Human rights aren’t a thing in Saudi Arabia, but turns out soccer is. The royal crapdom has a national team that recently played in the World Cup Qualifiers against Australia. Before the match started, a moment of silence was held for those who recently fell victim to Islamic terrorism in London.
Naturally, it was rather awkward. I’m sure you can guess why…
The Saudi Arabian football team were booed by Australian supporters after they failed to properly line up for a minute’s silence in honour of the victims of the London Bridge terror attacks.
According to Adam Peacock, who works as a presenter for Fox Sports in Australia, the Asian Football Confederation approved the minute’s silence against the wishes of Saudi Arabia. He said The Football Federation of Australia were then unable to persuade Saudi Arabian officials to agree to participate in the tribute.
Reports suggest that the visitors’ substitutes bench also failed to stand to observe the tribute.
This should come as no surprise to those familiar with Islamic countries’ ways. In fact, one might even consider this rude gesture rather tame compared to Islam’s track record (read EVIL: Muslims Openly CELEBRATE Terror Attack on Tel Aviv, Israel). As mentioned above, the Saudis in particular aren’t all too concerned with things like the loss of human lives (see Transgenders are Tortured, Killed by Saudi Arabian Police. American Leftists Silent… and Saudi Arabian Prince Who Helped Create ISIS Now Calls for Mass Genocide…).
I can already hear the stampede of leftists clamoring about “Cultural differences!!!” and whatnot. Fair enough. For the Middle Eastern team itself, honoring dead people isn’t so much a priority as is winning. Which they didn’t. Australia won 3-2. At least we have that. SA not only made themselves out to look like bags of douche, but they couldn’t even win the match. Chalk it up to the will of Allah.
It all comes back to this…
