Saudi Arabia Ignores Minutes Silence for ISIS Victims
Saudi Arabia should be banned from the World Cup after they refused to line up for minute’s silence in honor of the London terror attack victims.
The all Muslim team claimed afterwards it is ‘not in keeping with their culture’
Saudi team warm up as Australia observe tribute at World Cup qualifier in Adelaide which of course Australia won the match 3-2, the Saudi team are certainly better at being terrorist sympathizers than they are at football.
Everyone was shocked at the Muslim’s behavior, players and officials joined the Muslim fans in mocking the the attack in what was obviously a show of support for the terrorists.
Fans were outraged at the behavior of the Saudi’s would not participate in the tribute to the eight people killed in London when three Muslim terrorists struck on Saturday night.
While the Australian teamed solemnly bowed their heads and the crowd stood to reflect, the Saudi side were having a bit of fun trotting around and mocking the show of respect.
Not one of the all Muslim support staff, not the substitutes or the coaching staff on the bench paid their respects, the Saudi supporters were equally as disgusting shouting throughout the supposed period of silence.
The Football Federation of Australia wanted to pay their respects to the fallen in London, the victims included two Australian nationals.

The FFA said they were told before the game that the Saudi’s planned to not take part in the tribute.
Saudi Wahhabism is the Driving Force of ISIS
The Wahhabi mission started as a revivalist movement in the remote, arid region of Najd. With the collapse of the Ottoman Empire after World War I, the Al Saud dynasty, and with it Wahhabism, spread to the holy cities of Mecca and Medina. After the discovery of petroleum near the Persian Gulf in 1939, it had access to oil export revenues, revenue that grew to billions of dollars. This money – spent on books, media, schools, universities, mosques, scholarships, fellowships, lucrative jobs for journalists, academics and Islamic scholars – gave Wahhabism a “preeminent position of strength” in Islam around the world.
In Saudi Arabia the country of Wahhabism’s founding – and by far the largest and most powerful country where it is the state religion – Wahhabi ulama gained control over education, law, public morality and religious institutions in the 20th century, while permitting as a “trade-off” doctrinally objectionable actions such as the import of modern technology and communications, and dealings with non-Muslims, for the sake of the consolidation of the power of its political guardian, the Al Saud dynasty.
