DISCRIMINATED AGAINST – AT HOME, AS Refugee, AND NOW IN GERMANY
Here is, what happened to Sister Hatune just a few days ago: one of her protégés in Germany calls for her help, because there is a brawl going on in a refugee house.
Georgios is a 22 year old male, a Greek- orthodox Christian from Syria. He came with a special program to Germany, for people that were persecuted and traumatized by the Islamic State (IS). Sister Hatune helped him in Syria to get into the program and has held regular contact to him ever since.
YOU ARE CHRISTIAN – YOU ARE MY SERVANT
Georgios is coming home late at night to his home, when he is bullied by a drunken 24 year old man from Lebanon: “come on get me another beer. You are Christian, you are my servant.” After Georgios refuses, the situation escalates, the Lebanese man rants: “You heretic” … “I will f*** your sister”, finally he throws an empty beer bottle, Georgios can fend it off with his arm, getting a wound on his elbow. When the police arrive, Sister Hatune goes into the house, also to help the policemen with translation. The Lebanese is trying to persuade a man from Syria to give testimony against Georgios, as if he had started the brawl. The Syrian declines and the Lebanese explodes: “You are a heretic too, because You support the heretics.” A heavy brawl ensues between the two, and the policemen can hardly separate them.
BACK TO IRAQ, THE CAMP WAS BETTER OVER THERE
Things like this happen every day in refugee homes in Germany and all over Europe. Members of religious minorities are subjected to bullying, humiliation and violence on a regular basis.
The authorities are overwhelmed by this problem, or even do not want to identify it at all. In some of the refugee houses and camps, Christians and Yazidis have own areas with extra security, but even there are problems. Recently, the media reported about refugees going back in large numbers to Iraq. They say it was better in the camps over there. For many months, so they say, they had been neglected, without therapy and a chance to work. http://www.reuters.com/article/us-europe-migrants-germany-iraqis-idUSKCN0V52GG
SOCIAL CONFLICTS IMPORTED
All this is happening since quite a long time, and the number of offenses rises with the number of refugees. Some weeks ago, it was impossible to speak about this in Germany – to bear the bad news made you a xenophobe, racist, even Nazi. The mass sexual harassments in Cologne and many other German cities on new year’s eve by migrant gangs changed a lot. Now even the state controlled media report about it. It is not possible to hide the fact anymore, that Europe, especially Germany and Sweden, have imported social conflicts of the refugee’s home countries. And this is about deep-rooted structural problems.
THE CULTURAL CONSTANT OF A CERTAIN KIND OF VIOLENCE
There is a lot of crime in and around the refugee homes, drug dealing, gang organized theft, sexual harassment, prostitution, racketeering. And naturally many brawls, that are executed with fists, clubs, knives, even guns. Some of them with dozens, even hundreds of men. The perpetrators come from the Middle East, northern and middle Africa and the Balkans. Generally spoken, very few of the offenders come from Iraq and Syria. These people are sick and tired of crime and fighting.
But the offenses against Christians and Yazidis have a cultural constant: the perpetrators are all Sunni Muslims and come from northern Africa and the Middle East. These people are accustomed being the ruling class over minorities. Their aggression is directed against all unbelievers, even Shia and Alevite Muslims, because they are seen inferior also. And ‘naturally’ against homosexuals and apostates, people who have left Islam, because both of this is strictly forbidden.
WARDENS AGAINST REFUGEES
There are even cases, where wardens have beaten up Christians in refugee homes. The wardens were Sunni Muslims and sided with the ‘fellow’, though violent Sunni dwellers. The situation in the homes in Berlin is very critical, there seems to be a climate of Sharia. The rules of the houses are Islamic laws, not German laws. To have a Bible is haram, forbidden.
The link exists only in German language.
ALL OVER EUROPE
Cases like these are all over Europe, and the list of atrocities is getting longer every day. Everywhere it gets clear, that the bulk of refugees are not highly educated, skilled workers, doctors and engineers, as politics like to sell the issue to their own populations, but rather are people, who belonged to the lower class in their home countries already, who are rather uneducated, without expectations of social rise. Here they try to rise over their cohabitants, whom they see as lower in class. http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/260531/christians-persecuted-muslims-even-west-raymond-ibrahim.
EVER SINCE A THOUSAND YEARS
This is nothing new for Christians and Yazidis, they live under these circumstances for a long time. Sister Hatune knows dozens of cruel stories of minorities discriminated against in their home countries. Her own family is coined by this. It started long before the actual war, long before there was a Middle East. It all began, when Mohamad’s followers conquered the region in the 7th century. An area, that saw, over thousands of years, various people, religions and cultures, and was religiously and politically cleansed. Now, there is a Sunni majority having a natural claim to supremacy, because it was taught to them for a thousand years: “Now you are the best community which has been raised up for the guidance of mankind: you enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allah. Had these people of the Book (Jews and Christians) also believed, it would have surely been better for them.” This verse of the Quran (3, 110) is common sense to every Muslim. A claim being close to perfection: right now in Iraq and Syria, IS is killing and destroying some of the oldest Christian communities in the world. The West lets it happen. http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/260211/wake-muslim-persecution-christians-abetted-west-raymond-ibrahim.
Because of that, it is Sister Hatune’s and her Foundation’s true conviction, that the members of the religious minorities are the true refugees here, and they are the ones in need of special care and protection.
IT GOES ON AND ON
For the Christians and Yazidis, the persecution doesn’t end with the war in their villages, the killing of their relatives, the rape of their girls, the destruction of their houses and the deprivation of their property. It goes on and on. They get mistreated in the refugee camps, they get less food, less aid, less medical help. Sister Hatune just visited a camp, where Yazidis are separated from the rest, they must beg for food and aid, whereas the Muslim refugees have more than they need and are selling the excess to other refugees. The camp is run by the refugee organization of the United Nations, UNHCR. The workers there are all Sunni Muslims. http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/7284/turkey-christian-refugees
NO CHANCE TO FLEE
Outside the official camps, where almost all of the Christian and Yazidi refugees live, the situation is even worse. Here they are all on their own, struggling for their survival. Because of that, so few of them make it to Europe – they have no money to go there. If they attempt to do it, they are exposed to threats on the way. On boats, many Christians and Yazidis have been thrown into the sea. For the majority on the boats – Sunni Muslims, including the armed traffickers – they are unbelievers, only a burden and not worthy to be saved. On other routes too, in trains, even planes, the minorities are again and again subjected to severe violence.
FINALLY, EUROPE – AND STILL NOT SAFE
If they make it to Europe, all they hope is to be redeemed from violence and persecution. But even there it doesn’t stop. Many report to Sister Hatune, that their everyday life is tainted by problems: Yazidi girls, that cannot leave their houses without a male escort, because it is too dangerous. In and around the asylums they are exposed to constant harassment and humiliation by young Muslim men. So they feel alone and locked. Ayas, a 17-year-old Christian from Syria, who was forced to fight and kill for IS over six months, told Hatune, that while he was taking the bus to school, he was surrounded by five Sunni Moslems with long beards. Ayas believes, they were Salafists. He heard their conversation about the Kafirs, the dirty, unbelieving Germans. After that, he suffered an attack of fear and was unable to go to school. He thought: Why are these people here? Why are they allowed to carry on, where they left after the war?
WHO IS ON EUROPE’S GUEST LIST: EVERYBODY
Those are questions, that the politicians in Europe are unable to answer to, and that the lapdog media are not willing to ask. One cannot blame the Muslims, for trying to perform their engrained cultural characteristics also in Europe. Especially if one takes into account, that they have been invited – refugees welcome! But the gap between the crude reality of immigration and the decreed welcome culture has grown too big to be bridged by therapeutic courses and brochures, like it’s widely done in Germany these days: dear refugees, please do not grope our girls! A state, a continent, that welcomes everyone, does not want to see any differences. The politicians have to go on taking two blind eyes about the biggest structural problem of the refugee crisis: the elephant in the room, that nobody likes to talk about: the stunning religion out of the 7th century and their busting prophet. It continues to be the raison d’état, that Islam is a religion of peace and so belongs to Germany or Europe.
THE TRUE FAILURE
As long as this is preached, it will remain the true failure of the European elites in politics, media and culture, to take care of the truly needy, to provide security, shelter and aid to the persecuted minorities. Either so in the war region in the Middle East, or so that they can find a new home in Europe. For that, the European authorities are lacking the means, but most of all the will.
Since a long time, Hatune Foundation is calling for a special treatment of the religious minorities in the refugee camps, for example by establishing special protected areas, or by picking aides and wardens from the same cultural background. To achieve this, Hatune Foundation is planning a seminar, to develop strategies how to build up awareness and pressure upon the policy makers. We will keep You, dear reader, informed about this.
