Yes, the third largest party because it's several other Arab parties joined together (hence 'Joint' List).
Yes? And Zionist Union (second largest in the Knesset) is three parties joined together, and The Jewish Home is two parties joined together, as is United Torah Judaism...

Also, 13 out of 120 people is barely 11%. while Palestinians reportedly take up 20% of Israel's population. If that means Palestinians are treated equally in Israel, then the fact that roughly 20% of US Congress is female (while women make up 50.8% of the US population) means that sexism is over in America and women are not treated unfairly or unequally compared to men.
Well, nobody is stopping those 20% for voting -- for the Joint List or otherwise. If they want more representation they have the power to make it happen. I won't address the bit about America because I don't want to derail the thread over my sceptical views re: the ostensibly unequal position of women in the US.

I've seen no mention of Israeli strikes on Palestinians from you, Castus, or that foreign powers helped to establish "Jewish national home" while the Palestinians are already there.

I'm fairly sure I mentioned Israeli strikes on Israel. In fact I'm pretty sure I advocated for more of them.

Quote
the Arabs said from the beginning of the partitioning of Palestine that they would not accept it. Hundreds of thousands of people were displaced because of it.
Yep.

Violent protest is how people show a government their anger when that government or other powers- like the UN- refuses to listen. While I also don't agree with the extreme violence, it's not for no reason.
Listen to what? Once the Palestinians have something worth saying I'm sure we'll listen. Although as I've said, the UN is willing to listen to them any old time.
