Syrian Refugees Complain About Living Conditions


Syrian refugees who have been housed and protected by the Swedish taxpayers, are speaking out about their increasing dissatisfaction with their accommodations.

One Syrian man even accused the countries residents of wanting to kill him and his fellow ‘refugees’, and another said he wanted a house to live in, not just an apartment.  

Breitbart reported on an opinion piece published by Sweden’s public broadcaster, in which refugee Mohammad Jumaa wrote, “You have made our lives miserable.”

Complaining how migrants have waited over a year for “a good and natural life,” he said, “We are people, not animals that only need to eat and sleep!”

Mohammed went on to say, “I can’t believe this is in Sweden! Why did you open your doors to us refugees, if you can’t help us to live a dignified, respectful and fulfilled life?”

He expressed that Sweden only pretends to care about human rights and that the country is “forcing” the Syrian refugees to “wait in housing with poor conditions.”

“Do not tell me that you have so many refugees in Sweden. I know that. But I do not understand why you want to kill us a second time. This waiting process is the same as killing us. Waiting is the same as dying and it leads to a lot of stress and a lot of bad feelings,” Mohammed explained.

Adding that many refugees feel the same as he does, Mohammed wrote, “I am an honorable and honest man. Many refugees curse the day they came here.”

Another Syrian refugee, Mahmoud, had similar complaints. “I want a house,” he said in an interview with a Swedish radio station.

Lamenting that the living conditions were impeding his ability to find a girlfriend, he said, “I’m 25 years old and have not had a girlfriend before. I’m still a virgin. I’m looking for a girlfriend, I’m looking for a wife. But this is impossible, how can I be able to have a life in this room?”

Mahmoud added, “I had very high hopes of getting my own private house. And then they give me this apartment. It’s like a refugee camp. What is the difference?”

Studio One reporter, Katarina Gunnarsson reiterated to a dissatisfied Mahmoud, that the accommodations paid for by taxpayers “looks like a hotel room”, but he had a greater idea of what his life in Sweden should have been.

“I came to Sweden and had high hopes of creating a life here. But after living here for a year and eight months, I started to lose hope,” he responded.

Refugees living in the same Norrtälje apartment block as Mahmoud protested against the newly built housing in August. As the Syrian refugees expected to be given their own apartment, rather than sharing a kitchen with other refugees, nearly half of the building’s residents joined in the demonstration.

According to a spokesman for the Syrians, the dissatisfying living conditions left some of the refugees experiencing depression and even suicidal thoughts.
