Sharia Committee Issues Fatwa Against ... Croissants

A sharia committee in a rebel-held area of Aleppo issued a fatwa deeming croissants ‘haram’ (forbidden in Islamic law) because of their “colonial” significance, pan-Arab daily Asharq al-Awsat reported on Tuesday.

Croissants’ crescent shape celebrates European victory over Muslims, according to the fatwa (religious ruling).

Rebel-controlled areas of the Syrian city have experienced several strict fatwas recently from Islamic sharia committees.

Such edicts are uncommon in Aleppo’s society, which usually adheres to moderate Islamic teachings, Asharq al-Awsat reported.

A sharia committee in the city issued a fatwa on Facebook prohibiting “Muslim women wearing makeup and tight clothes that reveal physical features from going out.”

A fatwa issued by the Council of the United Judiciary, affiliated with the rebel Free Syrian Army, stipulated a year in jail for anyone not fasting during the holy month of Ramadan.

Samir Nashar, a member of the opposition Syrian National Coalition, called on the FSA to unite its forces in Aleppo and work to prevent the expansion of these committees.

There are civil movements resisting the extremist tendencies of such committees, he told Asharq al-Awsat.

Well you see, croissants are so flakey and scrumptious because of butter. Butter comes from milk fat, and milk can come from goats. You know how those muzzies feel about their goats!

Crescents are evil? Talk about the banality of evil! What is that symbol that adorns the flag of Pakistan and other Islamic "nations?"


National Flag of Pakistan. May they all rot in Hell!

I know the Red Cross in the middle east is the Red Crescent.

When the Mooselimes came for the Croissant
I remained silent;
I was not a Croissant

When they locked up the Hostess Twinkie,
I remained silent;
I was not a Twinkie.

When they came for the Bagels.
I did not speak out;
I was not a bagel.

When they came for me,
I blew their brains out!

"I thought the Crescent was a Muslim symbol?"

The Battle of Vienna was apparently a culinary triumph:

"One legend is that the croissant was invented in Vienna, either in 1683 or during the earlier siege in 1529, to celebrate the defeat of the Ottoman attack of the city, with the shape referring to the crescents on the Ottoman flags. This version of the origin of the croissant is supported by the fact that croissants in French are referred to as Viennoiserie, and the French popular belief that Vienna-born Marie Antoinette introduced the pastry to France in 1770.

Another legend from Vienna has the first bagel as being a gift to King Jan Sobieski to commemorate the King's victory over the Ottomans that year. It was fashioned in the form of a stirrup, to commemorate the victorious charge by the Polish cavalry. The veracity of this legend is uncertain, as there is a reference in 1610 to a bread with a similar-sounding name, which may or may not have been the bagel.

After the battle, the Viennese discovered many bags of coffee in the abandoned Ottoman encampment. Using this captured stock, Franciszek Jerzy Kulczycki opened the third coffeehouse in Europe and the first in Vienna, where, according to legend, Kulczycki himself added milk and honey to sweeten the bitter coffee, thereby inventing cappuccino."

The black crescent was adopted by the American army to indicate food rations in WWI and is still used today.

In that picture it looks like crescent rolls not croissants. Are they banned to? I thought Muslims liked the crescent? Is there a Fatwa out for the Pillsbury Dough Boy?

well, truly speaking the Crescent moon is an Ottoman Turkic symbol

the Pakis are schizophrenic idiots as they are neither turkic nor arabs though they try to pretend to be the latter (while real Arabs laugh at them)

the Islamic flag is black, plain black

I would think that Arabs would like something that mocked their Turkic conquerors...

The croissant was first created to celebrate the Christian over the Ottomans at the battle of Lepanto which drove the Turks to the eastern Levant and saved Europe
