House Resolution on Imprisoned Bahais


I’ve posted before about the Bahais whom the Islamic Republic of Iran has charged with capital offenses and imprisoned. There is no basis for the charges. The Iranian government’s motivation appears, plain and simply, to be religious intolerance. There’s background here.

Well, today the House of Representatives voted 407-2 to condemn Tehran for its “state-sponsored persecution of its Bahá’í minority.”

The two dissenters: Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich.
