Extremists Unhappy About their Representation in Games

A radical terrorist cell going by the name of "The Hand of God" issued a statement this week, saying they are unhappy about how they are being portrayed in games.

"We think that games like this Call of Duty give gamers a bad impression of terrorists. I get mad when I think about how my father died blowing up an Egyptian passenger jet for equal rights for terrorists, just to be demonized by games like Call of Duty and Ghost Recon. These games serve only to draw attention to the bombings and beheadings but don't show the other, more sensitive side, of terrorism. We're very proud of programs like our youth outreach and our Bombs for Bunkers financial stimulus plan, but you never see the positive things we do in these games."

This is not the first group to complain of being portrayed poorly in games. Some other groups who have recently protested their representation in games are: Nazis Against Stereotyping and Insults, and a Zombie Advocacy group known simply as "Mmmnnnnrrrrhh."
