Reasons not to go to Starbucks
Miguel José Ernst brought this to my attention after I blogged the news of Joni Mitchell pushing her unoriginal anti-Romanism there. Not only do they work for the state of Israel; there’s this:
Starbucks fully supports Bush’s war of terror and has opened a Starbucks in Afghanistan for the US invaders — they like to do their bit to help the occupation.
So even well-meaning supporters of Israel who stand with me on Iraq have a reason to go somewhere else.

My father confessor lived in Jerusalem for a year and can tell you what the Israelis think of Christians

I interpret St Pius X’s opinion not as a green light to persecute Jews, which wasn’t what he meant, but rather the authentic Catholic position, opposed to dispensationalist nonsense, that the Jews have no more religious claim to Palestine and only Catholicism has the fulness of truth.
We are spiritual Semites.
— Pope Pius XI answering Nazism, which wanted ultimately to get rid of Christianity because it is a Semitic religion

The world would have been a better place if the Central Powers had won World War I and the place remained a distant province of Turkey.
