Eminent Native Baha'i Informers of Empire in the 20th Century: Hasan M. Balyuzi

by Nima Wahid Azal



In this podcast Keyvan Yahyaʾi and I discuss the career of Ḥasan M. Balyūzī, Bahāʾī native informer and lackey of the British establishment; Hand of the Cause appointed by Shoghi Effendi; and the first head and spokesman of the BBC Persian section; and how the career and position of Ḥasan M. Balyūzī proves uncritically the appendage and vassalage nature of the Haifan Bahāʾī organization to the Anglo-American establishment.

Translation of Keyvan Yahyaʾis opening exordium in Arabic (from the first line of the Obligatory Bayānī prayer for Fridays https://youtu.be/Am5KFBziTis).

In the Name of God the Most Impregnable, the Most Holy!

Glorified art Thou, O God my Lord, I beseech Thee by Thy Divinity which is conqueringly victorious over All-Things that Thou make triumphant the essence of the possessor every Letter Alif who shall believe in the One Thou shalt Manifest on the Day of Resurrection, the Essence of the Proof of Thy Mighteous Supremity! Verily Thou art Powerful over All-Things! (my trans.)

Desparate Baha'is cunningly teach Baha'i faith to innocent people through PSA Programs / seminars.

Non-Baha'i participants of PSA program in Africa

About PSA Program, One Baha'i claims :

The Preparation for Social Action (PSA) program seeks to empower youth by making math, science, language, community development, and technology applicable to their everyday lives. Its curriculum is both theoretical and action-oriented, integrating study with community-building activities. To date, PSA has reached over 500 community members.

PSA was originally developed by The Foundation for the Application and Teaching of the Sciences (FUNDAEC) in the 1970s. Its success in rural communities throughout Colombia sparked the interest of the international community and its curriculum has since been re-written to suit a global audience. In its early years, the Kimanya-Ngeyo Foundation received direct support from FUNDAEC in the form of startup costs, learning materials, and tutor training.
I've started the first book called "properties". It's a mix of simple yet advanced scientific concepts. It's really engaging and I can totally see the parallels between science and the Baha'i teachings.

I encourage all of you to try find a group near you. There are so many units. It's like the Ruhi institute but more tailored towards science, language, technology, management etc.

In India, Hindus are deceptively being converted to Baha'i Faith through PSA Seminars.
In the Ridvan 2010 message, the Universal House of Justice mentioned that, all social action seeks to apply the teachings and principles of the faith to improve some aspects of social or economic life of a population however modestly”. 

In another message the Universal House of Justice reiterated, “The work advancing in every corner of the globe today represents the latest stage of the ongoing Baha’i endeavour to create the nucleus of the glorious civilization enshrined in His teachings, the building of which is an enterprise of infinite complexity and scale, one that will demand centuries of exertion by humanity to bring to fruition. There are no shortcuts, no formulas. Only as effort is made to draw on insights from His Revelation, to tap into the accumulating knowledge of the human race, to apply His teachings intelligently to the life of humanity, and to consult on the questions that arise will the necessary learning occur and capacity be developed”. 

PSA Seminar in Vietnam

Hundreds of thousands of verses written by Baha'u'llah were thrown into the River!

Referring to the prolific nature of Baha’u’llah's revelation of verses, Shoghi Effendi writes "that during the first two years after His return from His retirement, according to the testimony of Nabil, who was at that time living in Baghdad, the unrecorded verses that streamed from His lips averaged, in a single day and night, the equivalent of the Quran! As to those verses which He either dictated or wrote Himself, their number was no less remarkable than either the wealth of material they contained, or the diversity of subjects to which they referred. A vast, and indeed the greater, proportion of these writings were, alas, lost irretrievably to posterity. No less an authority than Mirza Aqa Jan, Baha’u’llah's amanuensis, affirms, as reported by Nabil, that by the express order of Baha’u’llah, hundreds of thousands of verses, mostly written by His own hand, were obliterated and cast into the river. Finding me reluctant to execute His orders, Mirza Aqa Jan has related to Nabil, Baha’u’llah would reassure me saying: "None is to be found at this time worthy to hear these melodies" '...Not once, or twice, but innumerable times, was I commanded to repeat this act.'

(God Passes By : 137-38)

Baha'u'llah plainly contradicts himself on his supposed "innate knowledge"

In the Lawḥ-i ḥikma he writes:

We perused not the books which men possess and We acquired not the learning current amongst them, and yet whenever We desire to quote the sayings of the learned and of the wise, presently there will appear before the face of thy Lord in the form of a tablet all that which hath appeared in the world and is revealed in the Holy Books and Scriptures. Thus do We set down in writing that which the eye perceiveth.

Yet, in the Kitāb-i Īqān (para. 203), he writes:

[A] certain man, reputed for his learning and attainments, and accounting himself as one of the pre-eminent leaders of his people, hath in his book denounced and vilified all the exponents of true learning [...] We felt it necessary to refer to his books, in order that We might answer Our questioners with knowledge and understanding. His works, in the Arabic tongue, were, however, not available, until one day a certain man informed Us that one of his compositions, entitled Irshadu’l-‘Avám, could be found in this city [...] We sent for the book, and kept it with Us a few days. It was probably referred to twice.


An interesting 'comment' from an online debate about Baha'i persecution in Iran.

Baha'i Administration is banned in Iran.

Baha'is formed illegal administration (YARAN), underground university (BIHE) in Iran.

Most Iranian Baha'is are affluent people. Check these links

Baha'is are allowed to obtain higher education if they don't write their religion as Baha'i.

Baha'i business are shut down because they keep their shops closed on Baha'i holidays, which is not allowed in Iran - they violate the laws of Land by following Baha'i laws.

Some Baha'i graves were destroyed, I don't know exact reason why they were destroyed... but there are many burial grounds for Baha'is where Baha'is are free to bury their dead. There is one in Tehran about which Baha'is lied. and here are videos of Baha'i burial / funeral in Iran.

I think they are free to bury their dead in government recognized cemeteries. You as a Baha'i who condemns the destruction of Baha'i graves should also remember the treatment that Baha'is gave to Diya'u'llah's grave in Palestine!

Yes, some of them are treated second-class citizens if they disclose their faith. If they keep their faith to themselves they are treated as any other Iranian. You as a Baha'i should not forget the treatment you guys give to Covenant-Breakers!

Phobia indoctrination: Haifan Baha'is inculcating irrational fears about Covenant Breakers

"It is true that should a believer read the writings of Covenant-breakers or enemies of the Cause and permit these words to instill doubts about the truth of Bahá'u'lláh's Cause such a believer would then be considered as having been infected by the poison of Covenant-breaking. However, since you returned the book to your local library upon being informed of the true nature of its contents and told your District Teaching Committee and your National Spiritual Assembly about the matter, it is clear that you took the correct steps and should therefore, with complete confidence, turn to Bahá'u'lláh for protection and guidance, fully assured that His promise to assist those who turn to Him will be fulfilled."
(From a letter dated 29 March 1977 to an individual believer)

Former Indian Baha'i writes an open letter protesting deceptive conversion of children to the Baha'i Faith.

The Baha’is are conducting children moral classes across the country, as if improving morality of the society is their patented right.

Baha’is dispatch tutors to housing colonies to collect names of children in age group between 5-12 years. The tutors convey to the parents that at a convenient location moral classes would be conducted, absolutely free. The parents, at times with little or no verification of credentials, agree to send their wards.

The classes are conducted at the house of a committed Baha’i, who stays close-by, and under the direct patronage of the Baha’i local assembly. As the tutor takes the innocent children through the course with songs, prayers, games and so-called value upliftment stories, the message of the Baha’i Faith penetrates as a hidden agenda. After building a good-will, the parents are invited to parties in the moral classes, where after a few rounds of songs and prayers, parents are given some feedback of their wards. Here again a few glimpses of the Baha’i Faith are conveyed. At times, the parents are encouraged to attend classes conducted for the elderly. These classes are called as Ruhi Classes. Since parents are busy and cannot devote time, the Ruhi Classes are conducted at a frequency of once or twice a week – mostly on weekends.

The Baha’is, thus in a short time of say two months, have two or three patrons from a family. Soon an invitation comes to attend special functions held at the Baha’i Local Assembly Centre. As you would have guessed, the exposure to Baha’i Faith here to gullible children and unsuspecting parents increases.

There are cases where within a year, the parents are offered change of faith option by the same tutors who had approached with an innocent request to conduct moral classes. This is how the Baha’i Faith discreetly carries on its propagation activities. The conversion is so low key that the individuals are given the facility to retain their names.

Such classes are spread across India, in all metropolitan cities and certain smaller towns. Working parents who have little time to spend with their children find such classes useful to take care of their children. Little do they probe of the background of the tutor or why would such service be available free. Unknowingly the patronage of Baha’i Faith increases in the country.

1. In India, Baha’is have been caught with sensitive Government information. Some have been apprehended for having duplicate passports and travel papers. Attached herewith a newspaper report to validate my findings. 

2. Baha’i education institutes have been previously under government scanner and had to face temporary closure due to public outcry.

The seemingly innocent but certainly deceptive ‘social activity’ if left unchecked, would have alarming repercussions. There are several questions that we as responsible citizens must ask ourselves:

1. Is our school and college syllabus on moral studies not adequate, that we need support of such religious groups?

2. Why do religious groups have to venture beyond their community to other communities? Can this responsibility not be undertaken by each community and religious group within their community?

3. Are these tutors conducting courses under government overview? Should these classes not be conducted with government knowledge?

4. At the tender age of 5-12 years, children are left under tutelage of unknown persons. At this age, any idea conveyed gets acceptance. Should the citizens of India not be alerted of this silent activity which is happening in our major cities and towns?

5. Is the Hindu religion, society and culture lacking of moral concepts, that we leave our children at hands of persons following little known religious beliefs which have come to India from foreign lands?

A. UHJ asks Baha’is to Start Baha’i Children Classes

The Universal House of Justice, the Baha’i Apex Body situated at Haifa, Israel, believes that by conducting Baha’i children classes and by inviting non Baha’i children to it the Baha’i Faith will penetrate into the local population and this way the roots of Baha’i Faith will strengthen in the society.
1) “Classes for the spiritual education of children and junior youth serve to strengthen the roots of the Faith in the local population.”

(Message from Universal House of Justice, The Baha’i Apex body, 27 December 2005)

2) “Aware of the aspirations of the children of the world and their need for spiritual education, they extend their efforts widely to involve ever-growing contingents of participants in classes that become centres of attraction for the young and strengthen the roots of the Faith in society.”

(Message from Universal House of Justice, The Baha’i Apex body , Ridvan 2008)

3) “Let them never forget the imperative to tend to the needs of the children of the world and offer them lessons that develop their spiritual faculties and lay the foundations of a noble and upright character.”

(Message from Universal House of Justice, The Baha’i Apex body , 20 October 2008)

4) “… The steady multiplication of core activities, propelled by the training institute, creates a sustainable pattern of expansion and consolidation that is at once structured and organic. As seekers join these activities and declare their faith, individual and collective teaching endeavours gather momentum. Through the effort made to ensure that a percentage of the new believers enrol in the institute courses, the pool of human resources required to carry out the work of the Faith swells. When strenuously pursued in a cluster, all of this activity eventually brings about conditions favourable for launching an intensive programme of growth.”

(Universal House of Justice, 27 December 2005)

5. “Drawing on the wealth of experience now accumulated in this area of endeavour, institutes will have to provide their communities with a constant stream of human resources to serve the process of entry by troops… Study circles, reinforced by extension courses and special campaigns, have shown their ability to lend structure to the process of spiritual education at the grassroots.”

(Universal House of Justice, 9 January 2001)

B. Baha’i Administration wants to expand the children classes of different age groups as young as 5 years.

The International Teaching Centre(ITC) another important Baha’i administrative Body wants to expand the children classes in various countries of different continent and trap kids as young as 5 years.

“As you know the International Teaching Centre has been asked by the Universal House of Justice in the Ridvan 2010 message to give special consideration to the implementation of Baha’i children’s classes and to provide an “analysis of the experience gained in a few selected clusters this coming year, representative of diverse social realities” that “will shed light on practical issues which will make possible the establishment of regular classes, for children of every age, in neighbourhoods and villages.”

We look forward to having a rigorous discourse with all the Boards of Counsellors during this year about the systematization of children’s classes and as a first step, we wish to begin with an initial basic survey of a few selected clusters in each continent which would provide us with the practical context in which to clarify the current realities and issues.

•Age of the children participating in these classes to be categorized in at least three levels.

Level 1,   5-6 years,
Level 2,   6-7 years,
Level 3,   7-8 years.

First level can have different age groups. In subsequent levels all should try to normalize age groups of the children.”

C. Baha’i children classes will attract many families to Faith

(Letter dated 9 October 2007 written on behalf of the Universal House of Justice to an individual)

Dear Bahá’í Friends,

Your email letter...regarding children’s classes…has been received by the Universal House of Justice, and we have been asked to respond as follows.

Your heartfelt concern for the education of Bahá’í children and your desire for a national Bahá’í curriculum which follows a well-conceived and systematic program of learning are appreciated…

Should you have suggestions to make about the nature of the program that is being developed at the national level, you are encouraged to share your ideas with your National Assembly.

With regard to neighbourhood children’s classes, this is a most promising development which will undoubtedly attract to the Faith many families concerned about the spiritual and moral education of their children, and the friends should not underestimate the power of their children becoming involved in them. Indeed, many stories have been received that describe a strengthening of Bahá’í identity as Bahá’í children participate in classes with children from the wider society.
We are to assure you of the prayers of the House of Justice in the Holy Shrines that your efforts to advance the Cause of God and to further the spiritual and moral education of children will attract the confirmations of the Blessed Beauty.

With loving Bahá’í greetings,

Department of the Secretariat

D. The purpose of Baha’i Classes is to reach out to greater number of children of the wider society (Non Baha’is)

(Letter dated 22 November 2009 written on behalf of the Universal House of Justice to an individual)

Dear Bahá’í Friend,

The Universal House of Justice has received your email letter dated… seeking clarification regarding Bahá’í children’s classes. Your concern for the effective education of Bahá’í children is warmly appreciated. The House of Justice feels that the issues you raise should be considered in the context of current developments in the Bahá’í world and, in this connection, we have been asked to provide the following comments, acknowledging with regret the delay in our response.

The establishment of children’s classes, one of the core activities of the Five Year Plan, is intended to address young people’s need for spiritual education up to about age 11. An outward-looking orientation in this sphere of service has enabled Bahá’ís across the world to reach out to greater numbers of children than could ever have been contemplated heretofore. In particular, Bahá’í communities have increasingly come to conceive of the education they offer as being for all children, without distinguishing between those that come from a Bahá’í background and others. Clearly, this has implications for the organization and coordination of classes. It also has a profound impact on the conception of the Bahá’í community in terms of its interactions with wider society.

All this does not necessarily imply the redundancy of centralized children’s classes. Rather, in each locality consideration must be given, with a humble attitude of learning, as to how best to provide a spiritual education for ever-growing numbers of children. In this light, the issue of neighbourhood and centralized classes should not be understood as a dichotomy of mutually exclusive approaches, but as a question of the practical means by which the necessarily limited resources of the community can best be applied to the priorities at hand. In a letter written to you on behalf of the House of Justice dated 9 October 2007, it was observed that neighbourhood children’s classes are a most promising development and that in many instances they have led to a strengthening of Bahá’í identity as Bahá’í children participate in classes with children from the wider society. The past two years have offered further proof of the potential they hold. It is expected that, through experience and consultation with the relevant institutions, the classes held in neighbourhoods will continually improve until they equal or surpass the standard of any centralized children’s classes that previously existed.

It is hoped that the above comments will be of assistance to you. Should you have further questions on the subject of the Bahá’í education of children in your community, it is best to refer them in the first instance to your National Spiritual Assembly.

With loving Bahá’í greetings,

Department of the Secretariat

What has to be done?

Since Baha’i Faith is not a Faith or Religion but its sole purpose is to be against the revealed religion, spread immorality and to gather information’s of targeted countries. We have some solutions to offer. As Baha’is betray humanity the suggestions are not country or any group specific but they are universal. It is the duty of every one of us to save their children, their society , culture and their country. I am sure every sane and responsible world citizen will take these suggestions seriously as it is the need of the hour.

1. Put activities of this faith under scanner – how do funds come, what are the foreign connections.

2. Advise all police stations in metropolitan cities and towns to convey to housing colonies about being on alert of such invitations of the children classes being conducted.

3. Encourage all communities to start such activities for its members.

4. Review government grants and support extended to Baha’i institutes.

5. Prevent government servants and ministers from attending Baha’i invitations for any ceremonies, functions or programmes.

6. Baha’is should conduct the classes only with Baha’i children and they should not invite non Baha’i children.

I had unknowingly come in close contact of the Baha’i Faith through volunteering to send my daughter to such children classes in Hrishikesh Nagar area of Delhi. It was only after a close relative, who had a better understanding of what lied in store alerted me, that I became aware of where I was headed. I am lucky of having been alerted well in time. But what about the hundreds of other citizens who fall in the trap?

The couple, members of the Baha’i faith who sought asylum in the U.S. were arrested and sent to prison for submitting false information to obtain the government contracts.

A former University of Florida nuclear engineering professor found guilty of fraudulently obtaining government contracts was sentenced Tuesday to six months in prison followed by home confinement and probation.

Samim Anghaie must report for prison on Jan. 9 and will remain free until then. His wife, Sousan Anghaie, was sentenced to six months of home confinement for her role in the enterprise.

They must pay $100,000 each in fines, forfeit $390,252 to the federal government and pay other costs associated with the case.

They were convicted in February of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and more than two dozen counts of wire fraud for submitting false information to obtain contracts from NASA and the U.S. Air Force. They faced up to 20 years in prison for each of the wire-fraud charges.

However, Senior U.S. District Judge Stephan Mickle said the facts of the case must be more intricate than “garden variety” to warrant the harsher sentences.

Lloyd Vipperman Jr. and Stephen Bernstein, attorneys for the Anghaies, said they believe the sentences were reasonable.

“We’re very pleased. I think the judge put his heart and soul in considering this one and did an excellent job,” Bernstein said.

U.S. Attorney Greg McMahon would not comment after the sentencing. However, during the proceedings he was critical of Mickle’s decision to sustain objections from the defense attorneys regarding financial losses to the government. Those decisions reduced the potential sentences under sentencing guidelines.

“I’m more than surprised at the court’s ruling,” McMahon said of Mickle’s decision to sustain objections. “I disagree vehemently. There was no evidence this was anything but an attempt to funnel money to (themselves).“

The Anghaies were charged with submitting false information, including research taken from UF students without their knowledge, to obtain the government contracts.

They obtained $3.4 million in contracts since 1999 and used money from the contracts to buy vehicles and homes, according to prosecutors.

The FBI raided Samim Anghaie’s UF office and seized the family’s property in February 2009. The couple was arrested that October.

The couple are members of the Baha’i faith who sought asylum in the U.S. on the basis of Iran’s persecution of members of the religion, according to immigration documents.
Samim Anghaie started at UF in 1980 and was director of its Innovative Nuclear Space Power and Propulsion Institute, before losing the position over the fraud case.


Baha'i Hypocrisy : Unity of Mankind, Unity of Religions!

Prominent Indian Baha'i Vikas Dubey gets sanctioned (punished) for ignoring Baha'i Marriage laws. Ironically sitting beside him is Sama Sabet (LSA Member) who has also violated Baha'i Laws by keeping illicit relations with a prominent Indian Journalist, but she was never sanctioned! RIP Baha'i Justice

Baha'is apparently proclaim the Unity of Mankind and Unity of Religions. Now check the ruling of the UHJ's about those Baha'is who marry according to other religious laws.

A different case arises when a believer dissimulates his faith solely for the purpose of getting married under another religion. Such an action merely in order to evade the requirements of Bahá’í law and to enable him to have the ceremony of the other religion is not permissible and would usually lead to the imposition of administrative sanctions. In addition, if the parents actively take part in facilitating such a marriage, they would be subject to the same sanctions as would apply to the child.

You also seek guidance with regard to whether parents could attend the Muslim wedding of their daughter, who is seeking to convert to Islam for the sole purpose of marrying under that religion. In such a case, the general principle regarding believers attending weddings of Bahá’ís who are marrying contrary to Bahá’í law would apply. That is, if it is known beforehand that a believer is violating such laws, it would be inappropriate for the friends to attend the ceremony, out of respect for Bahá’í law. This same principle would apply to attendance at a reception celebrating the marriage. Nevertheless, the concern and care that the parents have for their child would naturally be unaffected even if she lost her administrative rights as the result of such a marriage.

Thanks to Rahul D. for sharing the news.

There has been no persecution of the Baha'is in Iran.

Dale, in America when a group of prominent people in, let's say, Alabama swindle the state and people of millions under a previous state administration and get prosecuted and go to jail under the subsequent one, you call it a scandal and justice. You never characterize the crooks as being persecuted or question the narratives around it. But when it comes to countries like Iran and the same situation, even liberals like you buy into the "persecution" myth, which is why I am generally critical of your stance on Iran, Islam etc as being biased and largely uninformed.

There has been no persecution of the Baha'is in Iran. Those 200+ Baha'is who were executed via revolutionary justice between the years of 1979-1985 got exactly what they deserved because of 1) the close proximity of the Baha'i administration and community to the previous regime with its gangster cronyism, 2) the guilt of those people in a litany of economic crimes under the previous regime, 3) the intimate ties and proximity of the Baha'i administration and individuals with the governments of Israel, the United Kingdom and the United States, 4) continued espionage by the Baha'is against the interests of the Iranian state and 5) failing to disband the Baha'i administration with its public activities when they had made unequivocal undertakings to do so.

Now, the Haifan Baha'is claim that there are 200,000 to 300,000 Baha'is in Iran. They have claimed such a number since 1979. How do you have persecution when not even 1% of that number has been officially tallied as persecuted? Please use your head and quit repeating parrot tales and swan songs of yesteryear the Baha'is may have gotten your sympathy with at the time. Kindly bury this persecution myth.

This is a portrait of Baha'u'llah... NOOO This cannot be regarded as being [a portrait] of Baha'u'llah!!?

Baha'ism is a cult

Between Kashmir and Tibet, Jamal Effendi had to encounter great numbers of the Isma'ili sect, followers of Aqa Khan-i-Mahallati. The majority of these people were bloodthirsty and savage.

You should avoid the Ismailis. There is no possibility of their becoming Bahá'ís. On the contrary, they are our potential enemies. You should stay away from them.

Baha'i Moral Class Teacher, Dr. Mark Hormuz Dean arrested for raping victims at Virginia clinic

ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. – A Virginia doctor has been arrested and charged with raping victims at his Albemarle County clinic.

Dr. Mark Hormuz Dean, 50, of Keswick, was charged with two felony counts of Rape, two felony counts of Object Sexual Penetration, and one felony count of Forcible Sodomy, according to an Albemarle County Police spokesperson.

Dean was indicted Friday on the five felony charges by an Albemarle-based Central Virginia Multijurisdictional Grand Jury.

“Dean allegedly assaulted victims at the Albemarle Pain Management Associates Clinic,” Albemarle County Police Department Public Information Officer Madeline Curott said. “He is currently being held at the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail without bond. The investigation is ongoing.”

The offense dates span from 2011 to 2015, according to Albemarle County Commonwealth’s Attorney Robert Tracci.

Anyone with information about the case was asked to call the Albemarle County Police Department at 434-296-5807.

Doctor’s orders: Physician makes bond, put on house arrest

The Pantops-area doctor arrested last Friday on five felonies related to allegedly raping and sexually assaulting his patients will be released from jail on a $50,000 bond.

A mass of friends and family showed in support of Mark Hormuz Dean, the Albemarle Pain Management Associates Clinic physician, and sat shoulder to shoulder in the crowded courtroom.

Several witnesses, including Dean’s father-in-law and a friend who also was a patient, testified about the character of the man who has been indicted on two counts of rape, two counts of object sexual penetration and one count of forcible sodomy.

Since his January 5 arrest, prosecutor Darby Lowe said five additional victims have come forward.

“When he’s not working, he’s constantly with his children,” said Peter Pellechia, the father of Dean’s wife and a retired NYPD homicide investigator. “He takes them and they go fishing.”

Dean is married to Stacy Pellechia Dean, an adjunct instructor at UVA’s Curry School of Education, and the couple lives in an Ednam Forest with two kids who are 15 and 13 years old, according to Pellechia’s testimony. The Deans purchased the house last year for $1.35 million, according to county property records.

Derrick Stone, the director of software development for the UVA Health System, told the judge that Dean often brings his children to Stone’s home for spiritual education classes on the religion they both share, called Baha’i, which teaches the unity of all people and the worth of all religions.
Stone, like the other witnesses who testified, said he was shocked to learn of the allegations against Dean.
