Interview with an atheist refugee in The Netherlands:

“Muslims are spoiled children. Christians and gays are segregated”

Ayman Ghoujal, a refugee in The Netherlands, recently gave an interview with De Volkskrant about his experiences, and his surprise about how much power is given to Muslim refugees, even when they are violent.

He has spent six months in the shelter in Budel en Katwijk. He was told at arrival to ‘not be atheist too openly’.

A recap of the article:

  • “I’ve been told I had to die because I am an apostate”
  • “[Muslim refugees] are spoiled children. They will always get what they want and think everyone needs to keep their opinion in mind.”
  • “If they see you eat or drink during Ramadan they will threaten you.”
  • “I was used to their intolerance, but didn’t imagine them to have so much power in a free country as The Netherlands.”
  • “Gay people have to segregate themselves.”
  • “Atheist Muslims keep their decision quiet for their social circle […] It’s dangerous to admit it.”
  • Gay refugees are bullied, intimidated and abused.
  • Some gay men sleep in nearby woods in the cold for their safety.
  • A shelter in Nijmegen was closed after most gay refugees were assaulted.
  • Parliament now voted for an official measure to segregate Christians and Gays due to the level of violence.

7/21/2016- Syrian graphic designer Saif Aldeen Tahhan and the Revolutionary Forces of Syria Media Office recently launched a photo campaign titled “Syria Go” to raise awareness about children living in war-torn Syria. Tahhan crafted this project in light of the popularity behind Pokemon Go in order to shine a spotlight on the destruction in the country and its impact on the vulnerable over the past five years.

Some of the photos show children holding signs that say:

“I live in Kafr Nabl, the Aleppo countryside. Come catch me.”

“I am a Pokémon at Idlib in Syria, would you please come and save me?”

“I am in Kafrnabol in #Idlib countryside, come find me,” 

Tahhan further explained the inspiration behind this campaign:

“I created these images as a way to turn attention to the Syrian war, and to focus on Syrian suffering instead of Pokémon, which people are crazy about,” he explained.

He told Al Arabiya: “The world has become obsessed with this video game, so I told myself why not use it as a medium to convey our suffering.”

“Everyone is now searching for Pokémon, however, Syrians are searching for the basic necessities of life. Honestly, I don’t think the world feels for us.”

According to Save The Children, more than 250,000 children are living in depraved conditions in Syria due to the ongoing civil war.

Please keep awareness about Syria and all those affected by it in mind.
