Can you guess which country is behind it?

Clue: They are really very peaceful and civil.

An Iranian website that specializes in electronic games has released a game named “Beat Up and Insult the Arab” and made the game available for free download.

The site that released the game is allegedly registered at the country’s center for regulating Iranian websites, which is linked to the Ministry of Culture and Guidance. It introduces itself as an entertainment site that operates based on the rules of the Islamic Republic. On the site, it states that it will remove any content that violates Islamic laws.

The game consists of two parts; the first is called “feed the Arab,” and the second is called “beat up the Arab,” and includes references to Gulf Arabs.

Many Ahwazi Arabs, whom the Islamic Republic legally considers Iranian citizens, commented on the game on social media, labelling it as racist regardless of which exact Arabs the game intends to poke fun at.
