New Palestinian Computer Game: ‘The Language of Weapons’ ‘Most Effective’ Against Israelis

By Barbara Boland | October 27, 2014 | 11:59am EDT

A group of amateur programmers in the Gaza Strip have developed a game called "The Liberation of Palestine" where gamers carry out missions like buying weapons, establishing refugee camps, swapping prisoners and carrying out attacks in order to get rid of Israeli settlements in order to liberate Palestine - virtually.

"This game shows young Palestinians - or in fact, all Palestinians - that mutual understandings and negotiations over plundered rights can never bring about any positive result," said Al-Ghad Al-Arabi from the United Arab Emirates, in an interview with Sky News Arabia.

The game description says that players gain experience devising plans and forming alliances, and will become familiar with various offensive and defensive weapons.

"In the game you form diplomatic alliances and carry out prisoner swaps," says game developer Karam Hussein.

"The idea is to develop the spirit of resistance among Palestinian boys and girls," said Al-Ghad Al-Arabi to Sky News Arabia. "The language of weapons is the most effective with the Israelis."
