You don’t hear too much or anything in the American Press these days about the Druze. What’s 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 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.
