Anti-Discrimination Activists Deem THIS Children's Costume Too Scary And Violent For Halloween

Amidst Joker, pirate, Star Wars Storm Trooper, Darth Vader, ninja, vampire, zombie, werewolf, and wicked troll children's costumes, Walmart has decided to pull one costume off their shelves because an activist group deemed it "a symbol of fear" and "violence."

According to The Washington Free Beacon, Walmart has removed an Israeli Defense Forces soldier costume from its shelves after pressure from pro-Palestinian activist groups.

The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, which itself has drawn the ire of human rights organizations, claims in a statement by president Samer Khalaf that “The costumes are very problematic, and offensive to many people. The Israeli forces are responsible for the continued death and occupation of the Palestinian people. Such a symbol of fear, violence and a long history of dispossession should not be used for entertainment purposes.”

Pro-Israel group Israel Project has criticized Walmart's decision and started an online petition to pressure the retailer to "Stand up against anti-Israeli hate."

Some are taking issue with Walmart still selling keffiyeh head wraps, which they say are an oft-used symbol of violence against Israel.

Political blogger Omri Ceren commented that “Palestinian and Arab terrorists have spent the last month stabbing Israelis and Americans in the streets. Walmart is choosing to feature terrorist costumes but deny Americans the ability to side with Israel. It’s disgraceful.”

There is been no word of Walmart pulling children's Satan costumes from their shelves, despite the Devil being the ultimate symbol of fear, violence, and evil.
