Christian persecution in German refugee camps

According to a case study released by Open Doors a Christian persecution group, states that Christians living in the center had faced death threats from Muslim refugees. On July 10, a number of Christian refugees found a notice in one of the rooms that said: “To all Muslims: now is the time to behead the unbelievers”. The Christians were temporarily moved to live in a local church to avoid attack.”

The report further states that an Iranian refugee reported that one night a group of men shouted: “Whoever finds an Iranian woman today may rape and kill her. Kill them all. You may kill and rape them. You can do it, everywhere. Wherever you find them, you may do that.”

“We came here to live a free life, but now we are being oppressed heavily,” the Iranian refugee reported. “It is just like the Daesh [ISIS]: we feel very oppressed… I am living her under constant pressure and cannot take it any more. Nobody is allowed to know that I am a Christian, for I am afraid that they might find out about it in Iran. I am living under constant fear and oppression.”

Another Iranian Christian refugee said that a Muslim woman had taken her Bible and tore it apart. “I fled from Iran because I want to live and now the same is happening to me here, again. I am living in fear here, in this accommodation, because again everybody is asking me: ‘Why are you a Christian?’ I fled from these attacks and now I have to live with it in such a confined space.”
