Nourizad Showed His [True] Nature / Connection With Baha’ism!
Yesterday, Nourizad visited a small Baha’i family; as usual, he made comments appropriate to his own personality. After the defeat of the filthy Velvet Revolution, this failed seditionist has suffered from a kind of madness, and is praising the religion that was created by the Jews for the destruction of Shiism.

You compare yourself to the Catholic leader of the world, who kissed the foot of a Muslim girl, although your work bears no resemblance to that of a pope, because he respects other divine religions. If you would follow a person who follows a divine religion, you would be like him, but you are ranked lower than your own dignity by respecting a sect that intends to destroy one of the divine religions, and this is a sign of your weakness in understanding such simple matters.

Do you expect us to remain silent with the people who have turned to the destruction of the Shiite belief among the youth? Baha’is who do not engage in anti-government and anti-religious activities can live freely in the country. If you are thinking about the oppressed, look for Muslims who are banned from teaching in France for wearing the hijab, even though Muslims are among the divine religions and Baha’is are an anti-Shiite sect...
