Among the measures which the Bahá'í community advocates as contributions to world unity are a federation of nations, an international auxiliary language, the coordination of the world's economy, a universal system of education, a code of human rights for all peoples, an integrated mechanism for global communication, and a universal system of currency, weights and measures.
Beginning in September 1867, Bahá'u'lláh wrote a series of letters to the world leaders of His time, addressing, among others, Emperor Napoleon III, Queen Victoria, Kaiser Wilhelm I, Tsar Alexander II of Russia, Emperor Franz Joseph, Pope Pius IX, Sultan Abdul-Aziz, and the Persian ruler, Nasiri'd-Din Shah.
In these letters, Bahá'u'lláh openly proclaimed His station. He spoke of the dawn of a new age. But first, He warned, there would be catastrophic upheavals in the world's political and social order. To smooth humanity's transition, He urged the world's leaders to pursue justice. He called for general efforts at disarmament and urged the world's rulers to band together into some form of commonwealth of nations. Only by acting collectively against war, He said, could a lasting peace be established.

Why put sanctions on iran? If they are a threat, destroy them. Why are we trying to mess with iran via sanctions and proxy? We did that with the soviet union during the cold war, because they could destroy us. Iran is a nothing on the global power scale. If we really think that they are making nukes, supplying global terrorists that attack us, and are sending army officers to help insurgents kill us in iraq, then annihilate them.

Non-muslim Iranian citizens have far fewer rights than non-Jewish Israeli citizens.

I agree with Nydgan
After finishing with Iran we need to target Venezuela after all they are becoming increasingly hostile against he good global take over by the powers of the NWO.
BTW it is any other country that we need to nuke?, after all we can not just take one we need to take them all.

I would also like to add that your title is misleading and incorrect in that the way it is written implies Iran is subjecting itself to an aparthied system. Perhaps you should re-write it in a more factual manner.

It is obvious Israel is an aparthied state.
What makes Iran one is that the Baha'i's are being systematically excluded from the social and economic life of the country.
am not familiar with the Bahai so I would not feel comfortable commenting on their situation within Iran.
Actually that is how the war happy people like it, all war and mayhem.
