Norwegian Muslims plan to form a “ring of peace” around a synagogue in Oslo this Saturday as a gesture of solidarity with the Jewish community in the Scandinavian country.

“If the jihadists want to use violence in the name of Islam, they must go through us Muslims first,” one of the event’s planners told Hope Not Hate, a grassroots anti-extremism organization based in Britain.

“Muslims want to show that we deeply despise all types hatred of Jews, and that we are there to support them,” the group said in a statement to Hope Not Hate.
