Are alawis good people?

yes, alawis are indeed good people however many people make them look bad. Alawis follow the 12 shia islam religion a large number of alawis do belive in the Caliphs but not as rightful successors of the prophet Mohammad (s).
Alawis do pray and fast but there is a small proportion which do not preform these pillars but this is entirely up to them, not that the whole alawi religion doesn't do so.
in conclusion they are very good people as long as their religion is respected they will treat anyone with equal respect ie Shia, sunni, and Christians
