Will Egypt's Baha'i Face Same Persecution as in Iran?

I have often referred to the plight of the Baha'i faith in Iran, who are actively persecuted by the Islamist regime. I have also written about the plight of the Coptic Christians in Egypt. This latest report from Bilkyamasr suggests that the small Baha'i community in Egypt is coming under increasing threat.

When does the religious persecution stop? In Egypt, first it is the Coptic Christians-now the Baha'i. How does one get the world to sit up and take notice of what is happening to religious minorities in the Middle East?

"What about the Jews?", you ask. They were driven out around 1948 when the state of Israel was born. Remember?

There is only one place in the Middle East where the Baha'i are not persecuted, where the World Headquarters of the Baha'i faith is. That nation is Israel. That holy city for the Baha'i is Haifa.

Egypt like all Muslim nations will try to destroy the Baha'i. As long as Israel is a nation the Baha'i are free to worship in peace.
