Following are excerpts from a news report on how Lebanese Forces incorporate anti-Islamic slogans into the computer game “Counter Strike.” The report aired on Al-Manar TV on October 4, 2010.

Reporter: The Lebanese Forces have left their mark on the Counter Strike computer game, pointing directly at the target: the liberation of Lebanon from Islam, and especially from what they refer to as “the Islamic Satan.”

In this popular game, the player tries to kill the enemy, and when he wipes him out, a slogan appears on his body. The slogan is sprayed with a spray-can, and it can be customized. The game’s designers have enabled the players to choose their own slogans, through several simple steps.

The Lebanese Forces, on their official website, which bears their official logo, have made the mission easier for the players. It has selected several targets, marking them with slogans on a designated page on its website. They explain, at the top of the page, that the slogan can be changed by spraying. The first slogan chosen by the Lebanese Forces is “Free Lebanon from the Islamic Satan (sic).” This was written on a pointed cross associated with the Lebanese Forces. At the bottom of the page, the Lebanese Forces placed a tool, enabling the player to select a slogan and install it in the game.
