Kill the Lebanese Prime Minister in Opposition Video Game
Finally, a game all of your Hezbollah friends can enjoy…
A video game designed in France has you assassinate the Lebanese Prime Minister in order to win the game!
PM Siniora sits up in his office in the opposition video game.
You also get a chance to kill the all of the fighters who belong to the government before you go for the prime minister.
Omar Raad at Ya Libnan reported:
Beirut & Paris – “Death to Siniora” was often shouted by pro-Syrian opposition protesters. One troubled supporter took the idea to an unthinkable extreme.
Your mission in “The battle of the Sarai” is to assassinate every minister in the government, including Fouad Siniora, the Prime Minister of Lebanon.
The game was released in December 2006, however it did not catch the media’s attention until Lebanese newspaper as-Safir carried a report on the game Wednesday, noting that it was designed in France by a Lebanese citizen who was identified by the code name of “Ziad al-Hajj“.
In order to win in “The battle of the Serai”, players must complete three chapters in the game – first kill the “militias”, the term used by Hajj to describe Lebanon’s national security forces, guarding the government building. Once inside the Grand Serail, players discover underground tunnels that lead to the U.S. Embassy in Awkar, 17 kilometers north of Beirut.
Having underground tunnels leading from the Lebanese government building to the U.S. Embassy echoes the accusations of Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah, who as repeatedly called the Siniora government “the Feltman Cabinet,” in reference to the U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon Jeffrey Feltman, whom he accuses of controlling the March 14 Majority that backs the government.
According to Hajj’s blog, the second chapter of the game involves gunning down “the gang of 14, after they escape from the Sarai using the secret tunnels.”
Attackers also fight a battle with what Hajj terms “militiamen” in the lobby, in reference to the fighters belonging to Walid Jumblat, Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea and Future Movement leader Saad Hariri, as well as Siniora himself.
The third and final chapter of the game involves storming the main hall, where Siniora is presiding over a meeting of his cabinet. The player is then required to murder what Hajj refers to as “all the traitors and thieves,” in reference to the premiere and his ministers.
The game ends with the phrase: “Game over, congratulations” when the player succeeds in “liquidating” all those in the government compound.
The Lebanese government has launched an investigation into the video game it was announced last week.
