Life on Hold

Oslo, november 2011. In the city centre of Oslo, Norway, between Jakob’s Church and the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI), 30 young and highly educated Palestinian male refugees set up a camp 6 months ago to protest against the UDI’s rejection to their application for asylum (protection) in Norway.

They go to sleep in their tents every night fearing to be awakened by the authorities tearing down the camp. A forced return to Gaza and the West Bank emotionally equals a death sentence.

Update Oct 31, 2012 via @RefugeesPoint

Do you really know what the government in Norway is upto regarding the subject of refugees and asylum seekers? or if what they claim to be “strict but fair policies” is true? On October 10th Rune Berglund Steen published an article in Klassekampen and challenged the government to reply to him and no one did, in other words they have no answer and all what he have stated in his book are harsh solid facts about them and about their painful practices, read and share these sad facts with your friends, let’s try to change this reality for women, children and other helpless refugees:

25 asylum hard facts

Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg says that my criticism of Norwegian asylum policy is “imprecise”. Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of Justice and Ministry of Emergency Pål Lønseth does not recognize it. I challenge the government to refute a single one of the following statements as factually incorrect:

  1. 1. Under the coalition government has both Afghan, Iraqi, Somali, Chechnya, Palestine and Kosovo Serb asylum seekers rejected in violation of the guidelines from the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). The number is difficult to estimate, but it’s probably about several hundred UN stubborn refusal annually.
  2. UNHCR considers that Palestinians from the Occupied Territories in general entitled to protection. The majority are still off by a dramatic tightening in 2009.
  3. UNHCR has at one point referred to the coalition government’s practice of returning Afghan asylum seekers as “completely unacceptable”.
  4. UNHCR has sent several letters to the Norwegian authorities and asked halt forced returns to Somali capital Mogadishu (in cases where short pauses in the fighting have made possible forced expulsions).
  5. UNHCR has repeatedly protested against the coalition return practices of Iraqi asylum seekers.
  6. UNHCR has asked for caution in the treatment of the cases of Kosovo Serbs, especially families with children. Directorate of Immigration (UDI) gave in 2009-2010 to 315 rejected asylum seekers from Kosovo and stay to two. This can not be called caution.
  7. The “thorough and individual” proceedings that the government routinely refers to include not often that decision-makers ever hit asylum applicants in person. This is especially true in the appellate Immigration, but in some cases also in UDI.
  8. Also asylum seekers who have already been subjected to torture by some of the world’s worst regimes, are routinely rejected without meeting decision makers. This includes a number of women who have been raped by their country’s security police. It also includes minors who have lost close family members to the war, and minors who have been victims of abuse
  9. Torture Victims of Torture visible damage gets no help to document the damage and will often go through the entire application process without damage is documented.
  10. Asylum seekers can not expect the documents they have with them are being studied or taken into consideration in determining refugee status, even if they were to be issued example of a UN body.
  11. There is good reason to believe that Norway in several cases in recent years have forcibly torture victims to new persecution, including imprisonment and torture.
  12. The government has rejected all proposals blank to determine what happens to those who forcibly.
  13. Under the so-called Dublin partnership Norway has sent families to live on the streets in both Greece and Italy.
  14. More than 100 young people were in the period between 2009 and April 2012 put on temporary permits until they turn 18 and can be sent out, primarily in Afghanistan, Iraq and Ethiopia. 20 of these have disappeared, according to Immigration. State Secretary Pål Lønseth has stated that the treatment of these children have an “important signal” effect to other children who are considering applying for asylum in Norway. For this important signaling effect also children who have disappeared?
  15. There are children who have lived more than ten years in the asylum without a solution.
  16. Many of those living paperless in Norway, would long ago have been granted if they had sought asylum in several other European countries.
  17. When asked directly if the government thinks that something should be done for the paperless such as have lived on the streets in Norway for several years, the coalition government answered no.
  18. Employers have up to half a million dollars in fines because they have allowed undocumented work illegally in order to feed themselves and their family. This is a hundred times as much as the fine you get to put other people’s lives in danger by driving too fast in traffic.
  19. To calculate the age of unaccompanied minors seeking asylum, we use several methods that are highly controversial in the medical disciplines.
  20. Asylum seekers can now, after a red-green tightening, imprisoned because of doubts about their identity, even when it is most likely that they have spoken the truth.
  21. In Immigration Detention in Trandum outside Oslo is quite common that mentally vulnerable people, such as self-mutilators are placed in solitary confinement before the completion of the forced return.
  22. Fear of suicide among those who will forcibly is so great that in one case logged 60 suicide controls in one night. What does it say about Norwegian asylum policy that suicide risk is considered as high for rejected asylum seekers awaiting forced return?
  23. When asylum seekers to 15 years going to Trandum, stripped naked and must stand on a mirror, in line with the criminals in ordinary prisons.
  24. Asylum seekers are not criminals.
  25. An approximately 29-year-old asylum seeker who fled Trandum fall of 2010, a few months later found injured nearby. Police helicopter was on the ground 22 July last year, participated in the hunt.

Martyred By Israeli Occupation Attacks

انّا للہ و انّا الیه راجعون

May Allah Subhana wa Ta’ ala grant the Shuhada Jannatul Firdaus, and ease it for their families, loved ones and anyone around them. Allahumma Ameen ya Rabbil Alameen. ‘ Inna Lillahi wa ‘ Inna ‘ Ilayhi Raji’un, Allahu Akbar


* The list of shuhada does not display, the numerous victims of the zionist occupation which are undocumented by media. Nor it displays the victims of the “silent onslaught” due to restrictions of movement, ability to go to hospitals for treatment or life saving surgery, due to lack of medication because of the blockades and so on. For example: The Slow Motion Genocide by the Siege on Gaza only, killed 600 patients since Gaza got under Israeli Siege.

For an overview of All Israeli Massacres Palestinians go here

Neither does this list, display the avoidable mortality. A clear and statistical factual evidence, about the number of deaths due to indecent ruling by occupation forces. For even an occupier has obligations under International Laws, Geneva Convention and the Hague regulations, which it is neglecting. These circumstances, together with deliberate policies of the occupier to neglect and even deny every basic human right, severes avoidable mortality which is totally silenced by media or reporting organisations. While in the Holocaust, 1 on 6 Jewish people directly died of deliberate neglect, so if we believe the facts over 1 million due to avoidable mortality, neither should these same circumstances be ignores which are ongoing in Palestine. For this report displays a avoidable morality of at least 0,5 million Palestinians.

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all.
