The Sunni Syrian rebels are making quite a bit of progress. For example, they've outlawed women driving

This is why the provisional Military and Civil Councils of Aleppo have explained the situation to the inhabitants of Aleppo, and have decreed that women are now forbidden to drive. Any person who disobeys this order will be punished until they renounce the practice, if necessary, by the use of force.
And that's not the only taboo in the newly Islamofascist-dominated town of Aleppo: even pictures of family - especially women - are decreed haram
“My son slept here,” Abu Ghaybar said, standing in his only child’s room. He spotted a blue tricycle atop a small four-door pine dresser. “My son keeps saying ‘baba, are the free army playing with my toys?” (The rebels had their own toys in the room, including a BKC machine gun in one corner.)
Abu Ghaybar moved into the living room, unplugging the TV and removing a few colored pencils from a drawer in the TV cabinet. He gathered up family photos, including a baby picture of his now five-year-old son. He pointed to a bare wall with two nails protruding from it. “My family portraits were here, where are they?” he asked.
“We burnt them,” said one of the dozen or so rebels in the room. “You know, if we come into a house and there are pictures of uncovered women we burn them.”
Yes, the very "rebellion" that's being approved of by Obama, Hollande and Cameron is now imposing these very regressive sharia-based principles upon the rest of the population wherever they're going around Syria. In other words, the country is bound to end up in a situation not all that different from what it's like in Saudi Arabia.
