Former kidnapped soldier Gilad Schalit's father Noam said Wednesday that if he was Palestinian he would try to kidnap IDF soldiers.

Schalit, who is running for a Knesset seat with the Labor Party, paraphrased former Labor leader Ehud Barak, who shocked many people when he told anti-Israel activist Gideon Levy in a 1998 interview that if he were Palestinian, he would have joined a terrorist organization.

“We also kidnapped British soldiers when we were fighting for our freedom,” Schalit said in an interview with Channel 10, referring to pre-state Zionist paramilitary organizations during the British mandate.
