A 50-year-old woman who was reading a Bible at a refugee camp in Austria was attacked by a 22-year-old Afghan refugee.
The unidentified man was reportedly irritated that he could hear the woman reading the Bible. Austrian news outlet The Local reported that the man ran into the kitchen, grabbed a knife and attempted to stab the woman, who was also not named.
The woman’s thick winter coat was the only thing that prevented the man from cutting her.
However, she injured her ear when she fell backwards as a result of the attack, reported the U.K. Daily Mail.
The attack took place in Timelkam in Voecklamarkt, in northwestern Austria.
The woman had reportedly been invited to discuss the Bible at the camp by Christians who happened to be staying there.
The Local reported that the man told police he overreacted because he was suffering from “personal problems.”
Authorities took the man into custody, and he was taken to Wels Prison in Upper Austria. It was not immediately known if the man had been charged with any crime.
This woman was lucky she wasn’t seriously injured in this attack, because it seemed like the man had every intention of hurting her, as male Muslim refugees have been known to do with women at their mercy.
The fact that this refugee used personal problems as an excuse for attacking the woman does not make it OK.
Europe is struggling with a massive crisis with refugees because of their open-arms policy, and the last thing we want to do is follow in their footsteps.
The more incidents like this occur, the more it becomes apparent that we need to establish a screening process that prevents such troubled refugees from entering our country. We do not need our citizens being attacked for reading Bibles, or for anything else.
