Can you imagine this? You're being horribly and tragically persecuted in your homeland from Muslim radicals so you flee to Europe in search of a safe haven only to find that Europe is too cowardly to protect you from persecution from Muslim radicals.
The Washington Post:
Fadi S. fled Syria to escape Islamist extremists, fearing for his life.It really doesn't matter if governments are complicit in the violence as those in the Middle East are or if they're simply too politically correct to protect Christians.
But after the Christian refugee finally arrived in Germany, he realized that he might still be in danger.
In a press conference on Monday, Fadi S. said he was shocked when he found out that Germany was not the safe heaven he had expected it to be.
Christian refugees like Fadi S. increasingly face physical and verbal assaults by other migrants and security personnel in Germany, a report released by six nongovernmental organizations has found.
"Our political leaders have not taken appropriate measures to protect the Christian minority," read a statement by Open Doors, a group that is committed to protecting persecuted Christians worldwide. "The impression that this dramatic development is being suppressed and ignored has solidified."
Although the report documents more than 200 cases of attacks -- ranging from verbal abuse to death threats and sexual assaults -- the authors estimate that as many as 40,000 Christian refugees could be affected overall.
"This is only the tip of the iceberg," Markus Rode, a member of Open Doors, was quoted as saying by German media. Germany took in more than 1 million refugees in 2015, most of them Muslims. The data was collected between February and April this year.
Rode also described the mood among many Christian refugees in the country as being defined by "fear and panic" at the moment. Eighty-six refugees out of the 231 affected individuals said they had been physically attacked.
As Edmund Burke said, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."
