    By these arrests the world is seeing the continuation of a policy of harassment against the Baha’i community that has only brought the charge of hypocrisy to Iran’s clerical regime and shame to the religion of Muhammad the authorities are sworn to honor and observe. The prayers of the world -including those of Iran’s devoted believers -ask for the protection of all those abused by this benighted band of clerics who hold their countrymen in their grip.
