Angry birds; angrier Arabs.

“Angry birds [the video game called Angry Birds] is brilliant because it touches several of our most basic impulses. The player flings birds from a slingshot and tries to destroy various structures and kill the pigs within. It's a basic hunting metaphor, and pigs are a symbol for food in Western cultures. That part is obvious. The less obvious part of the addiction is the joy of destroying structures that are man-made. I believe this taps into our basic need to tear down the accomplishments of others in order to feel better about ourselves. It's Shadenfreude - the satisfaction or pleasure we get from the misfortune of others. Someone unknown built those structures, and presumably they would be unhappy to know you knocked them down. The game would be far less satisfying if you were destroying trees or other natural creations.”

I'm not a gamer. The only video game I ever tried was Pong, back when computing required job control instructions, software, and data input, all submitted to a big-iron mainframe via punched cards. I am sure this makes no sense at all to today's gamers.
But there is a non-video game that's a favorite in the Arab middle east today, which has its roots in the dark ages: the Angry-Arabs game. This game has imaginary goals but very real consequences, all of which are deadly. The imaginary goals involve an allocation of virgins-in-the-sky, in return for homicidal mayhem perpetrated by angry Arabs against Israeli Jews, the latter having created, by sheer inspiration and tenacious perspiration, an oasis of modernity in the midst of seventh-century depravity.
Like its video counterpart, the Angry-Arabs game offers visceral joy to its enthusiasts. They not only get to murder and maim those whose accomplishments they envy, but they also win favorable status among their bloodthirsty peers, as well as the anticipation of sexual favors from those virgins they've been having wet dreams about ever since their raging hormones kicked in.
The most disgusting aspect of this medieval depravity is the perverse insistence of Jew-hating enablers in the West that this homicidal game is merely an expression of protest for just grievances.
