Short documentary about Druze in Israel

Israel Social TV, an independent leftist media NGO platform, produced a short documentary about the Druze in Israel and their relationship with the state. Unsurprisingly the token perspective is that of the Arabist camp but also one of the most outspoken Zionist activists is featured. The latter is Amal Nasr ad-Din, the first Druze Likud MK (1977-1988) and founder of the Druze Zionist Circle. Both narratives are at some point disputable but it is interesting to observe that they agree to a certain level about the negligence by the state.  

Don't see it as an objective documentary about Druze in Israel, consider it rather as a presentation of two opposing narratives.
