Liverpool honors Israeli supporters, overlooks October 7 Hamas terrorism

Club's matchday program lists names of 4 Israeli fans but fails to mention they were murdered by Hamas while also ignoring 10-year-old fan Ohad Munder who is held hostage by terror group in Gaza

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.

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.
