You don’t hear too much or anything in the American Press these days about the Druze. Whats their status in Israel? However all we ever hear about is the Palestinians? Yet the Druze are much larger group then they are. The Druze who prefer to be called Druze rather than Muslims. They actually are an off shoot of Islam in the same way the Mormons Usually refer to themselves as Mormons than Christians. They served in the Jewish states war of Independence along side of their Jewish counterparts and continue to serve and are draftees in the Israeli Army today. They maintain their own courts in many matters.They have been loyal to Israel and continue to do so..They are true friends of the Jewish people.
Perhaps when Israel went into Lebanon in the 1980″s some sort of homeland or autonomous region should have been made for those Druze who reside in Lebanon.
