Bahrain Petition Launched to Ban Hizbullah Game

[Gulf Daily News-Bahrain] An online petition calling for a ban on a new Hizbullah computer video game for children has been launched. It claims that the 3-D game, Special Force 2, promoted violence and facilitated "Hizbullah's manipulation and recruitment of Bahraini children." Designed by Hizbullah computer experts, Special Force 2 allows players to take on the role of a Hizbullah fighter and collect points and weapons by killing Israeli soldiers. The 26-year-old Bahraini woman who launched the petition said, "As a Muslim, I should not promote violence against a social sect or religion." "Surely, most Israelis are Jews, but a lot are Arabs too, so we are fighting against ourselves and we are promoting ourselves as savages to the world," said the Bahraini, who is an avid video game player.
