"Bahá’ís the world over are encouraged by the Supreme
Body to supplicate the Almighty, during the potent season of the Fast, for the
protection and well-being of the people of Iran. We are confident in your fervent
and heart-felt response."

Thanks Arthra - Could you please post a couple of the news items?

Life is busy at the moment and I have not been following current affairs.

The wife and I work 350km apart, so spend a lot of time travelling & do not have radio reception most of the time.

Thanks for the continued informative posts

Regards Tony

While this is terrible, there are worse things that have been done, but the state of mind of people who will do this to others is a tragedy in light of what human potential can be. It far more reveals the persecutors than the Baha'is. It's truly silly. To control others in this way is the opposite of humanity.

Ya Baha'ul'Abha!!

These blessed souls are doing their part. They have become the very pillars referred to in the Book of Revelation:

. 3:11 "I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, so that no one will take your crown.

3:12 "He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write on him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God, and My new name.

3:13 "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'

thank you dear brother, Bill. but I guess I am not as courageous as you think. I have not been tested about my courage till now specially as I am a new Baha'i (one year) but other kinds of tests here are worse than "courage". I should hear almost everyday opposing, and offensive things about our faith and for a new believer these are big challenges cuz sometimes I think "what if they are right and I am wrong?" and this is sometimes a VERY big torture, VERY big. also I can't have hard cover books which is the wish of anyone who has accepted a faith newly. yet there are those other kinds of difficulties (physical tortures) as you all know (and I have not been subjected to). my prayers (just as yours) goes for those in prisons and restrictions here and all around the world :)
