The Prime Minister’s office reported that the meeting was held in a good atmosphere and Benjamin Netanyahu listened to the Druze community representatives. The latter said that they trust in Prime Minister Netanyahu’s leadership. The representatives raised before the Prime Minister their request to amend the nation-state law which legislated that Israel is the historical homeland of the Jewish people and that Israel is a Jewish State.

Prime Minister Netanyahu made no commitment and said that he would continue to hold consultations; the Prime Minister will meet early next week with local council heads in order to complete them.

The goal is to reach a quick and acceptable solution that will express the great esteem of the State of Israel for the unique partnership of fate with the Druze community.

Brig.-Gen. (ret.) Amal Assad and former MK Shachiv Shnaan also attended the meeting.
