ISIS Creates Video Game Glorifying Attacks on US Soldiers – Complete with “Allahu Akbars” (Video)
The game comes complete with Islamic music and terrorists screaming, “Allahu Akbar!”
Islamic State jihadists are believed to have released a new recruiting video based on a notoriously violent computer game.
The mocked-up Grand Theft Auto-style trailer is designed to attract younger members and features virtual fighters shouting “Allahu Akbar!” as they attack U.S. troops.
Throughout, the terror group’s logo is displayed at the top of the screen, alongside the apparent “GTA” styling.
According to Islamic State’s media wing, the video aims to “raise the morale of the mujahedin and to train children and youth how to battle the West and to strike terror into the hearts of those who oppose the Islamic State”.
The words “Flames of War” appear at the end of the trailer, with the tagline: “Fighting has just begun”.
The Grand Theft Auto series it appears to be based on is one of the world’s most popular video games.
Created by Scottish firm Rockstar Games, GTA’s fifth edition exceeded worldwide sales of £500 million ($800 million) on its first day of release last September.
