UK: Outrage over 'Muslim Massacre' computer game

A computer game in which players battle to wipe out all Muslims is 'deeply offensive' and should be removed from the internet, furious members of an Islamic group say.

Muslim Massacre involves taking control of an gung-ho 'American Hero' armed with a machine gun and a rocket launcher.

He is parachuted into a Middle Eastern country with the aim of 'leaving no Muslim man or woman alive'.

Players progress through the levels, targeting characters dressed as terrorists and civilians, before taking on Osama bin Laden, Mohammed and finally Allah.

But the game, which is available for free online, has been attacked by Muslim groups for glamorising violence against Islam.

British Muslim youth organisation the Ramadhan Foundation expressed its 'deep condemnation and anger' at the game.

The group said: 'This game is glorifying the killing of Muslims in the Middle East and we urge ISP providers to take action to remove this site from their services as it incites violence towards Muslims and is trying to justify the killing of innocent Muslims.

'We have written to the British Government to urge an inquiry into this game and take action to shut down the site.

'This is not satire but a deliberate attempt to demonise Muslims.'

The group's chief executive, Mohammed Shafiq, said: 'Encouraging children and young people in a game to kill Muslims is unacceptable, tasteless and deeply offensive.

Could you imagine the outrage if the game had been based on carrying out a new Jewish Holocaust?
