  1. You're doing a great job in documenting these issues with multi-media presentations. I don't know of another blog that has covered a topic from so many authorative sources. Your work here is comparable to a NYTimes source, with much more staff and money than you have. Congratulations.

  2. I take no credit for this. It is the result of the sacrifices of many Egyptian Baha’is who continue to live through this struggle. The following quote from the Guardian of the Baha'i Faith (great-grandson of Baha'u'llah) clearly shows how these things tend to work out:

    "If only the friends could realize it, the glory of our Faith is not that people with unique abilities do the work of the Cause, but that it is done by the sacrifice of loving and devoted souls who arise selflessly to undertake work they feel themselves incompetent, sometimes, to achieve. God works through them and endows them with gifts they did not dream they could ever possess."

    From a letter dated December 12, 1943 written by Shoghi Effendi to an individual believer, published in Victory Promises, p. 17
    (Compilations, Quickeners of Mankind, p. 67)

  3. Thank you for bringing to our attention the persecution and systematic campaign to destroy the Bahá’í community in Iran.

    This is especially critical when many of the Hojateyya followers, which was established mainly to eliminate the Bahá’í community in Iran, hold critical positions in the current Iranian government.

    The letter published by the Bahá’í World News Service is another proof that the group is still active and is now operating from within the government.

    When will the Iranian people rise to enforce their will, and help Iran reach it potential and take its place in helping creat a better world, instead of exporting terror?
