Mr. Prime Minister of Israel Mr. Defense Minister of Israel
I am Omar Zahr-edeen Mohammad Sa’ad from Maghar village-Galilee.
I received a summons to present myself at the recruitment offices on October 31, 2012 so as to go through the regular tests needed for the army service, compulsory for the Druze community. I wish, however, to make the following statement:
I refuse to go through those tests because I completely oppose the compulsory army service for my people from the Druze community.
