A Muslim hotel owner in California discriminated against a group of Jewish Los Angeles young adults, a jury in Santa Monica Superior Court found on Wednesaday.

Tehmina Adaya, the owner of the Hotel Shangri-La, discriminated against the nonprofit Friends of the Israel Defense Forces.

On July 11, Adaya abruptly ended a pool party that had been approved by members of the hotel’s management in advance, ordering that all informational brochures and the group's banner be removed from the premises. She allegedly yelled, "Get these [expletive] Jews out of my pool," according to testimony.
