Russian family from Israel seeking asylum, persecuted! Seized Inhumanely!

A husband, Wife, and three boys aged 14, 10, and 9 were seeking asylum in Britain. They have suffered in Israel personally for their Christian faith in Jesus Christ. The father\'s car exploded when he started the engine, but managed to survive with minor injuries. His wife has been assulted numerous times and the boys suffer beatings, the youngest had some of his hair pulled out. They are not from a country on the Home office list, but suffer persecution nevertheless! They lived in Britain for 8 months, the boys attended school and knew no English. After six months, with the parents support, the boys learned English at conversation level, made many friends and attended church regularly. The boys prayed with me at school and told a little of their life in Israel. They were seized on 1st June at 7am, detained at Yarl\'s wood and put on a plane on 5th June without ever seeing a solicitor. Their evidence was not looked at and no one they knew was told until it was too late! They were treated like criminals despite never having broken the law. They were not taken seriously and their human rights were violated. They have been treated unlawfully and inhumanely. A dog would receive better treatment. This petition will be sent to the Rt Hon Dr John Reid MP at the Home Office, I hope as soon as possible.

We at St Aidan\'s primary school fully support this family and the petition and have already spoken with our local MP whom has forwarded a letter to the Rt Hon Dr John Reid MP and we are waiting for a reply. I assisted them with their English lessons and watched them change from frightened children to strong, confident, loving and friendly boys who were keen and eager to fit into our society. We have the support of our church, the asylum support team from the diosece,SEMA and many people from our community. This family would be an asset to our society.
