Egyptian fantasy: Starbucks must be boycotted because Starbucks logo shows Queen Esther!

The Starbucks coffeeshop logo shows a mermaid. This Egyptian cleric insists that Starbucks must be avoided by all good Muslims because its logo shows - Queen Esther! Expensive coffee is not my thing, but really this is absurd. This video, shown on Egyptian state television, is part of the peace dividend. Can Israel expect more such "dividends" as a result of the ongoing peace process? To get this propaganda, is it really a good idea to trade away territory? Is this what "normal" relations mean?
CLick here if you cannot see the video below
