Single Islamic Girl Seeking Harem Good Looks and Slick Bombing
Or so Al-Qauda, now launching the glossy Al-Shamikha [´majestic
woman´] Magazine mixing tips for sexier hijab and bloodier streets,
envisions the young Muslim women in the West. Given the
sobriquet ´Jihad Cosmo,´ the 31-page first issue features a front
cover with the barrel of a sub-machine gun next to a veiled woman.
Al-Samikha´s first editorial defines its purpose as educating women
and involving them in the war against the enemies of Islam.
"Because women constitute half of the population," the editorial
tells readers, "and one might even say that they are the population
since they give birth to the next generation - the enemies of Islam
are bent on preventing the Muslim woman from knowing the truth about
her religion and her role, since they know all too well what would
happen if women entered the field of jihad."
"The nation of Islam needs women who know the truth about their
religion and about the battle and its dimensions and know what is
expected of them."
The magazine contains exclusive interviews with terrorist "martyrs"
widows praising their husbands´ decision to die murdering others, and
marriage tips for young women seeking to marry ´mujaheddin´ [holy
warriors]. Prospective readers are told it is their moral duty to
give their lives for jihad, and raise children ready to do the same.
"From martyrdom, the believer will gain security, safety, and
happiness," Al-Samikha tells readers without explaining how these
benefits will be useful to readers no longer alive to purchase future
issues of the magazine.
The beauty column instructs women to cloister themselves indoors,
with faces covered to keep a "clear complexion." And, not to go
out "except when necessary," and then only in niqab to reap
the "rewards of complying with the will of Allah Almighty."
More traditional women-zine content features the merits of honey face
masks, etiquette, first aid, and avoiding ´toweling too forcibly.´
Al-Samikha is being distributed online by the Al-Qaeda media group
behind Inspire, a similar magazine encouraging young Muslims in the
West to commit terrorist atrocities. James Brandon of the anti-
extremism think tank Quilliam told the Daily Mail: "Al-Qaeda sees how
effective magazines are at pushing the ideals of western culture and
want to try the same thing."
The next issue will contain tips on skin care - and how to wage
electronic jihad. (© IsraelNN Syndications 03/16/11)
