From daily mail came this report that, no fewer than Hundreds of, mostly Iranian and Afghan asylum seekers have converted to Christianity upon getting to Germany,at the evangelical Trinity Church in a leafy Berlin neighbourhood. LIke Mohammed Ali Zonoobi, most say true belief prompted their embrace of Christianity. Germany expected about 2,500 refugees to arrive in the country by early afternoon today after some 20,000 came in over the weekend.
Chancellor Angela Merkel today described the influx as 'breathtaking' and said it would change the make-up of country forever.
She said: 'What we are experiencing now is something that will occupy and change our country in coming years.'
She said Germany will ensure that those who need protection receive it, but that those who stand no chance of getting asylum will have to return to their homes swiftly.
But there's no overlooking the fact that the decision will also greatly boost their chances of winning asylum by allowing them to claim they would face persecution if sent home.
Germany pledged an extra €6billion Monday to help the record numbers of desperate refugees crossing its borders
