    Just bought the nullneon shirt as well and was looking forward to cheering them on tomorrow.

    that’s the worst bit, speeding up the process so idf can murder women and children quicker.
    Before this I was genuinely wanting dortmund to win, (mainly due to the Paul Lambert connection, at a bad time for us a current Champions League winner came to sign for us)



    “… which is providing Israel with 10,000 rounds of 120mm precision tank ammunition. Israel made the request in November, and Germany reportedly considered speeding up delivery of the ammunition by providing it from its own military's existing stockpiles while ordering more from Rheinmetall.”

    Taking the Israeli part out altogether... No sports club should EVER be sponsored by a weapons manufacturer. Jesus! We banned tobacco products, half of Europe bans alcohol sponsorship, there's a possibility of banning gambling at some point... This is a terrible visual for Dortmund and the Bundesliga

    Can’t fathom how any club would be stupid enough to sign a deal with a weapons manufacturer unless the Dortmund board support the the genocide of Palestinians.

    I’m hoping they’ve just been naive and did it due to the sponsors being German

    Few German teams have went down in my estimation since this all started. Was it Bayern that released a player because he posted something pro-Palestine ? St Pauli as well.

    Bayern pulled a played up. Mainz released that boy we were linked with.

    Honestly binned my St Pauli shirt because they support genocide in Gaza,stand shoulder to shoulder with their ‘anti-fascist’ brethren in the stolen land.

    I've a lot of sympathy for people and institutions in Germany when it comes to matters relating to their handling of Jewish matters. I'd imagine there's plenty there horrified by what's going on but bound by history and the legal/social ramifications of their past. The rest of the world can be more nuanced about some matters, when they need to walk on egg shells.

    I get that but a players personal political thoughts are his own choice and the Dortmund thing goes beyond having sympathy for the Jewish community.
