I’ll have to admit ignorance to the existence of the Sabian Mandaeans, Iraq’s oldest religious group whose religion is pacifict, being followers of Adam, Noah and John the Baptist. According to the BEEB:
“They claim that Islamic extremists in Iraq are trying to wipe them out through forced conversions, rape and murder.”
This is just one more minority religious group facing death or expulsion from their traditional homeland, due to Muslim extremism. Christians and Jews have been forced out from many of their tradtional areas in the Muslim/Arab world, so it doesn’t surprise that this little known group is facing the same violent agenda as the others.
