If you live in one of the many areas around the U.S. (and elsewhere in the world) where Caribou Coffee is sprouting, please don’t patronize this coffee chain. That includes people waiting at baggage in Detroit Metro Airport’s McNamara terminal, where the store has now been awarded the exclusive, coveted slot.
In the past, I’ve written about Caribou Coffee’s ties to Islamic terror in the New York Post (a version of the article appears here)and discussed it on Fox News Channel’s “O’Reilly Factor” and MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews.” Here’s an interview I did with Business Forward magazine about this poisonous coffee.
Besides employing, for years, an Islamic cleric who is the spiritual leader of the terrorist group Muslim Brotherhood (where Qaeda’s Al-Zawahiri and Yasser Arafat got their start), the company is owned by mostly Saudis (not the cute Minnesota couple, whose pic is displayed in the store). The company claims it fired the cleric, Yusuf Al-Qaradawi(there is no way to verify he was really fired, and reportedly is still on the payroll), but why did it hire the David Duke of the Islamic world, in the first place, and fire him only when it got caught? Al-Qaradawi urges homicide bombings against not just Jews, but American soldiers. And Caribou has an equally strong to Al-Qaeda’s top financier (stay tuned on that).
So, now, Caribou Coffee has opened in Metro Detroit’s primary baggage claim area, the only business there. It will make tons of money, I’m sure. But if you’re an American against terrorism, you’ll skip buying their cup of Jihad Java. The store will have plenty of other customers from around Detroit, the heart of Islamic America.
There are several other restaurants at Detroit Metro Airport with direct ties to Islamic terrorism. Stay tuned for more on this and Caribou Coffee.
