Further proof that Islam makes things suck everywhere it goes. ISIS terrorists declared soccer as ‘evil’ and decided to massacre this gathering of people watching a Real Madrid game. This is tragic:
Three Islamic State gunmen burst into a café attended by members of a local Real Madrid football fan club in central Iraq, before going on a rampage through the Shiite city of Balad, 80km north of capital Baghdad.
“A group of Islamic terrorists, from ISIS [Islamic State/IS], came into the café, armed with AK-47s, shooting at random at everyone who was inside,” Ziad Subhan, who heads the local fan organization, told Spanish website AS.
Around 50 fans were in the café, where they often gather late at night to watch live – and sometimes recorded – matches of their favorite team. The group’s Facebook page said that 16 people were killed by the gunfire and 28 more were seriously injured. Police also confirmed the incident, but gave numbers of at least 13 killed and 22 injured.
Here were the victims:

Photographs from the al-Furat Cafe show a poster of Real Madrid icon and current manager Zinedine Zidane, and below a blood-splattered floor, including trails where bleeding victims attempted to crawl away from the shooters.
