Problems with the Druze faith and history

I do not just attack Christians and Muslims. I attack everything that I think is wrong or illogical.

1- Lack of forgiveness. Ghufran

In our faith, the Druze do not forgive but consider it a duty to return any transgression. This is dangerous and the death of one Druze can lead to the death of many others of the transgressors, and has happened many times in the Lebanese history.

2- Lack of an official apology for bloody history with Maronites

The Druze, so far, have not apologized for Feudalism and the 1860 massacre and destruction of Christian villages by Saed Joumblatt, who the biggest Druze Emirs from both sides stood behind at the time.

3- Doomsday rhetoric from Judaism (although it goes against our actual faith)

Highly-estimeed Druze sheikhs have propagated the message that "the World is going to end soon" before the year 2000, which generally hindered people from progress and spread a negative mentality. When the epistles of wisdom themselves do not say that but say the actual opposite, that the cycle of the current religions end but the world continues with newer creeds.

4- Taking the Epistles of Wisdom to be Holy when it says it is not

This is actually against the epistles themselves. Master Baahaa says "What I write that's right, it's from God, and what is wrong, is from me". The Druze Masters are shadows or reflections on the lower plain, and so are not perfect and admit to making errors.


5- Loss between Islamic Taqiyah and True Faith

Many Druze say and argue things to me that are Islamic and against our faith. And are confused due to how the clergy hides its beliefs from public and doesn't work on educating the young.

6- Religiously-justified racism against others

This shows in honoring the Druze bloodline and not marrying from other sects. Even Maronites and Shiah with very close genetics and fom the same older tribes. Many Druze came from Chrisitan tribes. Master Baaha is from the Tay Christian Tribe. Prince Al-Tanoukhi is from the Tanoukh Christian tribe.

7- Blind adherence to Feudal Lords and Princes

Leb Druze are either with Joumblatt or Arslan... When those old political families are Feudal and outdated for the modern day.

Those are just a few.

اقدر فعليا تطرقكم لهكذا موضوع

اني لست من المتخصصين بدراسة الديانات كحضرتكم... ومما لا شك فيه ان لديكم اطلاع واسع على تاريخ وتطور وفلسفة مختلف الديانات وهذا يظهر جلي واضح بمختلف المواضيع التي تطرحونها

مما لا شك فيه ان جميع الديانات علي السواء هي فلسفات عميقة ومبنية على تعمق كبير بامور هذه الدنيا... ولكن تبقي هناك علامات استفهام علي كل الديانات.. يطرحها الناس ويحاولون ايجاد تفسير منطقي لها

فالنقاط التي طرحتموها تدعو فعلا للاستفهام... غياب الغفران مثلا.. او منعه بالمطلق.. بنظري يتعارض مع ابسط قواعد الانسانية

كما ان التعصب الدرزي... وهذا الحرص الزائد علي الحفاظ على النسل الدرزي من خلال زواج الدروز من بعضهم البعض... اوليس بدليل على انهم يعتبرون نفسهم عرق ارقى واسمى عن باقي البشر؟... ولماذا هكذا مفهوم موجود بديانة من المفروض ان تكون تدعو الى التسامح وتقبل الاخر؟

هذا الغموض في الديانة الدرزية الموحدة يطرح علامات استفهام كثيرة

شيق فعلا

Is Saed Joumblatt one of Walid Joumblatt's grandfathers? It looks like violence runs in the family.
