Exactly! Divide and conquer. The Americans have been using this trick since the USA was formed. First on the Natives of North America, Canadians (didn't work thank God), and recently Iraq. It's a smart move yet also one that can backfire utterly(Iraq Shiites giving trouble to American soldiers leading to war lengthening leading to USA economy suffering). It'll backfire and destroy the USA economy that's for sure. Down with those @sshole Masons and Zionist scum!

Yeah if the people are not part of their standards then they are not worth the effort. That's basically the problem with the world today as Eris just showed.

The so-called "freedoms people" subsidize the kassam-throwing Palestinensians.

Could the Palestinensians_please_stop throwing kassams to innocent people in Israel?

I, as a EU-citizen, do not want to subsidize Palestinensians who do nothing else but throw kassams at innocent people.

Shouldn't you stop worrying about palestinians and start worrying about what muslims are doing in Darfur. There is no genocide in Israel. There is in darfur. You are not worried about non-muslims being slaughtered. Yet cry buckets when a muslim suicide bomber gets killed.

Bahais are teh YOUNGEST... not the smallest. Whereas Islam is experiencing growth in only a certain few regions-- the Bahai Faith is currently the single most widespread religion in the world.

the baha'is worship a prophet they say is the return of jesus called baha'u'llah so if you be a christian didnt your jesus say to beware of such a prophet??? baha'is have many crazy beliefs thats why we muslims don't believe in them or want them around. and for religious tolerance ask a baha'i about why they be shunning covenant breakers who are baha'is also!!!!!
Baha'ullah is NOT the return of Jesus Christ... you really should try learning something first before you decide to open your mouth or type such ignorant nonsense

I actually agree with you. Obviously as a Bahai I pray that the persecution and systematic extermination of Bahais in Iran would end-- however I also do not feel that it is appropriate for the international community to side with Isreal and just ignore the atrocities that are being committed against the Palestinians either. Just because the Jews had to experience the Holocaust doesnt mean that they should just get a "pass" this time around when they are now officially the oppressors. It is never wise to turn a blind eye...

we dont have anything to do with them except that we are all brothers. my feeling on this whole situation is this: first the jew are focusing on oexpelling the muslims and christians from the country... then when they accomplish that-- who is next? What is going to stop them from expelling all the Bahais, Hindus and people of other religious minorities from their newly cleansed Jewish state? Just a thought...

again you never fail to showcase your lack of intellect.

Given the fact that Bahais do dont carry weapons, who do you think guards our temple, universal house of justice and archives? The Isrealis!

Also, I live in a large Palestinian/Lebenese community here, and I have come acrossed ANY that have had a problem with my religion-- and if you actually knew any Palestinians personally then you would know that they are not shy about voicing their opinions bluntly.

I beg to differ, we have clusters of Baha'is here in Las Cruces as well. They claim that Mohammad was the last prophet, and that Baha'u'llah is a manifestation of god...define manifestation?
