I think Isis and Hamas are very different.

"During the war in Gaza, a smartphone game that invited players to 'Bomb Gaza' was taken down by Google from its Play Store after a public backlash. Canadian filmmaker John Greyson decided to respond to the game, using the idea to put the Gaza bombing into context for Canadians. He produced a video that looks like the game and imposes the map of Gaza over the city of Toronto to show what a bombing campaign would look like in North America: Gazonto"

(Reuters) - The United States expressed concern on Wednesday about reports that Israel had moved forward plans for settlements in East Jerusalem, warning the move would call into question Israel's commitment to peace with the Palestinians.

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the step would also send a "troubling message" if the Israeli government proceeded with tenders and construction.

"This development will only draw condemnation from the international community, distance Israel from even its closest allies, poison the atmosphere not only with the Palestinians but also with the very Arab governments with which Prime Minister (Benjamin) Netanyahu said he wanted to build relations," Psaki told a briefing.

In addition, it would "call into question Israel's ultimate commitment to a peaceful negotiated settlement," she added.

Netanyahu after U.S. criticism: Jerusalem construction ‘not settlements’ — JNS.org

From the article:

The Orthodox Union (OU) on Thursday said it rejects the "harsh statements by the Obama administration" on Israeli construction.

"First, [the administration's statements] suggest that the onus for the peace process impasse is upon Israel, when in fact it is decades of Palestinian and Arab rejectionism and incitement (such as that voiced by Palestinian President Abbas at the U.N. General Assembly last week) that 'poisons the atmosphere' for peace," said Nathan Diament, the OU's executive director for public policy. "Israel has demonstrated its interest in peace, not merely through words but through deeds, time and again."

"Second, suggesting that Jews residing in neighborhoods of Jerusalem—the historic capital of Israel and the Jewish people—is 'provocative' is offensive," Diament continued. "It is also fundamentally at odds with the notion that differences over Jerusalem are to be resolved in negotiations. ... Finally, the implied threat that Jewish residence in Jerusalem will 'distance Israel from even its closest allis'—i.e.: the United States—is a resort to rhetoric which is entirely unacceptable."
