"Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks; At length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens. Thus (are ye commanded): but if it had been Allah's Will, He could certainly have exacted retribution from them (Himself); but (He lets you fight) in order to test you, some with others. But those who are slain in the Way of Allah,- He will never let their deeds be lost." (Yusuf Ali translation).
Open Doors provides some startling information in this article. Given the tiny percentage of Christians and Yazidis brought in as migrants, the numbers assaulted must represent a very high proportion of their total numbers. As I don't have TV am unable to verify if the reality of life for non-Muslims in the refugee camps will make the 6 o'clock news this week.
But I think I can guess.
CHRISTIAN refugees were forced to flee a migrant camp in Germany after Muslim asylum seekers threatened them with “beheading” because they are “unbelievers”.By Rebecca Perring
Christians living in a migrant centre in Rotenburg, central Germany, are facing death threats and ‘sentencing’ by unofficial Sharia council, according to a shocking study released by the Christian persecution charity.
In one horrifying case, a Christian migrant returned from church to find a notice in one of the rooms saying: “To all Muslims: now is the time to behead the unbelievers.”
Christians were forced to flee the camp in a desperate bid to avoid an attack, according to research by Open Doors.
One Iranian recalled the terrifying moment she heard a group of men shouting: “Whoever finds an Iranian woman today may rape and killer her. Kill them all.
“You may kill and rape them. You can do it, everywhere. Wherever you find them, you may do that.”The panicked woman compared her life to living under the barbaric Islamic State (ISIS).
She added: “We came here to live a free life, but now were are being oppressed heavily. “It’s just like the Daesh. We feel very oppressed. I am now living under constant pressure and cannot take it any more.
“Nobody is allowed to know that I am 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 claims a Muslim woman took her Bible and tore it in to shreds. She said: “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.
While another says she was threatened by Muslim asylum seekers who told her: “We are going to kill you. You are Christian and you have left your religion.”
Open Doors reported 32 cases of religiously-motivated attacks in Rotenburg among migrants from Iran, Syria, Eritrea and Iraq. They say a total of 743 Christians and 10 Yazidis were victims of religious motivated attacks in migrant camps between February and September 2016.
