Default Swiss antisemitism shock at shop sign saying no skis for Jews

Swiss police have opened an investigation into a ski hire shop's announcement it would no longer rent skis and sledges to Jewish customers.

The shop, in the famous resort of Davos, has now reversed its decision.

It has taken down the signs, translated into Hebrew, which informed customers of the ban.

But many have argued the case is a clear violation of Switzerland's laws against discrimination and incitement to racial or religious hatred.

The Swiss Federation of Jewish Communities has launched its own legal action, condemning the signs as clearly discriminatory.

Posters in the sports shop window informed customers that, because of incidents, including theft, "we no longer rent sports equipment to our Jewish brothers".

The shop in question, part of the Pischa mountain restaurant, said in an initial statement that equipment was often not being returned, and its staff no longer wanted "the hassle" of scouring the mountain sides trying to find abandoned sledges.

But just 24 hours after putting the posters up, they were taken down after a storm of protest. Davos Mayor Philipp Wilhelm told Swiss media: "Any and all forms of antisemitism, racism and discrimination must be condemned. This does not belong in Davos."

The manager of the shop has apologised, agreeing that the poster had been "badly worded". Jewish customers were welcome, he said, with immediate effect.

…yeah, I would definitely agree that "we no longer rent sports equipment to our Jewish brothers" is indeed very bad wording…and very bad in intent and objective and purpose etc and very dangerous wording…it’ll be interesting to see what the outcome of the ‘investigations’ are…

Blatant Anti-Semitism is in vogue at the moment.

What an age we live in guys.

Honestly these Business people are getting worse at marketing and PR by the day.

According to the Manager of this particular shop "women belong in the Kitchen and in the Bedroom." And you don't want to know what he thinks of black women.

But being serious, with how angry the company seems to be, has the owner ever even spoke to a woman that wasn't his own Mother?

David doesn't care, he will go private if he needs something doing.. I wouldn't have any issue with bringing them here if the NHS was in good shape, but thanks to his government they are on their knees and now he wants to sink them further.

There are plenty countries around Palestine that could possibly take them

it's just what we want, ship a load of potential terrorists back to our country which is one of the biggest allies of their opponent. What could possibly go wrong

Maybe if we don't want to deal with the consequences of a genocide, that we shouldn't have been standing aside twiddling our thumbs.

Wait until I tell you that Israel will try to push whoever is still breathing by the time they've bombed every stone in Gaza, right into Europe.

People in this thread thinking this was justified because Jews... And Israel. Basically supporting anti-Semitism by thinking this is no big deal. Sickening.

do i say that?


i don't hate the israeli people


i just dislike moron Netanyahu and the power hungry IDF



this is a big deal for sure, but if only Benny had acted properly in how to deal with terrorists (like you know asking USA's Navy Seals for help, for a clean precision attack at Hamas, i mean how cleanly they took down Bin Laden for example)

nope Benny doesn't want help, all Benny cares for is to conquer Gaza to make it his own



and for the last time Livia, i'm not antisemitic, i feel for the israeli people, how awful it must be to live under such a self-absorbed idiotic dictator for a leader (Benny isn't anything better than the likes of Erdogan, Orban, Putin, Trump)
