Left unmentioned are the restraints under which the token Arab MPs operate, and what befall those who were seen as going too far in taking seriously the false promises of Israeli non-democracy. Here is an Arab MP: make sure to include that picture on posters prepared by Israeli embassy in DC to distribute to chapters of the Israeli lobby on US college campuses.
