The Baha’i Apotheosis
HOW MUCH DO YOU know about the Baha’i faith? If you’re like me it’s very little. But I know a lot more now than I did a few weeks ago when I just knew it as a happy-clappy Iranian New Age equivalent where we all loved and tolerated one another, celebrating diversity while living in a world of tranquility and prosperity. Naturally enough, the Religion of Peace gives this kind of thing short shrift, stringing up its founder (known as the Bab) by the hands to face a firing squad in 1850. Amazingly, the shooters missed the target, hitting the rope instead. A miracle, surely, one that saved his life. Maybe so — but they just strung him up again and didn’t miss this time. And we are told the Baha’i are still getting viciously persecuted to this day, at least in Iran.
So my impression of them had been that of a small, persecuted impoverished Iranian sect. Until I began doing some research on the apparently totally unrelated subject of Sandy Hook which I discovered to be a Baha’i hotspot, centred around the World Unity Project which had been “in full go” at the local elementary school during the events of December 14 2012. The project was masterminded by a Dr. John Woodall.
Dr. Woodall has counseled trauma victims from Uganda, Africa to Bosnia, Europe to New York City following the September 11, 2001, World Trade Center attack; but he never figured on doing the same in Newtown [Sandy Hook] Connecticut, where he and his wife live. He grew up in Chicago and went to Israel in 2009 on a pilgrimage with his future wife who he married in 2012. “It’s heavily ironic,” Woodall said. “My wife and I just got back from Uganda working with child soldiers.” Woodall’s specialty over the years has been helping to build resiliency among children exposed to traumatic situations. “It’s always someplace else,” he said. “Never in my back yard.”
“Until now,” he could have added. Isn’t that amazing – a Jewish psychiatrist who travelled the world ‘counselling children’ ends up running a children’s project in Sandy Hook just as events kick off there? (An inter-faith service was held afterwards: ‘Christianity’ was represented by two female ‘priests’ and a Black African.) And he’s also an active member of the Baha’i religion, despite being Jewish. All of which prompted me to take a deeper look at this strange faith. Truth to tell, I was blown away. On the subject of the NWO their Web site states,
The phrase “New World Order” in the Baha’i faith refers to the replacement of the collective political norms and values of the 19th century with a new system of worldwide governance that incorporates the Baháʼí ideals of unity and justice for all nations, races, creeds, and classes. The idea of world unification, both politically and spiritually, is at the heart of Baháʼí teachings.
Here’s what the great-grandson of the Bab said about it:
The unity of the human race, as envisaged by Baháʼu’lláh, implies the establishment of a world commonwealth in which all nations, races, creeds and classes are closely and permanently united, and in which the autonomy of its state members and the personal freedom and initiative of the individuals that compose them are definitely and completely safeguarded. This commonwealth must, as far as we can visualize it, consist of a world legislature, whose members will, as the trustees of the whole of mankind, ultimately control the entire resources of all the component nations, and will enact such laws as shall be required to regulate the life, satisfy the needs and adjust the relationships of all races and peoples. A world executive, backed by an international Force, will carry out the decisions arrived at, and apply the laws enacted by, this world legislature, and will safeguard the organic unity of the whole commonwealth. A world tribunal will adjudicate and deliver its compulsory and final verdict in all and any disputes that may arise between the various elements constituting this universal system.
Ring any bells?
But it gets better. A lot better. Baha’i is apparently the world’s fastest-growing religion with its teachings translated into no fewer than 800 languages. Far from being a small, marginalised, impoverished, and persecuted sect hiding out in Iran it luxuriates in a lavish state-of-the-art world headquarters in — Haifa, Israel, where they declare that “the Israelis are doing a great job defending us”. (Aren’t those Israelis so sweet?) Adding the final touch, their headquarters building is located on Mount Carmel, overlooking the Valley of Armageddon, where, according to “biblical end times prophecy,” we will see the “gathering of great armies” for “the final battle.”
Here is another interesting thing about this sinister movement which identifies its members by way of individual micro-chipped cards: While its followers are prohibited from taking up arms, they will be allowed to become members of the forthcoming “International Police Force” which will enforce rulings by the “Universal House of Justice.” This court will operate out of the impressive building (shown above) which is located, all ready and waiting, up the road from Baha’i headquarters.
Oh, by the way — they also believe that there’s no such thing as evil and that the old world must be fully destroyed before the new one can be created.
May God bless you all.
