Jews in Europe have been urged to move to Israel after a Jewish man was killed in an attack outside Copenhagen’s main synagogue on Sunday.
The call was made by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday.
He said: “Israel is your home. We are preparing and calling for the absorption of mass immigration from Europe”.
There were two fatal shootings in the normally peaceful Danish capital on the weekend and two police officers were killed in one of the shootings.
In the first attack on Saturday a 55-year-old man was killed at a panel discussion about Islam and free speech attended by a Swedish cartoonist behind controversial caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed.
Netanyahu also said:“Extremist Islamic terrorism has struck Europe again… Jews have been murdered again on European soil only because they were Jews.
“To the Jews of Europe and to the Jews of the world I say that Israel is waiting for you with open arms”
He added that his government was to adopt a $45 million plan “to encourage the absorption of immigrants from France, Belgium and Ukraine”.
