As Voice of the Persecuted has reported in the past, Christians fleeing violence are persecuted in Europe’s refugee centers.
(CBN) A new report from a coalition of Christians groups in Germany has found that 743 Christians and 10 Yezidis were victims of religiously motivated attacks in refugee camps so far this year.
The report comes from Open Doors Germany, AVC (Action on Behalf of Persecuted Christians and the Needy), IGFM (International Society for Human Rights), Aid to the Church in Need, and ZOCD (Central Council of Oriental Christians in Germany).
“The situation of Christian refugees in German refugee shelters is still unbearable. As a minority they are discriminated against, beaten up by and receive death threats from Muslim refugees and partly by the Muslim staff (security, interpreters, volunteers) on grounds of their religion,” the report says.
The Christian groups believe attacks on Christians are even more widespread than the number of reported incidents.
They call the survey, “the tip of the iceberg in regard to the number of religiously motivated attacks on Christian refugees and other religious minorities.”
“It must be assumed that there is a high number of unreported cases,” they conclude. “Effective measures for the protection of religious minorities (in refugee camps have) yet to be implemented.”
Voice of the Persecuted Note: Please pray for the safety of our brothers and sisters as they continue to be pressured while seeking safety, not only in Europe but elsewhere.

  1. Christianity and Christians are the only religion that can be systematically and consistently attacked without so much as a ripple of protest from the US, UN and – quite often – the Vatican. It wasn’t always this way! Now Jesus can be mocked in “art” and cartoons, but caricatures of Muslims or Jews are swiftly condemned. Just sayin’
