Denmark institutes decoration for valor in honor of Israeli security guard

Denmark’s parliament has instituted a new decoration for valor in memory of Israeli security guard Dan Uzan, who stopped a terrorist trying to infiltrate a synagogue in the country, saving the lives of 70 girls celebrating a Bat Mitzvah. The decoration honors both Uzan and Swedish director Finn Nørgaard who also stopped a terrorist. “The purpose of the decoration is to give thanks to civilians who showed exceptional bravery while risking their lives in an effort to save the life of others,” the Danish parliament said in a statement.
