Druze Soldier day

Something to show people when they claim that Israel is racist.

Thousands of youth from Druze communities marched in the Galilee Monday afternoon to mark Druze Soldier Day. According to Israel Radio, Druze soldiers who have been honored during their IDF service, bereaved Druze families who have lost soldiers in any fighting, those disabled in their army service, and reserve officers, are all taking part in the march.

There will be a central ceremony Monday night. Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz will participate, as will leaders of the Druze community.
