Anti-Israel attitudes in Norway may be fueling anti-Semitism there, the international security organization OSCE warned on Monday. 

The warning came in a report on Norway compiled by members of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, the daily Aftenposten reported, adding that the report called the trend “disturbing.”

The report also called for the abolition of a ban on Jewish ritual slaughter, or shechitah, that has been in place in Norway since 1929. Abolishing the ban would be “an important symbolic gesture,” the report said, according to Aftenposten.

The OSCE report points to a survey conducted last year by TNS Gallup for the Oslo-based Center for Studies of Holocaust and Religious Minorities. Thirty-eight percent of the survey’s 1,522 respondents said that Israel's treatment of Palestinians is comparable to the actions of the Nazis. Some 12%  expressed strong anti-Jewish attitudes.
