Slain Israeli LGBT Counselor Nir Katz’s Boyfriend Thomas Schmidt Can Stay In The Country

Well something you did helped: Thomas Schmidt, the 27-year-old German living in Israel, whose partner Nir Katz (pictured) was among two people slain during 2009’s Tel Aviv GLBT community center shooting, will not be deported by Israeli immigration officials after all. Schmidt’s impending deportation, after living there for six years, has been rescinded by the Interior Ministry “pending further debate.”

      Cue all the haters and anti-Semites who say that EVERYTHING in the Middle East is the fault of Israel.

      @Rick Gold:

      I know, it never fails to amaze me that all the attacks from gays on here against Isreal, which absolutly isn’t perfect, are done on behalf of a country or countries where gays are arrested, killed and tortoured by the govt. there. Meanwhile, Isreal allows gays in the military, recognizes foreign gay marriages etc… I just don’t get it. It’s like taking Alabama’s side in a rights argument over Vermont.
