Balad Chairman Sa'id Nafa (Balad) will be interrogated by police, Sunday, for having visited Syria recently after having been denied permission by the Interior Ministry. In early September, 330 Druse religious leaders led by Nafa went on a tour of Druse religious sites in Syria. Nafa's visit to Syria was blasted by government members unanimously, including Deputy Knesset Chairman Majalie Whbee of Kadima, also a Druse, who called the visit a "trip of flattery to [Syrian President Bashar] Assad, initiated by members of the school of [former MK] Azmi Bishara,' saying that it "represents only the extremist margin groups and not the mainstream Druse population of Israel."
