Starbucks Wants You to Know It Does NOT Support Israeli Army

Sets Up Site to Fend Off Middle East Boycotts

By Published on .

Despite the fact that Starbucks doesn't even operate in Israel anymore, insane rumors have been spreading around the Middle Eastern countries in which it does operate accusing the store of sending its money to the state of Israel or the Israeli Army. Starbucks has now set up a site to clear up misconceptions. Of course, I find it more than a little funny that Starbucks operates in all these countries where it'll be boycotted for outlandishly ridiculous rumors, but it doesn't operate in Israel due to "operational challenges."
