This nun works like Mother Theresa. But she has a sharp tongue when it comes to oppression in the name of Islam and about the naiveté and indulgence of the Europeans.
It combines their struggle for the poor and oppressed with the fight against intolerance. She points out that as many as 206 verses of the Koran are directed against the “unbelievers”. 79 verses demand directly to kill the “unbelievers”.
“Europe is a continent of countries of liberality, freedom, peace, acceptance, democracy, human rights, human equality, freedom of press, freedom of speech, and freedom of religion. Whoever cannot submit to our laws should be deported if they are trying to immigrate.” – Sister Hatune
“Sister Hatune begged them to not close the door to the real refugees – the persecuted minorities, of which she once was a part of and found refuge in Germany.” – Sister Hatune
This year again, Sister Hatune wants to go to the Middle East to spend Christmas with the refugees. Hundreds of thousands of people in the war zones of Iraq and Syria, as well as in the surrounding countries, are still living in great misery. When she says celebrating Christmas, it is not about bringing toys and chocolate to the people. It’s not a symbolic gesture, it is about saving lives.
Straight talk from Sister Hatune in her speech in Auenheim, Baden Württemberg, making a very strong case for a different approach to the refugee policy. And she is very clear in her opinion about the Muslim refugees coming to Europe: We have let the wolves in, while the sheep are still abroad.
Staggering report from the UN about the desperate situation of the Yazidis, about large numbers of abused Yazidis, brought upon by the brutality of ISIS, are in urgent need of psychological care. Though the report refers to the “ISIS doctrine”, it does not mention the root of the problem: Islam. In Germany, we can ease the life of some people in desperate need of aid, but our help is limited to the funds kindly donated to us.
The Yazidis´Central Council in Germany held a memorial service to commemorate the second anniversary of the genocide against their people in Mount Sinjar, perpetrated by the Islamic State. Reminding us that the genocide is not over yet, they underlined their demands and preconditions for what they see as a safe way to return to their homeland and a life in safety. Vanquishing IS tops the list of their priorities.
In this article, published in the New York Post, Phyllis Chesler, professor emerita of psychology and women´s studies at the College Staten Island and a fellow at the Middle East Forum, makes a compelling argument for the need to establish priorities in helping victims of Muslim persecution. Concerning refugees from the Middle East, shouldn´t the Christians get priority?
All Yazidi refugees tell the same horrific stories. Hasan, who escaped Sinjar after a year under IS rule, recalls how the radicals captured his cousin: “They told him, ‘you have to convert to Islam and after that, you also have to give us your daughter.’ She was nine years old, seven men raped her on one day.”
Earlier this year, Sister Hatune Dogan and Hans Erling Jensen gathered with Dale Hurd from the biggest Christian TV station in the USA, Christian Broadcasting Network. In Stuttgart, Germany, Dale Hurd was given the opportunity to meet and interview some of our Yazidi friends – all refugees from Sinjar in Iraq.
