Syrian Christians Flee Asylum in Sweden Amid Harassment From Muslims Who Force Them to Hide Their Crosses
by Vincent Funaro
Syrian Christian refugees living in Sweden say they were forced out of their asylum house by Muslim refugees who demanded they hide their crosses and banned them from using communal areas in the home they shared.
"They dared not stay. The atmosphere became too intimidating. And they got no help," said a Swedish government migration agency rep responsible for the center they were staying in to Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter. "They chose themselves to organize [a] new address and moved away without our participation because they felt a discomfort."
The Christians, comprised of two families, were seeking asylum after fleeing from the Islamic State in Syria. And the place they were staying at housed around 80 people with many being Syrian Muslims.
