First it was Lady's Choice now its Starbucks, what's next!?
I saw a site that says Starbucks, an alleged Jewish owned chained and I don't understand why the writer had to mention that is so as a fact I don't know, that the coffee sold at this popular coffee chain is laced with pork product.
This may be enough for Muslims in the country to panic or to not patronise this international coffee chain.
I dread to think that there is an agenda behind this sudden anti-Starbucks campaign, for I love Starbucks coffee especially the long black in a mug, I always ordered that at Bangsar Village One.
I just hope that there was no malice intended by the blogsite in particular when feeding us with such information.
On serious note, we have to stop this anti-Jewish stance,it is not helping Malaysia. BTW Starbucks is doing so well in the Gulf states in the middle-east and I have no idea what is the agenda behind this what appears to be a sudden anti-Starbucks campaign!
I still remember many years ago how Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim (BABI) ordered a campaign against a product called Lady's Choice (owned by Unilever if am not mistaken) saying the jelly jam used pork product. The product was later given a clean bill of health after some checking!
Later on we found out that BABI was angry with this particular company for not complying with his request! The request was a donation of a large sum of money in which Lady's Choice said Nyet, it means no!
For the sake of reducing our state of paranoia, especially during this fasting month, I hope the site that alleges Starbucks is a Jewish-owned company is feeding pork to Muslims in this country to double check its information!
