Starbucks shuts all Belgium stores after bombings target Airport Location
Targeted, most likely, because Starbucks is considered to be "Pro-Zionist".
From the Vlad Tepes Blog:
New York (AFP) – Starbucks shut all of its coffee shops in Belgium on Tuesday, after a Brussels airport outlet was apparently the location of one of the bombs that killed about 35 people.
“Amidst reports of attacks targeting Brussels Airport and a metro station, initial indications are that an explosion took place outside our store within the airport,” the US coffee chain said in a statement.
“This store and all other Starbucks stores in Belgium will remain closed until further notice.”
So what does Starbucks have to do with Jews?
From Arab American News:
Starbucks in particular has gained a reputation in the local community for notoriously being a pro-Zionist company, yet a lot of that appears to be based on misinformation. In fact, within the last year, any strings that had connected Starbucks to Israel appear to have been cut. The company closed down all six of its locations in that country earlier this year, dissolving its joint partnership with Shalom Coffee Co., which helped operate the Starbucks locations in Israel.GO READ THE REST OF THE STORY.
