Bibi calls for ‘massive’ Jewish immigration to Israel after ‘wave of attacks’

The Israeli prime minister is calling for the “massive immigration” of European Jews to his country following a shooting outside a synagogue in Denmark that killed a man.

Benjamin Netanyahu said the government will discuss a 46 million US dollar (£30 million) plan to encourage Jewish immigration from France, Belgium and Ukraine.

“This wave of attacks is expected to continue,” he said at the start of a Cabinet meeting.

“Jews deserve security in every country, but we say to our Jewish brothers and sisters, Israel is your home.”

A 37-year-old Jewish security guard was killed while standing guard at a bat mitzvah celebration in Copenhagen.

Jair Melchior, Denmark’s chief rabbi, said he was “disappointed” by Mr Netanyahu‘s call for immigration following the attack.

“Terror is not a reason to move to Israel,” he said.
