Starbucks: We Don't Provide Financial Support to Israel


The global coffee company Starbucks released a statement this week to clarify apparent misconceptions about the company's patronage of Israel, Huffington Post reports.

In a fact sheet updated August 5, Starbucks notes it does not support any political or religious causes, adding that neither Starbucks nor its CEO, Howard Schultz, provides any financial support to the Israeli government or Israeli military.
