Remembering the Taste of Damascus

"Once, talking about old bazaars and the smell of jasmine would have bored us. But now, with Syria on fire and its future so bleak, we seek refuge in clichés, stereotypes, and a nostalgia that may have once seemed silly to us."

Once Peppa was coined as the representative of “social folks”, imaginations of Chinese netizens began to flourish. With countless memes, emojis and short videos being made, every single Chinese social platform is flooded with Peppa. The topic #Peppapig on Sina Weibo has been viewed over 300 million times; on Bilibili, thousands of users left danmuku  (弹幕) confessing how they couldn’t stop watching the show. Creative netizens even remade episodes with their own dialects and reconstructed the story with twists of local culture; for instance, this Chongqing dialect version has been watched over 3 million times.

Instead of spending time to research what really was going on, they seemed to be merely attracted by the idea of censorship itself, the ultimate news ingredient that makes any China story juicer.

Although most Tajiks oppose violent extremism, it’s well-known that IS has a support base in Tajikistan. There are many paths that lead young men to radicalise, but it’s fair to say Tajikistan ticks all the boxes.

Dvoje biciklista koji su obilazili svet, prošlog meseca ubijeni su u terorističkom napadu u Tadžikistanu za koji su odgovornost preuzeli pripadnici ISIS-a. Istraživali smo koliko je boravak u ovom delu sveta bezbedan i da li možete krenuti na sličnu avanturu.
