Let's think about it now. How and why would there be a minutes silence for the terrorists?. That would never happen , at least without a Tomahawk missile or three landing in the stadium stands.

Could they have been booing the violent acts, not the victims? Maybe the boos were misinterpreted? In other words, maybe they were going beyond just a moment of silence and showing support for the victims by verbally condemning the perpetrators?

Their chanting was meant to honor the victims:

I'm not sure i buy that; it could be viewed both ways. I'd personally find it offensive seeing as the attackers were Radical Muslims. That's like saying the people that want to build a Mosque at the World Trade Center site are doing it to honor the victims. I personally see it as spitting in the face of those that were killed.
Again, i could be wrong, but i see it as a bunch of Muslims glad that more 'infidels' are dead. While the Turkish don't really seem to want to get involved when it comes to the BS going on in the Middle East, They are certainly fairly anti-semetic as i know many Israeli's stopped going there for vacations due to that fact. Most aren't a fan of Western civilization in general; they just fight against it by supporting organizations such as Isis rather than get their own hands dirty.
Hell, it could be half and half, haha.

I'd also like to note that those articles are entirely speculation and both clearly state that it COULD be one of a few things; they certainly didn't interview those that chanted and ask them straight forward who they were booing; they simply suggested the possibility.

Nobody cares about these non-Europeans but now everyone is all over themselves over the dead in Paris? I can totally understand the Turks.
Everything you mentioned was too old to receive a minute of silence at these games. Except Russia, their plane blew up on the 31st of last month. For a week their football team observed a minute of silence before their games. I didn't hear about anybody booing them, which is good.

Sure the Russians honored their dead. But did anyone else? This stadium was in Turkey, not France.

I've been following the games, they are always fun. Now, I don't know if I want to even watch anymore. Hopefully, I'll snap out of it, but what a bummer.
Snap out of what?? Have you ever been to a Soccer match in Europe? Booing and violence from the stands in normal. Anyone who knows Soccer outside the US knows this to be the norm.

Is anyone suprised? Turkey is probably the most moderate muslim country in the world but it's still a muslim country.

Only the World Cup that was in France, fans were extremely nice to each other. I was pleasantly surprised because I was expecting the opposite. I have heard the fans can be horrid, some of the worst. I just didn't see it there, it was very festive. Of course, I didn't get into every game either. Anyway, it was awesome.
