Yesterday we told you about people complaining that Walmart and Amazon were selling an Israeli soldier Halloween costume. No bid deal, right?
Walmart bowed to the mob and has stopped selling the costume:
WTG! Walmart are COWARDS who gave in to the hateful, anti-Israel monsters. Glad to know the IDF costume is at amazon https://t.co/ZExOHDzsTZ
