The Lebanese Druze leader Walid Jumblatt has published on his page on the social network Twitter statement, in which he approved the attack on the Temple mount and called on Israeli Druze not to serve in the IDF. He said that he admires the «heroic Mujahideen» that kill «soldiers of the occupying army» who invaded Jerusalem.
This statement caused strong dissatisfaction with the Druze community in Israel, wrote on Tuesday, July 18, the newspaper «gaarets».
Jumblatt also expressed confidence that the detectors installed at the entrances to the Old city to prevent terrorist attacks, «demean the dignity of the pilgrims».
Earlier, Jumblatt accused Israel of seeking to destroy the States of the region and to provoke a war between religious communities.
