JNS.orgA kosher deli in Copenhagen, Denmark, was defaced on Thursday by vandals who smashed its front window and wrote anti-Semitic messages on its walls, including “Jewish pigs.”

The incident took place two months after a shooting attack in Copenhagen that killed Jewish security guard Dan Uzan, who had been guarding a bat mitzvah ceremony at a synagogue.

“All vandalism is serious, but it is obvious that when it comes to this particular location, there will be an extra focus on it,” police investigator Kenneth Jensen told the Danish newspaper Berlingske.

“This is not the Denmark that I know and admire… Incidents such as these should not happen, and a fundamental change must be made,” Israeli Ambassador to Denmark Baruch Bina told Yedioth Ahronoth.
