AFTER ALL, IT'S NOT "THE DRUZE STATE":

Druze IDF soldier beaten in nightclub 'for speaking Arabic' (TIMES OF ISRAEL, February 7, 2015)

A Druze IDF soldier was beaten over the weekend in a nightclub in northern Israel, apparently after the assailants heard the young man speaking in Arabic. [...]

The head of the Daliyat al-Karmel Regional Council, Rafik Halabi, urged police to investigate the matter swiftly and bring the assailants to justice.

"This is the second instance within two weeks in which a Druze soldier who has served the state, was attacked for speaking Arabic," Halabi said, in reference to a January incident in which Druze university student Tommy Hasson was severely beaten near the Central Bus Station in Jerusalem, also after he was heard speaking Arabic.
