The Jeruslem Post (free registration required) reports that Hizbullah (a Lebanese Shi'i Muslim political/militant group) is developing an action game for the PC that claims to "counter the image of the invincible all-American hero in games sold throughout the world." According to another report in Lebanon's Al-Anwar, Hizbullah says that its Internet unit is designing and planning the game, which will be based battles that took place in south Lebanon. The game will depict Israelis and American military forces as the enemy. The game will reportedly go on sale later this month in Lebanon and will come in Arabic, English, French, and Farsi. Further details can be found at the link above. As G.I. Joe says, knowing is half the battle.
