Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sent out a call to Jews currently living in Europe to come to Israel, “your home,” he said.

“Extremist Islamic terrorism has struck Europe again, this time in Denmark,” Mr. Netnayahu said, Israel National News reported. “We send our condolences to the Danish people and to the Jewish community in Denmark.”

He then said that Jews ought to come home to Israel, before the terrorist situation worsens.

“Jews have been murdered again on European soil only because they were Jews and this wave of terrorist attacks — including murderous anti-Semitic attacks — is expected to continue,” Mr. Netanyahu said, the newspaper reported. “Of course, Jews deserve protection in every country, but we say to Jews, to our brothers and sisters: Israel is your home. We are preparing and calling for the absorption of mass immigration from Europe.”

And one more message, Israel National News reported: “I would like to tell all European Jews and all Jews wherever they are: Israel is the home of every Jew.”

His statement comes on the heels of two targeted attacks against Jewish people in Copenhagen over the weekend.
