Destroying Qaemshahr Cemetery – Again


(January 19, 2009) Yesterday around midnight a truck and a bulldozer accompanied by undercover agents stormed the Baha’i cemetery in Qaimshahr. They proceeded to fire shots in the air, and use the heavy equipment to remove gravestone and to flatten the ground. Pictures of the devastation can be seen below:

    It is bad enough that the Islamic Revolutionary authorities have consistently imprisoned, tortured, and killed Baha’is. But they cannot even leave the dead alone. Despite all this, all the UN can manage is a minority of nations passing resolutions condemning Iran’s blatant abuses (the majority of nations vote abstain or against). As long as the UN cannot summon real enforcement mechanisms, few minority populations are safe from arbitrary acts of tyrannical and oppressive regimes.

    I await the fulfillment of Baha’u’llah’s promise about the Iranian clergy: “From them mischief hath proceeded, and on them will it recoil.”

    It seems these people dont have a sence of understanding that Prophet Muhammad said two things clearly, That we can not refuse Air and water to the world of humanity what that means is that we can not kill any human life. We as the world of Humanity can not let this happen each and every one has to come out and stop these type of un healthy practice, in this world.
