[The excerpt below is from the section of the article that pertains to the Baha’i Faith]
[Newspaper:] Kayhan-e Havaei
[Date:] Wednesday, 4 Shahrivar 1371 - 26 August 1992
[Issue No.:] 995
The Deutsche Zeitung newspaper, in the same issue that published the news of the ruffians’ attack on Iran’s foreign minister, has published on another page an extensive comparison of the Baha’is and has printed a large picture of the Baha’i mosque [sic] in Haifa, Israel, which is considered to be the main centre of the Baha’is. The writer of this Zionist newspaper, published in Munich, concludes from this comparison that the Baha’i religion is one of the peaceful religions of the world, and after a strong attack on the Islamic Republic, writes that there are four hundred thousand Baha’is living in Iran, who, since the Islamic revolution, have all been subjected to torture, and since 1979, hundreds of Baha’is, due to their religious belief, are being kept in the prisons of Iran! Around two hundred Baha’is have so far been executed!!
It is interesting that the Zionist writer has obtained his correct news (!) of the torture of the Iranian Baha’is, testified by his own writing, from the Intelligence Service of America (CIA) and the Mossad of Israel!
