In larger Baha'i communities, members do not elect National Spiritual Assemblies directly. First, the Baha'is in a specific area will gather and elect among themselves a delegate who will represent them at the National Convention.
Ali bin Abu Talib (A.S.) was the cousin and son-in-Law of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.). It is outside the scope of this presentation to record the numerous achievements and merits of Imam Ali (A.S.). His exalted personality is such that even the most learned scholars are at a loss to fathom his greatness.

I am not sure that Naamah Pyritz, one of the co-producers, actually signed off on the documentary being a mockumentary. I communicated with her directly after it aired in OZ and on email, and that view was the farthest thing from her sentiment at the time. Pyritz also indicated that she was frightened of these people and that she would not pursue anything further, like a sequel to the documentary.
He should have known there was a pandemic of this disease before going to London and chosen instead to stay in Haifa and send a Hand of the Cause of God to go there instead. But it seems he was idiotic enough to believe that he was under the "care and protection" of the Bab and Baha'u'llah, so nothing would happen to him. He was wrong......and so is every Baha'i who believes in his "Guardianship".

To me, one of the most damning things about Baha'i history is the way the family of Baha'u'llah repeatedly tore itself apart over the "Covenant" of the Faith. The first such split was between Baha'u'llah and his brother Mirza Yahya (Sub-i-Azal). Yahya had been appointed by the Bab to lead the Babi community, but after a few years it became increasingly clear to most Babis that Baha'u'llah was the better leader and so when he declared himself to be the one the Bab had foretold would come after him, most of the Babis promptly became Baha'is.
