Vandals write ‘Jewish Pigs’ on kosher deli in Copenhagen, Denmark in an anti-Semitic attack.

A 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 just two months after two gun attacks in Copenhagen. In one of the attacks Jewish security guard Dan Uzan, who had been guarding a bat mitzvah ceremony at a synagogue, was killed.

“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 Berlingske daily, The Local reported.

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