I saw a few church looking places when still in Phoenix with Arab letters but, the English word 'Bahai"? Is that religion counted as "Muslim"? Why I ask is I've NEVER heard of the Bahai kind doing terrorist stuff.

No. They do not believe that mohammed is the prophet. Bahá

They have in fact been persecuted by islamic regimes.

Bahai's could not be farther from it. Very open, acknowledge other religions are different paths to God. They believe in equality of the sexes. The religion is based on peace and unity for all.

Anyone visiting Chicago, it's worth a ride up Lake Shore Drive to visit the Bahai Temple in Wilmette. It's absolutely stunning.

Islamophilic Democrats hate Baha'is because it exposes their favorite religion; Islam.

Muhammad shut the door behind him, as he proclaimed to be the last prophet. Well the prophet of the Baha'is came after Muhammad. What that means is among the Infidels the Baha'is are Islam's enemy numero 1.
Roundup on status Baha’is in Muslim-majority countries

Crazy: some Muslim countries tag Bahai as "Muslim" but, others don't.

See post 7. Dated a woman who was raised Bahai, she was scared to death of Shias. For what ever reason Iranians treat them the same as Heretics

With post #7 this would explain the Democrats. Beginning to see why Obama and Iran officials are pals.

I am Baha'i. I can tell you that it isn't Islam or any variation of it. Baha'is have been persecuted, particularly in Iran, where the faith originated. Many Baha'i communities in the United States have quite a few members from Arab countries, as they have left their native lands to avoid religious persecution.

For more information on what Baha'is believe, check here.

There was some of the Bahai fighting for the US in Vietnam. I had a couple in my unit. They are good people.
