Second Arab Youth Threatened for Supporting Abducted Teens

The outpouring of public support in Israel for the three students kidnapped by terrorists is reverberating even among the country's Arab minority - pitting young moderate voices against established currents of anti-Zionist extremism within their community. The issue hit headlines after it was revealed that relatives of young Nazareth resident Mohammed Zoabi were arrested after planning to abduct him over his Facebook video Saturday, in which he expressed support for the three Jewish youths abducted by Hamas.

Now another Zionist Arab 17-year-old is facing similar death threats for doing the same thing. The unnamed Arab youth from the Israeli Arab city of Umm al-Fahm uploaded a picture of himself to Facebook, in which he can be seen with a large Israeli flag and a sign reading "#Bring Back Our Boys" with a Jewish Star of David on it.
