“McDonald’s and Starbucks have yesterday announced that they will be donating all profits from now until Sunday to Israeli war. Also, the producers of Adam Sandler’s new movie Bed Time Stories will be donating their profits to THE Zionist entity of Israel.”
It is difficult to verify these specific claims. Both companies are predictably saying they are victims of Internet and SMS rumours. However, it is another example of the wide-spread anger felt by the general public at the atrocities carried out by Israel and increasing awareness of how the US supports it.
McDonald’s is on the Innovative Minds boycott list of companies that support Israel:
According to the Chicago Jewish Community Online (website of the Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago), McDonalds Corporation whose global headquarters is based just outside Chicago is a major corporate partner of the Jewish United Fund and Jewish Federation.1.
Through its Israel Commission, the Jewish United Fund “works to maintain American military, economic and diplomatic support for Israel; monitors and, when necessary, responds to media coverage of Israel”2.
Starbucks is also on this list:
Howard Shultz, the chairman of Starbucks is an active zionist.
In 1998 he was honoured by the Jerusalem Fund of Aish HaTorah with “The Israel 50th Anniversary Friend of Zion Tribute Award” for his services to the zionist state in “playing a key role in promoting close alliance between the United States and Israel”. The Jerusalem Fund of Aish HaTorah funds israeli arms fairs chaired by the butcher of Jenin – General Shaul Mofaz, and the zionist propaganda website honestreporting.com.1
His work as a propagandist for Israel has been praised by the Israeli Foreign Ministry as being key to Israel’s long-term PR success.
