you can send the picture directly to me, with the 65 KB restriction it is indeed difficult to post a good resolution.
I guess the name of the person tells us where the medal is from

The inscription under the portrait reads: the Honorable Sheikh Amin Tarif (فضيلة الشيخ امين طريف).

Apparently, he was the spiritual leader of the Druze in Israel, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amin_Tarif.
The reverse of the medal praises his religious merits.

So, the medal could have been produced in Israel or the neighboring countries. But maybe there is a Druze community elsewhere.

Interesting indeed  :)

This is an old thread. I'd spotted two posts with the same question, missed the third. They are all together now and the duplicate posts are deleted. Sorry for the confusion.

The Druze community is a fairly influential minority in Lebanon. But in absolute numbers, the majority reside in syria
