More than 1.5 million migrants have entered Germany this year and last, among them Christians and other minorities fleeing ISIS and other extremist Muslim violence in Iraq and Syria.

But just when they thought they’d escaped harassment by Muslim extremists, some found it again, in Germany.

Open Doors Germany, a Christian organization, says it interviewed 200 Christian migrants from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan this year, and that 88 percent of them reported being targeted by other migrants because of their religion. Most people reported facing insults, but some reported physical attacks and even some death threats, the organization says.

That can't be. THese migrants only want to get away from their terrible circumstances not spread their religious beliefs elsewhere forcefully.
