Seven members of the Bahai faith in Iran are to go on trial on Tuesday on charges of spying for Israel and of "insulting sanctities".

Six of the Bahais were arrested in May, 2008. The other one was arrested two months earlier. They were the leaders of the Bahais in Iran.

The Bahai faith is banned by the Islamic revolutionary leadership of Iran which considers it heretical.

Bahais claim some 300,000 members in Iran, where the faith originated.

What trial? Just like the one they had for the hundreds arrested during the aftermath of the presidential election? Those brave Iranians who dared to stand up and demand their votes be counted and ended up by being arrested, abused, and already condemned as foreign agents instigating the "velvet revolution?"

The shamelessness of the ruling fanatics has no bounds. I used to hear the following refrain from Shia's: Yazid ke be maadarash zena konad --- be digaraan cheha konad?

Well, these fanatics are out-doing the accusation they level against Yazid. They are arresting, torturing, and even raping their very own co-coreligionists simply because they find these magnificent sons and daughters of Iran impediments in their bloody rule.

So, what do you think they will do to these seven completely innocent Baha'is that they have kept in the dreadful Evin prison for over a year? They even have imprisoned their non-Baha'i lawyer.

It is high time that the children of Cyrus the Great reclaim their country and once again take their place as champions of human rights. Human rights for every human being on the face of the earth.

I want to thank all those brave and decent people, who with their words as well as their deeds, battle the forces of oppression and injustice in Iran and in any other place in the world. We must keep working at eliminating all vestiges of injustice and oppression.
