Creator Of Third-Person Shooter Where Players Stab Israeli Soldiers Tells Fans On Steam, TikTok, And Twitter: May Allah Honor Us With Martyrdom

October 15, 2021

The video game "The Knights of the Al-Aqsa Mosque," which is slated for release in December 2021, allows players to  stab, shoot, and shell IDF soldiers and vehicles, with the goal of liberating the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The developer of the game promotes his game on Steam, TikTok, Youtube, and Twitter, where he interacts with fans.

According to the International Legal Forum, a nonprofit advocacy group that confronts antisemitism claimed that this game may be a "breach of a number of U.S. anti-terrorism laws, including but not limited to, Section 2339 of the United States Code, which prohibits the providing of 'material support' or 'resources' in the preparation for, or in carrying out a violation of certain offenses, including terrorism."[1]

The following report provides an overview of the creators activity across social media platforms.

Some of the TikTok videos show behind-the-scenes content of the making of the game. One post shows the digital rendering and animation process for a Palestinian militant with a suicide vest.

A still from a video shows that some of the text in the game is written in Portuguese and English. The combat in the game is referred to as "Holy War."
