A pentecostal Pastor, Gottfried Martens confirms that the “mobbing” of Christians in the Refugee camps has gone increasing over time. He said it was no longer rare for entire Muslim communities in refugee shelters to threaten Christians. He claimed that Christians had been forced to watch videos of beheadings, were barred from using the kitchen because they were “unclean” and had been beaten up and their crosses removed from their necks.
In these odds, he suggested that accommodation for the Muslims and Christians should be separated when he said: “In our efforts to be tolerant, which are in themselves praiseworthy, we cannot just let Christians become some kind of guinea pigs.”
