The owner of a Jewish deli in Albuquerque found an anti-Semitic message stuck to her establishment’s front door on a mailing label.

“To the Kikes who should die,” the message stuck on the front door of the Nosh Deli said, KOB News reported.

A second label read “To the Kikes who gave me a black eye.”

It is the first time her store has been targeted, owner Alisa Turtletaub told the news channel.

The FBI is investigating the incident, according to the report.

Susan Seligman, New Mexico Anti-Defamation League regional director, said it is the first reported anti-Semitic threat in New Mexico in the last couple of years, though white power prison gangs were active 15 to 20 years ago.

She believes the attack was perpetrated by an individual acting alone.
