Bowing to no Militia: The Druze of Lebanon

Mount Lebanon in historically the home of the Druze and the Maronites of Lebanon. The Druze, while few in numbers, have been able to leave their marks on the histroy of Lebanon.

Though armed only with personal weapons they valiantly defended their homes, honor and dignity from the invading militias.

Today the Druze of the Mountain are awaking from the shock of Lebanese heavy weaponry used on them by fellow Lebanese- as the Lebanese al Akhbar reported.

Shaykh Naim Hassan, the spiritual leader of the Druze community of Lebanon said a few words words that capture the feelings of all the Lebanese that were attacked by the Hizbullah militia and its lesser allies.

"We are a people of peace not surrender, our sect does not bow except for God."
