“Druse have done a lot more for the state than many Jews,” says Druse and Circassian leaders

Druse and Circassian municipal mayors as well as a deputy minister protested outside the Finance Ministry and Prime Minsiter’s Office on Sunday because of a decision by Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon to postpone a vote in the cabinet on a five-year development plan for these communities.

“The new finance minister decided to break his commitment towards us,” said Druse and Circassian Local Councils Forum head Jaber Hamoud, referring to the 2.3 billion shekel plan.

The Druse have sacrificed for the state in wars for the country and have even “done a lot more for the state than many Jews,” Hamoud said in an interview with The Jerusalem Post on Sunday after the protest.
