On Saudi Footballers Refusal to Honour One Minutes Silence

“The question is not why didn’t the Saudi football team observe the minute silence. More pertinent question is why only western victims get this sort of formal recognition? As for the far greater numbers of victims across Asia and Africa they only get a “Meh”. When was the last time the countless killed in Syria or Burma or CAR got a minute silence? Selective commemoration to match the selective moral outrage.”
