Ottoman States. Because actually they were states belong to the world. Sultans killed their brothers in the name of state, not in the name of Islam."

"I'm neither Sunni nor Shi'ite. I'm Muslim..."

Grand Mufti Hassun also said "I am a secularist Mufti. I support the seperation of religion and politics. If someone asks me about my sect, I say, I'm neither Sunni nor Shi'ite. I'm a Muslim. Islam unites however sects seperate us under the guise of religion. I am the Mufti of all Syrians, I mean Muslims, Christians and also atheists. The countries like Turkey and Syria strongly need secularism to survive."

Perinçek: "You are the Mufti that Ataturk desired"

The Patriotic Party Chairman Doğu Perinçek speaking after the Grand Mufti Hassoun said "I coveted Syrian people while I was listening to your speech. You are the Mufti that our great leader Ataturk desired. Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran need secularism for living under peace and tolerance together with all sects."

Perinçek also said "I promise you that we will strenghten the secularism in Turkey. We will save our country from the US pawns."
