The respected German author historian Götz Aly has written clearly and ably of the annihilation of European Jewry identifying an often unstated goal of the master murderers: They wanted the money. And the killers wanted anything of value that could be monetized from the property of the soon to be piles of ash once called humans and now referred to as sub-human waste.
 
It was not a complicated process: throw the Jews out of their homes. Steal their property. Take everything out of the apartments or houses down to the light bulbs and toilet paper. Send the confiscated goods back to Germany (furniture was very important for German families).
 
The government was deep in the process. As the Jews possessions are taken, herd them into detention locations, guard them and then get them on the trains to an extermination center. Once there, get them naked, kill them and empty the pockets of the murdered and the one suitcase they were permitted to bring. Repeat the process.
 
Good formula for quick riches and fast death of people you didn’t like because their religion wasn’t yours. Just kill them. Rob them. Erase them.
 
Reports indicate it’s not as serious as that for the Baha’is in Iran, a religion founded in the 19th century that the Ayatollahs deem heretical. They just killed a few of them, put many in jail, and apparently confiscated Baha’i property. And just like the Nazis they made their crimes legal.
 
According to Wall Street Journal and Reuters reports, the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has used Baha’i property for his own piggy bank. The more they grab, the richer he gets. They just grab whatever they want and auction it off, and keep what’s left. It is reported that less than a year ago they sold off $88 million worth of other people’s property. Why? They just don’t like their religion.
 
People can complain all they want (often stupidly so) about the United States but it’s hard to imagine someone from the government showing up at your door and saying, get out, go now, or we’ll kill you because the president or some other official needs a quick bridge loan to buy a better house, or take a vacation, or even store it up for whatever enters his brain tomorrow.
 
The peace-loving religious leadership of the theocracy called Iran has made felonies legal. The thieving religious leaders create foundations run by the government where they store their stolen gains. It’s simply thievery from the people by the people and benefiting only some of the people. In Iran, membership in the proper religion makes stealing not only permissible but also praiseworthy. After all, if the chief holy man is a crook, imagine what average people can aspire to be.
 
You don’t have to be a Baha’i to become a victim, the reports say. You just have to be someone the government doesn’t like. Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, the Ayatollahs’ storm troopers were reported a few years back to be generating about $12 billion per year. No one is denying these crimes. In fact, it’s kleptocracy at its best.
 
What is worth noting is that no one is in the streets of any western capital saying stop the killing, stop the stealing, stop the demeaning of religion you thieving Ayatollahs and your agents. Nope. Not a word. First it’s your house and your money they take because they don’t believe in your god. Next they’ll kill you to prove they are right. After all, if you existed simply to live for the Ayatollahs so they could profit because they said you were a heretic, then the next step is to prove you don’t deserve the protection of the Lord.

That’s how it works when religion is debased and the commandment that says don’t steal gets erased.
