Editor’s Note: Rasa News is a mouthpiece of fanaticism and deception against the Baha’is of Iran, and it would be a source of much entertainment if it weren’t so tragic. This latest news is true, though it sounds absurd. It reports on last Friday’s sermon (March 6, 2009) by the Imam Jum’ih of Zanjan. What the good Imam said though is a different matter. Judge for yourself.
According to Rasa’s reporter in Zanjan, Hojjato’l-Islam Muhammad-Taqi Va’izi stated in this week’s Friday Sermon, “The leaders of the Wahhabi [the ultra-conservative Saudi version of Islam] and Baha’i sects solely because of their worldliness resist obedience to logic and the Qur’an.”
He noted, “These wayward sects are the highway thieves of the path of humanity, and they have prevented those peoples from becoming acquainted with the true Islam and Qur’an.” …
Hojjato’l-Islam Va’izi, emphasizing the need to prevent the influence and propagation of the Baha’i and Wahhabi sects in the nation, stated, “The underground activities of these sects not only harm the country, but they also prevent the unity of Muslims.”
The Imam Jum’ih of Zanjan said, “The human rights organizations of the world have wrapped Western-style living in attractive covers so that the bitterness of their true lives might appear nicer in happier packaging.”

There seems to be so much fear in the tongue of Hojjato’l-Islam Muhammad-Taqi Va’izi as he describes his aims to preserve the “unity of Muslims”.
If only he would realize that the Bahá’í Faith could unify the citizens of Iran, independent of whatever background they may come from, more strongly in this day and age than anything every before.

Hojjato’l-Islam is fearful as are all other mullahs because Iranians are turning their backs on the mullahs by the thousands and are joining other religions such as yours. Mullahs are afraid of losing the mosque store and their livelihood. And since they have no education and have shown that they have no morals, no Iranian of sound mind would ever vote for them in a free society.
Over the past 30 years in power, Mullahs have killed, injured and tortured 1,000,000+ Iranians. They continue to stone Iranians to death, hang them form construction cranes, chop of their hands, feet and head and torture Iranians at an alarming rate. Mullahs justify their 7th century brute force on Iranians of the 21st century because they are on a suicide mission with destiny. There is no turning back for them. They have created a society where they have to kill in order to stay alive.

A European tourist visits Zanjan and finds that people at the local mosque are eating food there. The tourist asks Imam Jumeh: “but, isn’t a mosque for learning the Quran and saying prayers, and a restaurant for eating food?” Imam Jumeh replies to him, “no, we praise God and say prayers in our universities.” The tourist asks “aren’t universities for learning?” Imam Jumeh replies “no, the students are all in jail.” Then the tourists asks “but isn’t jail for criminals?” A man in the crowd yells out “No, they are all in charge of our mosques and our government!”
