Haneen identifies herself as a Palestinian,she is the daughter of two Palestinian parents .The fact that her homeland was “donated” to thieves doesnt de-Palestinize her.The more you deny them their Palestinian identity the more they hold onto it.

If they want to become Palestinian Arabs all they have to do is change their nationality and residence.

What matters is that Palestinian Arabs have to right to steal that name and pretend that they are the only Palestinians.

Haneen is Arab, Barakeh is Arab and Tibi is Arab, whether you like it or not.

If a Palestinian holds the Israeli citizenship,it doesnt make him/her less Palestinian.Haneen is Palestinian ,Barakeh is Palestinian and Tibi is Palestinian,whether you like it or not .

There is no “Palestinian” citizens of Israel.

One could be either Palestinian Arab or Israeli Arab, not Palestinian Israeli Arab.

Arabs are not as silly and naive as Jews to believe that parties like Balad or Hadash care about their voter.

I wondered to ask though whether the statement regarding the Arab population having lost faith in the political system is completely accurate given that faith may not have ever been placed with the Israeli political system to begin with. If we consider the history and continued disenfranchisement of Palestinian citizens of Israel it is prudent to postulate a different theory which follows the trend of Arab voters in Israel ever since they have been able to vote.
