Should the Druze people in Israel become an independent nation with its own governing body?

  • The Druze should be independent

    The Druze people in Israel should become an independent nation with its own governing body because they are different from Israelis and Palestinians in language in culture. They are truly a stateless people. The Druze are hardworking, vigilant people who want to have their own thriving community, and it would be good for them to have their own state.

  • No They Shouldn't

    I do not believe the Druze people in Israel should become an independent nation with its own governing body. The Druze people are fully involved with the Israel government and serve as military personnel and also have political positions. There is no reason for them to have their own separate nation.

  • The Druze people are part of Israel, and do not need to be an independent nation.

    The Druze people of Israel should definatly not become an independent nation, with their own governing body. It is completly unneccesary because they have integrated so well into Israeli society. Their people serve in the Israli Defense Leauge, and participate at the highest levels of government. For example a Druze person served as acting Israeli president in 2007.

  • Combine the cultures

    No, I do not think that they need to be independant and become separate nations. If you look here at the US, we have a lot of Hispanics and blacks, but no one wants them to become a separate country, because we have all came together and made a melting pot.

  • It is currently impractical for the Druze to have their own state.

    While an independent Druze state might be ideal, in reality it is completely impractical given the current situation in the Middle East. There are simply not enough Druze concentrated together in any area to make a nation-state viable. Furthermore neither Israel, the Palestinians, or any other ethnic groups in the region are likely to be willing to cede any territory peacefully for a Druze state.
