Starbucks explains it doesn’t fund IDF

Responding to calls to boycott Starbucks for its alleged monetary support for the state of Israel, the American coffee chain releases a press statement in which it clarifies that it doesn’t “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.”

Moreover, Starbucks’ absence from the Israeli java market has nothing to do with politics, the company says. “We do not make business decisions based on political issues.”
