His soft approach and calling Al-Nusra Front a non-terrorist organisation didn’t help. On April 19, I wrote a reply to Walid Jumblat interview in which he said: “I don’t classify the Nusra Front as a terrorist organisation, because in Nusra Front there are Syrian citizens who were forced to join it due to the Syrian regime terrorism”. It seems his approach and all the guarantees he took from Turkey, Qatar and maybe Saudi Arabia that Al-Nusra front will not attack and kill Syrian Druze didn’t work. His call to Druze to raise the minarets didn’t work.
This past Wednesday, Jabhat al-Nusra (Nusra Front), Al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria (if Jumblat forgot), killed around 40 Druze in the village of Qalb Lawzeh in the Jabal al-Summaq region in Syria. Some reports say that a week ago the villagers converted to Sunni Islam to avoid the wrath of the terrorists, others say the villagers were forced to convert. Will Mr. Jumblat come out and declare al-Nusra is no different from ISIS? Or he will keep abiding by Turkey and Qatar “wishes”? Jumblat been calling on Druze to stay with the Arab choice. A choice that they have adhered to and waged battles in its name. Mr. Jumblatt “Al Khat el Arabi” doesn’t mean forcing your people to bow to terrorists. Bowing will not save them this time. The massacre of Qalb Lawzeh is the best example.
I totally understand your hate for the Syrian regime. I hate this regime more than you do. It’s time for you to change your tactics. Terrorist takes the soft approach as weakness. Today Qalb Lawzeh and tomorrow the Suwayda and Jabal el Druze. The “desert sand storm” and its barbaric approach will not consider what you label them. The storm was unleashed in the beginning of the 7th century is on the roll again. Maybe it’s time for you to look at other minorities in Lebanon and come up with a new strategy. I’s time to revise what you have said today in your interview: “the problem of the presidency election in Lebanon will be solved when Aoun and Geagea stop dreaming of becoming the next president”. It’s not about minority report, it’s about minority’s alliance to face the storm.
