 MK Hanin Zoabi told Radio Tel Aviv this morning that the kidnappers of Eyal Yifrah, Gil-Ad Shayer and Naftali Frenkel should not be considered terrorists.

“Terrorists? No. Even if I don’t agree with their actions, I don’t think the kidnappers should be considered terrorists,” Zoabi said during an interview with Sharon Gal on the stations morning drive radio program. “I’m not surprised at all [about the kidnapping]. People are living under occupation. Their lives are not normal.”

Zoabi also called  her teenage cousin, 17-year-old Mohammed Zoabi  a “poor fool” and indicated that he is a stooge for the Israeli government because he appreciates his rights as a citizen in a democratic country. “He’s a a confused, uninformed kid who always feels the need to apologies to his strong [Israeli] masters,” the Knesset members said.

The younger Zoabi’s YouTube video statement of support for the hostages has garnered thousands of views, as well as threats from his family.

In response to the interview, Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman attacked MK Zoabi, saying the Israeli citizen who openly supports Hamas and Hezbollah should face the same punishment as the individuals responsible for abducting the yeshiva students.

According to a report on the 0404 website, Liberman called Zoabi a “terrorist’ and added that, having encouraged and supported terrorism, her punishment should be the same.

Several weeks ago, the website reported that Zoabi called a group of Jewish Israeli teenagers “murderers” and said that killing soldiers in order to obtain a higher goal is the right thing to do.

  1. What's the matter with Israel?! Kick out the terrorist Zoabi. Send her off to live with the terrorists she supports.

  2. That woman needs to die in a slow, smoldering crotch fire.

  3. so get rid of this bag of trash,.. impeach her and throw her out of the Knesset and out of the country. Iraq is a good place for her.

  4. everyone in the Northern Hemisphere needs to do Anger Management courses – no exceptions ps the Muslims first

  5. I ask our fellow Jews in Israel & the Diaspora to Unite as "Ehad/One People" and trust in the Almighty that He will protect us. Tell the World We've had "Enough" with their false sympathies, their hatred of us.

  6. Sharon Kochav says:

    That woman should be killed by lethal injection

  7. Simone Isaak says:

    Hanien Zubi bloody woman no one likes you, **** off

  8. Alan Kardon says:

    People who kidnap children are worse than terrorists. They should get the most severe penalties along with their supporters.

  9. Alan Kardon says:

    Not severe enough.

  10. Alan Kardon says:

    Actually don't deport her, let her catch the rockets that her friends shoot into Israel.

  11. Ida Wax says:

    Why is the likes of Zoabi still in the Govt? Democracy has boundry's or should have.Children who are taught only to hate will never have peace as long as they live.

  12. Agree with Liberman. Zoabi’s ranting could be qualified as treasure, which is, by the way, by the law of the State of Israel, could be punished by death penalty. At least she should be kicked out of Knesset. For those that will say it is not “democratic”, remember how MK Meir Kachane (may Hashem avenge his blood!) was kicked out of Knesset for saying truth and love for Israel people?

  13. He is a brave young man to have made that video which a terrorist cousin that might call for his murder.

  14. She calls her cousin a fool because he appreciates his rights in a democratic country. She is the fool for saying such a thing… she has just admitted that Israel is a democratic country and that Palestinians have rights in Israel. That he appreciates those rights make him an intelligent individual.

  15. Anonymous says:

    The irony is that she is a democratically elected member of the Israel government. In what Arab country could someone be allowed such freedom of speech?

  16. Donn Gross says:

    It is says in Pirkei Avot that our actions are watched & words written down; Anyone with basic knowledgeable of NDE's know we undergo a life review. We should take particular note of our actions and words at these critical moments. The words said to offend and hurt others will come back to haunt its originator many times over. We need not take joy in knowing the words used to offend us will be turned against the one who said them. Rather, feel sorry for those so blind to humanity, compassion and decency.

  17. What a surprise, an Arab Israeli who hates Israel.?!. The real surprise that while giving aid and comfort to the enemy,she is not prosecuted,or at least dismissed from the Knesset. Rabbi Kahane was ejected,but she stays??

  18. Basha Kline says:

    These certainly are terrorists, do not make the excuse that they are under sufference, this is how they wish to live, in violence, hatred and killing it is all the majority of palestinians know or want to know. Do not view their lifestyles as hard-done-by, those who do not wish to live in squallor have jobs in farms, hospitals, even the Knesset – the majority are under the influence of the fanatical sector who brainwash and treat their own as chattels – yet they blame the very people who wish to help them. – Zoabi, even a rabid dog is confined!

  19. whats SHE doing in the Knesset ?????????…………………….get rid of her, feed her to her own !
