Bnei Sakhnin rejects the criticism: "This is a lack of consideration towards our religion" | Israel today


After receiving quite a bit of criticism for the decision of most of the players not to wear shirts supporting the LGBT community, the group from the sector responds: "What did the management think? That we do something that could harm our religion, our parents or our families?"

Bnei Sakhnin rejects the criticism of the decision of most of the team's players not to go up to the game against Maccabi Tel Aviv with shirts supporting the "Iggy" association, which helps the LGBT community.

The club sent a letter to the director of the league last week, clarifying that this goes against the beliefs of some of the players and Islam.

One of the players in Sakhnin said: "From our point of view, this is a lack of consideration towards our religion and our faith. What did the administration think? That we would do something that could harm our religion, our parents or our families? We have no problem with anyone, but we will not support something like that. Let people do what that they want but not expect us to go against the most principled positions in our religion."

Beyond that, Sakhnin are very satisfied with the point against Maccabi Tel Aviv, even though the team is down to ten players after Biram Kiel's dismissal.

"We gave a heroic performance, even with 11 players they didn't give us a chance. They said we would grab 5 or 6, but everyone was fooled."

Sakhnin management praised goalkeeper Gad Amos for his ability and the club will try to extend his contract for next season as well.
