Sean Ali Stone

Sean Ali Stone Interview: Beyaz TV, Med Cezir (The Tide), May 3, 2012

PRESENTER: Oliver Stone, one of Hollywood's most famous directors. His son is also very famous. He is a director and an actor in the USA. Sean Ali Stone. Let me ask about the nature of his acquaintance with Adnan Oktar.

SEAN ALI STONE: Yes, actually, he found me through his people, who contacted me as soon as they I'd come to Islam in Iran, and they wanted me to meet with Mr. Oktar and I was very interested because they expressed to me that he is doing work on conciliation, in a sense, between the Peoples of the Book, peoples of the Abrahamic line, and so he's working with many Jews and Christians and even Masons; I'm a Freemason myself, so it was very interesting to me that he was open to this dialogue which is exactly the reason why I accepted Islam because I believe we need a dialogue of civilizations.

PRESENTER: The Stones also have Jewish origins, as far as I know. From the point where he's standing, does he make any self-criticism, I mean does he criticize his past or identity about the Israel-Iran relations?

SEAN ALI STONE: I think it's about time we have to make peace between the West and the East, and this is the region, the Middle East, is really the place where we're going to make that peace in the world.

PRESENTER: I wish there would be peace after 11/9. We can only talk about Islamofascism in the West right?

SEAN ALI STONE: No, because that's bad history. That's based on history from Harvard University and Oxford, acutally. It's a British Empire philosophy. The British Empire basically sent agents to the West, people like Bernard Lewis, to promote the idea of Islamofascism, to promote the idea of a clash of civilizations. They had this idea since 1979, before the Afghan war of the Russians and the purpose, the strategy for them was to create the clash based on the idea of radical Islam versus Western civilization. And this is not true. It's a lie, and it's time to put it to rest and realize that Christians, Jews, Muslims have lived historically together in this region, all over the world as well, in places like Serbia, Croatia, and China, Russia, America.

PRESENTER: Did he come to Istanbul to visit the Mahdi?

SEAN ALI STONE:  Am I looking for him here? Maybe I am, maybe, maybe. You know, I believe in Mahdi, I believe that there's a spirit of light that's coming into the world now. 2012 is a very important year, and everyone's consciousness will shift in a very rapid and transformative way. There's something that's inspired by God, by Light and you can't quite understand it according to old materialistic thinking; you have to have an understanding of faith, that there will be a transformation in the world now.

PRESENTER: Will we see the effects of his embracement of Islam in this sense?

PRESENTER: Will you really become an activist as a Muslim or not?

SEAN ALI STONE: We talked about this with Harun Yahya for example, and anyone who's a Muslim, so long as accept that Muhammad, peace be upon him, is a prophet, the last prophet of God, so even if you are a Jew, and there are many Jews who accept that, maybe they don't say that openly, but there may be rabbis, and they accept Muhammad and they would be Muslim, but they say I prefer to be, you know, in the tradition of the Torah and to protect the Torah. There are Christians who feel the same way. They do not necessarily believe that Christ is God [Allah is beyond this], they don't believe in the trinity and that concept, so they can still be Muslim, but they say they're Christian. I spoke openly to accept Islam, to say that Islam is the tradition of the Abrahamic religions; I am Jewish-Christian-Muslim.

PRESENTER: He changed his faith this year, in 2012, right? It's been a couple of months. How have his works been affected since then?

SEAN ALI STONE: You know, at the initial time there was concern from people we were working with; investors who were a little bit shocked, and they didn't know if this was some kind of radical move; if I'd lost my mind. But after talking with them, or with my producers, everyone knows that I have not changed. It has not affected me as far as I know in any negative sense. In fact, it's opened up some possibilities. Some people, I've met people like Harun Yahya and others who want me to come forward and speak and advocate as a peacemaker, let's say.
