Mandaean Refugee Petition

Most readers will know that I’m turning part of my research attention to the Mandaeans. While I’ll be working mainly on their ancient texts, the Mandaeans are still around today, and as many of you are aware, their existence is threatened by the recent upheavals in their traditional homeland, Iraq.

April DeConick shared a link to a petition on her blog. The petition asks that the Mandaeans be granted refugee status. I’m sharing the link here to increase the number of people who may become aware of, and take action on, this important issue.

At this site, you will find http://www.thepetitionsite.com/petition/852950474. In order to see the petition, you will have to click the link marked “letter,” which I admit is rather small and easy to miss. I urge you to sign the petition and to spread the word to others to do likewise. Thank you very much.
