Turkish Fans Boo Moment Of Silence For Paris Victims

The Blaze’s Oliver Darcy wrote about this rather disturbing incident, which tragically shouldn’t shock some at the same time. Turkey and Greece’s soccer teams played what was described as a friendly game at the Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium stadium in Istanbul, which got off to rocky start when Turkish fans booed the moment of silence held for the victims of the Paris terrorist attack. The match was reportedly sold out and the 17,000-seat stadium was filled to capacity (via Daily Mail):

Loud jeering is audible as players from both sides stood silently in the centre circle before kick-off, with reported shouts of 'Allahu Akbar' - the Islamic phrase meaning 'God is greater' - filtering through the stands.

After the match 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.'

Meanwhile, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and Greek counterpart Alexis Tsipras watched the game together, in a sign of reconciliation between the two neighbours, whose relationship has suffered from hostilities in the past.

This is just horrible.
