Islamic Outreach, Part LXXXIII

From an earlier post on this blog:

Pope Francis spoke to the diplomatic corps and amongst other things, said, "Hence it is important to intensify dialogue among the various religions, and I am thinking particularly of dialogue with Islam."


Middle Eastern Christians in refugee camps in Germany are being mercilessly harassed by Muslim refugees, according to Father Superior Hegumen Daniel at the St. George the Victorious Monastery in Gotschendorf.
According to Daniel:
Christian refugees from Syria, Eritrea and other countries are exposed to humiliation, manhunt and brutal harassment at the camps for refugees by Muslim neighbors. This also relates to the Yazidi religious minority. The cases when humiliation comes to injuries and threats of death are frequent.”
Those who converted from Islam to Christianity are special targets:
“According to the Islamic tradition, they should be punished, because they fell apart from Islam. They are exposed to a tough pressure and should be afraid of their life, because ‘renegades’ lose any right for it for radical Muslims.”
