What Has Gone Wrong
Since I was born in Iran
and lived there for twenty-seven years, then came to
the West and lived here even longer, it is easy for me
to understand the feelings of both sides.
The situation is very complex and
has a long history behind it.
No matter how you look at it and how unbiased you
might be, one side will always be dissatisfied with any
explanation that anyone can give about the relationship
between Iran and the West.
So we will try not to consider it and instead concentrate on what is now
wrong with Iran.
This might help our members realize what is
wrong with many other systems and countries as well.
Difference from the Mission
The very base of the Iranian
system is to elect the elite, mostly those who are well-educated in Islam, as the
top leaders of the country.
It is not a system from the people, by the
people, for the people, based on God’s Laws (Dharma) as
the Mission system is.
It is based on decisions from people who emerge
from religious establishments and so the laws are based on
their opinions of what Islam means and
what God meant for their subjects.
Of course we know Islam is only one seventh of
God’s Revelations and Truth and so what they have cannot
be representative of God.
The founders of their
system also envisioned that they should have
representatives from the people.
That is the part their elections are for, and
the executive branch of the government is supposed to come
from the masses.
However, the elite part of the system, which is
mostly from religious establishments, has very little
tolerance for dissent and disagreements from anyone,
including the elected officers.
This becomes obvious when we see that every
president and/or prime minister who was chosen by the people, since the
inception of that regime, has had some problem with the elite.
The elite even eliminated the position of prime minister so
they only have to deal with one person, the president.
This shows they have not much interest in knowing what
the people really
want or, at least, in expanding their tent to include more
of the people.
So when a president comes
along who agrees with the elite, they support him.
This takes out the conflict between these two
However, this will weaken the government as the
voice of the people is no longer heard and the
elite voice becomes the dominating voice. As we know
such a situation will lead to dictatorship (one voice
If they needed a dictatorial system, they had it
before, and where
the Shah ended, will be the fate of all dictators!
Religions and Beliefs Compared to the Mission
The very idea of the Supreme Leader
can be seen as somewhat close to the idea of the Eldest in
However, the Eldest in our system emerges from the
people, not from another system (religious
leaders have not lived in the Communities and so have
not experienced how to listen to the people and
how to establish an environment in which their voices are
Since these leaders have emerged
from religious establishments, their views are also
based on the Shiite understanding of Islam and ignore
all other religions and Revelations from God.
It has no choice but to become narrow.
Another problem with their system
is that the leaders are not Paravipras (incorruptible).
In fact many of these elite are now the
richest people in Iran.
Human nature is very much in force and
corruption is rampant.
As we have explained in our
teachings, you cannot implement God’s Laws
in an unjust and corrupt society and environment.
If the distribution of wealth is
justly done and the minimum necessities for everyone are met, then if
someone steals and will not repent, a harsh punishment
might be warranted.
However, if a person steals because they are in
dire need of their minimum necessities, then they cannot
be judged harshly.
Implement God’s Laws
As we mentioned above, only the
incorruptible can implement God’s Laws.
This is demonstrated by Christ when He asked
people to stone the adulterous woman only if they had no
No one was found without sin and He also forgave her.
In a similar story, a woman brought her child to Gandhi
and asked Gandhi to tell her son not to eat too much sugar, which
is not good for him.
Gandhi told her to come back in three days.
After three days she returned and asked the same
thing from Gandhi.
Gandhi turned to the child and told him to not eat
too much sugar, which is not good for him.
The mother was surprised and asked Gandhi, why did
not you tell him this three days ago when I brought
him over the first time?
Gandhi said, I had a lot of sugar myself on that day!
He who is corrupt supports those
who are corrupt.
Such people cannot be good judges because they
know in their hearts that they too are guilty.
If they were good judges, they would not have
fallen themselves in the first place!
When a corrupt leader makes
wrong judgments and this becomes clear to the people,
such a person (or people) will lose his (their) moral
authority and people will no longer be willing to listen to
It is hard work to establish moral authority
and you will lose it with one wrong judgment (fall).
In order to gain moral authority you have to
live a life beyond reproach.
You have to take extra measures to leave no doubt
in your and others' minds that your actions are pure and
are not based on personal desires.
Indeed it is more important that you leave no doubt in
your own mind than in the minds of others that you have
The question is, have the leaders in
any country created such moral authority?
That is the goal of the Mission teachings: to
create leaders who can establish this moral authority so
people will believe them, and reinforce this trust
in every action they take!
There still seems to be a split among
the people of Iran.
There is a part of their society that is secular and well-educated
and the religious assertion of the old does not appeal
There is a larger part that is still hanging onto the
past and is afraid of any change.
Since the religious teachings are not based on the
expanded realization of the Goal of Life (to become
Divine) and the religion is outdated (all religions are
outdated after this Revelation), they are losing the support of
time passes the split will be widened and the number of
those who will not accept the old will increase.
It is our teachings that satisfy
the intellect and Spirit.
Therefore, as dissatisfaction with the old increases and the human-made system
work anymore, more people will long for a replacement for
will educate them and will be ready at that time!
Should Have Been Done in This Case
As part of creating trust and moral
authority, everyone, including the government, should
act in such a way that they do not leave the slightest
doubt of their purity and trustworthiness.
There was recently an election in Iran where,
rightly or wrongly, the government was accused of fraud
and rigging the election.
They should have openly counted the votes again
and created such an environment that they would
have left no doubt in their and others' minds that the
election was clean.
The government has said that there
outside influences that created the situation. If
that is true, then
expose these influences and clearly show that in fact
such an accusation is valid!
Just saying things and bringing some people to
back you up sounds more like a propaganda ploy than the
truth. Using a historical fear of outside
interference to win is by itself a short-lived success.
Many will realize this as a ploy and hearsay.
Again, to establish moral authority their
government (and all governments) should practice complete
transparency and Truthfulness.
Indeed in the Kingdom this should be practiced
all throughout the earth.
People should not be lied to and manipulated.
Only in such an environment can the Kingdom and
Teaching is Superior to Other Religions, in This Case
For obvious reasons: It includes the
whole Plan of God.
Islam and all other religions are only a part of
a greater Truth.
That greater Truth is now Revealed to humanity.
Furthermore, Shiite is a part of Islam, and not a
large part but a small part.
Our teaching is not a part of any religion, but
all religions are a part of us.
Therefore, we have the superior teaching to all
religions on earth.
Their Salvation is to join us and implement God's most
Our System is Superior to Any System On Earth
It is the only system that is: from
the people, by the people, and for the people!
However, it is not run by people alone.
The head is connected to the Spiritual World
(God, the Whole Truth).
Although leaders are chosen by the people, the
elders and the Eldest have to be connected to the Spirit
and our teachings. So with them connected, the
Spirit of God will come to man.
Indeed the elders and the Eldest are supposed to manifest the
Grace of God and bring it to humanity.
They have the Power of Love not the love of
Our system is not based on an elite
who go to religious schools and become leaders.
They emerge from ordinary people and rise to
They are people who have always been connected to
the Highest and so they have the Grace from the
When the Eldest is chosen He has already demonstrated
the ability to Know the Spirit and man.
So He can bring God to man and man to God!
There is nothing
more destructive than a system which the leaders believe
their power is sanctioned by God but they are not chosen
Our system is
superior to all human-made systems for sure.
Leadership is Looking for the Mehdi to Come
Many of the people in Iran,
including many of their leaders, claim that they are waiting for
the Mehdi (their expected Savior) to come soon.
They believe that they are temporarily
holding the system for Him to take over when He comes.
The question is, would they recognize Him when He
appears, and would they release their power to Him?
If the Mehdi and the Seventh Angel
are One, then they already should realize that this
Revelation fulfills God’s Promise of the Coming of the
Seventh Angel and so their Mehdi is already here.
If they recognize this they can start by
implementing the advice given in this article:
stop all corruption in that government and become
the most transparent and pure government there is,
establish moral authority for the rest of
humanity and gain the trust of their people and others.
This does not mean to succumb to
pressures and influences.
It means to expose such pressures honestly and in a logical
Maybe these influences will also be affected by them
if their moral authority exceeds that of those from outside!
Of course the next step is to
surrender their powers and system to the One they claim
they are waiting for.
Maybe then Iran can become as Medina was for Prophet Muhammad!
the Beginning of the Alignment of Two Camps on Earth
What happens if they do not
accept our proposals!
What will happen if humanity as a whole does not
see the Hand of God in this and will not succumb to His
Will! As God has
already envisioned, this outcome has a greater
possibility than humanity accepting and surrendering to His Will.
If the vision is correct and humanity does not
accept this Call, is this the beginning of the formation
of the two camps that have been prophesied to form at
the end time?
It surely seems that Iran, Russia
and China are coming closer together.
Iran already has a good relationship with Korea.
China is close to Korea.
China has established closer ties to Russia.
With the economy in the state it is in, the West might
the most important customer for China.
What China cares about most is its high growth.
If the West will not help with that, what will
Humanity See These Truths and Surrender and Submit to God
Surely there is much to think about
and contemplate on.
Maybe my articles and writings scare some people.
However, those who are with God have nothing to
be scared about.
They would know that whatever happens, God will be with
However, do not be in the delusion that God is with you.
Only those who accept these teachings and do His
Will can have the certainty that God is with them.

may eventually see these
