Just Saudi Arabia’s national soccer team.
Two Australians were among those murdered in the latest Islamic terror attack in London. Today, Australia’s national soccer team observed a moment of silence before a qualifying match with Saudi Arabia. And then this happened. Hannah Moore, Daily Mail:
The Saudi Arabian soccer team refused to line up for a minute’s silence for the London terror victims on Thursday night because it is not in keeping with their culture…
Fans were left outraged at the display ahead of the World Cup qualifier against Australia in Adelaide.
“Sorry about your countrymen who were murdered by our co-religionists, but we don’t really do that whole thing.”
Don’t worry, though. The story has a happy ending:
