Boycott scare

I must say the boycott appears to make some impact: this comes from a publication of the food industry:

"Starbucks and McDonald’s were forced to refute a text message claiming that the companies planned to donate a week’s worth of profits to the Israeli army. The text message was forwarded throughout Singapore and also appeared in Europe, the U.S., India, several Arab countries, and on Facebook."

Thanks for the link to BNET Food, but I have to take issue with your characterization of the site as "a publication of the food industry." We're a business news and analysis site owned by CBS Interactive, and we have no ties to the food industry, although we do cover it closely.
