Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Trying to break the Postillon's monopoly on this sort of stuff, I see.

It won't happen in Israel. The government has refused requests by "infiltrators" (Hebrew for asylum seekers) to convert to Judaism.

That's a different issue though. Israel ties residency rights to Judaism. The Krone claims the equivalent was true in Germany and Norway, which is nonsense, of course. Apparently the readers of that quality paper find this credible, and that is depressing.
Hunderte Moslems konvertieren zum Christentum - In Berliner Kirche - Welt - krone.at
Der Grund, obwohl nicht offen ausgesprochen, ist klar: Gläubige Christen haben bei den Behörden bessere Chancen, als Flüchtlinge anerkannt zu werden. Fanatische Moslems müssen warten.

They have never heard of humanitarian law, obviously. Recognition as refugee depends on whether people are persecuted in their own countries. The reason of this persecution may well be their religious affiliation, but that is the only role religion plays here. A conversion to increase the chance of getting asylum might make sense for citizens of countries that punish leaving Islam (officially or socially), but then, so would openly embrace atheism.  

And that's the crowd that knows for sure what a threat to western civilisation (if only) these "swarms" of refugees are.

Another amusing detail is that the Krone tells their readers that baptism constituted a change of name. Mohammed enters the church, is baptized, and leaves as Martin, they "report". What?!
