Who did the Druze on the Golan Heights vote for most?

A surprise, or maybe not ..

Not Labor, Meretz, United Arab List-Ta'al or even Kadima. No, the Druze in the Golan voted overwhelmingly for Yisrael Beiteinu and Shas. In the recent elections, 50% of Majdal Shams voters cast their ballots for Yisrael Beiteinu. In neighboring town Masad'e, 53% of voters voted for Shas, and 38% for Yisrael Beiteinu. In Buqata, Lieberman's party received 48% of the votes, while Shas got 21%.

The Druze residents of the Golan Heights were not surprised by the support garnered by Eli Yishai's Shas and Lieberman's hard right-wing Yisrael Beiteinu, which ran under the platform "Without loyalty – no citizenship."

Cool, too bad the move to evacuate Jews from Judea (ethnic cleansing) is not criticized so strongly as Lieberman is...

BTW, Arabism is racism
