This story illustrates yet again that the entire “Palestinian” society and culture, and “Israeli Arab” society and culture for the most part as well, is dedicated to Jew-hatred and the destruction of Israel. Hate is all they’re about. So when a member of their group — Dima Tayeh — stops hating, they cut her off. They can’t bear the fact that even one member of their clan has stopped hating. Dima Tayeh is to be commended for her courage and honesty. She knows that non-Jews are not oppressed in Israel, and she says so, despite the personal cost. “I wish that all Arab communities could live in a democracy like Israel,” she says. And I wish that all Arab communities were made up of people like Dima Tayeh.
“Muslim candidate in Netanyahu’s party gets cut off from her family,” World Israel News, January 10, 2019 (thanks to Mark):

In an October 2017 interview on Musawa TV, an Israeli Arabic-language channel, Tayeh, then a member of an anti-BDS delegation to U.S. campuses, stated, “Israel did not recruit me to improve its image in the world. I’m proud of my country….
“I wish that all Arab communities could live in a democracy like Israel.”
“Israel is not an apartheid state, and anyone who says it is should be ashamed of himself,” she declared.
After announcing her candidacy, she told Hadashot News, “I’m proud to run in the Likud primaries, as an Arab, as a woman, as a Muslim who is extending a hand to her community and trying to help them and the State of Israel, and to improve its image.”…
