Moroccan Baha’is Demand the Release of Israeli Baha’i Spy
A small number of the perverse Baha’i sect in Morocco issued a statement calling for the release of a Baha’i spy serving the Zionist regime.
According to Fars News Agency’s International Group, while Hamed Kamal Bin Haydara[i], a Yemeni Baha’i in Morocco, is being held indefinitely on charges of spying for Israel and is facing the death penalty, Baha’is in Morocco are demanding his release.
According to the Alyaoum24 news website in Morocco, the Baha’is of this country have issued a statement claiming that the Baha’is have no connection with Israel and that only the grave of their leader is located in the City of Akka in occupied Palestine.
Moroccan security forces arrested the man in December 2013 on charges of spying for Israel.
The tomb of Baha’u’llah (the alleged prophet of the Baha’is) is located in the City of Akka in the occupied Palestinian territories, and Israel is the host and main supporter of the perverse Baha’i sect.
It has been claimed that Moroccan Baha’is have been entering the country since 1953, and the only official report on their number is the U.S. State Department’s 2004 report, which puts their number between 350 and 400.
