AL ARABIYA GLOBAL DISCUSSIONS

An insight into the past, present and future of the Druze

Friday, 13 May 2016

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is hiding behind the minorities as the bloody five-year conflict rages on, top Druze expert Eyad Abu Shakra told Al Arabiya English in a global discussions session aimed at shedding light on the Druze people.


“I think Mr. Assad is hiding behind minorities and not really protecting them," said Abu Shakra, a veteran journalist and columnist who joined pan-Arab newspaper Asharq al-Awsat in the UK in 1979, occupying several positions including Senior Editor, Managing Editor and Head of Research.

 

The session was moderated by Al Arabiya English Editor-in-Chief Faisal J. Abbas.
