Games Islamic terrorists play

Hezbullah has a new game on the market (Hat Tip for picture: Tunisien Doctor). Based on last summer's war, the game is designed to teach Islamist 'youths' to kidnap Israeli soldiers, fire missiles at Merkava tanks, and generally re-enact Hezbullah's 'victory' from last summer.
The new game, named "Special Force 2" - a sequel to a similar game of a few years ago dubbed "Special Force" - involves various anti-Israel missions of increasing difficulty. The first mission is to kidnap Israeli soldiers, in the style of the abduction of Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser that kicked off last year's Second Lebanon War. Imitating the events as they actually happened, the player must aim a missile at two IDF jeeps, hit at least one of them, and must then penetrate the border fence to capture the soldiers.

In addition, players undergo training, fire Katyusha rockets against Israeli towns, and participate in guerilla battles in Lebanese villages - just as happened in last year's war. The objective: to "cleanse" the villages of Israeli soldiers.

The Arabic language daily Al-Sharq Al-Awsat of London quotes Ali Saher, responsible for Hizbullah information operations, as saying, "The Lebanese child has the right to know what happened in the South [of Lebanon] and thus to emulate the operations of jihad and liberation of land."

Another goal of the game, Saher said, is to counter Western culture, which has "empty content and cheap goals... [This game] contains violence, [but] it also has a message and principles... We are not producing a game that has nothing more than violence. The difference is that a child will not be playing a pointless game with no point and no message."

The game will be sold, for only ten dollars, in Syria, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates.
Global Voices reports that the game can be played in Arabic, English, French or Farsi.

Warning: While I was at the Tunisian site and trying to open Global Voices off a Lebanese site, something called "Drive Cleaner" tried to install itself on my computer. I was able to fend it off. Be very careful not to let it install on your computer. In fact, you may want to consider skipping the first and last links in this post.

Here's a video about the game:

Once again if Israel produced a similar type of game against Palastinians the whole world would be in an uproar.
