Starbucks: We Don’t Provide Financial Support to Israel

By: JTA

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Starbucks issued a statement saying the company and its CEO do not provide any financial support to Israel or its army. The company updated a 4-year-old statement on its website after the spread of false “rumors that Starbucks or Howard provides financial support to the Israeli government and/or the Israeli Army,” the statement said, referring to Howard Schultz, Starbuck’s CEO, who is Jewish. The statement, a fact sheet in Q and A form, was updated on Aug. 5.

“Starbucks has been and remains a non-political organization. We do not support any political or religious cause. Additionally, neither Starbucks nor the company’s chairman, president and CEO Howard Schultz, provide financial support to the Israeli government and/or the Israeli Army in any way,” the statement said.

The company said in its statement that it closed its Starbucks stores in Israel in 2003 due to “on-going operational challenges that we experienced in that market.”

Starbucks has stores in 65 countries, including nearly 600 in 12 Middle Eastern and North African countries such as Morocco, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates.

  4. Everyone needs to share and boycott Starbucks. In this political climate any negative statement against Israel is portrayed as pro Hamas, pro antisemitic. Schwartz and Starbucks made a big mistake opening their trap without thinking it out better. Boycott

    I will never set foot in a Starbucks again; nor go to the drive-thru; nor purchase any of their products; nor will I accept a Starbucks anything from another person—–ever again. I will encourage my friends to drop this bad habit also. There are plenty of other places to go. Israel is forever; Starbucks is not.

  32. Gil Gilman says:

    I wish I could boycott them, but they have an inferior product, with scads of better choices from numerous competitors, so I never go there. If you ask me, their market share is down and they want to tap into the anti-semitic crowd.

    Reading articles of Starbucks not doing business in Israel is very shameful to your company and us who side and defend this tiny country and its democracy. Oh well we do not need you .
