What Robin Williams said is true, obviously . . . but Baha'is have a different standard we are called to: "Believers, he added, must show their belief in their daily lives, so that the world might see the light shining in their faces… . If the day be dark, how much a gleam of sunshine is prized; so let believers wear smiling happy faces, gleaming like sunshine in the darkness. (‘Abdu’l-Bahá, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá in London, p. 124-125)

The Baha'i's evil plot to overthrow Islam and achieve world domination by being kind to animals is finally exposed! Read the translation of what this Mullah has to say below!

Timeline Photos

Laughter is the best medicine for ignorance! Made my day - thanks most learned mullah:

Translation:
“Whenever I think back to my childhood as a
Moslem we were always told: Dogs are unclean,
crows and owls bring misfortune. Most animals
were unclean and we threw stones at them and chased them away.
What has happened that all of a sudden people
like cats and dogs ? For this only the Baha’is
are to blame, because 100 years ago ‘Abdu’l-Baha wrote:

‘Educate your children that they may show
great love and mercy towards animals. If an
animal is sick they should try to heal it; when
it is hungry they should feed it; when it is
thirsty they should give it to drink and when it
is tired they should let it rest…’

This is how they are striving to destroy Islam.
They have now succeeded that the whole world loves cats and dogs…”
