Syria: Many Druze become Israeli citizens

With Syria ablaze, dozens of Golan Heights Druze seek Israeli citizenship

Long loyal to Damascus, many young Druze now consider their best option is to become Israeli
"Syrian Druze residing in the Golan Heights once burned ID cards offered to them by Israeli government authorities, after Israeli law was extended to the area in 1981. Three decades later, after 19-months of brutal civil war in Syria, Druze residents of the Golan are flocking to the Interior Ministry by the dozens to request Israeli citizenship."
