Arab Druze Inititiative Committee in solidarity with refusniks

Hadash website has an article on solidarity visit by the Arab Druze Inititiative Committee to the family home of a Druze man who refuse to serve in the IOF. The young man, Tariq Gul Sirhan, had declared that he would not serve in the Israeli military, after which he was issued an 'insanity' certificate (a politically motivated punishment, that can give problems for future employments) and detained him for a period.

Jihad Saad, the Arab Druze Initiative Committee secretary and head of the delegation, stated that the Committee "througout its history has supported all those who refuse the compulsory military service imposed on our youth".
