The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria poses an existential threat to all minorities in the region, including in Lebanon, Hezbollah head Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah emphasized to Druze leader Walid Jumblatt during their first meeting in three years.Jumblatt was eager to talk about the danger posed by ISIS in Iraq and Syria, speaking of the "heinous genocide and massacres" it carried out.The conversation rattled Jumblatt, the official said, prompting him to realize the extent and seriousness of the ISIS threat. The Druze leader immediately organized a tour of the Chouf in order to alert the Druze, whose number in Lebanon does not exceed 400,000, that ISIS is not only the concern of Christians and Yezidis in Iraq and Syria; rather, it is a genocidal group bent on erasing minorities from the region.
