Team claims observance not part of Saudi culture

The Saudi Arabian national soccer team refused to participate in a moment of silence for victims of the jihad massacre in London at the start of their World Cup qualifying match in Australia.

While the Australian players and coaches lined up with arms linked in a show of solidarity and respect for the moment, the Saudis can be seen walking around the field and continuing their pre-game preparations in an apparent rejection of the symbolic gesture.

The Saudis were notified that the observance would take place, but declined to take part in it, saying it is ‘not part of Saudi culture.’

“The FFA sought agreement from the Asian Football Confederation and the Saudi national team to hold a minute’s silence in memory of those lost in Saturday night’s terror bombings in London and in particular the two Australian women,” said a spokesman for the Football Federation Australia. “Both the AFC and the Saudi team agreed that the minute of silence could be held.”

“The FFA was further advised by Saudi team officials that this tradition was not in keeping with Saudi culture and they would move to their side of the field and respect our custom whilst taking their own positions on the field.”

The Saudi team is composed primarily of Muslims.

Incensed fans and viewers took to social media to air their outrage at the insult.

According to one Twitter user, Saudi fans were also yelling during the silence.

“Minutes silence for the London terror, Saudi players wandering around like they don’t give a f***, Saudi fans shouting the whole,” he wrote.

Jihadists took the lives of eight innocents in London on Saturday night, including two Australian women, aged 21 and 28, one of whom was a nurse and the other an au pair. Two more Australians were among the nearly 50 injured.
