Unity trumps divisiveness

Unity trumps divisiveness
by alborz

In the face of enormous social, economic, and foreign policy challenges, the  people of these United States have chosen a man that symbolizes Unity. His supporters represent the broadest coalition of people from every racial, ethnic, religious and socio-economic group.

Obama’s lineage has unified whites and blacks, Christians and Moslems, his message has embraced every disaffected group, and his idealism has garnered the attention of those entrenched in the old world order.

Just a this nation’s hopes rise, the people of the world will watch with a mixture of hope and skepticism.  America’s pronounced ideals, are now expressed domestically as world leaders and governments take stock of their standing against the long-time standard bearer of these ideals.

“The well-being of mankind, its peace and security, are unattainable unless and until its unity is firmly established.”

Prophecy for people of Iran...160 years Ago...

by faryarm on


As Iranians, we should be aware that, at the very core of Obama's inspiration are the very principles of Unity and Justice  that were first given to Iranians by Baha'u'llah over 160 years ago; Divine principles that Bahais to this day have valiantly stood for.


No doubt President elect Obama, is inspired  and in touch with the spirit of the age, one which has empowered him to project his ideas as he does. 


Baha’u’llah The founder of the Bahai Faith , addressing The Land Of Ta (Tehran, Iran) has promised in the most Prophetic terms, “one who will rule with justice, who will gather together the flock of God which the wolves have scattered.”

"Let nothing grieve theeO Land of Ta , for God hath chosen thee to be the source of the joy of all mankind. He shall, if it be His Will, bless thy throne with one who will rule with justice, who will gather together the flock of God which the wolves have scattered. 

Such a ruler will, with joy and gladness, turn his face towards, and extend his favours unto, the people of Baha. He indeed is accounted in the sight of God as a jewel among men. Upon him rest forever the glory of God, and the glory of all that dwell in the kingdom of His revelation. [Tihran.] 

Rejoice with great joy, for God hath made thee "the Dayspring of His light," inasmuch as within thee was born the Manifestation of His Glory. Be thou glad for this name that hath been conferred upon thee - a name through which the Day-star of grace hath shed its splendour, through which both earth and heaven have been illumined. 

Ere long will the state of affairs within thee be changed, and the reins of power fall into the hands of the people. 

Verily, thy Lord is the All-Knowing. His authority embraceth all things. Rest thou assured in the gracious favour of thy Lord. The eye of His loving- kindness shall everlastingly be directed towards thee

The day is approaching when thy agitation will have been transmuted into peace and quiet calm. Thus hath it been decreed in the wondrous Book."




Iranians are unified

by XerXes (not verified) on

For the Islamic Republic of Iran. Why do you think IR is the most powerful country in the region today?
The best thing that could happen for you is to hope for more freedom in the establishment of the Islamic Republic of Iran. travel to Iran and visit most of the towns and villages, most of the parts of the cities and see how unified the people are for their government and system, then come back and we'll talk.
You can't look at the country from your own eyes and those who live here in the US with you. Not even those who are living in the norther Tehran. Iran is much bigger than that.
We are reaching democracy in Iran and unlike Russia or China or any country in our region, we have no idea who our next president will be. You want to throw all this for a pro American, slave government that first comes to revenge for 5-10 years, then after the killings begins to fill the pockets of the newly developed class for 5 years or so, then fill the pockets of their masters...
What you talking about willis?


Khameni and his ilk have

by highhopes (not verified) on

Khameni and his ilk have stood defiantly in support of insidious corruption and xenophobia, religious and gender segregation (apartheid), a culture of brutal repression, violence, perversion, immorality, and denial of basic human and economic rights for thirty years.

These actions and the stark images of their consequences have spread across the world and should galvanize Iranians and the international community to a cry for an end to the IRI/Islamists apartheid. There should be a firestorms that should be lit in hearts of all of freedom and liberty seeking people of the world to help Iranians to face IRI assault on freedom, liberty and mainstream prosperity. Economic security for all and not just for the Khodis.

As a new call to arms was sounded by Obama two years ago, Iranians need to learn from Americans to take their country back.

IRI"s trampling of individual freedoms and blatant contempt for the rights (economics, social, human, religious) of the average Iranians are nothing short of what black Americans faced 60 years ago in the South antebellum.

There needs to be a shift of conciousness in Iran too.

Honesty, and love of country (instead of religion) in both word and deed can replace treachery and perversion of all that is decent in the Islamic Republic We need someone like Barack to lead and give Iranian the power back that was hijacked by right wing religious fundamentalist in 1978.

We need to wake up and come to an understanding of the injustices borne by IRI's deeds and the legacy of suffering and destruction that it has and will left behind as did Martin Luther King and his movement.

Today, Barack Obama is hope for a better tomorrow for all Americans. He stands on the shoulders of all those people who have incessantly prayed for a day when "justice will run down like waters and righteousness as a mighty stream" (Amos 5:24).

Perhaps one day, Iranians will have the opportunity to have a leader like Barack Obama.


We need an Iranian Barack

by Iranians can too! (not verified) on

We need an Iranian Barack Obama. It's time for all Iranians of ideological stripes to unite and put their country first instead of their ideologies.

We could learn so much from this US election to build a movement, a cause, to take our country back from the jaws of extremist IRI apartheid.
