Since 1948, Israel has adopted a policy of co-option of the Druze minority among its population. However, despite their partial co-option, the Druze are subjected to the same political, social, and economic discrimination as the rest of the Palestinians. While some Druze elements have sought to resist the policies of the Jewish state, these attempts have so far been marginal. Whether future generations, in light of their growing awareness of discrimination and the ongoing resistance of the Palestinian population, manage to undo the effects of co-option is a question yet to be answered.
