The Israeli Druze Faction (Arabic: الكتلة الدرزية الإسرائيلية, al-Ketla al-Druzia al-Isra'iliah, Hebrew: הסיעה הדרוזית הישראלית, HaSia'a HaDruzit HaYisraelit, also labelled as the 'Druze Party') was a short-lived, one-man political faction in Israel.


The party was established on 11 April 1967 during the sixth Knesset, when Jabr Muadi left Cooperation and Brotherhood.[1]

Before the 1969 elections, Muadi joined Progress and Development, thus effectively swapping parties with Elias Nakhleh, who had begun the session as a member of Progress and Development, then left to set up the Jewish–Arab Brotherhood before joining Cooperation and Brotherhood.
