Mandaean Human Rights

One of the most saddening reports to come out of Iraq is the story of the Mandaeans, a gnostic sect that existed at the time of the birth of Christianity and sheds interesting light on the milieu in which the Christian faith was born. Islamic fundamentalists in Iraq are denying this monotheistic sect even the limited protection of Dhimmi status, which would accord them religious freedom with subordinate status. They do not accept converts at all. They present no threat whatsoever to any other group in Iraq. I believe that they deserve priority in allocating American immigration resources.
