Arabic Rappelz Is A No Smoking Zone

The Arabic version of the MMORPG, Rappelz, will feature anti-smoking messages to celebrate this year's 'World No Tobacco Day'.

Arabic Rappelz was the first MMORPG to be published in the Middle East and North Africa. Developer Game World 7 aims to promote human development values through its games, and under the motto "Let's Make Arabic Rappelz a smoking-Free World", it hopes to mark the first virtual world celebration of this event.

the point is:

arabs are good people and muslims r the only cure to this cursed world, as islam does not encourage/forbids any bad habits to the health or spirit!

and poor arabs always accused as extremist and terrorist while arab world is living under terror every day by USA and by the arab tyrants supported by the USA and the west!!!

and when arabs makes something good, no one pay attention to them, the west only pay attention when its something bad about arabs/muslims!

verb3k3365d ago

Western propaganda machines demonized the Muslims in the sight of the average person. Arabs and Muslims are the most oppressed people in the world.

Do you know the US is sucking oil from Iraq 24/7?
Do you know that they plan to cut the Arab world into smaller countries to be easier to control?

The Western people are really programmed and controlled by the media. THEY DON'T KNOW THE TRUTH.

Explain this to me:

1. Muslims must instill terror into non-Muslims (Koran 8:12) as Mohammed said, "I've been made victorious through terror" (Bukhari 4:52:220).
2. Non-Muslims (Infidels) are sworn enemies (inveterate foes) of Muslims and Islam. (Koran 4:101)
3. Muslims' have the holy right, authority, and requirement to kill non-Muslims. (Koran 9:5 - known as the "Verse of the Sword").
4. Infidels (non-Muslims) are forbidden from killing Muslims (Koran 4:92).
5. Muslims are forbidden from having non-Muslims as friends. (Koran 5:51).
6. Muslims offer non-Muslims 3 choices regarding religion (Koran 9:29): 1. convert 2. die 3. be persecuted as 2nd class citizens (Dhimmis) and pay extortion tax (Jizya).
7. Muslims can lie to non-Muslims to advance Islam and this is called Taqiyya (Koran 3:28, 16:106).
8. Muslims can omit the truth to non-Muslims to advance Islam and this is called Kitman.
9. Muslims believe they are the best (Koran 3:110) and non-Muslims are the vilest of creatures and deserve NO mercy (Koran 98:6).
10. 9/11 was justified by the "Kill AND be killed for Allah verse" (Koran 9:111).

11. Mohammed (51) married his favorite wife Aisha at 6. The marriage was consummated when he was 54 and she was 9.
12. Muslim men can marry anyone, up to 4 wives. Muslim women must ONLY marry Muslim men (4:3) thereby ensuring Islam does not weaken.
13. Only Mohammed had permission from Allah to marry as many wives as he wanted to (Koran 33:50).
14. Allah ordered Mohammed to marry his beautiful daughter-in-law called Zaynab bint Jahsh (Koran 33:37), yet cursed his aunt and uncle to hell (Koran entire Chapter 111).
15. Marriage AND divorce to pre-pubescent girls (not yet having 1st menstruation) is OK. (Koran 65:4)
16. Sex Slaves (concubines) were, and are today, legal in Islam (Koran 4:23-24).
17. Domestic Violence is OK, not husband beating, but only wife beating and sex slave beating, (Koran 4:34).
Chapter 4 is called Women and goes into great detail about how women and girls should be treated and mistreated.
18. To prove rape in Islamic law or Sharia law, Muslim females need four male Muslim witnesses in good standing (Koran 24:13).
Note: non-Muslims under Sharia (Islamic) law can't even accuse Muslims of any crimes.
19. Islamic heaven is an unlimited whorehouse of regenerating virgins (Koran 37:40-48, 44:51-55, 52:17-20, 55:56-58, 70-77, 56:7-40, and 78:31).
20. Islamic heaven also allows sodomy of young boys (Koran 52:24, 56:17, and 76:19).

21. Beheading is OK (Koran 47:4, 8:12) Mohammed personally help behead between 600 - 900 Qurayza Jews in Medina in 627 A.D. in one day.
22. Robbery and Theft of non-Muslim property is OK (The entire Chapter 8 of the Koran is known as Booty or Spoils).
23. Muslims that leave Islam (apostacy) MUST be killed. (Bukhari 4:52:260) Quoting Mohammed: "...if a Muslim discards his religion, kill him."
24. Mohammed is considered the ideal man to be imitated by Muslims, yet sinful. (Qur'an 47:21 and Qur'an 110)
25. The Koran has 114 Chapters called Surahs and is not presented in chronological order, but chapter length order, from longest (Chapter 1) to shortest (Chapter 114).
26. Many verses in the Koran conflict, so the concept of abrogation (Koran 2:106) applies. This means, later occurring verses make cancel out the earlier verses.
AGAIN: earlier verses may be in a later chapter as the chapters are not presented in chronological order, but in order of size, larger to smaller.
27. The last chapter written in the Koran, Chapter 9, is extremely violent. It is also the only chapter of 114 that does not start off with the blessing "In the name of G*d, the Compassionate, the Merciful."
28. Muslims are forbidden from doubting that the Koran is the actual word of Allah, "This book is not to be doubted." (Koran 2:1)
29. There are more than 100 verses in the Koran urging Muslims to make war against non-Muslims.
30. Even man's best friend (dogs) aren't safe in Islam, as Mohammed had many killed because the "angel Gabriel" didn't enter houses with dogs and/or pictures. (Bukhari 4:448)

I condone anti-smoking advertising in MMO's, but you have it all wrong. Oppressed? I would NEVER live in a Muslim country unless I wanted all of my freedoms taken away and live as a second class citizen. Let freedom reign and spew your agenda somewhere else.

this is to show how idiot u r. i will answer to only one of ur points which is the first one and show u u know nothing and u take things out of its context, and the rest 29 points r the same, u need to read the context.

answering ur first point:
1: that verse was in the context and u would need to read from verse 8:1 till verse 8:12 to know why God said he will put fear into the non muslims.
the answer is this: those non muslims r the ones who killed the muslims in the early islam in mecca, when the muslims were weak, they killed them and tortured them and drove them out of their homes, the early muslims had to leave their homes and families and property and everything in mecca when they traveled to madina! and who cause all this suffering??? the non muslims arabs at that time and at that place!!!

if u r considering any non-muslims word in quran is referring to all humans non muslims then u must also believe that all those non-muslims world wide was killing their daughters and doing all sins, and being uncivilized and being murderers and being rapers and being torturers.
and answering for the bukhari of prophet mohamed speech of terror: in that same line, it is also mention that prophet mohamed terrorized his and islam enemies, so to use that word that he use terror like how u used it was out of context, he used terror against his enemies which they were fighting islam and muslims every where!! and in all earthly and heavenly laws people can fight and terrorize their enemies!!! other wise how does victory comes?? unless u wipe out all the enemy and their families too!!

this is the complete context of which prophet mohamed spoke of terror:
Allah's Apostle said, "I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand." Abu Huraira added: Allah's Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).

so i debunked one of ur false accusation and i know i can do the same to the rest but i wont bother, one is enough, and my time is not worth someone like u who dont know what is he copy pasting!!!!!

I hope the rest of the world catches on to this idea :)

While I do smoke on occasion (read: when drinking) I think this is a great initiative. It would have even better impact if WoW took it up.

Should shut up all the voices saying gaming is bad for you. It encourages you to not smoke :) (well, for one day at least)

Cogo3366d ago

If WoW had a similar day with some sound ideas behind, it could definitely be a huge thing. The 10 (or whatever) million loyal players they have would probably gulp up all the non-smoking quests and (positive) propaganda.

The Rappelz initiative is great, but to a limited audience.

SCFreelancer3366d ago

Not so sure what to think of lobbying for real world issue inside MMO games.

Leord3366d ago

I see it more as taking some responsibility :)

Cogo3366d ago

While smoking lobbyists sometimes are quite bad, anti-smoking people tend to be a lot more "rabid" and with less regard for other people. They are driven by a "cause" instead of the monthly salary of the smoking lobbyists.

Just because they fight for a good cause doesn't mean they do it right, unfortunately.

I approve of this initiative, however. :)

Medievaldragon3366d ago

Nice how developers add real life stuff in the games. Makes them more realistic. Although some people don't like in-game ads, no doubt gives them a special touch. I remember when playing Hellgate: London demo -- I would always stop to take a look at the posters on the train stations.

Cogo3366d ago

I agree. HGL was an example where it was done just right.
