Mocking!

Realism ...!

They closed down the Baha’i Assembly [Centre] – Each person has interpreted it according to his own understanding, but from a realistic point of view, it was a good thing [decision], because if one could not even adhere to the religion, not even a stone can hold another stone [there would be chaos].

It seems that the “followers of Akka” have complained to the United Nations to obtain the minorities’ rights; that is, like the pure-natured and Iran-loving Zoroastrians or Armenians and Jews, who have a seat in the parliament and start [publishing their own] newspaper.

That day would be great chaos.

They did well by suffocating this dirty offspring before birth.
