On Noting a Human Rights Victory: Baha'i Faith in Egypt

This blogger has discovered Baha'i Faith in Egypt, one of the highest ranked Baha'i blogs on the Internet. A keyword search today for "Baha'i" on Google shows it coming in as the 33rd result. -gw

I find this faith and this blog, Baha'i Faith in Egypt fascinating because it depicts the efforts of uniting people of all faiths and the struggle they face from opposition. It shocks me that a religion or belief system that seemingly welcomes and accepts a huge umbrella of people faces the prejudice and scrutiny it does it Egypt. Several blog entries explain that Egyptian Baha'i followers were only recently issued the right to obtain ID cards and birth certificates, obviously a huge victory.
