"THE LAND IS OURS, THE WILL IS OURS"
Dear People of Istanbul,
This is the third anniversary of the treacherous coup and occupation attempt of July 15. On that dark night, we once more proved to the whole world that no power could stand before our nation, and nothing could chain up its national will.
Our nation stalwartly stood against the Fettullahist traitors and broke their arms.
It protected its independence and future. It taught a lesson to those who looked hostilely to our flag.
We are not done with them yet in this world and the afterworld. All the world should know that the Hill of Archers (on Mount Uhud) has never been, and will never be left. Our Land Watch is not, and will not be ended.
We are going to work harder to honor the memory of all martyrs and veterans who entrusted this country to us, in particular, Gazi Mustafa Kemal Atatürk.
All hail to the unsung heroes of July 15, soldiers, policemen, security officers, and veterans who wrote a heroic episode of history with their bare hands.
May Allah rest the martyrs' souls.
We will not forget July 15, our saintly martyrs, and gallant veterans, and will not let them be forgotten until waters of all seas of the world are dried up, and all mountains melt down.
This year also we are going to meet at Atatürk Airport where we spent that dark night till the morning, crying out "The Land is Ours, the Will is Ours", and commemorate martyrs and veterans with gratitude and prayers.
I invite all the people of Istanbul to this event which will honored by our President.
"May our Victory be Blessed.
The Future is Ours, Independence is Ours!".
