DRUZE ARE MUSLIMS? ASK ZAHID


Zahid Hamidi has condemned the Syiahs (and hence its offshoots, the Alawit, Ismailis) are not Muslims! The whole of Iran, a powerful nation would be in hellfire, and also those Syiahs in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and elsewhere.

Behold, to all and sundry, Zahid, got to say and act tough to the few Syiah and its influence here.  He means business being the de facto mother of security! His statement is without much basis, an extreme one. In a way he is an extremist. Ignore the extremists, Najib urged.

Little do we know about the Druze especially about their religious adherence. The Druze is supposedly an exclusive( Muslim?) sect in Lebanon and Syria.



 Druze area (striped red) of Lebanon and Syria.

A Druze village situated near the Golan Heights. In the 17th and 18th centuries many Druze moved from Lebanon to the rocky plateau of Al Leja, near Izra, and Jebel ed Druz in modern Syria, and from there to the Golan Heights.



 Much what is written about them are by westerners "... The creed was formalized and continued after Darazi's departure by al Hakim's vizier, Hamza, and it is he who is given the second place to God (al Hakim) in Druze theology, as the incarnation of Universal Intelligence.. "

If such is part of their belief than how to reconcile with Islamic teachings?


One of their famous political figure in Lebanon not long ago is Walid Jumblat.
