‘We are worried about the Syrian Druse and demand that the world not stand by and do nothing’ • By ARIEL BEN SOLOMON Israeli Druse expressed their anxiety to The Jerusalem Post on Thursday, saying they are very concerned about the fate of their brethren across the border in Syria.

“We are worried about the Syrian Druse and demand that the world not stand by and do nothing,” said Druse and Circassian Local Councils Forum head Jaber Hamoud.

Hamoud, who served 25 years in the army and is also the head of the municipality of Sajur, a Druse town in the Galilee, said that if the world would arm the Druse, they would be able to defend themselves and help prevent Islamic State from reaching Israel and Jordan.
