Speak Now Or Forever Hold Your Peace....

The Baha'i World News Service has just posted that the 7 leaders in the Baha'i community in Iran - who have been wrongly accused, imprisoned and tried for over 2 years - were each sentenced to 20 years in prison today.

Bani Dugal, the principal representative of the Baha'i International Community to the United Nations states that "We understand that they have been informed of this sentence and that their lawyers are in the process of launching an appeal".

CNN provided the following information yesterday, "Iranian authorities have detained more than 45 Baha'is in recent months, and as many as 60 Baha'is are imprisoned in Iran on the basis of their religio[us] beliefs, the U.S. State Department has said."

Earnestly and sincerely I pray that justice comes to envelop the earth....

"No radiance can compare with that of justice. The organization of the world and the tranquility of mankind depend upon it." - Baha'u'llah
