Al Qaeda's New Magazine for Women Mixes Beauty and Bomb Tips


Would-be female Islamist extremists Sunday were awaiting copies of Al Qaeda's newly-launched women's magazine, which mixes tips on skin care with articles on marrying suicide bombers and waging electronic jihad.

Al Shamikha magazine -- its title means "The Majestic Woman" -- features beauty and fashion tips alongside articles on "marrying a mujahedeen" and carrying out suicide attacks.

The first issue of the glossy 30-page publication, which must be ordered online, was released in recent days by the Al Qaeda-affiliated Al Fajr Media Center.

Its cover features the barrel of a sub-machine gun next to the image of a woman in a veil. Inside, there are exclusive interviews with martyrs' wives who praise their husbands' decisions to die in suicide bombings. Many other articles have female authors.

The aim of the magazine, according to editor Saleh Youssef, is to educate women and involve them in the war against the enemies of Islam.

Its bad enough the way women are treated by extremist groups, but this just tkaes it to a whole new level that I thought would be impossible.

I wonder what the spring line suicide vest looks like.

What can we look forward to in the next publication - exfoliation and electronic jihad.

It might be wise to investigate the source and producer of this "magazine" because there's another English only 'Al Qaeda" magazine around and it's of dubious origins. I'll leave it to everyone else to go after that and come to the same conclusions I did about it's veracity.

Everything about this goes against the Muslim faith. I agree most organized religions, in their current fashion, merely foment hatred and racism.

I think the phrase "goes against the Muslim faith" is somewhat misleading. As an example, under Sharia law, in order to convict a female for adultry, there must be 3 witnesses to the act. We see women executed where that did not occur.

I think he meant suicides go against the Muslim faith, which they do, because in Islam, the quran is the law and it states comitting suicide will make you end up in hell.

Arabic porn has seemingly made it to the mainstream websites, so it does look like things over there are getting looser. I think the women just ought to take over and subjugate the men instead. Make them all save their beards and wear a burka everywhere.
