Fire highlights underlying issue of expanding conflict between Muslim migrants.
A large exhibition hall, normally used for storage, was being used as temporary housing for about 280 middle eastern refugees. They burnt it to the ground Tuesday, reportedly because they were angry that the guards did not wake them in time for their Ramadan breakfast. Under the Islamic tradition, during Ramadan they must fast between sunrise to sunset, so sleeping-in means they get no food all day until after dark that night.
Some of the migrants claim the breakfast slight was intentional, because of conflict with the Iranians hired to guard them. Authorities arrested six men who were responsible for setting the blaze, who are from Morocco, Algeria, Syria and Iraq. Some of the migrants said the blaze was set “because we want to get away from here, away from the Iranian guards.” Some recorded it with their cell phones, even bragging about setting the fire.
A whole new set of problems have arisen for Germany, in finding security and translators for the asylum centers. Giving one sect power and authority over others has led to widespread violence and abuse and infighting between them. Christian migrants especially are often abused and beaten by the Iranian guards, with one nearly beaten to death recently. The situation has placed many migrants right back under the authority of those they were fleeing from in the first place, reports Breitbart News. Migrating to Europe has not stopped the fighting between different Islamic sects – it is just now occurring in another country.
