Our beautiful planet is a small homeland which we can see from one end of it to another in a single click. We must give everyone on it a fair chance to live and to love. “The earth is but one country and mankind its citizens” has declared Baha’u’llah in the past century.
Our emotional attachment to our religious beliefs is not and must not be a ground for oppressing others and depriving ourselves of our own humanity. if religion be the cause of disunity, if the medicine makes the patient sicker, then toss it out have no religion.
The Baha’is of Iran and their daily increasing suffering at the hand o the Islamic Republic Regime in the name of a religion is a shame on the brow of the word religion. The Baha’i children and youth and their human rights is in the forefront of our thoughts. May the Divine providence give them a superhuman perseverance and patience.
