Why is the Bab shrine located in Haifa (Israel)?

The shrine was built in 1953 over the grave of Sayyid Ali Muhammad and is the world headquarters of the Bahai faith.

Sayyid `Alí Muhammad (Arabic: سيد علی ‌محمد‎ ) (October 20, 1819 – July 9, 1850) was a merchant from Shiraz, Persia, who at the age of twenty-five claimed to be a new and independent Manifestation of God and the promised Qá'im (Mahdí). After his declaration he took the title of Báb (Arabic: باب‎ ) meaning "Gate". Six years later he was shot by a firing squad in Tabriz.

Mírzá Ḥusayn-`Alí (Persian: میرزا حسین علی‎), (1817 - 1892), was a follower of the Bab. He is called Bahá'u'lláh (ba-haa-ol-laa Arabic: بهاء الله‎ "Glory of God") and is the founder and prophet of the Bahá'í Faith. He claimed to fulfill the Bábí prophecy of "He whom God shall make manifest" (Arabic: من یظهر الله‎ , Persian: مظهر کلّیه الهی‎ ), but in a broader sense he also claimed to be the "supreme Manifestation of God"[1], referring to the fulfillment of the eschatological expectations of a prophetic cycle beginning with Adam, and including Abrahamic religions, as well as Zoroastrianism, the great Dharmic religions, and others. Bahá'ís see Bahá'u'lláh as the initiator of a new religion, as Jesus or Muhammad — but also the initiator of a new cycle, like that attributed to Adam. The shrine of Bahá'u'lláh is in Akko, Israel.

Bahá'u'lláh authored many religious works, most notably the Kitáb-i-Aqdas and the Kitáb-i-Íqán. He died in Bahjí, Palestine, present day Israel, and is buried there.

Is there a double standard flying heritage flags?
