Residents of the Province of Yazd,


We affirm and convey to the Public Prosecutor of Yazd our full support for his having taken vigorous and revolutionary measures, particularly the execution of Israeli spies of the abominable sect of Baha’ism. It is hoped that with the confirmation of the Vali-e Asr [1] (May God Hasten His Blessed Return) and the leadership of the Supreme Leader Imam Khomeini, you will press forward your comprehensive revolutionary actions with all due speed and in conformity with the Islamic laws.
