you should write about the alawites, they're pretty weird too.... (or perhaps the alevi minority of turkey which seems to be off everyone's radar)
I don't know too much about the Alawites, who mostly live in Syria (I think they make up 12 percent of the population; Bashar Assad is an Alawite, and during the French colonial period, the Alawites along with the Marionite Christians were treated far better than the Sunni Muslims); I believe there are some Aliwites in Lebanon as well. I think they're a tenth century C.E. spinoff from the Ismaili Shi'ites. The name Aliwite derives from Ali, the son-in-law of the Prophet, whom the Alawites believe was an incarnation of the divine. Like the Druze, their holy books are only for the initiated; they read the Qur'an and follow Muslim rites, but some celebrate Christian holidays as well (Easter in particular). In the ceremonies of their elect, they use bread and wine. They have some sort of astrological component to their belief system, and also believe in metempsychoses, or reincarnation.
That's about all I know about them, but if I have some time later in the week I'll see what else I can find. As for the Alevi, I've heard the name but that's about it.
