Succumbing to Islamization leading to dhimmitude.
There were, and still are, lots of western businesses who couldn’t care less what kind of entity they’re dealing with, as long as money changes hands. Like the mafia in Italy and in the US, it always comes at a cost.
STARBUCKS BANS WOMEN FROM STORE IN SAUDI ARABIA
“Please no entry for ladies”
I keep hearing that Islam is diverse and tolerant. Also Mohammed, when he wasn’t raping captured women and little girls, was the original feminist. But this is what life in the holy land of Islam looks like.
A sign typed in both Arabic and English on the door of a Starbucks branch in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia informed customers that women were banned from the store and would not be served, the Independent reported on Thursday, citing the Arabic language daily Al Weaam.
“Please no entry for ladies only send your [male] driver to order,” read the green sign taped to the door of the international coffee chain store.
Saudi Arabia’s religious police, the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, banned female patrons from the coffee shop after it found during an inspection that a gender partition wall inside the store had collapsed.
A spokeswoman for the Starbucks franchise explained that the company adheres to local customs and was working to refurbish the store to meet the needs of the region.
“Starbucks in Saudi Arabia adheres to the local customs by providing separate entrances for families as well as single people,” said the company in a statement. “We are working as quickly as possible as we refurbish our Jarir store, so that we may again welcome all customers in accordance with local customs.”
Now Starbucks didn’t invent these rules. Islam did. But Starbucks chooses to operate under them and to enforce them. And there’s little to no outrage over it.
Starbucks has already gone pretty far in pandering to Muslim anti-Semitism. Its website has a FAQ that reassures Muslims that Starbucks has nothing to do with Israel.
