Haya Bishara speaks Hebrew, but here a translation of her speech into English:

Knesset Chairman Mr. Revlin)- I am hounored to invite to the stage kenessset member Afo Igbarie and the Baptist School 11 grade student Haya Bishara.
(Knesset member Igbarie) (Baptist School 11 grade student Haya Bishara.)-.Mr. Chairman,
Honorable Knesset  
Mister Prime minister, you have formerly declared that you advocate for equality between Arabs and Jews, and I truly hope that the government you lead will indeed act to promote equality.
However, for me, equality is still a vague dream, however, inequality we already had experienced as students at school, through the shortage in classrooms, Laboratories, equipment and so on.
Even for those of us who manage to survive the formal pedagogic system for the native Arab minority, graduate and acquire academic credentials, their odds to attain employment in accordance with their qualifications are nonetheless poor.
Honorable Knesset, we, the Arab youth, are asking for an equal opportunities in education and employment, and want to integrate in this country as equal citizens.
Knesset members, you ought to act to attain equal opportunities and diminish disparity, so we could all carry on together toward a better future.
