So Turkey arrived in Iceland yesterday, very upset that it took so long to get from the plane and through customs, ( turkey claims 3 hours ) official flight landing times and timing of International Media and TV interviews after existing customs show it was 1 hour 5 minutes. Apparently, they requested speedy customs clearance, don't believe any of the bags should have been checked, Icelandic customs found no trace of any such request. But have pointed out that they have a random system for checking bags, irrespective of origin and owner, they also ( Lime most airports I imagine ) target bags of Interest, although there is no suggestion any Turkish bags are in that category. And shock horror some bags were opened and inspected by Customs. I travel to Iceland for most months and can confirm about 1 in 5 occasions I get stopped, a few questions, maybe 1 in 10 they look in my bag, never considered it an issue. But it seems that the biggest insult was after going through customs, a lot of News channels were trying to get interviews, all the microphones were put in front of the players, except one was not a microphone, it was a .......... Toilet Brush, https://www.middleeasteye.net/news/toilet-brush-caused-national-crisis-between-turkey-and-iceland The are was open to all tourists of all Nationalities, and the passing Belgian tourist responsible ( he admitted it was him and is concerned after getting 1000,s of death threats ) has nothing to do with Iceland. Despite that, the team and the Turkish people are claiming Iceland insulted them by delaying them through customs and pretending to interview them with a Toilet Brush. The actual facts of who was responsible for the Toilet Brush seem to be ignored, although I can't help wondering why a random passing Belgian tourist had a Toilet brush with him. Pleased to say the match just finished with Iceland 2 Turkey 1 with endless threats to anything or anyone Icelandic, including to the Iceland Food chain, and a UK based Icelandic tourist company. The Icelandic people are all quite bemused over how they have been subject to so much online and Turkish Media abuse, for not actually doing anything wrong. They Icelandic fans are good at following the team anywhere they play, but the level of threats and abuse has made some question the safety of going to Turkey. Tenerife is the most popular warm destination for Icelanders, although it was a lot Warmer in Reykjavik than in Tenerife today, Turkey is quite high on the list as well, but the number of cancellations for Holidays to Turkey has been considerable in just one day, with travel agents transferring Holiday destinations for no extra charge. All because of a Toilet Brush !!!!
