This Egypt Tourism Ad Still Rings True After Arab Spring

Baha'i Rights video from 2007:

In 2009, the Bahá'í religion was recognized in Egypt as a "dash" on a identity card. Now that the Muslim Brotherhood are in power....

Much has changed in Egypt, but much has stayed the same. On November 30th Egyptian education minister Ibramim Ghanem gave an interview to the Egyptian newspaper al-Sabah. Amidst talks of Egypt’s changing education policy, one question affirmed the long standing legacy of marginalized minority religions such as the Baha’i faith across Egyptian society[...]

Ibramim Ghanem: "State law in accordance with government procedures only recognizes three religions, and the Baha’i faith is not among them. Thus their children do not have the right to register in government schools."

I should note most Islamic countries consider Bahá'í Faith apostasy from Islam. Pres Morsi is trying to force them to list Muslim on ID cards, which they won't do. Listing as Christian or Jewish sure as hell won't stop the persecution either.

*Hey look at the beautiful Bahá’í Gardens in Israel. Baha’i's Universal House of Justice is also in Israel

Apartheid Israel? Really bitches? Take your From the river to the sea Palestine will be free and shove it up your collective asses.

Sorry, *ADD or something ;-)
