rockets hit Haifa  
Stella Maris, near the Cave of Elijah on Mount Carmel, was hit. So far it looks like no casualties were reported. It appears as though the Baha'is are ok so far. The Cave of Elijah and Stella Maris are fairly close to the Terraces and Shrine.

Everyone please say prayers for everyone in that region, and that the hostilities end quickly.

(For you those of you who might not be aware, the holiest Shrines of the Baha'is are located in Haifa & Akka, Israel. Also, the Baha'i World Centre is located on Mount Carmel. You can sometimes see the border of Lebanon from the top of the mountain.)

No prob. Also, apparently Stella Maris is near the land that has been put aside for the future temple site (House of Worship)...by a few blocks, I guess.

This is very bad. I am supremely worried by the language exchanged between Israel and Palestine/Lebanon/Hezbollah. It makes me pale when I read that they talk as if they're already at war...

I heard on NPR today that Haifa had been hit...I'm glad to hear none of the Baha'i structures have been damaged. (yet.)

Israel is setting Lebanon back 20 years


Hizbollah has launched at least 70 rockets at Israel


Ahmadinejad is threatening the wrath of Islam if things escalate, while the hostages might be on their way to Iran.

My friend whom I talk about in my post came home from there that morning, and that same day the rockets hit after they left! They were there just before it happened! This makes me upset that there are such insane people in this world who want to blow up people for insane twisted selfish agendas.... this USA government included in that statement!
