Israel's Denmark Ambassador: All Jews 'Welcome to Come to Israel'

By    |   Monday, 16 February 2015 11:48 AM EST

Jews should be safe "wherever they are," but those feeling unsafe in countries around the world were welcome to respond to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's invitation and move to Israel, Barukh Binah, Israeli ambassador to Denmark, told MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

Binah's statement followed two terror attacks over the weekend in Copenhagen where two died, including a guard at a synagogue on Sunday. Netanyahu urged Jews in Europe on Sunday to move to Israel after the Copenhagen attacks, which followed a deadly assault on a Jewish grocery store in Paris in January.

"Jews should be safe wherever they are. Those who live in France or in Copenhagen or in London or in New York should be safe, should feel secure, should be protected.

"Israel is the homeland of the Jewish people. Israel is the Jewish country. Israel is the Jewish nation-state. And Jews are very welcome to come to Israel whenever they want, wherever they wish to," Binah said Monday.

Binah said Dan Uzan, the guard killed at the synagogue, had "prevented a large-scale catastrophe and tragedy," and that the Jewish community was "aching" with his family over his death.

The attacks in Copenhagen and Paris were beginning to show a "pattern," Binah said, which he called "malignant" and stressed "should not be admitted."

"This is something bad that's happening here, and it should be stopped," he said. "An end should be put to this immediately."
