    All people are born free and the Druze are no exception. Intimidation, coersion and fear do not work and unfortunaetly that is the case in Syria. The country has been under emergency law since 1963 and the time to cahnge has come. The Druze in Syria would like to live in freedom and without any fear of persecution.
