There was just posted on the Mandaean list-serve, a letter from Dr. Gregory Stanton, the President of Genocide Watch, in Washington D.C. He is deeply concerned about the Mandaeans and believes them to be experiencing at least the sixth stage of genocide.
Please, join the Mandaean Emergency Campaign to help the humanitarian lobby for their immediate relocation as refugees of the Iraqi War. They are a religious minority, the last Gnostics with religious roots in antiquity. They are a baptizing community. One of their leaders is John the Baptist. They have some communities in the diaspora, mainly in big cities like Detroit and Houston, communities that are willing to help the Iraqi Mandaeans relocate.
