On 21.10, two weeks after the horrific massacre of Hamas terrorists in the communities near the Gaza Strip, nothing happened among Israeli and Jewish Liverpool fans, after a sign with the names of four Israeli Mighty Reds fans, Roy Monder, Neta Epstein, Yuval Yaffe and Uri Tchernichovsky, who were murdered in the brutal Hamas terror attack, was boycotted by the stadium staff before the start of the derby against Everton. If that wasn't enough, a number of fans waved Palestinian signs despite the league's orders to prevent Israeli and Palestinian flags from entering the stands on all fields.

Now, six weeks later, that incident doesn't seem to have been forgotten. The English luxury club posted on social media a "Happy Hanukkah" greeting to its Jewish fans around the world, but the tweet led to cynical and harsh reactions from Israeli and Jewish fans of the club.

"Holidays are nice, but life is more important. Even from football. Celebrating a holiday is easy. Condemn massacre and mass rape is easier. And on October 7, your silence was shameful," wrote a user named Sagi Friedman. Another wrote: "Neta Epstein will not have a happy Hanukkah. He had planned to visit Anfield with his girlfriend over the holiday, but two months ago he was murdered at home by Hamas and ISIS terrorists. And you, you decided to demolish a plaque in his memory. Shame on you!" It should be noted that, among other things, there were responses from pro-Palestinians who wrote responses such as: "Free Palestine," "Help the children in Gaza," and more.
