Something of Importance Appears on Facebook.

Correct. The next is from a recently formed Facebook group.

Let's take action!

The Iranian ISNA news agency has reported that next week the seven members of the ad hoc administrative group, also known as the “Friends in Iran,” who supervised the affairs of the believers in that country until their arrest in early 2008, will be put on trial in an Iranian revolutionary court on charges of “espionage for Israel, insulting religious sanctities and propaganda against the Islamic Republic.” These charges, clearly, are nothing more than a sham on the part of the Iranian
government in an attempt to justify its documented and reprehensible intention to bring harm not only to the Iranian Bahá'í leadership, but to the whole of the Iranian Bahá'í community.

Here's what we can do for them:

Please Contact your federal Congressional Representatives from both the House of Representatives and the Senate, by telephone or email, or in person at their district offices. Express to them or their staff your deep concern for the Iranian Bahá'í leaders whose lives are in danger. Most of the members of Congress will be in their home districts the week of February 15, as there is a Congressional recess at that time. You may find the following websites useful in identifying your Congressional Representatives: and type in your Zip Code + 4 and select your state

and please don't forget to keep them in your prayers,

Sina Sabet,
