None because the zionist state is Jewish-only state. Arab representation is only symbolic because they are trying to improve their image in the west and make the world forget about the Nakba. Look what they teach their children:

Last time I looked at a team, it was only a few people. Statistically, only 1/5 people should be Arab assuming all else, and I don't think this one was even that many people.
Also, I'd like to know your limitations on the word "Arab". I just ask because, when discussing something more recently with an anti-Israel person in real life, a Druze person was dismissed as "non-Arab" because they are more pro-Israel than anyone else. I've found this personally to be the case with many.
They are equal citizens, yes. They have the same rights and the same protections, which Israel takes seriously. What you might not be accounting for is something that Israel might not control: Issues like willingness to represent Israel, or drive to achieve this position, or anything else that would personally drive them away from seeking it.
Maybe Arabs are less inclined to participate in Israeli politics than a typical Israeli would be, so they don't go into law or associated professions and thus stay away from things like this. Or, the position of serving to represent Israel is to represent Israel's best interests, and some who hold stronger solidarity with the Palestinians might not want to be split on this issue. Of course, Israel could purposely be passing over some candidates because it is KNOWN that they'd do a sh*t job representing Israel and there are a few elected that Israel isn't convinced is truly working for the betterment of Israel.
Keep in mind that no nation has perfect ratios. American politicians are not 50% for example, but calling it not free because of such is a very uninformed statement.

Actually, this is false. Israeli polititcians did, at one point years ago, offer to do land swaps that would essentially trade populations by annexing settlements to Israel and Israeli-Arab villages into a Palestinian state. This was done in response to the claim that Israeli-Arabs are actually Palestinians, who would prefer to be part of a Palestinian state rather than be a minority in Israel. The Israeli-Arab community then made it clear that they did not prefer this, as Israel has the highest standard of living for Arabs in Middle-East. Israelis dropped it once this was understood, and no such offer has been on the table in years.

How many Palestinian women are at the Palestinian negotiation team...? They're over half of the population... they're politically active... the peace process affects them just as much... Palestinians claim to be so just and innocent... yet their women are not represented at all!!!
Now, though, Israel had offered land swaps, which means no one would have to leave their home, but I've yet to hear of population swaps. Though I'm sure the Israeli Arabs are shaking in their pants over the thought of leaving their democratic, rich, free 'apartheid' country and becoming citizens of the third-world dictatorship that will undoubtedly be the new Palestinian country.

There are Arabs in the Knesset and Cabinet, i.e. high up and impacting the government. So obviously Arabs ARE a part of any negotiation process and vote.
Can you name who's on the negotiation teams on each side? Till you can, there's no point in discussing who's in or out of each team or why.
On your swap lie -- The plan is NOT NOT NOT part of any peace deal!
Israel leaders had the brilliant idea that they'd make a viable PA state by swapping large tracts of Arab-resident areas in Israel with Jewish-resident areas in the West Bank. However, Arab Israelis protested! So Israel ran polls, and turns out over 98% of Israeli Arabs want to stay INSIDE Israel. So the plan is NOT NOT NOT part of any peace deal, duh!
And ironically, you ignore what this point really shows loud and clear -- that Israeli Arabs would rather be under the Israeli's government! It's to the extent that in Jerusalem where a lot of Arabs held Jordanian and mere national cards, there was a run to apply for Israeli citizenship so they'd be able to stay, when the plan was first proposed. When polled, they cited better economics and freedoms and rights as their reasons for wanting to stay.
You've posted to bash at Israel with whatever you pretend you can. Which reflects on what Israel has to deal with.
If you were really about Palestinians or peace, you'd be posting possible real solutions, not bashing anyone.
A youtube is not evidence of anything... it's a cut & paste posting by whomever wants to paste whatever. Arabs are represented throughout Israeli governments and society, including on boards of major social activism organizations. I'd bet you haven't researched it.

Israel does not offer to swap them. One politician suggested that, and his ideas are very unpopular, not only among arabs, but among Jewish Israelis too.

Why don't you name one pro Israel Arab who would go there and represent Israels majority, for such is the way of a democracy.. No, not a one of the 1/5 could represent us 4/5 !!

How many Jewish peace negotiators are there on the Palestinian peace negotiation team?
Not everything is perfect, but everyone here knows it is better to be an Arab in Israel than it is to be a Jew in an Arab country.

How many Christians (or Jews, for that matter) are seated in the Gaza Legislature?

Thank to God none.
Arabs can't be trusted.
