    Except most of my info came from intellectuals who go do speeches in Colleges in US and I took most of the info from their explanations of what has been going on. And these speeches were way before the event and were warnings to US that Russia would be forced to do what they are now doing. These guys (intellectuals) were trying to warn US out of their love of their country, they aren't Russian or Iranian.

    Are you aware that Baha'i'ullah prepared in his time for the house of justice to be a part of Baha'i faith but it it was not needed until after Shogi effendi died, since he had no children of his own to be the follower in line.
    So in 1963 the house of justice was ready to be the leading autority/guide for Baha'is around the world.
    So even the founder of Baha'i faith saw it as a right way

    Whether true or not, it doesn't matter. I'm dealing with the situation as is. Most Bahai faith people follow this house, and I have to see if their interpretations line up with @InvestigateTruth. If they do, then, 100%, Iran should not allow them as an official religion nor recognize them as such same way US wouldn't allow ISIS interpretation or Al-Qaeda interpretation as a valid way to interpret Islam in US Mosques.

    Should the world allow Shiite in to their countries? On basis of your hostility toward other people and faiths i say a clear NO

    If in US, a false Prophet comes teaching his followers to destroy US with nukes for example, you would not allow this. (not saying this is similar to Bahai faith)

    I'm brining an extreme example to show, "religion" is not enough to justify "jahr bel soo" "harmful public speech". Quran forbids the latter and yes emphasize religion is to be free and people to choose, but if people begin to interpret Quran to justify killing civilians of other religions like ISIS did, they should be stopped. Simply saying it's a valid interpretation and freedom of speech and religion won't do.

    Dude, US and it's allies already taken a stance that Shiites should not be allowed to teach or practice public their faith. They oppress already.

    We don't care for your approval.

    We will stop Saudi Arabia, Zionist, and unholy US trinity plans, it's as Nabi Mohammad (s) said to Salman Farsi (r), "By Allah, then let Iblis and his armies come".

    We brace for impact, and it's as God taunts "if you have a plan, then plan..." go ahead, do your best to put out God's light.

    We aren't gonna beg the oppressors for mercy nor expect good from Gog and Magog oligarchs nor any mercy from them or their mind controlled populations who blindly and heedlessly follow them.

    You guys are evil by nature "alas, they are the mischief makers, but they don't perceive".

    Russia on the other hand, are blessed Christians and ally to us, because they actually honor Jesus (a) and his teachings.

    So there were Baha'i in the administration of the Shah - who was Shiite himself, AFAIK - and therefore the Baha'i faith as a whole is opposed to Shiites?

    This makes no sense.

    I live in the US. I lost my faith that my government has accurate views regarding threats.

    I dislike the US hypocrisy of allowing Christian terrorists but not Muslim ones.

    I understand what you say. But you are just making an arbitrary conjecture. Forget about agreeing with the OP or not, you have not engaged with the argument. That's the problem. the argument maybe false, but if you don't engage with the argument and give reasons to disagree, you are just making an irrelevant heartfelt opinion. I can see you have a good heart, but your statements are irrelevant.

    Hope you try and understand.

    That’s fair and our hubris will be our undoing but that doesn’t mean Putin should be a puppeteer either.

    You just proved what I said. you are generalising a rebellion against the political leadership of a country, vindication, and turmoil to "Islam".

    Super ignorant.

    Maybe you should honestly study your own religion a little prior to preaching and proselytisation.
