Norway’s largest print newspaper apologised for running an article about Israel and antisemitism that used the phrase “the Jewish question” in the headline.

That phrase has a long history of being used to demean, dehumanise and stigmatise Jewish people, both before and during the Holocaust.

Espen Egil Hansen, the editor-in-chief of Aftenposten, issued a lengthy apology for the original article – which ran in the paper. In a full page commentary in Monday’s paper, Hansen apologised for the original article, which was headlined in print: “The Jewish question splits the Left on both sides of the Atlantic.” The article examined accusations of antisemitism against public figures.
