An Arab-Israeli teen from Umm al-Fahm filed a complaint with police, saying he received death threats for his public show of support for the return of the three kidnapped yeshiva students, Israel Radio reported.

The 17-year-old posted a photograph of himself on Facebook holding an Israeli flag and a sign reading "Bring Back Our Boys" with a Star of David underneath.

The boy said he received anonymous phone calls from people calling him a "traitor" and threatening to kill him. Umm el-Fahm police opened an investigation into the incident.

Two days ago 17-year-old Mohammad Zoabi of Nazareth, a cousin of Balad MK Haneen Zoabi, caused an uproar with his video calling on “terrorists” to return the three teens.

His video was uploaded to Youtube on Saturday and as of Wednesday evening had accounted for nearly 85,000 views.

MK Zoabi, who said Tuesday that the kidnappers were not terrorists, but rather were fighting the occupation, was quick to condemn the younger Zoabi's outcry, calling him "a stupid boy with a twisted identity."
