"razzak_shamkhi@yahoo.dk" Dato: tirsdag 21. april 2009 20.48 I have asked the Minister for Foreign Affairs for a comment on theinformation, you have given to us and whether the Danish Governmest has made orintend to make a demarche to the Iraqi government about the crimes committedagainst the Mandaean minority Best regards Mogens Lykketoft MF, Socialdemokratiet Udenrigsordfører +45 33 37 40 34 smoly@ft.dk www.lykketoft.dk ادخل على موقع نائب رئيس البرلمان الدنماركي : www.lykketoft.dk The MandaeanAssociations Union Save the Mandaeans of Iraq On Sunday the 19th of April 2009, three Mandaean jewellers were massacred by gunmen in their jewellery shops inthe Altobechi area in Baghdad Iraq . This occurred during the mid-morning hours. The assailants used pistols with silencers. Three others were badly injured inthis attack and are still in serious condition. This is a continuation ofongoing attacks against Mandaeans, including the killing of three Mandaeans intheir family’s store in a busy market in the Al-Sha'ab district of Baghdad. Inthis incident, which occurred on the 8th of September 2008, an 8 year old boy, along with his father and uncle were slaughtered together; each had severalbullets in his head. Many children have been kidnapped and many women raped withinadequate response from the police and Iraqi government. Including the abovenoted crimes, the recorded incidents against Mandaeans since 2003 stand at 167killings, 275 kidnappings, and 298 assaults and forced conversion to Islam. Someinclude more than one member of a family. The Mandaean Supreme Council in Iraqhas tried several times to bring to the attention of the Iraqi government thatthe Mandaeans as well as other minorities are continuously targeted andattacked, however their cries have been in vain and no true actions have beentaken. Out of a community of 60,000-70,000 in Iraq before 2003 only 5,000remain. 85% of our community are either refugees or are seeking refuge, and aremainly in Syria and Jordan . Mandaeans, like other religious minorities in Iraq , have not benefited from the recent supposed improvement in security. Thekillings, kidnappings, attacks, looting, and demands for ransom are continuingat an alarming rate, while the refugees, after years of living in the harshestof conditions, are still in limbo. We, the undersigned, condemn these seriouscrimes, and demand the following: 1. that an independent investigation beundertaken urgently to look into these and all other atrocities against theMandaeans; 2. that the Iraqi government act immediately to find the criminals, expose the organizations behind these crimes, and bring justice to the victims; 3. that the Iraqi Government act to establish the Minorities Security Councilunder international observation which instates a system of protection forMandaeans and all other Iraqi religious and ethnic minorities; 4. that theinternational community intervene according to international law and the UnitedNations Charter, to protect and secure the rights of the ethnic and religiousminorities as well as the other indigenous peoples of Iraq. In particular we askthe international community to take immediate steps to stop the destruction ofthe Mandaean people and their culture, as well as find a collective durablesolution to their desperate situation. The Mandaeans as a people are in dangerof extinction in their own homeland. They call out for your help. Theinternational community must stand up and save the Mandaeans of Iraq. We ask youall to help us stop these grave atrocities and to bring peace and security toall native peoples of Iraq .
