A neo-Nazi group demonstrated outside the Jewish synagogue in Oslo while the celebration of the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur was taking place.

The incident took place on Monday and was reported by newspaper Dagsavisen on Wednesday.

People associated with the neo-Nazi organization The Nordic Resistance Movement (DNM) are said to have handed out leaflets with anti-Semitic content at the synagogue of the Mosaic Faith Society (DMT) at St. Hanshaugen in Oslo, according to Dagsavisen.

“Very uncomfortable”

“It was very uncomfortable to have three Nazis demonstrating outside the synagogue on Yom Kippur.

The organization is a self-declared National Socialist group and is banned in Finland,” deputy head of the Anti-Racist Center and head of the Mosaic Faith Community Ervin Kohn wrote in a post on the website of the Anti-Racist Center.

He stated that the police eventually stopped the demonstration and that the protesters were asked to leave the place.

“Everyone must condemn this”

The president of the Church of Norway, Olav Fykse Tveit, also reacted to the demonstration.

“Everyone must condemn this,” he said.

“This applies not only to us as religious partners, but the whole of Norwegian society must be crystal clear on this,” he noted in a press release.

Fykse Tveit also said that such a neo-Nazi act during a Jewish holiday is disgusting.

  1. After 9 April 1940, any openly/official Nazi in Norway should be automatically prosecuted for treason. They’re not just another political party.
