rumors of terrorism false

This is a lovely post and would be wonderful news. Unfortunately, it’s just not true.

If you read the source given (which unfortunately you’ll just have to take my word that this was the source, because the person who originally posted that link has taken that post down), you’ll notice a few things:

  1. The security guard, Zouheir, was guarding the players’ tunnel – not the main gate. He knows what happened because other security guards at the gate briefed him on the situation.
  2. Zouheir is being identified by his first name because he asked to only be identified by his first name.
  3. No mention is made of Zouheir’s religious beliefs.

Check things, people. Especially when something sounds “too good to be true.” (Based on the way this post was worded, I was wondering how the security guard in question “confronted” the suicide bomber and lived to tell the tale. So I checked.) Spreading false rumors doesn’t do anybody any good.
