The Flag for people of mixed Jewish and Druze faith, Reuniting the Tribes of Jacob and Jethro
The flag for persons who are a mixed interfaith of Jewish and Druze religions is composed of five colours: red, yellow, blue, white, and green. The five colours are reflective of the Druze flag while the Star of David and blue-white stripes commemorate the modern Israeli banner. Consequently any person who has one Jewish parent and one Druze parent, or some dynamic of this familial connection, may fly this flag to honor their graceful Druze and Jewish heritages. This lends the term Drewzish or Drewish?
So what is a Druze? Basically another less known and talked about faith from the Holy Land. The Druze people are a Semitic people with Arab window dressing. The Druze faith is connected to the Patriarch Abraham distinct from Islam, Christianity or Judaism. They also have thier own set of Divine Documents, known as the Letters of Wisdom. Uniquely the Druze are descended from the Biblical patriarch Jethro.
In America the name Jethro has a country bumpkin connotation or is associated with the hard rock band Jethro Tull. However people who regularly study the Bible will recognize that it invokes the spirit of the Old Testament, in particular Moses's father-in-law Jethro the Midianite.
