According to the Associated Press, the Fifth Summit of the perverse Baha’ism (sic) sect was convened in the City of Haifa in Israel.

In this summit, the nine-member governing body, called the Universal House of Justice, was elected for another five-year term. Of these nine individuals, who orchestrate the activities of the followers of this perverse sect, five are Americans, two are Iranians affiliated with the Zionist regime and the other two are from the countries of the United Kingdom and Scotland.

According to this report, at the end of the summit, forgiveness prayers were said for the souls of some of the followers of this sect, who had been executed in Iran due to their espionage activities for Israel.
