Following Backlash, Sears Removes Anti-Semitic Merchandise

Early this morning, Washington Free Beacon’s Adam Kredo reported that the American department store Sears was selling anti-Semitic t-shirts saying “Free Palestine” and “End Israeli Occupation” on its website.

This sparked outrage from pro-Israel groups and individuals who found Sears’ decision to sell anti-Semitic propaganda to be distasteful and problematic.

Here are some examples of the merchandise:

After Kredo published the article, a spokesperson for Sears contacted Free Beacon and said that the t-shirts “were being sold by a third-party seller via the Sears Marketplace” and that the department store was removing the merchandise.

However, the spokesperson took umbrage that individuals singled out Sears instead of Amazon, WalMart, and eBay as well as noting that Sears nearly employs 200 individuals in Israel.
