Egyptian Cleric wants a boycott of Starbucks because Queen Esther is in their logo.
An Egyptian Muslim cleric has called on the Muslim and Arab world to boycott Starbucks because he claims thefemale character depicted in the company’s logo is actually Queen Esther, the heroine in the story of Purim.
The logo shows a woman with a crown, topped by a five-pointed star on her head. Although there is no apparent reference to anything Jewish in the portrayal, cleric Safwat Higazi recently declared on Egyptian television, “The girl in the Starbucks logo is Queen Esther.” The video of Higazi’s statement was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute MEMRI (www.memritv.org).
Violent Intruders Attack Brooklyn Synagogues
For the second time in less than a week, a packed Brooklyn, New York, synagogue has been the target of threats of violence by intruders.
On Monday, according to Yeshiva World News, an Arab man in his mid-30s entered Boro Park’s ‘Sephardish Shul’ and began making proclamations of jihad. Members of a Jewish volunteer security organization, the Shomrim, apprehended the threatening individual. They held him until police officers arrived at the scene, arresting the suspect. Detectives spoke with the “Middle Eastern man” at a station house near the synagogue.
Police officials reminded the community, “If you see something, say something.” Security in Brooklyn’s heavily Jewish Boro Park area has been stepped up during the Purim holiday.
Just two days earlier, a man wielding a butcher’s knife burst into a Kerestir Chassidic synagogue in Williamsburg. He initially turned up unarmed and began throwing soda cans at the gathered worshipers, which hit one of them, and returned shortly thereafter with the bladed weapon.
Hevron (Israel): Muslim worshipers desecrate Holy Texts
Muslims in the city of Hevron were allowed to access the entire Tomb of the Patriarchs (Maarat HaMachpelah) this week in honor of the birthday of Mohammed, whom Muslims revere as a prophet. Worshipers took advantage of the opportunity to desecrate Jewish holy texts, including prayer books and books of Psalms.
The damage was discovered on Monday when Jews were allowed to return to the prayer halls usually set aside for Jewish use. The desecration caused upset and anger among the returning Jewish worshipers.
OK folks, without any comments from me on any of the above (I wouldn’t stay even remotely civil anyway), it’s time for me to simply say “have at it”.
