Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A fantastic but tragic diary, deserving of the widest possible dissemination. I hope it will be posted in a lot of other forums, so that as many people as possible can contemplate how beauty is destroyed by greed. The Mandaean situation could be the subject for a TV documentary, or their history and beliefs, and destruction could be a movie with a far more powerful and relevant messsage than 'Apocolypta'.

While I do not believe myself in god, an afterlife etc, that does not mean that I disrespect the right of others to do so - especially such an ancient, beautiful, humane and caring belief set.

You can't be me, I'm taken
