Hotel Shangri-LA Discriminated Against Jews, Jury Finds

Via: Huffington Post

A jury determined Wednesday that the owner of the Hotel Shangri-La in Santa Monica discriminated against Jews during a charity event in July 2010. The owner reportedly yelled “Get the [expletive] Jews out of my pool!” and forced the party to pack up and leave.

The owner, Tehmina Adaya (see above – ‘upon hearing the verdict’ ), a Muslim of Pakistani descent, denied charges that she made anti-semitic statements and discriminated against the Jewish group.

On the day in question, 18 young leaders of Friends of the Israel Defense Forces were holding a charity event at the hotel to help children of fallen IDF soldiers go to summer camps, the Jewish Chronicle reports.
