Germany: some Christian refugees face threats from Muslims

Catholic World News - August 12, 2014

Syrian and Iraqi Christians who have sought asylum in Germany have been faced threats from Muslims fellow residents at a Munich home for asylum seekers, according to a report from Bayerischer Rundfunk (Bavarian Broadcasting).

“We were watching our children day and night,” said one Syrian Christian. “Several times they were beating them. We were afraid to lose our temper and react to the provocations and cause even more problems.”

Bavarian Broadcasting reported that one Iraqi Christian family that had taken refuge in rural Bavaria was threatened repeatedly over a period of months. The family members were so frightened that they returned to Mosul. The city was subsequently invaded by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.
