Why is Call of Duty so anti-Israel
I have been playing Call of Duty ever since Modern Warfare came out on the Xbox 360 so many years ago, hence I’m a hard-core fan and a qualified expert on the series. I loved playing as heroes like John Price and Alex Mason while taking out some noobs in Nuketown.
Now that I’m older and wiser my feelings towards the series has changed when I noticed something unforgivable. The series has had a hidden anti-Israel bias ever since the release of Modern Warfare. I know it sounds crazy at first but here me out since I’m Jewish and thus an expert on the matter.
Evidence #1 Bad Guys use Israeli Weapons
Video games make it easy to tell who are the good guys and who are the bad guys. Good guys use M16’s while the bad guys use AK-47’s. Its a simple set up but Activsion wants to add some diversity to the weapons rooster. This make since so good guys get NATO weapons while bad guys should get more Russian weapons.
Yet in practice, the bad guys also use a lot of Israeli weapons. Think about; during The Coup in Modern Warfare, you’re being escorted by enemy soldiers armed with Uzi’s and it ends with Khaled Al-Asad executing you with a Desert Eagle. In Modern Warfare 2, the Russian soldiers who are invading America are also equipped with IWI Tavor. In Black Ops, Cuban soldiers and the NVA are using the Israeli version of the FN FAL while the Viet Cong has a good supply of IMI Galil ARM. Finally in Ghosts, the IMI Micro Tavor seems to be the standard weapons for the special forces of the Federation.
The message is obvious, Activision is trying to tell Americans that bad guys also use Israeli weapons along side the AK-47. They are feeding the ISIS and Hezbollah propaganda that Israel is threat to world peace. Good job Activision, you are supporting ISIS propaganda!
Evidence #2 No Israeli Flag Tags
Try making a custom gamer tag in any Call of Duty game with an Israeli flag, go ahead and try! Notice that they allow gamers to use flags from every country in the world except for the flag of Israel? Citizens of Israel have to deal with this prejudice every day but now video games have become a battle ground with this hateful debate. By not featuring the flag, Activision is clearly saying to the world that they feel Israel is not a real country.
It’s obvious that Call of Duty is secretly trying to spread anti-Israel propaganda to the masses and its a shame that they have not been called out on it. I encourage Israeli and Jewish games to stand up and demand Activsion to stop promoting anti-Israel propaganda among its community!
