Turkey soccer fans chant "Allahu akbar" in moment of silence for Paris attack victims

Rate this post

The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), Europe’s governing soccer body, requested that all European international games hold a minute of silence before the start of their matches and wear black armbands to honor the victims of the recent Paris attacks.
Today’s (Nov. 17) Greece vs. Turkey friendly soccer match in Istanbul did just that.
Instead of observing the one minute of silence, however, the mainly Turkish fans in the stadium booed and chanted “Allahu akbar”.

Turkey is a Muslim country — the same country whose president and former prime minister Recep Erdoğan famously said: “A moderate Islam is an oxymoron because there is no such thing as a ‘moderate Islam’.” (source: Telegraph)
The Turkey-Greece soccer game was not the only European match where the minute of silence was interrupted.
Douglas Zimmerman reports for SFGate (San Francisco Chronicle) that at the Ireland-Bosnia Euro 2016 playoff game yesterday, a Bosnian fan disrupted the moment of silence yelling “Palestine, Palestine.”
According to Source, a Bosnian news website, the shouter was later beaten up by other Bosnian supporters. An eyewitness told Source: “I don’t know the guy, don’t know his name. I know that he was drunk and that he was the only one who disrupted the moment of silence chanting ‘Palestine, Palestine’. Some of our fans ran into him at the hotel after that game and asked him if he was the one who was shouting. He said he was, raising his voice. Then our fans hit him a couple of times.”

  1. My closest friend in 1966 was a fellow who’d just gotten out of the US Army Intelligence [you don’t need his name for background, but he was career military, as his dad was a life-long Marine who served in the old China], and spent his time inside Turkey’s border, monitoring Russian signals.
    All I can say about Turkey is that it has been an historical problem since forever, back to Roman times, and we should NEVER entirely trust its politicians: they are always scrambling to get traction amongst too diverse a bunch of factions, same as Pakistan, another losing proposition that deserves no respect, IMO.
    Readers, please take the time to read and research history: it is usually a good indicator of what we can expect! Isn’t this what makes Eo as good as she is: a military historian accustomed to research in great depth.

  3. They didn’t say how many participated in this barbaric chanting, I pray it was a small isolated crowd. It is deplorable any way you want to look at it.
    To think so many innocent young people died in such a heinous manner and they have zero respect. Proves two cultures so different in everything will have a hard time co-existing.

  4. So why didn’t Greece leave immediately?…. why didn’t Ireland walk out? What is the matter with these people…when I hear someone say Allahu akbar, I’d get the heck out of there.

  5. how do you co-exist with a people who’s mindset is: convert, pay taxes, or die? islam doesn’t assimilate; islam procreates.
    For EU to continue allowing “refugees” to pass its borders is national, cultural and ethnic suicide.

    • “For EU to continue allowing “refugees” to pass its borders is national, cultural and ethnic suicide.”
      Isn’t it just, though? And while the people reject these, their leaders are ‘Gung ho!’ so much so one wonders how this can be. Angela Merkel has finally been outed as the closet commie –or at least sympathiser– that she was raised to be.

  6. Amen to that,Mom;THAT’S why Obama’s pushing so hard for this!

  7. Almost forgot-“Aloha Snackbar”.

  8. Yeah, ya gotta love those “moderate” mooooooooooooooooooooslims.
    So where’s our mooooooooooooooooooooslim apologist telling us that most mooooooooooooooooslims don’t support terrorism?
    Like hell they don’t.

  9. What more do we need to know about the core nature of muslims? If you find that majority of peace loving muslims, please let us know. We’ve been searching for them for years.
