El Al Hires First Druze Flight Attendant
The Israeli airline El Al has hired its first Druze flight attendant. Merach Kara, from the Druze village of Daliyat al-Karmel near the northern city of Haifa, has wanted to be a flight attendant since she was a child. “During our first-ever flight, when I was four years old, I held my father’s hand and told him – I want to be like her,” she told Israeli news site Ynet, referring to a flight attendant. The Druze population makes up under two percent of the Israeli population.
