Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman stated on Tuesday that the kidnappers behind the abduction of three yeshiva students five days ago and MK Haneen Zoabi (Balad) are terrorists.

Zoabi stated to Tel Aviv Radio on Tuesday morning that the kidnappers are not kidnappers but rather Palestinians who see no other way to change their situation and that such actions would continue until the Israeli public would be willing to hear their plight.

Liberman said that her comments crossed the line.

On Monday the MK's sixteen-year-old cousin Mohammad Zoabi, made a video calling on “terrorists” to return the three yeshiva students.

Haneen Zoabi's reaction to that statement was one of disapproval. “I am happy to see that Israeli hasbara [public diplomacy] is in such a dire state that it needs a stupid boy with a twisted identity who feels a continuous need to apologize to his strong masters,” Haneen Zoabi told Ynet.
