Neo-Nazi Scandinavian Group Targets Jews on Yom Kippur
September 29, 2020
The Nordic Resistance Movement, a Neo-Nazi group that recently merged all its branches in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, and Iceland, targeted Jews with a physical and virtual campaign of hatred in the days leading up to Yom Kippur.
According to the Jerusalem Post, websites that belong to the neo-Nazi movement listed actions taken in almost 20 different cities in the region. These included confronting Jewish worshippers, standing in front of synagogues, and placing anti-Semitic posters in public areas with Jewish communities. The Nordic Resistance Movement, also known as the Nordic League, wrote that it had chosen to do these actions on Yom Kippur in order to “make the Nordic people aware of foreign customs and Zionist ruling plans throughout the Nordic region.”
