"The language of weapons is the most effective with the Israelis," one of the game's developers says.
A strategy video game called "The Liberation of Palestine," that features prisoner swaps, buying weapons and scoring attacks was recently featured in the Arab media. 

A group of programmers in the Gaza Strip developed the game, according to a Sky News Arabia report from October 22. While emphasizing armed strategy, the game also features historical, archaeological and religious Palestinian sites. 

"The idea is to develop the spirit of resistance among Palestinian boys and girls," one of the developers told Sky News Arabia.

"This game shows young Palestinians, or in fact all Palestinians, that mutual understandings and negotiations over plundered rights can never bring about any positive result. The language of weapons is the most effective with the Israelis," another developer said.
