The Golan Druze

Michael Totten writes up his report of his trip to Majdal Shams on the Golan Heights, where he met with two representatives of the Druze community. The Druze on the Golan Heights are in limbo between Israel and Syria; even though they would rather stay under Israeli rule, they have to continue to declare their loyalty to Syria's Bashar al-Assad, because they cannot rely on Israel not to return them to Syria, and therefore they have to live in fear of one day falling under Assad's rule.

I urge you to read the whole thing.

By the way, I can confirm that the Druze really would rather be part of Israel. If only we'd act like the 'strong horse.'

The Stupid Jews keep begging Baby Assad to take the Golan from him - I mean what they're really trying to do is to turn it over to Iran.

Fortunately, the Syrians have no interest in peace with Israel.

What could go wrong indeed

The Israeli government must not start behaving like the British gov: promising one thing and betraying people! The trail of destruction the Brits have left across the world: India/Pakistan, Nigeria, Ireland etc and of course Israel/filistine.

The common thread here is the Brits submission to islam!

Israel must show loyalty to these people and NOT use them like pawns!

The Druze are muslim and have no place in Israel. Hashem warned in the Torah about the trouble that allowing nonJews to stay in Israel will cause. In my opinion, only genetically verified (mtDNA or Cohen Genetic marker) Jews belong in Israel. If the Jews of Israel believe they need workers then they need to make more Jewish babies and help more Jewish immigrants.
