    the shop would no longer rent gear such as sleds, skis and snowshoes to “our Jewish brothers” after a series of “very annoying incidents” — including the theft of a sled.

      Yes. What part of that says who stole the sled?

        Basic reading comprehension mate. The sign is wrong regardless of whether a Jewish customer stole anything. It isn’t a point worth fighting over.

          It isn’t reading comprehension, it’s a lack of critical thinking, or in some cases it’s people reading into it what they want to see. And it is worth fighting for because it is that lackadaisical attitude that will allow widespread antisemitism again and another Holocaust.

            They don’t want to sell to Jews.

            Why?

            Because of a series of “very annoying incidents” — including the theft of a sled.

            Who are they saying stole the sled?

            “our Jewish brothers”

            If you can’t infer this just from reading, then yes you lack basic reading comprehension, regardless if the person did it or not.

              That isn’t reading comprehension, that is an assumption. Insisting otherwise is doing nothing but making you look foolish.
