Wal-mart has decided to discontinue the sales of an "Israeli solider kids costume" and a "Sheik Fagin Nose" after receiving widespread criticism about the Middle East inspired Halloween get-ups.
After a series of deadly attacks and clashes between Israelis and Palestinians, anti-discrimination groups said the costumes were insensitive.
"Walmart is promoting occupation and the killing of innocent children this Halloween," tweeted author Max Blumenthal with a photo of a child receiving medical care.

The child's Israeli soldier costume features a red beret, belt, olive-green pants, and a matching jacket with Hebrew writing resembling what members of the Israeli Defense Forces wear.
