DW: Nissan Retlev-Katz tells me that "the Coca Cola company has a Myths and Rumors webpage on its main website. There are only three subheadings under this page, but the massive global company felt it necessary to devote one entire section solely to rumors propagated in one geographic area - the Middle East. It won't surprise you to know that of the 7 rumors listed, one says the company is 'Jewish' and another that it donates money to Israel."
Among the rumors Coke refutes here:
Rumor: Boycotting Coca-Cola makes a statement against America and American (foreign) policies
Rumor: The Coca-Cola Company is a Jewish company. (Variations of this rumor suggest that the company is affiliated with the Mormon religion.)
Rumor: Warning not to buy Coca-Cola due to possible contamination by terrorists
Rumor: Coca-Cola contains material making it unsuitable for vegetarians and Muslims
Rumor: Coca-Cola contributes profits to Israel
Rumor: Coca-Cola runs advertising that is offensive to Muslims
Rumor: Anti-Muslim messages appear in graphics (No Mohammed, No Mecca)
Update: Godefroi contributed another example of Islamic Porkophobia, this time it's the Three Little Pigs.
