A new group calling itself the "Free Druze" has distributed a statement in the Shouf Mountains, criticizing Druze leader Walid Jumblat for underestimating the minds of fellow Druze citizens.
"We tell Jumblat, congratulations on regaining both your rationalism and political maturity," said the statement signed by the Free Druze.
"Congratulations on having the blessing of forgetfulness, the blessing of switching policies and moving arms from one shoulder to the other," added the statement carried by the daily Al-Akhbar on Monday.
Dubbing Jumblat as "ruler of the mountain" and "Caesar of the Shouf," the Free Druze criticized the PSP leader's "twisted policy."
"Your twisted policy is no longer a source of confidence," it said.
"The mask fell and Socialism is buried. Enough underestimating the minds of the Druze."
"We will not allow you, or your lawmakers or your men to use us to make a fortune in the name of the Druze," the statement threatened.
