Baker cautioned that investing in needed security measures "is a formidable challenge" for small communities with limited budgets. "The 1000 Jews of Oslo, Norway, and the 1000 Jews who live in Melilla, a Spanish enclave on the North African coast, may be geographically at opposite ends of the European map, but both communities are spending an inordinate share of their budgets simply to try to keep their members physically safe," he said.Baker called on the House committee to press European members of the OSCE to confront head-on the groups in their own societies that are threatening Jewish communities and institutions, and to ensure that adequate protection is provided so that Jews can continue to practice their faith and live their lives without fear.
