  • The plight of the Baha’is in Iran cenuintos to be a tragic example of intolerance. It should not matter what colour your skin is, what religion you belong to, what nationality you are, what gender you are, etc. To deny a group of people such a basic human right as access to education is UNACCEPTABLE!!!Our global society has advanced beyond our wildest expectations in the arena of science and technology amazing material advancement has been witnessed in the last century especially. Great strides have been made in eradicating prejudices of race, gender, nationality BUT religion cenuintos to be such a divisive and destructive force in the world despite the common thread that binds all of the great religions of the world together >the spiritual teachings to love thy neighbor, to not do unto another that which one would not wish done to himself, to serve others, to help the poor, to pray to the Creator, etc.The Baha’is long to live in peace in their homeland of Iran, to serve their country with pride and joy, to be a positive force for good in their country, to practice their Faith in peace. The governments of the world need to stand up and continue to express outrage at the way this government is treating these peace loving people. People of good will and agencies of good will need to do likewise.Jim Ferguson
