    I could not post video. This was the best I could do.

    I don't know, JWs have never had a big reputation for converting "rice Chrisrians". Frankly they're too cheap for that.

    I can't see any Muslims converting. Not only are they shunned but they can also be killed, they loose everything. It definitely worse then jw shunning.

    I don't think that boast would come from JW.org because it would be too obvious the refugees are trying to find ways to improve getting permanent residence. This is more like a boast from individual witnesses.

    Religion loves misery. If those people are separated from their homeland and are suffering from severe psychological trauma then they are ripe for conversion.

    It's all fun and games until they go jihadi and start blowing shit up.

    But seriously, religion preys on misery and VI said - anyone fleeing a war zone is ripe-pickings for religion.

    steve2, did you not watch the video? It's clearly not a boast from JWs or WTS.

    "If you want to help me, you should not help based on religion."

    I hope that burns as deeply as it should. Truly spoken.

    JWs have always targeted the vulnerable in society. They see this as an easy way to increase the JW membership.

    I live in an European country where there are a lot of refugees and immigrants coming from Arab and African countries and I do know brothers are visiting them in the hostels and other facilities and picking them by car to take them to the meetings in English and French speaking congregations as some of them cannot speak the local language of the country.

    Once you speak with them, they don't know exactly where they are or what to expect from "the church" (as some brothers even use this term to be seen as a "just another Christian denomination").

    Usually when those studies can see by themselves no material help is provided by the congregations, they stop coming. But then, there are new arrivals and the process continues.

    I also know some refugees and immigrants pretend to have some degree of interest in the religion but they want to visit congregations in the local language and to study with a brother in that language to have someone that could teach them. At first, some brothers did it but it's a widespread rumor that it happens and now Elders insist to them they have to study in English or French and attend meeting in those languages.

    More piss-poor behaviour from the JWs.

    These refugees need food, water, shelter plus basic amenities. Good education would also be important.

    What they definitely don't need is more religion - some, if not all, are fleeing religion in the first place.
