Jew hatred Author and journalist Marte Michelet believe that we must do everything we can to protect the Jewish minority in Norway.
– It is very important that the Norwegian society understand how vulnerable the Jews in our country. They have always been few and are very cautious, says Marte Michelet to dagen.

She recently published the critically acclaimed book “The greatest crime. Victims and perpetrators in the Norwegian Holocaust. “Michelet does not mince words when she describes Norway’s treatment of the Jews during the war.

– There is no other crime committed in Norway that can be compared with the total of 765 Jews killed in the Holocaust Norwegian – everything from a baby of six weeks and an old man of 82 years,

hat can be compared with the total of 765 Jews killed in the Holocaust Norwegian – everything from a baby of six weeks and an old man of 82 years, the writer recently told our newspaper.

The situation today
Michelet now come with a warning also applies to the Norwegian Jews’ situation in our own time.

– Jews have a long history of experience as undesired in Norway, and the Jewish minority need to feel that they have the greater Norwegian community supporting. Not only because of our historical heritage to the Jews, but because they have a natural right to be in Norway, says Marte Michele

The Protocols of the Elders of Zion

When it comes to conditions in this country, as she points out that the leader of the English Defence League in Sogn og Fjordane not long ago ordered a new release of the false publication “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.”

– We do not know who the anti-Semites in Norway are, and to my relief the HL-center is currently monitoring attitudes. Sometimes we get the impression that it made a link between anti-Semitism in Norway and the Muslim minority in our country. But we have no studies that tell something about this relationship, says Marte Michelet.

She added that the study “Anti-Semitism in Norway,” as HL Center published in May 2012, didn’t have any Muslim respondents.

ethnic Norwegians
– Those surveyed said that they dont want to have a Jewish neighbor or a Jew in the family, ethnic Norwegians. We make it all too easy for ourselves if we think that anti-Semitism is imported and has nothing to do with us. Therefore we can not toe our hands. It is very important that we are honest about the attitudes that exist in the edges of the formed Norwegian society, for here sits negative attitudes towards Jews in the walls, says Marte Mic it wil not have a Jewish neighbor or a Jew in the family, ethnic Norwegians.

Growing Anti-Semitism
She understands that the Jews in Europe are more scared now than they have been for many decades, because among other things, experiencing attacks against synagogues and other Jewish institutions.

– Of course it strikes fear in you if you fear being blown up if you go to worship. The fear we must take seriously, says the author, who is concerned about a growing anti-Semitism in Europe.

Agree with Michelet
Board Ervin Kohn of the Jewish community in Oslo would agree to what is revealed in the interview with Michelet.

– She comes with an insightful description. While there is a small Jewish minority in Norway, so it is also vulnerable. But it is important to emphasize that most of Norway are not anti-Semites, says Kohn to day.

He adds that according to surveys, it is about 15 percent of the population. It is much more than in Sweden, and twice as many as in Denmark.

– But we Jews are optimists, and mostly focuses on the 85 percent who are not anti-Semites. However, it is enough to take hold of. In HL-center study from 2012, for example, an estimated 150,000 Norwegians who defended the shots at the synagogue in 2006, said Ervin Kohn.

He will on behalf of the Jewish minority stress that they feel they have Norwegian authorities in the back.

    I feel for Ervin Kohn. He and other Jews feel that haye have too much to risk by upsetting the Jews hating swine, so let us be careful. sorry Herr Kohn, that is the old and by now recognised way of being wrong.

    Quite honestly, if I were a Norwegian Jew, faced with an ongoing tirade of hate and supported by the establishment with a supposed friendly government unable to counter the effects of the Nazified establishment, I would have left long ago.

    I doubt there will be another holocaust in Norway, however, even from the majority of Norwegians you can expect no help in the continuing Jew hate which brings about insults, beatings, shots and blame . Good grief, don’t Norwegian Jews have any self respect?
