AFP – An online video game launched on Tuesday lets you play the role of a Gaza student who must negotiate a web of Israeli obstacles in order to attend university in the occupied West Bank — but you can’t win.
The game, developed by an Israeli rights group with EU funding, walks players through the restrictions that remain in place despite Israel’s recent decision to allow greater amounts of consumer goods into the Hamas-run enclave.
Players begin by choosing characters on the website (www.spg.org.il), either a student, an ice cream manufacturer trying to export to the West Bank, or a man deported to Gaza whose family still lives in the occupied territory.
There are several options, including appealing to the Israeli military, petitioning the supreme court, or travelling via Egypt and Jordan, but in the game all of them lead to failure.
Hey, I’ve got a great idea! To make it really lifelike and make sure to tell all sides of the story (which is what they want, of course!) they should add some characters.
Where are the Hamas leaders admitting if the blockade is lifted more terror will follow?
They also need a few piece of crap martyr wannabes claiming that “attacking Israeli civilians is not a war crime”. How about a couple of Hamas happy asses celebrating it? Throw in a Jew-eating terrorist rabbit and Mickey Mouse lookalike indoctrinating their children into a lifetime of hate and constant war and they might be on to something.
OH and don’t forget the exploding donkeys!
They really should let the characters live through three days of terror in Israel before deciding if they are truly the victim. Maybe they would decide they don’t want to be associated with the evil that perpetrates such acts. Then they could give extra points if the character develops a conscience and decides to take out the obligatory terrorist loving pieces of shit that praise the evil of pulling over a car of “settlers” and executing a nine month pregnant woman and her four innocent girls.
Yeah, that’s the ticket. To be fair and all.
