“Bahaism” behind Iran unrest, says political analyst on Iran’s state TV
31-Dec-2009 (one comment)
Washington, 29 December (WashingtonTV)--The state-owned television of the Islamic Republic of Iran broadcast on Monday  a live interview with a political expert who blamed the Baha’i “sect” for the latest wave of unrest in Iran.

According to the Fars News Agency on Monday, Ne’matollah Bavand, told the network in this interview that “there is no doubt that Baha’ism, led by global Zionism, is behind these currents.”

Bavand’s remarks come in the wake of a violent crackdown on anti-government protesters during the observance of Ashura ceremonies last weekend, which left at least eight people dead and hundreds arrested.

“Baha’ism infiltrated the country’s management in the nineties,” said Bavand, adding that “some of the managers of that decade were influenced by Baha’ism and carried out certain projects.” >>>

January 12th Trial Date

by Ali Najafi on

January 12th is the announced trial date for the 7 Baha'i leaders, who have been held for more than a year in Evin Prison. My fear is that the IRI government will use this trial as a diversion from the internal problems in the country.
