My paternal grandfather taught our family to respect Baha’is and to treat them with affection. Theirs is an extraordinary faith.
I wish I could say that I was taken by surprise by stories like this one, and that I was heretofore unaware of the sad, common tale of persecution contained therein. But the truth is that the persecution of the Baha’is by the Islamic regime in Iran is a long-running affair.
Too bad so many people have failed to take notice for so long.
