I would not want to be under Moslem "protection". Far better to let Jews protect Jews in their own country. I don't know if the Mufti recognizes Israel as a Jewish state or not? If not he is much like the rest of the religious establishment of the Arab mid-east. Also, most Syrian Jews left some years ago, probably less that a few dozen.
