This moving post was written by Diri Abramson, an Asylum Seeker from Darfur living in Israel
My name is Diri Abramson. I am from Darfur and I am 18 years old. I began studying in an Israeli high school three years ago.
I understand many Israelis are very angry at the refugees because you are receiving hundreds of people across the border every day, and you don't know where these people are coming from. It is true that this is a very complex situation. But I want you to understand that I came from a very bad situation in Darfur and that the condition of the Darfurians are getting worse and worse. If you decide that you don’t want the Darfurian refugees to stay here in Israel, then there is no other place for us to go. If you send us back to Darfur, the Sudanese will kill all of us. They kill children who are just three months old and rape and kill our sisters.
