The past few days haven't been easy for Balad MK Hanin Zoabi.

After exercising her "moral duty" to openly sympathize with the kidnapper-murderers of three Israeli teenagers, she has faced an angry backlash from fellow MKs, been served a mock "deportation order" - and could face a very real police investigation - been kicked out of a restaurant and effectively disowned by her extended family.

Now, it turns out she's been heckled by a member of the public, too.

In a video uploaded to Facebook last month, a man confronts the radical Arab MK and calmly gives her a piece of his mind.

"MK Zoabi I am proud that I enlisted in the Israel Defense Forces, and I think that you are not fitting to be in the Knesset (parliament) of the State of Israel - you are more fitting for the parliament of (Syrian President Bashar al) Assad," he can be heard telling her. "I am sorry that you serve in this state - you don't represent me!"

Zoabi responded to the man by calling him a "racist", to which he retorted: "I am not a racist - you need to get out of here to Syria!"

It's a tough life.

But, perhaps not as tough as her cousin, Mohammed Zoabi.

Mohammed has neither been booted from restaurants nor heckled in the street - but he has been forced into hiding due to credible threats to his life, after he spoke out against the kidnappings.

What a strange world we live in.
