About the Muhammed cartoon thing, there's more to it. Apparently radical Imams got their hands on much more offensive drawings of Muhammed, apparently for very far-right publications and claimed to the masses that they were published in a Major Newspaper (mind you Jyllands Posten isn't published outside Denmarks, so how would they know, really?), a documentarist went around the protests in the Middle East and showed people a copy of the drawing, and the protestors didn't recognise them, didn't think they were all that offenssive, and according to one "They don't even look like Muhammed"
As for the game. Well, haven't played it, and I don't really take a habit of playing those sorts of games anymore. But I did understand, from the blurb, that you can choose which side you're on.
Topic starter, however, seems to think in the mindset of not automatically taking Israel's side on everything = Opposition to Israel = Opposition to Jews = Hitler. The holocaust was horrible, but that doesn't excuse threating other people like shit for decades to come. Especially if you're not one of the survivors, but a decendant, or decendant of those who weren't even targetted, due to lacation.
Hamas is a terrorist organisation, by the defintion of Israel, USA and EU, but not the UN. According to the United Nations international law, they are a resistance movement defending their home country, and thus, not terrorists. I do not actually agree with them, or most of their goals. I'm more of a PPP supporter, though I do admit that armed self defense is needed when you're up against the greatest military force (with Nukes, too) in the whole region.
