The Banner of Islam Is Raised In the Land of Infidels

The impure Haziratu’l-Quds was purified

Two days ago, suddenly, the countenance of the Haziratu’l-Quds, which was covered in the dust of death, became lively. And this time, instead of being the abode of the impure and dirty Baha’is, it became the abode of Muslims and the working place of the courageous military staff; a portion of the military governorate was transferred there and ended the recent false and untrue rumours scattered by the perverse Baha’i sect, which was the misuse of the people’s wise behaviour and tactful policies of the law enforcement officers, especially General Bakhtiar.

The three-coloured national banner, which always stands next to the ensign of Mohammad—the Messenger of God—and is raised over the main entrance of the Haziratu’l-Quds, is a manifest reason for the Muslims’ hatred of this disgraced community. The Baha’is should know that their useless efforts will not affect their fate, and they have to repent, deprecate and forsake the cradle of spies that is the Haziratu’l-Quds.
