MK Hanin Zoabi's Family: 'She Doesn't Represent Us'


On Monday, a representative of the Zoabi family told reporters that there were many people in the extended Zoabi clan who disagreed with Member of Knesset Hanin Zoabi (National Democratic Assembly - At-Tajamuʿ Al-Waṭanī Ad-Dīmūqraṭī in Arabic - Hebrew acronym Balad) when she said that the Hamas terrorists who kidnapped three Israeli teens weren't terrorists, justifying the abduction.

“The Zoabi clan numbers about 10,000, and we are not all Hanins,” said Nahal Zoabi, a cousin of the Knesset member and the principal of a high school in Kfar Nin, near Afula. “I condemn the kidnapping. It was an immoral and wrong thing to do."
