Germany turns blind eye as Christian migrants forced to hide Bibles amid death threats from Muslims

by WorldTribune Staff, August 12, 2016

Christian asylum seekers who are residing in Germany’s migrant housing facilities regularly receive death threats from Muslim refugees in the camps.

“Bibles and crucifixes are kept hidden, children are shielded and all services must be held without the rest of the population knowing,” according to a report by Catholic Online.

One Christian refugee said: “I came to Germany after fleeing my own country in the hope my life would be safer in the face of growing dangers. But in Germany I’ve been threatened more.”

Germany has taken in over 1 million refugees, most of them Arab Muslims, since last year.

The persecution of Christians on German soil has Bundestag member Erika Steinbach and Iranian-born pastor Mahin Mousapour livid.

Steinbach said Germany’s “misconceived tolerance” is what led to an overly compassionate welcome extended to Muslims.

Steinbach believes the best way to battle the recurring incidents of religious persecution are to deport all Muslims who insist on attacking or openly insulting Christian migrants.

Steinbach brought her point up to the European Union and asked them to erect refugee camps outside the housing borders where migrants would be forced to “stay until the war is over then go back home.”

According to Breitbart, Mousapour said that “toys of Christian children are being destroyed, Christian asylum seekers are told not only to wash their dishes after eating but also that they must clean the entire kitchen as it would otherwise be ‘unclean.’ Many Muslim asylum seekers call all Christians unclean.”

Mousapour added: “We are here in Germany, in a Christian country. We must not allow others to change that.”

Some Christians who no longer live in the migrant camps have been threatened on the streets, Catholic Online reported.

Open Doors, an organization which tracks the persecution of Christians worldwide, said that “despite increased reports about this problem by the media, charities, human rights organizations, church leaders and Christian organizations, German authorities and politicians have hardly ever launched an investigation.

“Instead, we believe that incidents are deliberately downplayed and even covered up….Even in police stations, religiously motivated attacks on Christian refugees are not documented as such.”
