    well Koka you are no 30 1 who seeks asylum in a country you consider "terrible" aha!! read what happens to folks who are found out in your community and probably throughout Mid east A number of gay Palestinian men are risking their lives to cross the border into Israel, claiming they feel safer among Israelis than their own people. According to some estimates, there are now 300 gay Palestinian men secretly living and working in Israel. Their willingness to live there - despite the risk of being detained and deported as a security threat - is due to Palestinian attitudes towards gay men, they claim. One 22-year-old gay man who fled from Gaza into Israel four years ago told BBC World Service's Outlook programme he was almost killed when his family found out about his sexuality. He says that when he was 18, he was caught with his boyfriend by his brother. "[My brother] brought a stick and hit us," he said. "He tied us up with an iron rope and went to call my dad, and tell my partner's. Then he came back and hit us again." http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/3211772.stm
