Paris on Bahá’u’lláhs birthday 2015.
Hundreds of innocent people are slaughtered by terrorists with automatic weapons, bombs and suicide belts in cafes, restaurants and a concert. Young lives are taken and may never be lived. Culprits who carry such an tremendous hate, that they don’t even care who they kill if it only are as many victims as possible. Their hate is that enormous that they have killed their own souls, but they are not aware of it.
France and Europe sees’ the well coordinated and well planned terrorist attack as an act of war. Then starts the hunt on those who caused this bloodbath and threaten Europe with more terror in the future. Muslims communities in the big cities in will be ransacked, in a Europe which is flooded by Muslim refugees who themselves, most of them, have run from the same terror in Syria and Iraq which now struck Paris (again). And at the borders in European countries the controllers and investigators will never be sure about who are real refugees and who are wolves in sheep clothing. The paranoia in Europe will spread. Who are kind Muslims and who are evil jihadists? And how can we stop youths born and raised in Europe from going to terrorist schools in Middle East? Young people who see no future – that’s why desperate young Germans joined the Nazis in the 1920s and that’s why European Muslim youths join ISIS now. People are afraid, so afraid in Europe, and scared paranoid people can also become very dangerous.
Bahá’u’lláh (12/13 November 1817 – 29/30 May 1892), born Mírzá Ḥusayn-`Alí Núrí in north Iran, taught that humanity is a oneness and that the age is coming for its unification in a global society. He taught that there is only one God, that all the world’s religions are from God (of divine origin, however hollowed and often distorted by man, and that it is time for humanity to recognize its unity and that the age has come for its unification in one global society, peaceful and spiritual oriented. He was imprisonment by Muslims for decades, tortured and exiled. Today Bahá’í is a fast growing religion with around 8 million organized members and the double when it comes to sympathizers.
Religious fanaticism and hatred are a world-devouring fire. (Bahá’u’lláh)
If religion becomes the cause of enmity and bloodshed, then irreligion is to be preferred. For religion is the remedy for every ailment, and if a remedy should become the cause of ailment and difficulty, it is better to abandon it. (Bahá’u’lláhs son, Abbas Effendi, also called ‘Abdu’l-Bahá).
Bahá’ís believe in science, education, gender equality, equalization of wealth, the individual with right predisposition and education on right job… but also in TRUE religion. Then, what is true religion? They believe in Moses, Buddha, Jesus, Mohamed as true prophet and at least the blueprints of the Bible, the Koran, etc, if there only existed any original, untouched remains of humanity’s sacred texts directly from God…
Bahá’u’lláh said that we have to wait for a while for universal peace and an united earth. First men have to fight enormous wars with more dead than ever before (the World wars). Then men will close their hearts before God and fight each other as atheists or in the name of untrue, dangerous religions. After these spiritual crimes, humankind maybe understand that oneness and unity is the only way and start to negotiate about real peace in the name of true religion. So, God is waiting for man to finally leave his primitive nature and become mature, noble and true religious. The task for the Bahá’ís is to hurry up this process towards oneness, international understanding and cooperation and peace as much as possible. They call it The Cause of God.
But right now, in this mess, they are quite.
When can we get an official statement from the Bahá’í faith? – the religion which says that they have God’s plan for a world in peace? The pope and most leaders of the world religions have officially sent their prayers and sympathies to Paris and to the relatives to the victims 13-14 November 2015, but I have still not found any commentaries from Bahá’í leaders referred on Internet (09:00 Nov 15, 2015).
Thou shalt not kill (GOD)
