Copenhagen: Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt advised Danish Jews not to emigrate Monday despite a call from her Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu for European Jews to move to Israel.

"The Jewish community have been in this country for centuries. They belong in Denmark, they are part of the Danish community and we wouldn`t be the same without the Jewish community in Denmark," she told reporters the day after a 37-year-old Jewish man was shot dead when guarding Copenhagen`s main synagogue.
