Turkey: Soccer fans boo moment of silence for Paris, chant ‘Allahu Akbar’

Turkish fans booed during the minute’s silence for the victims of the Paris attacks before their soccer team played Greece in an  international on Tuesday.

With the Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and his Turkish counterpart Ahmet Davutoglu in attendance, the 17,000 sellout crowd of Turks voiced their opposition of support for France in the wake of the murder of 129 people at the hands of Islamic State terrorists.

Instead of grace and compassion, the crowd turned to chants of ‘Allahu Akbar’ Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium.

The friendly itself against Greece was largely forgettable as the action finished 0-0 at the Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium.

Turkey manager Fatih Terim was quoted as saying: “Our fans should have behaved during the national anthems and during the one-minute silence.

“Greece is our neighbour. Today is world neighbours day, but our fans didn’t behave like neighbours in this match.”

The minute’s silence was also observed before Asian Football Confederation World Cup qualifying matches, including matches across Europe, including at Wembley where France faced England.

President Obama said after the Paris attacks that “This is an attack not just on Paris, it’s an attack not just on the people of France, but this is an attack on all of humanity and the universal values that we share.”

Residents in Turkey sound like they agree more with Islamic State than the citizens of France.
