Are Palestinians in Israel having a political moment?

The latest round of elections in Israel saw big numbers of Palestinian voters - but it's unclear if that will translate to a louder voice in Parliament.

    Palestinian citizens of Israel turned out in record numbers to vote in the Israeli election with a key motivation: to dethrone Benjamin Netanyahu.

    They may still get stuck with him as prime minister, but for the first time in more than two decades, they've become real players in Israeli politics.

    Will this lead to the formation of a Palestinian political opposition, or could this send them back into political exile?
