A new video game from Syria is a big hit with Arab youth. In this game, the player takes the role of a young Palestinian engaged in the intifadah against Israel. He starts with stone throwing, then moves onto shooting Israeli settlers, then finally progresses to engaging the Israeli military in South Lebanon. Interestingly enough, suicide bombing is not an option. And in the game, there is no ultimate victory against the Israelis.
