The Hand of Omnipotence has removed the archbreaker of Bahá'u'lláh's
Covenant, his hopes shattered, his plottings frustrated, the society of his
fellow-conspirators extinguished. God's triumphant Faith forges on, its
unity unimpaired, its purpose unsullied, its stability unshaken. Such a death
calls for neither exultation nor recrimination, but evokes overwhelming pity
at so tragic a downfall unparalleled in religious history.
