Dear Brave Soldiers, You have vanquished Iran's enemies

by MaryamJoon on

It appears that the indifferent and dishonorable will permanently be stricken from the pages of Iran's future.  

God Business is big business: Bahai Leaders confirm not caring about Followers 

Their claims are to be disregarded.  

God Business is big business: Bahai Leaders confirm not caring about Followers

Their fables resigned to children's books: 

God Business is big business: Bahai Leaders confirm not caring about Followers 

Their sad violin music will fall on deaf ears.

Baha'is participation in the war

by Yadam Beh-Khair on

My second cousin, was drafted to the military and was sent to the fronts. He asked his commander that he not carry a gun and be given other duties because of his religious beliefs. He was given the duty of collecting the corpses and driving them back away from the fronts. One day with a heavy load of corpses his ambulance gets a flat tire, while waiting for another ambulance to arrive they were spotted by the enemy and barrage of shells came their way. When the second ambulance arrives they had two more corpses to load, my cousin and his comrade..

The harm done has also left so many with scars so deep and perhaps even debilitating that can not be seen.  No physicians  can heal such damage.

They seem to function normally but taking a good look into their lives one can see the damage done by the wars.

Some are lucky to find someone that will love them despite it and through the horrors they recall. 

Others have no one.



These poor souls suffered more than Mona

And they actually did something to help the country.   


No 1st Amendment not "all of us" ... that's a simplification

by MaryamJoon on

As someone aptly put it about our Bahai "compatriots" - there seem to be few expressions of sympathy or concern sounding in those quarters, and if true to your name, you will see that some fair questions disappear in the still of the night: Dialogue with Haifan-Baha'i Leaders -- People Have Questions.  

First Amendment

All of us.............every single of us, regardless of our political and ideological beliefs and differences is truly and deeply indebted to every fighter who is or has ever been defending our beloved homeland, totally regardless of his banner, uniform, and arm patch..........

Use of mass destruction weapons must stop.

Past and present violators must be brought to justice.
