Is this syntax the same as the rest of your rules?  In particular, I'm
looking at "RH-Firewall-1-INPUT".

Probably nobody, until you post the list the rest of your rules.

I think you're also missing a "COMMIT" after your rule.  And I suspect
you should stop the iptables service before directly fiddling with its
configuration file (that rather depends on when, and if, it saves the
current rule set, when you tell it to restart).
