Saudi Team Refuses to Stand to Honor London Terror Attack Victims

The Saudi Word Cup Soccer Team refused to stand to honor the victims of the London Terror attack.

The Saudi Arabian World Cup Team has sparked outrage after refusing to stand in silence to honor those who died in the London terrorist attacks. A spokesperson for the team issued a statement that said “It wasn’t in their culture.”
Saudi Arabia was playing Australia Thursday morning. Two Australian women died in the Islamist attack last weekend. To pay respect, a minute’s silence was planned in their honor. As it began, the Saudi players stood in their playing position instead of lining up. The players on the bench remained seated, refusing to stand in respect:

Many are outraged over the incident, some try to defend the outrageous actions by claiming “This isn’t how Muslims honor the dead. ” Shia imam Sheikh Mohammad Tawhidi gave the Mail the best explanation:

“They did not stop for a moment of silence because according to Wahhabi Islam – which governs Saudi Arabia – it is not wrong or a sin for a Muslim to kill a non-Muslim. In their eyes, the attackers are martyrs who are going to paradise. If they stand for a minute of silence, they are against their Muslim brothers who fought for jihad and fought the ‘infidels’.” – Sheikh Mohammad Tawhidi

Tawhidi did note that all players might not share the same view, however, they would have been ridiculed in Saudi Arabia had they commemorated the victims of the London terror attacks.

Everyday normal, peaceful Muslims, the good ones. Ridiculing their athletes for paying respect to victims of terrorism, and why? Because it was their “Brothers” waging war on the “infidels”.
If that isn’t extremism, I don’t know what is…
