Thank You to All Starbucks Customer
Written by Howard Schultz
Tuesday, 11 July 2006
Dear Starbucks Customer,

First and foremost I want to thank you for making Starbucks the $6.4 billion global company it is today, with more than 90,000 employees, 9,700 stores, and 33 million weekly customers. Every latte and macchiato you drink at Starbucks is a contribution to the close alliance between the United States and Israel, in fact it is - as I was assured when being honoured with the “Israel 50th Anniversary Friend of Zion Tribute Award” - key to Israel’s long-term PR success. Your daily chocolate chips frappucino helps paying for student projects in North America and Israel, presenting them with the badly needed Israeli perspective of the Intifada.

Starbucks, through the Jerusalem Fund of Aish HaTorah, an international network of Jewish education centres, sponsors Israeli military arms fairs in an effort to strengthen the special connection between the American, European and Israeli defense industries and to showcase the newest Israeli innovations in defense. As my contribution to the fight against the global rise of anti-Semitism, the reason behind the current conflict in the Middle-East, I help Aish HaTorah sponsoring the website "honestreporting.com” and produce material informing of Israel’s side of the story.
Without you, my valued customer, I wouldn’t be able to raise hundreds of millions of dollars each year to support Israeli citizens from terrorist attacks and keep reminding every Jew in America, to defend Israel at any cost. $5 billion per year from the US government are no way near enough to pay for all the weaponry, bulldozers and security fences needed to protect innocent Israeli citizens from anti-Semitic Muslim terrorism. Corporate sponsorships are essential.
Having the bigger picture in mind, Starbucks have donated a store to the US army to help in the “War on Terror”. I cannot emphasise enough, how vital the “War on Terror” is for the continued viability and prospering of the Jewish State.
So next time you feel like chilling out at a Starbucks store, please remember that with every cup you drink at Starbucks you are helping with a noble cause.
Howard Schultz
Chairman & Chief Global Strategist

I think its an excellent example of why people shouldn't believe everything they read.

It's a forgery/parody originating from a hate site - Mr Shultz wrote no such thing (although he is a well-known Zionist and supporter of Israel - hence the parody). I just feel sorry for those who might work in Starbuck's, in some countries in particular, who might even become 'targets' because of this.

You miss my point. I acknowledged that Schultz was a Zionist, and indeed many people have boycotted Starbucks, as you say. Schultz did not, however write such a letter to "All Starbuck's Customer" on 11 July 2006, or any other time - it is fake.

You may have heard a rumor about Howard Schultz, Starbucks and the Israeli army. The rumor is false. Neither chairman Howard Schultz nor Starbucks fund or support the Israeli Army.

oh..n i agree that that letter is not real...

the way in which he is being portrayed in letter juxtaposes the likeness of him even writing a letter of appreciation to the starbuks customers...

All of a sudden now in the Bahamas there have been Starbuck Cafe's popping up all over the place. One after the Other they've been sprouting like mushrooms.......

I've been there about..... 3 times? and their coffee is'nt all that spectacular in my opinion, I can make batter cappucino latte at home lol

However it's obvious that this letter is a fake, but I'm sure there is still some truth to it.

Sprry Syilla, the link you provided seem not to work.

But I did find this when I did a search on googles.

http://www.inminds.co.uk/boycott-israel.html

but as you said it may be based on false information. However we must be vigilant that this companies does not affilliate financially indirectly or directly to promotion/funding of arms sale or these goverments that affilliate in such behaviour. It does not have to have a coffee shop in Israel to be in their cause, their is other way of funnelling support.

This need further investigation.
