The Nusra Front, Al-Qaeda's affiliate in Syria, categorically rejected Monday a "code of honor" announced recently by a group of Islamist militias, accusing its comrades of embracing nonreligious values and political objectives.Observers said that the code of honor's emphasis on Syrian national interests and the rejection of religious extremism appeared to be an attempt to distance the conservative Islamist militias from the Nusra Front.In its nine-point response to the code of honor, Nusra said a number of points in the document lacked any religious foundation.Nusra complained that concepts of national affiliation were clearly more important than religious concepts in the code of honor.
