The Baha’i Point of Adoration [Qiblih] Became a Cultural Heritage [Site]!

It is therefore a strange act that many important and historical monuments of Muslims and Christians located in the occupied territories, such as Al-Aqsa Mosque, etc., have been repeatedly threatened by the fake military regime of Israel with the negligence of the international community, and exposed to destruction.

According to the Shia News Agency, a while ago, UNESCO registered the “Holy Shrine” in Bahji―the tomb of the Leader of the perverse Baha’i sect in the north of the occupied territories―as one of the world’s cultural heritage [sites]. This action, which was widely supported by the Zionist-affiliated media, is a strange action because many important and historical monuments of Muslims and Christians [are] located in the occupied territories, such as Al-Aqsa Mosque, etc., which, by the negligence of the international community, it has repeatedly been under threat of destruction by the fake and military regime of Israel, and Muslims are not allowed to rebuild it (as a 2,000-year-old historical site).

While the Zionist regime, by distorting the teachings of Judaism, is trying to justify its oppression of the burdened people of the world, especially the Palestinians, by attaching special importance to this place, they have turned it into a Baha’i Point of Adoration and the Baha'is are said to perform their religious rites directed toward this Centre.

It is worth mentioning that Baha’ism is a colonial religion whose laws are revised from time to time based on the needs of the West!! For example, a few years after the founding of Israel, it was discovered that the Baha’i Point of Adoration should be [in] that country.
