Meaningful Defence of Each Other By the United Nations and the Baha’is!
Adyannet – The Baha’i sect finds its existence and dynamism under the umbrella of the support of foreign institutions and governments―especially, in the present time, the United States and Israel. From its inception to the present, it has supported the policies of these governments, from the conquest of Vietnam by the United States, to helping France in maintaining its colonies, etc.
One of the supporting institutions of the Baha’i sect, which, from its inception, has been committed, dependent, biased and involved in the interests of the superpowers, is the United Nations. From the inception of the United Nations (in 1945) until now, the policies of this sect have been to defend the nature and function of the [UN] and in return, the [UN] has provided unwavering support for Baha’ism.
To this end, one of the programmes of the Baha’i Faith network (Aein-e Baha’i), introduces the nature of the United Nations in accordance with the teachings of Baha’ism. It states, “Years before the founding of the United Nations, the Baha’i Faith, in its proposed system and structure for governing the world, envisioned powerful organizations and institutions, one of which was the International Court of Justice... Although the Baha’is do not consider the formation of the League of Nations, the United Nations, and the affiliated organizations to be sufficient, they do consider them to be in pursuit of the peaceful ideals of the Baha’i Faith.” Supporting such an organization, however, is not compatible with the mission of religions, because religions are in charge of the affairs of nations and the defence of the oppressed; unfortunately, the Baha’i sect identifies this pro-Baha’i organization as a means of fulfilling the proposed peace of the Baha’i cause.
