A Druze "Guide to the Middle East"

November 27, 2022

This past week, a young Druze Israeli citizen injured in car accident was murdered in Jenin, after terrorists from the PA took him off life support and held his body for ransom. The Druze community threatened that if his body was not returned, there would be blood. Within 24 hours, the family received the body back and gave him a proper burial. Officially, negotiations between Israel, the IDF, and the PA led to his release. But on this week's Israel Uncensored, Josh Hasten argues that what really caused the gunmen to cave, was the show of strength by the Druze community, issuing an ultimatum that the terrorists would pay a steep price if the body was not returned. Josh argues that Israel, years ago, should have taken a similar approach in securing the release of two Israelis, and the bodies of two IDF soldiers being held by Hamas in Gaza.
