“Legally the police are allowed to tell lies when interrogating suspects. Regardless though, lie detector tests are not admissible in court because they are unreliable and many a criminal can beat them. If one fails, it is not always an indication of lying.”

“Actually you don't need a degree for this one, just the first basic class, Police Science 101. See the chapter on Suspects.”

“Police rule Number one of all child abductions - The parents are prime suspects. Prime suspect rule number one - Get the best lawer you can hire to protect you through police interrogation because the police will try to trap you into saying the wrong things, even if you are totally innocent.

The police saying the parents "...parents are no longer cooperatin­g..." sounds to me like they got smart and got a lawyer because the police resorted to some nasty grilling methods, which some cops resort to when they can't figure out what really happened.

Regardless of the details, I just hope that little girl is safe and will be found soon.”

“They dont even wait to try and find out sometimes before they start blaming the parents. Just like the good people of these posts...they all ALREADY ASSUME the parents did it....so...not much is going to go into an investigation. I agree...they probally lawyered up BECAUSE the police have already tried and convicted them in their hearts....and you would be able to tell fairly quickly were the investigation was headed. If they did do something I am confident they WILL be found out. But if they didnt.....God help them. They are going to need alot of prayers...because most people have already found them guilty.”

Iran's War Against Knowledge -- An Open Letter to the International Academic Community

“That "Increase Diversity Bake Sale" was a purposefully conducted statement by people urging students to think more critically about a legislative bill that will let California public universities consider race and gender in their admissions process, rather then the time honored method of choosing students based on academic ability. The statement these students were making with this sale, was that the so called "Affirmative Action" program is nothing more than practicing racism under the guise of a politically correct, fancy name.”

“It matters not that these youth are Baha'is, what matters is that they are being denied an education and no civilized country should ever deny education to any of it's citizens. That is a crime against humanity and should be vigorously opposed by the world wide community, not just educators, but everyone.

In my previous post I mentioned the 10 female educators of Baha'i children who were hanged for teaching. One of those martyred teachers was a 16 year old girl, Mona Mahmudnizhad. Below is a link to a music video that is worth watching. It tells of her imprisonment and execution. There is also a link to her full story. When the 10 women were taken to the gallows, Mona asked to be last so she could pray for the others. When her turn came, she kissed the noose and placed it around her neck.

“"Olya's Story" below details the arrest and imprisonment of the 10 female Baha'i educators among whom was Mona who was only 16 years of age at that time. You may wish to have a box of tissues by your side though when reading the book.

“I believe that this comment space should be used to discuss the article and it's ramifications and not be used for voicing a hate agenda that is a blatant attempt to discredit the original Baha'i Faith (headquartered in Haifa Bahai.org). I suggest that those interested in the article for what it really is about just ignore the rants and concentrate on what is really important, the denial of education to youth.

The article speaks about the current campaign instituted by the nation of Iran to destroy the Baha'i Institute for Higher Learning (BIHE), where Iranian citizens comprised of members of the Baha'i Faith and Muslims who support, them are suffering, persecution and arrest for the "crime" of teaching, for educating Baha'i youth who are denied any education by the government of Iran.

In October of 1982 10 Baha'i women were imprisoned, tortured and then on 18 June 1983, hanged because they had been caught teaching young Baha'i children. You can read about their story at the following link and believe me, this current story is exactly what happened back then, but I do hope the Baha'i Institute for Higher Learning (BIHE) teachers and administrators will get the world wide support they desperately need so we do not have a repeat of that tragedy:

“Seikilos,

Thank you for taking time to educate people like me who care, but know nothing of all this. You are serving as one candle whose flame is helping shine a light so that others can see.”
