Volunteers give croissants 'Cope' to people after the Friday prayer outside the Grande Mosque of Paris on the first day of Eid al-Adha on October 26, 2012 in Paris. The croissants 'Cope' are given to protest against the October 5 remarks made by the general secretary of the rightist French Union for a Popular Movement (UMP) party, Jean-Francois Cope, to UMP supporters in Draguignan about a boy who allegedly had his 'pain au chocolat' (French pastries) stolen by 'thugs' during the fasting month of Ramadan. Eid al-Adha, or 'Feast of sacrifice' is celebrated throughout the Muslim world as a commemoration of Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son for God, with cows, camels, goats and sheep traditionally slaughtered on the holiest day.
