The mother of a Chicago eighth grader claims her son is being taunted and bullied by other students who turned a video game into a vile anti-Semitic vehicle which they are using to insult and threaten her son because he is Jewish.

Ogden International School is a Chicago public school serving the North side of Chicago. As an international school, it prides itself on immersing students “in a rich and safe environment to obtain awareness of foreign cultures,” and encourages them to develop “skills necessary for global citizenship and competency.”

CBS local news in Chicago, however, reported that, according to the mother of a Jewish student, a group of students at the school turned the video game app “Clash of Clans” into a vicious anti-Semitic game.

Clash of Clans is a two year old iPad/iPhone/iPod/Android video strategy game created by Supercell. Players can construct and expand their village, unlock successively more powerful warriors and defenses, raid and pillage goods from other villages, and create and join clans.

Some eighth graders at Ogden International, however, allegedly created a team called the “Jew Incinerator Clan.” The complaining mother reported that those students also posted racist goals.

The Chicago news station reported that administrators from the Chicago Public Schools acknowledged that a complaint had been brought.

“Chicago Public Schools is serious about providing safe learning environments for its students and does not tolerate any acts of bullying. School administration and district officials are aware of the concerns and are investigating,” CPS said in a statement.

The mother of the child being bullied said that two of the problematic students had written apology letters, but other students ignored the complaint.

“It’s disturbing,” says the parent, who asked that her identity be concealed. “They’re using a game as a catalyst to truly spread hate.”

  1. If there is such a group and it can be verified who are in the named group, they all should simply be expelled and have to go to a regular public school..

  2. Scott Soffen says:

  10. It’s disgusting, this is what happens when a government supports terrorist and condemns the peaceful and moral.

  11. Hank Lukas says:

    Little dummies.

  12. Awful! Horrible! Unbelievably disgusting!

  13. Hank Lukas says:

    The parents probably taught them.

  14. Children emulate what they see and hear from their parents maybe their parents need some education

  15. Wth is wrong with those kids? Why is it discrimination if it’s anybody but the Jewish people? Same thing here in Canada, we white folks can’t scream discrimination but everybody else can (something about a reverse discrimination law) – ugh – poor Jews. A Jew incinerator clan game sounds outrageous and horrible. Really!

  16. DISGRACEFUL AND JUST PLAIN STUPID.

  17. His is so sick, just get the maker off that programme and the teachers of the school that allowed it.

  18. This is truly appalling!

  19. Maria Patti says:

    disgusting!!! It should not be allowed. That is bullying.

  20. Carol Tiley says:

    This is just unthinkable and unacceptable! What are these children being taught! Then they blame the Guns for the lack of parenting or lack of control over what children are viewing or spending their time and energy on. Where are the parents!

  21. I went to a religious school & I knew as soon as I saw this it was a public school, no matter how dressed up. Overpaid asministrators guarding their jobs, scared teachers, whose hands are tied, nobody to turn to. No moral, ethical teaching. Not impressed.

  22. that is the most disgusting thing I have seen today.

  23. Patti Smart says:

    Obama’s home state…soooo, now u know…

  24. These IGNORANT PUNKS should just be expelled and sent to Juvi.

  25. Rips my heart out. That is the future generation. What do you think they will be like in ten or fifteen years..

  26. Hey parents what the hell are you either sayin at home or teaching your kids? Older siblings are you listening too? Wake up and smell reality! This is acceptable maybe……maybe…..no not there ……. Nope there either…….not even there! That leaves ..uh…..NOWHERE!?

  27. Jose Torres says:

    This is sickening.

  28. Saying you’re chosen is part of the problem, nobody is superior to another group

  29. Oh, wait, this is CHICAGO. Home of Obama. If Obama had sons they’d be playing this game…

  30. Just make an eighth grader incinerator video game.

  31. Those who abuse Jews better be careful.

  32. Pollock children?Let’s have them identified, their background and religion/church. These things are not done by anonymous, guiltless people.

  33. You mean Polish children,right? Pollock is a derogitory term. Like Gook,Putz and Shlemiel

  34. Heather Thompson says:

    Very true, Nitza. Children grow up assuming that their parents behavior is correct….until someone teaches them otherwise, and even then it's hard to change what kids have heard their whole lives. Disturbing and shameful that there is still so much hate in the world.

  35. scumbags! it never ends; that’s why we are stronger and more resilient than most! it comes from thousands of years of persecution and being ostracized!

  36. Of course no publicity… It’s not a case of police brutality, a shooting and (big shocker) noone cares about our rights! Just makes me want to raise my Israeli flag even higher in my yard! Sick of antisemitic idiots who know, not ONE Jew…yet hate us. Grrr.

  37. That is hate. We r teaching children how to hate Jews. That is sorry.

  38. Who, exactly, is the "you" in your sentence?

  39. shoot them with all their friends and family one by one. see how funny they find it.

  40. Seth Miller says:

    Ignorance teaches ignorance. What a terrible shame!

  41. @ David Martinez BRO read your Bible yes God CHOOSES and YES the Jews are God’s chosen we Gentiles were grafted in yes many are called but few are chosen.

  42. No child is born a hater, it is taught. I live in San Francisco, and as I was riding the bus, there were high school kids in the back. Though I couldn't quite hear what one of them said, one of the others replied, "Hitler should have killed them all." That was bad enough, but when I looked to see who said that, I was shocked because they were all Asian. A demographic that I truly wouldn't have expected would say such a thing.

  43. Alan Kardon says:

    Were these Asians from the country that gave us Pearl Harbor on 12/7/1941

  44. I would like to know the ethnic identity of the game players.

  45. Pnina Sugar says:

    Maybe this is a message to send her child to a Jewish school. There are many to choose from in Chicago.

  46. Judith Dowla says:

    And unfortunately even the innocent can be on the reaping end because they are near by.

  47. Judith Dowla says:

    Phil Silverman Generically speaking I have been led to understand that the word “you“ can mean collectively a group of people without naming them specifically. Does this make any sense whatsoever to you. Hope so.

  48. Bailey Karr says:

    that school must use this example to improve their curriculum perhaps some sociologist psychologist and educators could devise an experimental environment to demonstrate the end results of such hateful behavior

  49. What about a games where anti-semites get a good kicking …. Amen to that

  50. Look at stats for sales of Protocols in Japan.

  51. This should not be taken lightly. These 8th graders should be be taken to the Holocaust Museum and stand in the actual Box Car they have from Germany. The other displays show what the horror was like but sadly I think 8 th grade bullies have under developed brains. I would love to tell them of my Mothers misery traveling with her family to the camps.

  52. Nana Loue says:

    How come Jews are so hated everywhere they go?

  53. Yafa Talisse says:

    Please come show your support at Ogdens west campus at 430. They school has known about this for 6 months and has ignored it – one parent even stated ' boys will be boys' !

  54. Yafa Talisse says:

    This article doesn't even begin to explain the situation. Please look at my timeline on Facebook for further details. Hope to see you tomorrow. We can't ignore this
