Prof. Dr. Süleyman Kızıltoprak, who made the opening speech at the conference, said, "Today, we are hosting a very valuable guest. Our guest, who is loved and known in the Arab world, is a journalist and writer, as well as an advisor to the Qatar Minister of Youth and Sports for many years and president of the Turkish-Arab Journalists Association. "We invited an intellectual name to our university. I would like to thank Mr. Turan Kışlakçı for his participation" and continued as follows:




Jerusalem is a very valuable land for us, it is a part of our history. It is possible to trace our presence here back to Tolunoğulları. Afterwards, the Akshits dominated here. After the Turkish domination began in this region, our ancestors did not want to build a more magnificent structure than the Dome of the Rock, the symbol of Jerusalem. Because the Dome of the Rock is a structure in which it is proven that there are footprints of our Prophet. Our ancestors carried out the construction of Jerusalem by respecting this fact. Perhaps the city with the most written works in the world is Jerusalem, and most of these works were produced by the Turks. That Jerusalem is in great trouble today. This city has been located in the region where innocent people lost their lives for a long time and is remembered with pain, lawlessness and massacres. We will continue to keep this fact on the agenda so that new fascist movements do not arise in this region.


We are experiencing similar pain these days. We sacrifice martyrs for our country. We live in the lands of martyrs in Kütahya. Our state gives the necessary response to those who have the courage to shed the holy blood of our Mehmetçik. Dear young people, you will also give this answer. You will provide greater service to this nation by experiencing peace, friendship, truth, fairness and justice in this country, and by removing those who threaten the well-being of this country, or by bringing them to your correct stance, as Mevlana did. I have full faith that our students will achieve this. I wish God's mercy to all our martyrs and our martyrs in Palestine. Thank you for your participation.
