Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu repeated his calls for European Jews to return home to Israel, responding to the shootings in Copenhagen, Denmark in which Jewish guard Dan Uzan was murdered outside a synagogue, in addition to an earlier victim killed outside an event about Islam and free speech.

"Extreme Islamic terror in Europe has struck again and this time it's in Denmark. We send our condolences to the families of those killed. They are once again killing Jews on European soil simply for being Jewish."

"The wave of attacks against Jews in Europe is expected to continue and it is up to us to stay prepared," he said. "Jews need protection wherever they are, but we're telling you: Israel is your home," he said.

The prime minister said that Israel is ready for massive immigration from Europe, saying "Israel is there for [European Jewry] and Israel is their home. Today, the government will discuss a NIS 180 million program to support aliyah and we are create more programs for Jews around the world. Israel is waiting for you with open arms."
