Sorry, I do not have a link for this, so I am providing eyewitness accounts from my boss' relatives in Iran. My boss' brother is Jamal Khanjani, one of the national Bah'ai' leaders in Iran.
In May of 2008, the entire national leadership of the Bah'ai religion in Iran were imprisoned on trumped up charges, which include spying for Israel and insulting Islam. One of their lawyers, Shirin Ebadi, the Nobel laureate, has been exiled from the country, and their other lawyer is now also in prison.
The stakes are very high here. The prosecution is seeking the death penalty, and now, with no attorney to represent them, their future looks bleak. In
I was in the middle of posting this, and looking for a link. The Bah'ai' leadership have all been executed, according to Iran's leadership. The executions were carried out about a week ago, and were announced today. There is now a link here.
A religion is known by the fruits it bears. Know, then, that Islam is a false religion, and a devilish one. May what they have wroght come back to them. I am sorry. I cannot say much right now. I am going to log off for a while.
EDIT: I just talked to my boss on the phone. He has told me that the New York Times article is a false story. He had talked to his family in Iran today, and the word is that they are still alive, and their trial is next Tuesday. Whew!! Please pray for them.
