Druze citizens of Israel, including IDF veterans and families who lost sons in the army, have been pulled into the conflict between Arab citizens and the Israeli government over the recent spate of house demolitions and demolition orders. According to MK Ayman Odeh, since the founding of Israel in 1948, no communities have been built for Arabs and “There are 940 communities that I can’t live in because of acceptance committees.”
