Nathaniel Deutsch speaks out about Mandaeans
Wade brought to my attention an op.ed. piece in the NY Times this morning. Professor Deutsch, a Gnostic expert from Swathmore, has made a plea to us in the Times to help resettle the Mandaean community in the States. As a religious minority, they are unable to survive any longer in Iraq. For more information about the Mandaeans, I have a webpage and a series of previous posts that include details on how to write letters to Congress. It is vital that as many of us as possible write to Congress again, since they are considering legislation for Iraqi refugees that has already been passed by the Senate.
