Gaza Strife Reflected Poorly In Raid Gaza Flash Game

Illustration for article titled Gaza Strife Reflected Poorly In Raid Gaza Flash Game

A new flash game up at and flash website Newgrounds might be taking its tongue-in-cheek look at the Israeli-Palestinian fighting along the Gaza Strip a bit too far.

The flash game has the player controlling the Israelis, portrayed as a powerful and resourceful group overreacting to Palestinian Qassam rockets, which ineffectually swoop in the air, barely ever hitting a target. The goal of the game is to build missile silos, barracks, headquarters, and airports, using them to attack the Gaza Strip in order to kill the most Palestinians in 3 minutes. You start off with 10,000 Sheqel to spend, but can call out for aid at regular intervals to receive more cash. Bonus points are awarded for hitting police stations and hospitals. The whole affair is made even more ridiculous by the music in the background - The Carpenters' "Close To You".

I know it's supposed to be a political statement, but the whole thing leaves me feeling a bit ill. How about you folks?

The game alone made me laugh, but the music just pushes me into gasping for air territory!

I would say that I'm going to hell, but laughing at countless jokes about a lot of horrible tragedies over the years has pretty much sealed the deal a LONG time ago.
