Yes, it must be “Islamophobic” video games and movies. Everyone knows that it couldn’t be the Qur’an’s teachings of warfare against and subjugation of unbelievers. Oh, no.

“Iranian cleric: Ban ‘Islamophobic’ video games to stop radicalisation,” by Colin Freeman, Telegraph, April 7, 2015:
A senior Iranian cleric who acted as a peace broker over the Salman Rushdie affair has said that Britain should outlaw “Islamophobic” films and video games if it wants to prevent its Muslim youngsters becoming radicalised.
The warning has come from Ayatollah Salman Safavi, a long-time confidante of the regime, who conducted back channel talks between Britain and Iran in the wake of furore over Mr Rushdie’s novel The Satanic Verses in 1989….
