The spiritual leader of Israel's Druse community on Friday rebuffed comments by Lebanese Druse parliamentarian Walid Jumblatt, who called on his coreligionists to support the Joint Arab List.

In an interview with the Arab-language web site Huna, Sheikh Moafaq Tarif said that the Druse in Israel "are an inseparable part of Israeli society and they enjoy freedom of expression and freedom to do as they please."
