Evidently, the evil radical Islamic fanatic regime of Ahmadinajad that enjoy the silent sympathy of the African Muslim born Barack Obama is using the darkest torturous prisons of the Iranian revolution to persecute everyone that does not live by the barbaric Shariya laws of the 7th century Saudi desert. The Iranian Ayatollahs treat worshippers of other religions including Christians, Jews, Hindu and Bahai as enemies of radical Islamic Allah and the Islamic Prophet Mohammed who called for killing other religions worshippers or treat them as slaves.
The rushing to the nukes ad dirty bombs by Ahmadinajad who rules Islamic terrorists organizations all over the Middle east including Hamas and Hezbollah does not bother the failure in chief Barack Obama who claimed that only the foreign Islamic terrorists of al Qaida that come from different countries are his enemies while the Islamic terrorists of Ahmadinajad and Khumeini are his best buddies that financed his election campaign o US presidency.

Just another example of how AhmadiNUT-JOB's regime is a danger for the freedom of expression, freedom of thought, freedom of religion...VERY DANGEROUS not to have a separation of church/state- these radical shia mullahs rule the country and tend to be increasingly erratic, confrontational and desperate to hold onto power amidst a younger, better educated generation born post the Islamic revolution. What a struggle in our country to keep a distinct separation between Christian beliefs and a FREE gov't not influenced by any one religion, no matter how popular

You ppl post here nether understanding Islam or Baha段, Baha置値lah added nothing to Islam and therefore is only an excuse to divide, the very thing Baha置値lah himself claimed to worked against Baha置値lah and Mohammad both taught Unity of religion yet those that follow Baha段 separate themselves from Islam seeing themselves as superior.

Baha段 has become a political movement a movement that is underwritten by the British, Zionists and Americans to create divisions within faith.

Baha置値lah himself taught against violence yet a small majority of Baha段 take up arms and act violently towards there Islamic brothers.

Those that act against the law will be prosecuted to the laws full extent just as the laws of America and the British are upheld by them.

What do you call for? Anarchy.

I hate to interrupt all this ill informed ranting, but the fact is that Baha'i has long been illegal in Iran both under the Shah, who was supported by the US and under the Islamic revolution, which has apparently been leaning on them pretty hard. There is, however, no point in raving on about the president of Iran for a policy that was in place decades before he became a pol.

This is not to say that I support such repression, but just to point out that the usually parrots here are squawking with their usual venomous condemnations without ever knowing what they are talking about. Your complaints are little more than scatter shot name calling and therefore are useless because nobody will take them seriously.

A little study would be helpful.

Oh, and Race, the Shah used to have people shot in the street too and he was put in by the USA through the work of a man named Roosevelt, a nephew of the former president, I believe.

Can you only respond in insults, have you not logic to your argument?

Can I ask you how many people have dyed as a result as the 400million that the American government as allocated to terrorists organization such as MEK and Jundallah to brig anarchy to the peaceful nation of Iran.

Why not comment on the millions of Iranians that came out is support or the government in the days following the blasphemy of a few on the sacred day of Ashura.

Passions are running high in Iran and the general public is sick to death of the small group of dissidents that are intent on destroying the great nation of Iran for there own self interest. Some miss guided pro-government supporters have indeed taken the law into there own hands and acted unwittingly in ways that have harmed there much loved government and these vigilanties will be dealt with under law just as those that have deliberately acted against the popular freely elected government.

You are correct Baha棚 has been band for many years as Baha置値lah clamed to be a prophet when he only highlighted tenants of Mohammad痴 teachings and did not add anything new. If he had acted without self-interest dividing the faiths he would today be recognized as a great scholar of Islam but he chose to promote himself as a messiah. Those that follow his plagiarized teachings miss out on the other teachings of Islam and the full truth of Islam.
It must be understood that over 350thousand Baha棚 live in Iran and of them only 100 or so are the trouble makers.

Where are they then? Not even "Dear Leader" can find any connection between the protests and the above groups apparently?

Oh so it was okay when they protested the Shah on Ashura but not now that "God" is running the country?
How about the fact that the government were the ones who started the violence first? How is it okay for Government forces to murder people on Ashura?

Survival? For their nation not to be used for some "Pro-end times" prophesy? For a leader who gives tons of funding to Hezbollah while their economy suffers? Who plays retarded "I want nukes or do I?" games with the rest of the world, who thinks it's the end times?

Protest against the cruel dictatorship of the Shah were peaceful and non violent on Ashura there was no murder arson or other criminal activity as we have seen with this Ashura

This is just speculation on your behalf. All violence was clearly started by opposition as violence only hurts Islamic republic. it was not pro government forces that burnt public property and waged war on society.

It is clear you know nothing of prophesy, It is only Hezbollahs ability to counter strike the Zionists that stop them making overt war against Iran, Hezbollah plays a priceless defensive deterrent to the Zionists aggression

Years ago, in this country people of color could not enjoy the freedoms afforded whites. Just because the laws were in place for decades did not make them right or just, and it was the responsibility of each leader at the time to correct it, but they did not, and for that they are guilty of racism and prejudice and apartheid. Finally the law was changed. I fail to see the diff between that and what your saying. Oh....Wait, your saying that its ok of iran to keep doing it.

Just because I am supporting the Persians who are dying today, and condemn the current regime, do not try and put words in my mouth and say I support the shah. I would by typing the same words here today if he were still in control.

Do you really think nobody sees thru your arguments?

Oh and for the zillionth time.... YOU DO SUPPORT THE REPRESSION BECAUSE YOU REFUSE TO SPEAK AGAINST IT! HERE'S A DOLLAR GO BUY A FRICKING CLUE!

Instead of making nonsensical accusations, how about you just stay on topic and defend the regime that killed Neda?
Trying to deflect the focus from the Murdering Regime in iran by spouting useless rants against the USA is stupid.

If you want me to defend a particular Policy of America then post your question there, not here.

It if tiresome to watch you mouthpieces come on a thread that is critical of the regime (as if there were any other type) and try and call everyone else sheeple when you are actually the one behaving in the programmed fashion. Its only an insult if its not true, and in your case, its no insult.

Oh, and why are they being percecuted in the first place? I thought iranians enjoyed more freedoms than Americans? Your parrot head president jibber-jabber said so. Are you calling your leader a liar? I am.

Is it that you don't read well or is it that you have difficulty in comprehension? Ranting about the president of Iran as the villainous nemesis of the Baha'i is rather like raving about the governor of New Mexico as the nemesis of the Zuni when he is really just the fellow that happens to be in office at them moment. It would be nice if he would use his office to improve the lot of the repressed, but he neither started it nor is he likely to finish it. So, why not find out what is going on instead of just raving?

Most of Ashura wasn't violent. The only people who were murdered were protesters and bystanders, name how many Cops died? ZERO, named how many Basij died? ZERO. I suppose protesters somehow stole hundreds of police uniforms also and decided to beat their own people for the hell of it?(I bet you seriously believe that)

They were peaceful until the riot police started attacking. Then they fought back and got their revenge.

Ha, Bullshit, Hezbollah only causes dozens of innocents to die by baiting Israel into bombing raids, they don't ever succeed in anything except carnage. If Israel really wanted to destroy Iran they would just have Mossad set off a nuke and claim it was a Government test gone wrong.

It helps that they had buses to help bring people in. The fact that people protested on Ashura despite having thousands of armed police says alot as well.
