Syria: And apfelstrudel is the devil’s work…

August 2, 2013

A SHARIA court in Aleppo in northern Syria has issued a religious edict banning croissants from the city, classifying them as “colonial” in another indication of the spread of conservative Islamic values in areas under the control of radical rebel groups.

Syria under the rule of the Baath Party, which has been in power since 1963, is nominally a secular state but the civil war that has raged for two years has radicalised much of the mainly Sunni population and given space for the emergence of Islamic radicals.
