No, not because Starbuck’s coffee sucks, he thinks Starbuck’s logo is Queen Esther, Queen of the JOOOOOOOOS!
“We Want Starbucks To Be Shut Down Throughout The Arab And Islamic World…It Is Inconceivable That InMecca and Al-Madina, There Will Be a Picture of Queen Esther”
Safwat Higazi: “Today, I would like to talk about the Starbucks coffee shop. Starbucks is to be found in Mecca, in Al-Madina, opposite the King Abdul Aziz Gate in Mecca, opposite the Al-Majid Gate in Al-Madina, as well as in Cairo. Starbucks is to be found everywhere, with this logo. This is the Starbucks logo.
“Has any of you ever wondered who this woman with a crown on her head is? Why do we boycott Starbucks? I will tell you, so you will know why you should boycott this company, and what this logo stands for. As I’ve already said, it is not enough to avoid entering this coffee shop. It is not enough to refrain from drinking this coffee. You must urge people never to go there, but none of you should even consider throwing a stone, breaking anything, or burning [the place] down.
“The girl in the Starbucks logo is Queen Esther. Do you know who Queen Esther was and what the crown on her head means? This is the crown of the Persian kingdom. This queen is the queen of the Jews. She is mentioned in the Torah, in the Book of Esther. The girl you see is Esther, the queen of the Jews in Persia.”
“The Crown You See Here [In the Starbucks Logo] is the Crown of the Kingdom of Xerxes,” says Higazi.
According to Doug Fast, the designer of the Starbucks logo, the woman depicted is based on a Greek mythological siren – half woman/half fish – and has nothing to do with Queen Esther.
