re: Iran and Religious Minorities (Vincent Littrell, US) (John Eipper, USA, 02/08/10 6:40 pm)

Vincent Littrell responds to Alain de Benoist's post of 8 February: I have as of yet failed to thank Alain for his thoughtful post in response to my question about Herder. I've been drafting a posting in response but can't as yet seem to get back to it. Regarding Alain's question about why Baha'is are persecuted when Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians are not, I have to say that John Eipper's response regarding perceptions of Baha'i apostasy is correct. However, Alain misses the mark in saying that Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians are not persecuted. Of course they are. As well as Orthodox Sunni Muslims, Ismailis, Sufi orders, or Shi'a mystical order, or Twelver Shi'a orthodoxy who don't tow the regime's theological line (until the recent passing of Ayatollah Montazeri, though some might argue his arrest was political, it can also be well argued that his religious interpretations, to include how the Baha'is should be treated, differed from the ruling supreme jurist's, thus also having something to do with his years of being under house arrest and being removed as Ayatollah Khomeini's successor). As I have expounded at length in this Forum on these subjects, I will suggest to Alain the three posts linked below. In them I think I address, probably at more length than he wants to read, the subject of his post: http://cgi.stanford.edu/group/wais/cgi-bin/?p=9019 http://cgi.stanford.edu/group/wais/cgi-bin/?p=2305 http://cgi.stanford.edu/group/wais/cgi-bin/?p=9001
