The original title was “Apple Breaks Own Rules and Allows Anti-Israel Game Into App Store.” So if anyone out there believes that Heat Street doesn’t suck Israel’s dick like most of the rest of the world, you can suck mine.
Apple’s stepped in the political mud once again with its decision to block and then accept a pro-Palestinian, anti-Israeli game into its app store. Apple first attempted to say the game was not a game, but then backed down after online pressure.
The game Liyla & The Shadows of War lets you play as a Gazan fleeing Israeli rockets in the 2014 Israel-Gaza conflict. Some of the controversial elements in the game include fictionalized scenes depicting an Israeli battleship blowing a group of children to bits with a missile and an Israeli missile targeting an ambulance.
Apple first tried to get the game classified in “News and Noteworthy,” as the company tries to avoid political controversy in its gaming section. -Heat Street
I applaud Apple’s courage (?) in releasing a game that is much like many other games out there which use situations in life to demonstrate said life in the form of a game.
