Tel Aviv refugee froze to death. ‘Go back to Africa, it’s warmer.’

An asylum seeker froze to death in a Tel Aviv park tonight.

Blogger Inter Spem et Metum collated some of the comments left on the YNET report describing other asylum seekers freezing across the city.

What was wrong with Egypt? Why did you come here?

Here’s an idea for Abdul and Yusuf – seek asylum in Gaza

I heard Africa is pretty warm right now

Go back to Sudan, it’s much warmer

Adam Yusuf and Abdul Salam. Muslim names. This is what we import. We should stop the tsunami of these wretched coreligionists of our enemies and kick them back to their own country. There’s nothing for them to find here. Only insane and delusional Israelis think they do.

There’s only one thing we should give them. A ticket to ride. No asylum, no water, no food, no jobs, no life. They should go back to their own country.

You tell me: Do we need Yusufs and Abdul Salams here?

Egypt is warm! Go back there and from there to Africa.

Let them seek help from the UN – they’re taking care of the Palestinians and they’ll take care of them.

What’s the big problem, let the Left take care of 200 people. Is it that complicated?

NGO director – why don’t you take some infiltrators to your own place? Take care of them at your expense and don’t give advice to the state on what to do. You’re such a bleeding heart it’s disgusting.

There’s no room. They are Muslims let them go to the Arab states, there’s a Spring of Nations happening there now and it’s nice and warm. Sent from my mobile.

Go back to Sudan. Cheers.

Asylum seekers? Infiltrators. Let the reporter take in six or seven of them.

If they didn’t come here, they wouldn’t be in this condition.

Let them go to the New Israel Fund, they are loaded.

Deport all those who assists border trespassers

Tel Aviv too cold for them? Africa’s much warmer.

Why are they releasing them into Tel Aviv? Why not into Gaza?

I heard there are a few houses recently vacated in Darfur and they have blankets too you’re welcome to move.

Help the Sudanese only after they sign a document recognising a Jewish and Democratic Israel.

Interspem notes:

“Writing right now would be unbearable. So I’m merely quoting. When your grandkids ask you, you’ll have something to recall.”


*Update: The report on the asylum seekers’ death came from several respected and highly reliable asylum rights activists. The man’s identity now appears to be unclear. However, the comments that are the subject of the post refer specifically to a story describing freezing asylum seekers across the the city, and their venality remains standing.
