We are all criminals

I was moved by the article by Rabbi Mark S. Diamond of The Board of Rabbis of Southern California, describing the event he attended in support of the seven Baha’i leaders held in Evin prison in Iran. In a world full of abuses against human dignity, the incarceration of generous, moral, service-orientated leaders is a flashlight on tyrannical acts. There is no room in these incarcerations, for any argument of crime. Rabbi Diamond titles his article, “We are all Baha’is” and in like manner I say, “We are all prisoners.  If these seven should be in prison, all Iranians should be in prison, maybe all of us across the world. seven_in_evin 2009
