Parents: Are your kids registered Steam users? I think you want to read this article from Arutz Sheva:
Steam videogame platform rife with anti-Semites discussing what it would be like to kill Jews, watchdog finds.
Radical Islamist and Neo-Nazi groups are abusing the Steam online videogame platform to spread their hate and link up with each other, according to the Campaign Against Antisemitism.
There are over 100 million Steam accounts registered around the world.
According to the CAA, over 11,000 Steam users have the account name Adolf Hitler, while a further 3,000 go by the name Osama Bin Laden. There are many thousands of other accounts which are “brazenly anti-Semitic,” the CAA added.
Anti-Semitic users also meet with fellow anti-Semites through Steam’s chat services. The CAA found that “Islamists and neo-Nazis [are] even discussing what it might be like to kill Jews in real life.”
The CAA called on Steam developer Valve Software to crack down on the anti-Semitism on its service and to ban accounts of users who spread anti-Semitism on Steam. “Finding evidence of antisemitism on Steam could not be easier, and if we can find so much of it so easier, so should Valve’s online moderators. These antisemitic users should be banned.”source
These blatantly anti-Semitic users should be banned from the Steam video platform. But sadly, the company is making incredible money, so I’m sure they are very much conflicted as they sit in their boardroom discussing this problem with their accountants.
“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows” (1 Timothy 6:10).
I felt that parents should at least know what their children are being subjected to while they are online having “fun.” They just may be influenced by the hate and become Jew haters themselves.
They may even wonder what it would be like to kill a Jew.
