    This includes the murder of an Afghan by a compatriot after converting to Christianity in early May in Prien am Chiemsee.

    In 14 other cases, “anti-Christian crimes” were committed between asylum seekers. The BKA registered nine injuries and a case of arson. In about a quarter of cases, Christian symbols and churches were targets of attacks.

    In view of the numbers, Bavaria’s Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann (CSU) demanded that asylum seekers “integrate without any ifs and buts” into the Christian-Western value culture.

    “If you want to live here, you have to say goodbye to an anti-Christian sentiment,” Herrmann told the newspapers of the Funke Media Group. Otherwise they were simply “not welcome in our country”. That was not a mere wish for refugees, “but a mandatory demand”.

    A member of the Union faction in the Bundestag, Ansgar Heveling, expressed satisfaction that now “clarity on the extent” of the abuses exists.

    He called the number of almost 100 criminal offenses “alarming”. It is important to do everything to protect Christians and Christian institutions. “Here I see a special responsibility of our state,” emphasized Heveling.

    In 2016, a study of nearly 800 migrants from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Eritrea in the German state of Bavaria was conducted by a German think tank, the Hanns Seidel Foundation. This study showed that anti-Western beliefs were widespread among the migrants interviewed.

    According to a 2014 study of Moroccan and Turkish Muslims in Germany, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria and Sweden, an average of almost 60 percent of Muslims believed that they should return to the roots of Islam and 65 percent said that Sharia is more important to them than the laws of the country in which they reside.

    Both studies are supported by European intelligence reports. In Germany, intelligence agencies warned in 2015 that, “We are importing Islamic extremism, Arab anti-Semitism, national and ethnic conflicts of other peoples, as well as a different understanding of society and law.” Four major German security agencies agreed that “German security agencies… will not be in the position to solve these imported security problems and thereby the arising reactions from Germany’s population.”
