Bahai Fact

Bahaism and Israel

Appeal of Jewish background Bahais to the State of Israel.



Dear Sir,
We the Baha’is of the Jewish background plead you to please lift this restriction/ban from teaching this Most Divine, the Most Peace loving and the Newest religion to the citizens of Israel.

Dear Sir,
Let us make Local Spiritual Assembelies in all the different cities of Israel and a National Spiritual Assembely of the State of Israel. Let the Counsellors of the International teaching centre make yearly plans for the spread of Bahai Faith in Israel. Let the Israeli children attend Bahai moral classes , let the Bahai youth start intensive programme of Growth for the Israeli citizen, let these young pure souls sign the Bahai youth card.

Dear Sir,
Let us group the various local spiritual Assembelies in Israel into different clusters like A, B, C, D. Let us make plans to have more and more “A” clusters as we are trying in other countries. Dear Sir, by ‘A’ cluster we mean there are 1000 convert in a year and a cluster which can launch intensive programme of Growth (IPG) for the spread of Bahai Faith.

Dear Sir,
Let the Israeli citizen after accepting the Bahai Faith donate generously to the Bahai Fund and pay their Huququllah (The Right of God) . Dear sir, please do not deprive your citizens of this spiritual bounty, Because donation in the Bahai Faith is considered as a spiritual Bounty given only to the Bahais and we do not accept it from Non Bahais.

Dear Sir,
Let our Infalliable ‘House of Justice’ issue special Messages to the Bahais “How to Teach Jew Youths”.

Dear Sir,
By now we have nine Temples or the Houses of Worship in countries like Australia, India, Germany, Panama, Samoa, Etc. We have purchased lands in more than 120 countries for building our future House of Worship. Dear Sir, please give us permission to purchase a land for constructing the House of Worship in Israel also.

Dear Sir,
We do not take part in politics, it is prohibited to a Baha’i. Moreover we never go against the Law of any Government, we promise that we will abide by this Law.

Dear Sir,
Baha’u’llah is the Promised One of all religions: the return of Christ to the Christians, the Messiah to the Jews, Shah Bahram to the Zoroastrians. Al Qaem for the Muslims.

Dear Sir,
Whenever our Honorable members of ‘House of Justice’ visit different countries they make a covenant with the Bahais. The covenant is ‘they will pray in the Holy Shrines on our behalf and the Bahais should propagate the Bahai Faith on their behalf’. As staying in Israel as they are deprived of the bounty of teaching the Bahai Faith. Dear sir, We plead you to please lift this ban, let them get this bounty of teaching. After all, these nine members are the one that when God looked at the earth, the first nine member which he selected to serve his Faith were these Members of the House of Justice.

Dear Sir,
All the religions like Judaism, Chritanity, Islam Buddhism, Hindiusm are rusted and their followers are spiritually dead as they have failed to recognise Baha’u’llah, infact these religions are Kindergarden and Bahai Faith is a Graduate School.

Dear Sir,
Let the Israelis accept the Bahai Faith and make a spiritual progress in Abha Kingdom. Dear Sir please do not deprive your people of the progress of their soul in Abha Kingdom.

Dear Sir,
Christianity has become a spiritual desert, Islam has been taken over by hallucinating ayatollahs, likewise all other religions have been rusted as they have been taken over by superstitions. It is the Bahai Faith which has all its full Glory and Honour.

Dear Sir,
Bahai Faith has become the second most widespread religion on earth and it has the fastest conversion rate. It is the most comfortable religion but such a religion is not allowed to preach and propagate to the Israeli is just a matter of great concern to us.


The problems of the Citizen of the State of Israel


1-However, in keeping with a policy that has been strictly followed since the days of Bahá’u’lláh, We Bahá’ís do not teach the Faith in Israel. Likewise, the Faith is not taught to Israelis abroad if they intend to return to Israel. When Israelis ask about the Faith, their questions are answered, but this is done in a manner which provides factual information without stimulating further interest.”
(Ref: The Universal House of Justice, 1995 Jul 23, Teaching Israelis)

2-“Whenever an Israeli citizen living in the West, irrespective of his background and religious affiliation, declares his belief and interest in becoming a member of the Bahá’í community, he is informed that the Faith is not taught in Israel and that there is no Bahá’í community there apart from those who are associated with the Bahá’í World Center. He cannot be accepted into the Bahá’í community if he is planning to return to Israel to reside there.

3-“If he plans to continue to reside outside Israel, his enrollment can be accepted, but he will then be subject to the same restrictions about travel to Israel as any other Bahá’í, in that he could do so only with the express permission of the Universal House of Justice. In any event, the Universal House of Justice should be informed of any such declaration.
(Ref: Letter from the Universal House of Justice, dated October 20, 1994, to several National Spiritual Assemblies.”)

(Compilations, NSA USA – Developing Distinctive Baha’i Communities)

Co-operation between the State of Israel and Bahai Faith


1-Bahai Faith is officially recognized in State of Israel.

2-All their possessions and properties are being exempted from Government taxes and duties and even for their necessary imports the Baha’is enjoy exemption of custom duties.

3-The publication of Bahai news and information in Israeli news paper and their broadcast over the Israeli radio is permissible and moreover radio Israel sometimes congratulates the Baha’is on their festivals

4-Mrs. Ruhiya Rabbani in one newspaper where she had said “I prefer that the youngest religion i.e. Bahai Faith grows and expands in the most newly country in the world i.e. Israel. we belong to this place and have attachment to each other and in fact it must be said that the future of us and Israel is like the rings of one chain connected to each other.”

5-When a Baha’i from other country wants to visit State of Israel, the Israel security exempts the Baha’is from rigorous questioning, if he shows the letter from the UNIVERSAL HOUSE OF JUSTICE.

6-We acknowledge the periodical visits of Israeli Prime Ministers, Presidents and other high ranking officials at our World Centre. The Kind and the good words which they spoke for our Faith cannot be easily forgotten. The last which we heard was former Prime Minister Mr. Arien Sharon.

7-The Government officials in Israel have access to factual information about the Faith, its history and general principles. Books concerning the Faith are available in libraries throughout the State of Israel, and Israelis are welcome to visit the Shrines and the surrounding gardens.


The Support of State of Israel to Bahai Faith



(a) The Israeli president and his wife Mrs. Ben Zoy paid a scheduled visit to the holy sites of Mount Carmel, following the reception given in their honor at the home of His Holiness Abdul-Baha.”

(b) “The Israeli Government’s relations with His Holiness Vali Amrollah and the international Bahai delegation are friendly and sincere. It is a pleasure that successes have been achieved in recognition of the faith in the holy land.”

(c) 12th November 1952, Contract was signed with the Development Authority of the State of Israel whereby the Bahá’í Community secured some 40 Acres of land surrounding the sacred Shrine of Bahá’u’lláh.

(d) January 1954,(On the behalf of the Guardian, Shoghi Effendi) The President of the International Bahá’í Council (Charles Mason Remey who later on was declared a Covenant Breaker) and Secretary General (Leroy Ioas), asked permission to call on the President of the State of Israel to greet him officially.

(e) Many years ago, the following statement appeared in the official Bahai publication “We are very proud and pleased to announce to the Baha’is the expansion and development of relations between the Bahaism and the officials of the Israeli Government.”

(f) Dr. Lutfullah Hakim, a member of the Universal House of Justice in Israel, in a letter to the Bahai community, wrote:
“ These days the Israeli newspapers, whether in Hebrew, Arabic or English, publish detailed articles on the Bahai religion and His Holiness.”

(g) Amatul Baha Mrs. Roohieh Khanum in a press conference, said:
“ I prefer to have the youngest religion, Bahaism germinate in the newest country of the world, Israel. We belong to, and depend on this country, Israel. Indeed, I should say that ours and Israel’s future are interlinked like a chain.”

(h) The Bahai representatives had meetings with Ben Gorivan the then Prime Minister of Israel in which they expressed their gratitude and appreciation towards Israeli Government and also spoke about sincere feelings and affections of the Bahais for the progress and fate of the Israeli government.

(i) Our Beloved Guardian of the Bahai Faith Shoghi Effendi had a meeting with Master Benzavi of the ex-President of Israel, He told him “I hope that the world Bahai centre in Israel will in an ever- increasing manner be always effectual in progress and lofty position of the country and in the welfare of its citizens.”

(j) The official visit of the former president of Israel, Mr. Zalman Shahzar to the Bahai centre on 7th april 1964 and heartly exchanges of compliments between them to the sign of intense connection and cooperation between the Bahai’s and the Jews.

The Bahai Role in creation of Holy Land of Israel


At a time when the international community of the World were pleading to the United Nations to give official status to their government of Israel, Our Beloved Guardian Shoghi Effendi (grandson of Abbas Effendi), in a letter to the United Nations on behalf of the Palestinians, emphasized his sincere relationships with the Jews and supported their plans for establishment of Holy Land of Israel.

  5. The political situation in Israel is a sensitive one. This may be why the Universal House of Justice does not allow Baha’is to teach the faith in Israel.
    However, I believe that one day, when the time is right, this will happen and all people in the Holy Land will be given the bounty of learning about the healing message of Baha’u’llah.
    Peace will come to Israel one day. Of this I am sure!
    Let us all pray and work for this and know that God will help us. May God bless the Holy Land!!!

    • What a ludicrously false statement…Is lying without blinking a revealed verse of your Baha’i faith too..” The political situation in Israel is a sensitive one” What is that supposed to mean. Political situation is sensitive many countries but that didn’t stop you proselytizing the locals in those countries. When God Almighty Wills to spread the Message of HIS revealed religion, does HE consider the sensitive political situation of any country rather the opposite is true. You say it is the Universal religion yet hypocritically your God has found it convenient to exclude Israel..It’s like your god manifest has been refused visa to conduct business in Israel but to lay low and set up headquarters in the form of UHJ..Isn’t that suspect? ALMIGHTY GOD does not compromise when it comes to guiding his creations out of darkness.
      Dear woman are you a representative of God on earth or are you a spin doctor on a payroll. Couldn’t your god manifest clarify to the world why he prohibited preaching to Israelis in Israel instead of you guessing wildly? Why now is the right time for the Israelis since you claim Baha’ism is a universal religion for all people.? Is Israel on a different planet with different creatures?
      Dear woman please do some deep research and see what you come up with considering the crisis facing your religion instead of going to battle with a blunt sword. Neither you nor your priests have answers to these question. I Want to ask you one last Question to sleep on tonight… Is your god in the manifesto of bahaullah fallible or infallible? If he is infallible why is there the need for mortals in the Uhj with infallible credentials to take care of the religion.Couldn’t your god setup mechanism to protect the infallibility of his holy book and not be tampered with to suit the current situation since he said no new prophet or revelations would come for the next 1000 years. Within a span of 100 years your most holy has evolved dramatically…compare the original text to the current one…I warn you it is a bitter pill to swallow but swallow you must eventually…

  6. Earlier many Jews accepted Bahai Religion? I wonder why now they are not accepting?

  7. This is CLEARLY a veiled attempt by the enemies of the Bahai Faith to create confusion and mislead .
    The whole premise behind this site, it’s images, content, language , style , despite its effort to sound sympathetic toward Bahais is blatantly malicious with the intention of somehow implicating the Bahai Faith as part of some hidden conspiracy .
    The Islamic republic of Iran and it’s overactive agents are becoming more desperate as time passes.
    The Islamic republic of Iran ..has already shown it’s true face to the world and can not be trusted.
    The Iranian people , the Muslim world as well as the rest of the globe can not be fooled by such devious attempts by an inhuman ungodly regime and Its not so intelligent subversive disinformation service. Hossain

    • Well it is the Baha’is who are making mischief in the land. That could be just one reason why Baha’is are not well come in Iran or Israel..Happily Israel is given a get out of jail card at the same time hypocritically crying wolf when Iran monitors your mischief making. Your Uhj conveniently headquartered in Israhell specifically prohibited preaching in Israel as one woman suggested due to the sensitive political situation in Israel.

      With due fairness couldn’t the same prohibition from proselytizing extended to Iran due to the extremely sensitive political situation in Iran. I have to conclude after doing some research Iran is on the Baha’is blacklist for scattering the initial babi adventure in them days while Israeli is rewarded with outright prohibition from proselytizing in exchange for Uhj headquarters and good recommendation in Israeli media. So much for a peaceful universal religion with a dark history of Murders, drownings.excommunicating members who dared asked valid questions about bahaullah the bab and Abdul baha.. Strangely Baha’i history reveals how glory god himself unable to protect himself was poisoned by his half brother as the spin doctors put it when it was glory god who tried to poison his half brother because the incident took place in glory god’s house..By the way can God Almighty have a brother? Just like a law in thermodynamics, Anyone who makes mischief will meet mischief maker down the road.

  8. I have been reading about the Bahai faith and not surprisingly find similarities to other faiths both in its tenets and origins. I am a strict monotheist and am curious whether there are icons, symbols or images that are part of or associated with the Bahai faith. I also have heard that the Bahai faith expects or promotes a universal language for all mankind. This is understandable considering that mankind at one time had a universal language, which The Creator confounded and promised to return to mankind in Zephaniah 3:9. Is there a particular language that the Bahai faith expects or favors to become the universal language?

    • Read the story behind “one world government ” New World order hogwash..look it up.

      Like the saying goes, ..You can fool SOME of the people ALL the time, You can fool ALL of the people SOME of the times…But you can’t fool ALL of the people ALL the time…..Ever potential mischief makers wants to fully rule the world one way or the other., but they all have one thing in common..They all fail miserably….Why? Because they forgot to include in their equation Who their Sole Creator was? And the purpose of their creation…lacking guidance they continue to grope in the dark

  10. An amazing disguise by someone who is so desperately pretend to be a baha’i or freind of the the Baha’i Faith. Obviously he is not at all familiar with the Faith as it is so clear to everyone who knows the Baha’i Faith language and use of words.
    False quotations also use without reference. Very clearly this is a Moslim trying to create ties between the Baha’i Faith and the Jew or Zionims.
    How desperate can people become?

    • What did the Baha’is hide their so called revealed most holy book for some hundred years before two British scholars took it upon themselves to find and translate the kitab I agdas…? strange…Now would that have anything to do with Iran influencing the two scholars on their endeavors would it?…..

      I challenge and dare any bahai living anywhere to ask why the book was hidden and to ask from a senior Baha’i official and see if you are not excommunicated and dismissed as a covenant breaker before you can complete your sentence to your question….

  11. I was a Bahai, now resigned from all form of religion..they are all one,the are all the same..comes from the same root. Anyone who really want to be enlighten with truth, should start reading the work of Jordan Maxwell and Michael Tsarion. Decoding the past lies the answer of all human suffering.

  12. the graphics
    the text fool no one; as if the same idiot who makes this stuff up for islamic republic “NEWS” and takes people for fools has pasted the same star of david on the Bahai UHJ building,
    before the Bahais were accused of zionist spies; now its almost any iranian citizen who is against Ahmadinejad and his gang.
    you have to give the islamic republic points for creativity…
    fortunately after the iranian elections, the people of iranian don’t believe a word..
    this blog is almost certainly a prodcut of the iranian cyber warfare against Bahais.
    No Bahai ever refers to his faith as an ism as in “Bahaism”

    Comment by Ariel | April 6, 2010 | Reply

    • I couldn’t help but laugh when you mentioned ” Iranian cyber warfare against Baha’is ” is Baha’ism a nation state? I seriously doubt you have any knowledge about cyber warfare…It is involves hacking into systems or hardware to cause damage to equipment of an enemy state which is often politically motivated.pasting Israeli flag on the Uhj building would hardly qualify for cyber warfare but more like an illustration to make a point..Here on this blog religion is discussed and don’t get carried away in your usual hyperventilation.Your ignorance plays a major role in your lack of understanding of the history of the Baha’i religion..In the future don’t just throw around terms out of context..
      Secondly what is your Uhj doing in Israel or how did it end up being headquartered in Israel? I am curious. Why not the U.S or any other western, Asian or African country. Is it the birthplace of Baha’ism or the bab,or bahaullah ? Please clarify. Just like makkah is the Qibla of the Muslims, Israel or Akka is the Baha’i Qibla? You do face in that direction whenever you pray, don’t you? Hint…before you answer don’t consult your Senior Baha’i official but rather do some independent research,otherwise you and I know you will be labeled a covenant breaker and kicked out of the faith so fast your head would spin..Good luck
