Default Call of Duty Under Religious Fire

All the turmoil in the middle east seems to be overflowing into the world of video games. Shack News has reported that the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map 'Favela' and the re-release of 'Favela' in a Modern Warfare 3 DLC has been pulled from normal rotation for a texture "mishap" that quotes the phrase "Allah is beautiful and He loves beauty,". This isn't an inflammatory remark in unto itself. However the phrase's location in the level itself has been called into question. Some people apparently found it offensive that Allah was mentioned in a picture frame located in the level's bathroom.

To avoid any backlash from the Muslim community Infinity Ward promptly pulled the level and is scouring the rest of the game for the texture to be patched out in the near future. "We apologize to anyone who found this image offensive," Activision said in a statement. "Please be assured we were unaware of this issue and that there was no intent to offend." Activision also said, "Activision and our development studios are respectful of diverse cultures and religious beliefs, and sensitive to concerns raised by its loyal game players. We thank our fans for bringing this to our attention." and our development studios are respectful of diverse cultures and religious beliefs, and sensitive to concerns raised by its loyal game players.
