    They've got a good beat and you can dance to it.

    The first paragraph in that article looks like it was written by a liberal arts college dropout.

    I'm still not clear why they chose Iran to begin this belief. It's not been a progressive country with regards to personal freedoms.

    So many Baha'i have perished in Iran. :doubt:

    I am glad Israel is a welcoming country for this tiny religion, otherwise they would all be wiped out by now or spread out in other countries in the West.

    Indeed. There was no Israel when Baha'i was formed. But Israel protects them as well as the Gays, and all the other refugees from those who kill them in the arena as well.

    See thats what I don't understand, Israel takes in people from Middle Eastern countries that they do not want, people from other faiths, gays, etc I know Israel has even taken in refugees from Darfur, the Arab countries do not want anything to do with the people in Darfur. But yet, alot of people continue to chastise Israel and not want it to exist, boggles my mind.

    I have been to Haifa, Israel. One of THE BEST liberty ports ever experienced in my 20+ Navy career. Great people. LOVE America!
