Starbucks loses again

more and more, we hear new floating around that Starbucks is somehow affiliated with the Zionist state. Even though the official response of Starbucks deny support to Israel (read below), but it seems whether they like it or not, they are going to stop financial support to anyone but Starbucks itself

1) Starbucks is closing an additional 300 stores, says the Seattle Times, and will eliminate 700 non-store and 6,000 store jobs. The store closings will save the company $500 million per year. Meanwhile, the company is trying to sell a fancy corporate jet it bought last month for $45 million

2) Consumer Reports, conducted a recent coffee study and ranked "Eight O'clock Coffee" as the best tasting coffee and noted that Starbucks, which costs considerably more did not even merit an honorable mention
It seems that the prosperous days of Starbucks are gone! What caught my attention two days back when i was in Oman is that although the campaign against Starbucks reached its peak during the Gaza invasion, Starbucks hang out locations in Muscat city center were packed. There is not execute "Eight Oclock coffee is not only better, but also cheaper"

Rumor Response: Starbucks Statement re: Support of Israel

Rumors that Starbucks Coffee Company and its management support Israel are unequivocally false.
Starbucks is a publicly traded company with stores in 49 countries. Though our thousands of partners (employees) and business associates around the globe have diverse views and share many beliefs about a wide range of topics, our primary focus remains to deliver the best customer experience possible. Starbucks is a non-political organization and does not support political causes. Further, the political preferences of a Starbucks partner at any level have absolutely no bearing on Starbucks company policies.
