Vandals strike Jewish deli in Copenhagen

A Jewish deli and kosher supermarket in Copenhagen was vandalized. A window of the store was smashed and anti-Semitic epithets were scrawled on the wall, including “Jewish pigs,” according to The Local, a European English newspaper, citing the Berlingske Tidende newspaper.

The attack, which was discovered on April 9 at Slagter & Delikatesse, comes less than two months after a terror attack outside a Copenhagen synagogue left a Jewish volunteer security guard dead.

In the wake of the synagogue attack, a guard protects the deli during business hours, the Jerusalem Post reported.

“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 Berlingske.

Also April 9, Denmark marked the 75th anniversary of the German invasion of the country, flying its flag at half-mast in front of the Danish Parliament. — jta
