    They are not allowed to have them. You want them to be allowed them.

    Everyone needs to use the shower but for some reason Jewish guests were singled out. Likewise with the fridge business.

    Normal hotels would target ALL guests.

    Doesn't work like that.

    If you run a public facing business in the EEA and Switzerland you can not single any individual or group of people out on their age, gender, sexuality, religion, nationality, ethnic group or disability for less favourable treatment in supplying goods and services to them.

    If you decide you don't want to do something because you are a bigot in some way, you make up a reasonable excuse that doesn't fall foul of the law.

    What do you mean "look what they did"? I've always been like this.

    True. The reason was that it was (apparently) only Jewish guests who were swimming without showering first. Of course, she should have written "All guests".
    Likewise with the fridge business.
    False. Only the Jewish guests are allowed access to the fridge in order to store various kosher items of their own. Non-Jewish guests are not allowed access to the fridge. Therefore it makes sense in this case to say "To our Jewish guests".
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    "Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely denounced the sign as “an anti-Semitic act of the worst and ugliest kind”"

    Can anyone think of a worse and more ugly kind of anti-semitism?
    Does this make the Israeli Foreign Minister a holocaust denier?

    Other Swiss hotels would target ALL guests but write the sign in Yiddish.

    I was going to add that in but thought it would be commonsense.
