The Swords of Iron War following the terror attack on Israeli communities surrounding the Gaza Strip have deeply strained the relationship between Liverpool and many of its fans in Israel. What began with a moment of silence conveying a neutral message ("The heinous and cruel acts against innocent civilians") escalated with the removal of a flag bearing the names of four fans who were murdered on October 7 - Roee Munder, Yuval Yoffe, Netta Epstein, and Ori Tchernichovsky.
On Sunday, before the league match between Liverpool and Brentford, the club management released a matchday program featuring the names of the Israeli fans in its official weekly program ahead of the 12th fixture in the Premier League.
However, the club, which is highly known for its YNWA (You'll Never Walk Alone) anthem, apparently doesn't include Jews, since it didn't find it appropriate to mention that the four fans were murdered by Hamas terrorists during the October 7 massacre in Israel.
On page 47 of the matchday program, amidst celebrating random fan birthdays, there is also a notable absence of any mention of the atrocities committed by Hamas. These include acts of violence such as murder, rape, beheading and burning people alive. The British club also didn't mention the distressing abduction of 10-year-old LFC fan Ohad Munder to the Gaza Strip.
