Some notes on the early relationship of the Baha’is with the Zionists…

On May 14, 1948, the Arab village of al-Nuqayb, where ‘Abdu’l-Bahá had owned land and grown grain, was depopulated in the fighting which broke out after the U.N. General Assembly’s adoption on November 29, 1947 of the Partition Plan for Palestine.

Al-Nuqayb (transliterated as Nughayb in the Bahá’í orthography) is mentioned in Lady Blomfield‘s The Chosen Highway, in the sectioned titled Bahá’í Villages.

The Master bought from time to time some land in various villages. Asfiya and Daliya, near Haifa–these two properties He bestowed upon Diya’u’llah and Badi’u’llah, the two younger half-brothers, at the request of Bahá’u’lláh.

Land was also acquired in the villages of SamrihNughayb, and ‘Adasiyyih, situated near the Jordan.

In his book All That Remains: The Palestinian Villages Occupied and Depopulated by Israel in 1948, the historian Walid Khalidi details the history of many of these Palestinian villages and how they were depopulated. For example, he notes that in the 1880s most of the village land of al-Nuqayb was purchased by Bahá’u’lláh, with the villagers continuing to farm as tenant farmers. In the 1920s, this land was sold by Shoghi Effendi to the Jewish National Fund.

Bahá’í Villages in The Chosen Highway chronicles in some detail how ‘Abdu’l-Bahá used the grain he had grown in these villages to supply the British Army during World War I.

We learned that when the British marched into Haifa there was some difficulty about the commissariat. The officer in command went to consult the Master.

“I have corn,” was the reply.

“But for the army?” said the astonished soldier.

“I have corn for the British Army,” said ‘Abdu’l-Bahá.

He truly walked the Mystic way with practical feet. [footnote: Lady Blomfield often recounted how the corn pits proved a safe hiding-place for the corn, during the occupation of the Turkish army. -Ed.]

According to Harry Charles Luke, an official in the British Colonial Office who served as assistant Governor of Jerusalem,

Sir ‘Abbas Effendi ‘Abdu’l Baha had travelled extensively in Europe and America to expound his doctrines, and on the 4th December, 1919, was created by King George V a K.B.E. for valuable services rendered to the British Government in the early days of the Occupation.

On April 27, 1920, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá was ceremonially knighted, an event which was prominently reported in the Bahá’í periodical Star of the West.

THE following beautiful description of this event was written by Dr. Zia M. Bagdadi who was at that time in Haifa: “Among the kings and governments of the world who have become convinced that Abdul Bahá was the well-wisher and the lover of mankind are King George and his government. The King sent a medal to Abdul Bahá with the title, “Sir”, thus making him a member of his household. On the 27th of April, 1920, the Governor and high officials of Haifa, Palestine presented in a beautiful garden a most wonderful celebration for the knighting of Abdul Baha. Bahai pilgrims from Persia, America and all parts of the world were present. Mohammedan, Christian, Jewish leaders, clergymen, notables and local officials from Haifa, Acca and other towns attended. A tent was pitched in the center of the garden. English troops stood on both sides, from the gate of the garden to the center where Abdul Bahá was seated. The military music added wonderful melody to the rustling leaves of the beautiful trees. The breezes of the spring on that sunny afternoon imparted a remarkable vigor to the physical body just as the presence of Abdul Baha strengthened the souls. The Governor stood behind Abdul Bahá and, after a short speech, interpreted by Mr. Wadie Bistani, presented the medal. Then Abdul Baha, rising from his seat, gave a brief talk and a prayer for the British government.

On February 23, 1914, at the eve of World War I, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá had hosted Baron Edmond James de Rothschild, a member of the Rothschild banking family who was a leading advocate and financier of the Zionist movement, during one of his early trips to Palestine.

On September 8, 1919, subsequent to the British occupation of Palestine, at a time when tens of thousands of Jewish settlers were arriving under the auspices of the Palestine Jewish Colonization Association, an article in the “Star of the West” quoted ‘Abdu’l-Bahá praising the Zionist movement, proclaiming that “There is too much talk today of what the Zionists are going to do here. There is no need of it. Let them come and do more and say less” and that “A Jewish government might come later.”

At the time of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá ‘s death, Shoghi Effendi was matriculated at Balliol College. In a letter to Marzieh Gail, Shoghi Effendi outlined his educational ambitions at Balliol College, specifically to study with eminent professors and Orientalists, noting alumni who were all Imperialists.

After ‘Abdu’l-Bahá ‘s death, Shoghi Effendi would continue to have close relations with the leading political administrators and prominent Zionist leaders. For example, on January 24, 1922, Shoghi Effendi received a letter from Herbert Samuel, the British High Commissioner for Palestine. The receipt of the letter is mentioned in Amatu’l-Bahá Rúhíyyih Khánum‘s The Priceless Pearl. As High Commissioner, Herbert Samuel was the first Jew to govern the historic land of Israel in 2,000 years, and his appointment was regarded by the Muslim-Christian Associations as the “first step in formation of Zionist national home in the midst of Arab people.” Herbert Samuel welcomed the arrival of Jewish settlers under the auspices of the Palestine Jewish Colonization Association and recognised Hebrew as one of the three official languages of the Mandate territory.

While Shoghi Effendi was thus occupied and was gathering his powers and beginning to write letters such as these to the Bahá’ís in different countries, he received the following letter from the High Commissioner for Palestine, Sir Herbert Samuel, dated 24 January 1922:

Dear Mr. Rabbani,

I have to acknowledge receipt of your letter of Jan. 16., and to thank you for the kind expression it contains. It would be unfortunate if the ever to be lamented death of Sir ‘Abdu’l-Bahá were to interfere with the completion of your Oxford career, and I hope that may not be the case. I am much interested to learn of the measures that have been taken to provide for the stable organization of the Bahá’í Movement. Should you be at any time in Jerusalem in would be a pleasure to me to see you here.

Yours sincerely,

Herbert Samuel

New Website – Bahai Texts

I recently came across a new web site – http://bahaitexts.blogspot.com/

I am putting the link here because I found it quite interesting. This web site, rather, this blog put up quick posts to highlight the contradictions in the texts and behaviour of the Bahais, their Faith and more importantly, their leadership.

I appeal to all Bahais in the name of their principle of “Independent Investigation of Truth” that they should set aside their prejudices and read this web site. Please respond maturely and with an open mind.

 

Yemini Bahai accused of spying for Israel

It is said history repeats but in Baha’i faith it repeats too often for the more or less same purpose. A short time ago we found that the Baha’i administration asking the NSA of different countries to propagate the matter of fake Ayatollah Mr. Tehrani risking his life in Iran now a similar type of incidence has emerged in Yemen where the UHJ is trying to risk the life of Mr. Bin Hydara by asking hostile countries like Netherland and United Kingdom to appeal to Yemeni government for release Mr. Hydara.

Recently UHJ message has asked Baha’is of every country to contact the political leaders of their countries to let them put pressure on Yemeni Govt. to release Mr. Hydara who was caught spying for Israel. Spreading a false religion with headquarters in Israel Impersonated his name falsified many official papers, gave false statements and changed his personal documents and used them to buy land and establish business ventures for the purpose of bringing in a large number of Baha’is to Yemen, the penal prosecution added

The Baha’is have chosen such a time to launch an attack when Yemen is facing political upheaval and severe challenges. This also is a pointer that Baha’is are behind this political disturbance. Read more of this post

Beware! How Bahais are trying to capture the Middle East..

The Bahais are conducting children moral classes across the Arab countries, believing that improving morality of the society is their patented right.

Bahais should know that in all Arab countries there is a law which include: a ban on children being involved in religious organisations; a ban on “aggressive action aimed at proselytism”; a ban on the distribution of religious literature, print, and audio-video religious materials; and defacto compulsory re-registration of all registered religious organisations

The law also stresses that “attracting children into religious organizations is not allowed, and insistent actions directed at turning believers of one faith to another (proselytism) are banned”. It adds that “the distribution of literature, printed, audio and video materials of a religious character in public places (on streets and roads), and going round flats, children’s institutions, schools and higher educational establishments is banned”. It specifies that the law “determines [official] control on the activity of religious organizations”.

The Bahais by their deceptive ways are trying to break these laws and are trying to enforce Bahaism a foreign based espionage network, and gain some converts for themselves as their future manpower. Read more of this post

Why I Left The Bahai Faith

I was a Baha’i for about thirty years prior to the year 2000. We were led to believe that “entry by troops” and the “lesser peace” would happen by the year 2000, meaning that there would be a political peace in the world, and many, many thousands of people would be lining up to join the Baha’i religion…. and in fact, we were encouraged to donate to the building of the Baha’i World Center buildings in Haifa, Israel, because the buildings would be needed to handle the “entry by troops” that was about to happen.

Well, the year 2000 rolled around without any sign of mass conversions, and I finally realized that the people of the world weren’t likely to ever convert to Baha’i ‘en masse’ because it is a repressive, guilt-tripping religion with many laws most people are not interested in signing up to follow. I weaned myself off the Baha’i belief system. It took over ten years to recover from the brainwashing I’d been through.

The Baha’i religion is very paranoid and fearful about their reputation because they want people to join the religion. Unfortunately for them, the internet was invented and knowledge of their imperfection has spread. They even have a “protection” arm of the religion with people appointed to go to communities to warn them about outsiders (mainly former Baha’is) who are dangerous to the religion. Baha’is were encouraged to avoid reading anything they wrote and instructed to entirely shun them. This is only one of many aspects of “information control” – a well-known sign of cult mind control, per many websites and books that expose cult methodology.

The list of principles of the Baha’i religion is a carefully crafted marketing plan to make the religion appeal to people in western countries such as the USA and Europe. Not everything they say is realistic, good, or in line even with the statements of their founders. For example, they have the principle of the equality of men and women but have different inheritance laws for each and don’t allow women on the House of Justice (governing body) … and they say they have a principle of the unity of religions but that doesn’t mean that they respect people of all religions so much as it means that people of all religions can join Baha’i, give up their own religion, and then be united as a Baha’i community.

Baha’is want to say they are “the most wide-spread religion” so they force members in the USA (not sure about other countries) to have a “community” in each and every locality even if it is only two people… for example, say there are 11 people living in a city and 9 people living just outside the city limits. The 9 people living outside the city limits have to form their own “community” and must hold their “19 Day Feast” meetings separately from the 11 people living within the city limits. This is utterly ridiculous, but this way the national Baha’i center can count that as 2 communities or localities where Baha’is reside, rather than just one.

I could go on all day… writing about stupid things about the Baha’i religion. I’m so glad I made that mental break from the religion 18 years ago!

Babis, Baha’is and the British Deep State

In the early 19th century, the strategic location of the Middle East, sitting directly between the British Empire and her colony India, made the deep state of the British Empire focus their attention on the Middle East. Securing and obtaining the control of the routes to her colony with the hopes of establishing new colonial areas in the process, became a veritable obsession for it.

However, it wasn’t only Ottoman Empire that became a target in the process due to her key territories like Egypt, Suez, Palestine, Iraq and Basra. Iran also had a very highly strategic position in the region.

As a part of its plan to secure the control of the region, British government at the time put into action what the historians now call the ‘the Great Game’ between 1830-1895 against the Russian Empire, which it considered as one of its biggest rivals to her colonial order in India.

The game was based on the idea of turning the Ottoman Empire, Iran and the Emirate of Bukhara into buffer states to stop the southward advance of Russia. This way, it had hoped, it could stop Russia from having land access to India and preventing it from gaining ports in the Persian Gulf or Indian Ocean, which could pose a treat to the sea trade routes of the British.

During the process of great game, the British deep state surrounded Iran from the south and made it a half-colony, all the while robbing its natural resources and securing concessions in all industries.

In the meantime, in a bid to weaken the country, it used twisted movements like Babism, and Bahaism, which were created by the British deep state in the first place, to fuel sectarian clashes, for assassinations, riots, terror and unrest. The most prominent spies of the British deep state would be chosen amongst these perverted sects. Maneckji Limji Hataria, the emissary of the British India administration in Iran, led the mentioned project of creating unrest. [i]

The famine resulted in the death of some three million people between 1870-1871, wiping off almost one third of the country’s entire population. Ibrahim Kızılbas Zencani maintains that the England of the time deliberately caused the famine by gathering the food on the market and transferring it to India:

“Forget about donkeys and horses; people begun to eat dogs and cats in the cities. In some places, people would start eating human flesh… There were countless bodies strewn on the streets eaten by dogs. On the roads between villages, bodies of women, children, elderly and young people that had starved to death, were lined up…’

The discovery of oil in Iran in 1908 became the key factor in the 20th century Iran policy of the British deep state, which was marked by military campaigns, social-economic projects, political interventions and political coups.

In 1913, the British government secured a contract that practically made the entirety of Iranian oil British property. Only six years later, it imposed an agreement, which gave it control of the Iranian army and treasury.

Although Iran had declared its neutrality during WWI, the British invaded southern Iran. Capturing the region up to Kazvin, and gaining control of areas under the rule of the Qajar Dynasty, they became the sole power in the country and once again employed the method of causing famine to weaken it, all the while blocking the aid efforts of countries like the Ottoman Empire and the USA.

After two years of famine, the Iranian population, which was 20 million in 1917, dropped to 11 million in 1920. British journalist Donohoe wrote about the painful scenes during those years in his book “With the Persian Expedition”:

“There are countless humans that fell on the ground on the side of the street… they are dead… they are rotten… between their dried fingers, pieces of grass stick out… they tried to beat their starvation with grass… their eyes have sunken back, they are only skin and bones… they don’t really look like humans…They crawl on all fours on the side of the street…’

As the disaster was unfolding, the Bahai’s, which the British deep state was using as killing machine, unleashed a fresh wave of terror in 1916.

Although Iran declared its neutrality once again during WWII, the troops of Great Britain didn’t refrain from invading a large part of Iran and left in its wake a country struggling with poverty and starvation.

Even though the country was in the grips of famine and poverty, it was actually home to one of the world’s largest oil reserves. The reason behind this surprising dilemma was the British Anglo-Persian Oil Company (AIOC), as it had been controlling the country’s oil since the beginning of the century. Known as BP today, AIOC managed to increase its annual profit in 1950 to 200 million pounds, while Iran was making only 16 million pounds in profits.

Since 1908, Britain had been considering Iranian oil its own property and was fiercely protective of it. It had been using the country’s oil to meet its energy needs for over half a century, while the Iranian people were struggling with hunger and death.

Mohammad Mosaddegh, who was elected as Prime Minister with massive popular support in May 1951, started the National Iranian Oil Company and transferred the entire oil industry, which was under British control, to its Iranian counterpart. The British immediately responded with a series of economic and political sanctions against Mosaddegh for landing a massive blow to their biggest source of income. Mohammad Reza Shah also began to pressure the Mosaddegh government. However, when these efforts failed, a military coup was planned to overthrow Mosaddegh.

Upon the request of the British, US President Eisenhower instructed the CIA to organize a coup. After having organized many anti-government rallies throughout the summer of 1953 by means of the month-long ‘Operation Ajax’, the CIA carried out the coup with General Fazlollah Zahedi as the coup’s leader.

The great game that the British deep state started in early 1800 continues even today for Iran, Turkey, the Middle East not to mention the Islamic geography in general. The method is invariably the same: Inciting conflicts by means of sectarian, ethnical, racial differences so that in the end Muslims begin fighting each other. The only thing that changes are the names and faces; in the past, the Bahais were used. Today, it is MI6 Shias, MI6 Sunnis and Salafists.

However, today the British deep state is completely exposed. Soon, Muslims will put and end to their separation and disagreements and join their forces around the unifying spirit of the Qur’an. When this happens, the great game of the British deep state will come to a definitive end and not only the Middle East but the entire world – including the British people – will then find peace and security.

How do you say that Baha’ism was a plot of the Britain?

Two British rite Masons are behind the Masonic support for the creation of Bahaism from the mid Baghdad period: Manekji Limji Hataria and Mirza Malkom Khan.

 They made contact with Baha’u’llah in Baghdad during the mid-1850s and met with him personally. Only a few short years afterwards Baha’u’llah openly made his claim and relegated Subh-i-Azal to the margins and had all the prominent dissenters murdered. Subh-i-Azal was not willing to play any games with Masons and British agents such as Manekji and Malkom Khan, so the British rite Masons split up Babism and supported Mirza Husayn Ali Nuri Baha’u’llah to make up his own religion which they have supported ever since. The association of Manekji and Malkom Khan with Baha’u’llah is openly admitted by Baha’i sources.

The Covenant of the Baha’i Faith is dead, may it be buried forever!

Shoghi Effendi is known to Baha’is around the world as the Guardian of their Faith. But with a Guardian like him, the Baha’i Faith never needed enemies to destroy it!

Consider that in 1957, he:

•  Died at age 60,
•  Died suddenly of Asiatic Flu,
•  Died in London, not the Baha’i World Center,
•  Died in the middle of the Ten Year World Crusade (1953-1963),
•  Left no will and testament,
•  Had appointed no successor, and
•  Had expelled from the Baha’i Community, often for trivial reasons, EVERY ONE OF HIS BROTHERS, SISTERS, AND MALE AND FEMALE COUSINS! None of them were spared his holy wrath.

And every single issue cited above was either a discrediting or disobedience of some Baha’i scripture or is something that was totally unnecessary and made the obedience to Baha’i scripture impossible.

Also, if Abdu’l-Baha really believed in the equality of men and women, he would not have appointed his 21 year old grandSON his immediate successor, but would have instead appointed his eldest DAUGHTER. But she, even as the mother of Shoghi Effendi, is merely a footnote in Baha’i history. So Abdu’l-Baha was himself a hypocrite! Did you know that in the early years of his Guardianship, Shoghi Effendi tended to take long vacations in the Swiss Alps to get away from his duties and his relatives had to beg him to return? As long as the Greatest Holy Leaf, Abdu’l-Baha’s sister, was still alive, she could keep him in check, but after she died, he became a tyrant to his relatives, treating them like mere servants and punishing them whenever they dared to question his orders and demands. This is what happens when you give a man so much power that he thinks he is like God! Shoghi Effendi was a megalomanic that official Baha’i propaganda has tried to whitewash with false narratives decades after the fact, but the truth speaks for itself and cannot be excused.

This is a direct quote from the Will and Testament of Abdu’l-Baha:

The sacred and youthful branch, the Guardian of the Cause of God, as well as the Universal House of Justice, to be universally elected and established, are both under the care and protection of the Abhá Beauty, under the shelter and unerring guidance of the Exalted One (may my life be offered up for them both).

Read again the above the circumstances of the Guardian’s death. I guess the issue of “care and protection” for him was indeed a lie!

The Covenant of the Baha’i Faith is dead, may it be buried forever!

Bahaullah’s ‘divine revelation’ exposed!

by Qurrat361

It’s amazing how Baha’u’llah manages to say so little in so many words. It reminds me of L. Ron Hubbard. People who proclaim themselves “prophets” generally love to hear themselves talk, and so they do it endlessly and get very good at it.

What these people often present in their religions are very common sense ideas, which can be found outside of their religion. They draw people in by surrounding these ideas in walls of mystical language and making them much more complicated than they already are.

L. Ron Hubbard was infamous for doing this, as any ex-Scientologist would tell you. At its core, Scientology is a lot of common sense ideas—that talking to another person about your problems can help you solve them and stuff like that—but of course Hubbard had to make things weird like religious leaders love to do, and so he somehow connected this all to ancient aliens who are the source of all of your problems.

In the same way, Baha’u’llah and the rest of the Baha’i Central Figures liked to pretend that their theological ideas and especially their social ideas were anything unique to them, and so they wrote pages upon pages explaining these very simple ideas.

World peace isn’t something new or unique to the Baha’i Faith, neither is gender equality, etc. The Unity of God certainly isn’t a new idea, neither is the concept of theophany, which had been conceived of in polytheistic religion long before the Bab or Baha’u’llah, and in an Islamic context they were spoken of by Ibn Arabi and Shaykh Ahmad, who the Bab and Baha’u’llah were no doubt familiar with.

The Bab had a deep interest in Shaykh Ahmad and his successor Sayyid Kazim and their ideas, and he attended Sayyid Kazim’s lectures. Baha’u’llah is known to have associated with Sufi mystics when he was in Kurdistan, so it’s easy to see where the two got a lot of their ideas from. For example, the metaphor of wine in the Aqdas and other Baha’i writings is taken straight from Sufi poetry.

The Bab draws from a wide variety of neo-Platonic, Gnostic, and Sufi sources which I can’t even begin to list. Baha’u’llah’s works, specifically his Seven Valleys and Four Valleys; Hidden Words; and Ode to the Dove are quite clearly inspired by and more or less summaries of ‘Attar’s Conference of the Bird’s; Mulla Sadra’s Four Journeys; Umar Ibn al-Farid’s Ode of the Way; as well as the hadith and Qur’an of course, and they are all very poor imitations at that. The Iqan, for instance, tries very hard to be Ibn Arabi’s Bezels of Wisdom, but it very much misses the mark.

In some places in the Bab’s and Baha’u’llah’s writing, it can be very obvious which verses of the Qur’an they are trying to imitate. Arabic speakers have attested to this and to very the awkward phrasing of the Aqdas.

Baha’u’llah jumps so quickly between so many different topics without even attempting to smoothly transition between them, introducing a subject at one point and then not elaborating on it until way later in the text, and he repeats himself so many times that the book reads like it’s written by some high school student desperately trying to reach a minimum word count.

But of course, when first read, and especially if the person reading it is from the West and/or isn’t familiar with the literature the Aqdas is trying to imitate, it seems like such a unique and wonderful book; however, when critically analyzed, the book loses its mystical air.

Indonesia delivers setback to Bahais…

Baha’is have deceived Indonesian government times and again. During the last ten years The Ministry of Religious Affairs, over and again informed the Baha’is not to teach people who already have their own religion and were informed about the implication of violating this established government rules (imprisonment). The Baha’is betrayed the trust of the Indonesian Government and kept their secret activities of preaching and conversion.

In 2010 two Baha’is – Mr. Syahroni and Mr. Iwan Purwanto, who are imprisoned in East Lampung, were caught conducting Baha’i Children classes for children less than 12 years of age. After a fair trial these Baha’is were sentenced for imprisonment.

Recently the Baha’is propagated that the Indonesian government has recognized them and given them minority status. This is sheer lies and nothing else. As per confirmed reports, the Home Ministry in Indonesia has turned down the appeal of Baha’is for recognition of the Faith in that country.

Despite solid campaigning by Baha’is to influence the government machinery, in particular Ministry of Religious affairs, the Home Ministry has taken a tough stand.

Baha’is are notorious for espionage and conversion through deception. Several countries have banned the Baha’i Faith and many refuse to give it an official status.

Baha’i Faith has nurtured in Israel, and till today receives tremendous support from that country. Interestingly, Baha’is are not allowed to propagate in Israel. It is with this background, the Baha’is are viewed with suspicion.

The latest development in Indonesia is seen as a major set-back by the Baha’is, who had plans for spreading their tentacle to other neighboring countries. This development would also affect the decision making in several other countries, where Baha’is have made similar representation.
