German broadcaster Welt24 reports, that a few days ago, German politician Wolfgang Bosbach met a Christian Iraqi family in Nordrhein-Westphalia (his constituency), who had fled their country because of Islamic violence and recently applied for asylum in Germany…but were rejected by a German Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) employee in an Islamic headscarf.
Gatestone EU Last year, 97.000 Iraqis submitted an application for asylum in Germany. In January, 64.6% of Iraqi asylum applications were successful. The family that Bosbach met however, was rejected, and they told him they felt they were at a disadvantage because of the official who handled their case. When ten thousand refugees are let in and only 68 are Christian it is apparent that prejudice is at work.
Iraqi Christians have been forced out of their homes by ISIS, and many have died rather than agree to forced conversions to Islam.
Bosbach said, “I understand the applicants’ concern that their application may not have been decided upon solely on objective and prejudice-free considerations, (…) when they are Christians telling a headscarf-wearing Muslima that they have suffered persecution by Muslims.”
And Bosbach is of the opinion that this fear “is not entirely ungrounded. Therefore, I cannot understand, why only Muslims in BAMF get to decide whether or not Christians, who fled from radical Muslims, get the right to stay in the Federal Republic of Germany.”
When asked to comment, a spokesperson for BAMF seemed to miss the point when she declared that: “Constitutionally, women are allowed to wear a headscarf in their place of work, and the employer can only limit that right when there are objective grounds to do so, for example, health and safety issues, when it is detrimental to the peace in the working environment etc.”…
