Ervin Kohn, head of the Jewish community in Oslo said on Monday to the Norwegian daily Dagbladet, “This could just have easily happened in Norway. We do not feel safe.”
He added that the Jewish community is a vulnerable group and would like to see permanent police protection at its institutions.
Eleven serious anti-Semitic incidents were recorded in Norway last month. This included several death threats made against Norwegian Jews.
Hanne Nabintu Herland is a Norwegian author whose new book Respekt tops the Norwegian best-seller book list.
In an interview for Arutz Sheva with Israeli anti-Semitism expert Manfred Gerstenfeld, Herland called Norway “the most anti-Semitic country in the Western world.”
