Many Muslim apologists continue to repeat that fears of Muslim immigration have gone overboard.
In more than one case it has been a literal overboard for Christians fleeing Africa and seeking a new life in Europe. When Muslims in the boats discovered they were Christians they were thrown overboard in the middle of the Mediterranean. Of course, there is no way of knowing how many times these crimes have gone undiscovered as the crimes are only reported if someone has a guilty conscience or has been able to hide their religion and reported to European authorities.
So exactly who is going overboard about Muslims?
Italian police: Muslim migrants threw Christians overboard - CNN, April 19 2015
Rome (CNN) Muslims who were among migrants trying to get from Libya to Italy in a boat this week threw 12 fellow passengers overboard - killing them - because the 12 were Christians, Italian police said Thursday. Italian authorities have arrested 15 people on suspicion of murdering the Christians at sea, police in Palermo, Sicily, said. The original group of 105 people left Libya on Tuesday in a rubber boat. Sometime during the trip north across the Mediterranean Sea, the alleged assailants - Muslims from the Ivory Coast, Mali and Senegal - threw the 12 overboard, police said.
Even when the Muslim refugees get to Europe the persecution of Christian refugees doesn't end.
