Persecution of the Baha'is of Iran: Updates

There are some important updates for those of us following the escalating oppression of the Iranian Baha'i Community.

There is a new blog recommended by Barney called Iran Press Watch: The Baha'i Community

Barney also has news of a "petition" that was to be distributed at Friday prayers in Teheran, the Iranian capital calling for the dissolution of the Baha'i administration (which doesn't exist by the way).

Meanwhile the UK government has expressed concern over the treatment of the Iranian Baha'is

As usual these most recent outrages against innocents for no other reason than their religious beliefs will not succeed. They only expose the moral bankruptcy of the perpetrators. Let freedom of religion ring in Iran and throughout the Middle East. Let it ring now!
