Druzes in Syria

"Syria’s 700,000 Druze, followers of an offshoot of Shiite Islam, are increasingly leaning toward the rebels."  There is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that the Syrian Druzes are moving away from the regime.  In fact, the March 14 of Lebanon and Syria are so desperate for signs of a shift in the mood of Syrian Druzes that they made a hug fuss about the defection of one sole Druzes soldier.
