The new Walid Jumblat

"Progressive Socialist Party (PSP) leader MP Walid Jumblatt expressed relief on Monday over the decreasing number of Druze enrolling in the Israeli Army. Speaking to reporters following a
meeting in Cyprus with Druze Member of Knesset Said Naffaa and other representatives of the Druze community in Israel, Jumblatt said that the percentage of Druze who are not enrolled in the Israeli military has reached 63.7 percent compared to a past rate of 9 percent." (thanks David)
