The Druze peril is giving Israeli-Druze Professor Yakub Halabi a deeper appreciation of Zionism:
First, I must admit that when seeing the calamity of minorities such as the Yazidis, Kurds, Christians and Druze in Syria and Iraq, I become more understanding of Zionism as the antidote to anti-Semitism. Minorities, unfortunately, are the abandoned children of international politics, used by states as pawns for their own interests. Minorities hence are like orphans: they reluctantly seek adoption by whoever might be able to protect them.
