Antisemitism in Norway and Europe

Booman Tribune has posted a complete translation of Norwegian establishment author Jostein Gaarder's Aftenposten article "God's Chosen People". (via Andrew Sullivan).

Debates continue on Aftenposten's Middle East discussion forum, but after reading the posts there it's obvious that the antisemites are in the overwhelming majority.

Really not a great deal has changed in Norway and Europe on this matter since the 1930s - public attitudes remain largely the same. That the problem seems to be particularly serious in the countries of Scandinavia, especially Norway, may strike some people as surprising.
