Shedding the Pseudo-Islamic Veneer will be Easy

The eight denominations of core Median Jewry (Alawism, Alevism, Alianism, Bektashism, Druzism, Shabakism, Yarsanism and Yezidism) all have to varying degrees a Pseudo-Islamic veneer as meant to protect against forcible conversion by Islamic religious imperialism. However, nothing in those Pseudo-Islamic veneers make Median Jews Muslims. In fact, core Median Jewry does not practice Islam and did not historically convert to Islam. Shedding the Pseudo-Islamic veneer will be far easier than what some might expect. Many Median Jews in the Middle East are already aware of being Jewish since the secret is already out of the bag and the knowledge that core Median Jewry is indeed Jewish has spread discreetly but rapidly by word of mouth in the past decade. However, when the government of Israel officially recognizes core Median Jewry as Jewish will this not only be welcomed by the vast majority of Median Jews but shedding the Pseudo-Islamic veneer will be very easy indeed.
