A group of young Palestinians launched a new video game application for Android phones to ‘counter Israeli attempts to Judaise’ the Muslim sites inside the Old City of Jerusalem.
‘Protector of Al-Aqsa’, launched by Burj Al-Luqluq Social Center Society in early February, simulates Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock.
It is designed to introduce the mosque to the application users by allowing them to wander inside and outside it.
Mohamed Saleh, the coordinator of Burj Al-Luqluq Social Center Society, indicated: “We are trying to take advantage of children’s attraction to electronic games. We intend to take them on tour inside Al-Aqsa Mosque, and to introduce them to its different sites, as the game requires each player to answer specific questions about the mosque to obtain the guardian rank.”
