‘They yelled at my wife and beat my child’, said the Iraqi father. Cases like this one are being reported from various parts of Germany. A young Syrian man in the German town of Giessen decided he could not stay when he heard violent threats from Islamists. ‘They shout Qur’anic verses’, he said. ‘These are words that the [Islamic State] shouts before they cut off people’s heads. I cannot stay here. I am a Christian.’
