Germany: ‘R̶e̶f̶u̶g̶e̶e̶s̶ Muslims don’t leave their conflicts behind’

There are no official statistics, but aid organizations, social workers and volunteers note that ethnic, social, cultural and religious tensions are on the rise in Germany’s overcrowded refugee shelters.

…insults, threats, discrimination and blackmail against Christian asylum-seekers in particular are a regular occurrence, according to the Munich-based Central Council for Oriental Christians (ZOCD).
“I’ve heard so many reports from Christian refugees who were attacked by conservative Muslims,” said Simon Jacob, of the Central Council for Oriental Christians (ZOCD).
But that’s only the tip of the iceberg, the ZOCD board member told DW: “The number of unreported cases is much higher.”
