As we know, 20% the citizens of the state of Israel are Palestinians. As citizens, one of the few rights Palestinians have in this apartheid state is political representation in the Knesset, the Israeli Parliament. Palestinian members of the Knesset are a distinct minority, and are often criticized by other Palestinians of collaborating with the Israeli system that so severely discriminates against them. This morning we feature one those Palestinian members of the Knesset in an interview with the Palestinian journalist, Salim Barameh in his Podcast he calls Dardashe, where she speaks to the role she plays as a Palestinian citizen in the Israeli Knesset.

Aida Touma-Sliman, is a prominent Palestinian feminist activist, founder of the Women Against Violence Association and former newspaper editor. Touma-Sliman is not only the first and only woman in Israel to head a daily newspaper, but also the first woman elected to the High Follow-Up Committee for Arab Citizens of Israel. She also, as a Palestinian citizen of Israel, is an elected member of the Israeli Parliament, the Knesset. Born and raised in Nazareth, she now resides in Akka.

We begin with a question from Salim Barameh to Aida concerning her years spent in Nazareth.
