    The magazine's editors explain their thinking in a launch issue preamble:

    "Because women constitute half of the population – 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."

    Analysts say the idea is to market global jihad with the same slick feel as Cosmopolitan or Marie Claire push Western culture to young women. Al-Shamikha certainly isn't the first jihadist magazine for women. It follows others such as The Granddaughters of Khansa, which launched in February 2010 only to fold after two editions. It bore a number of similarities to Al-Shamikha.

    The US security establishment is reportedly concerned with al Qa'ida's publishing ambitions, which are self-evidently intended to recruit followers among the wider Muslim world.

    For years I have toyed with pitching a concept to Gloria Steinem to do a Pro Abortion Rag called "The Women's Movement", with the cover of issue number one begin a slut sitting on a clear glass toilet, excreting a fetus, and reading Cosmopolitan. I think there is a market. Could hit up AARP to buy ad space, maybe Proctor and Gamble for tampon ads.

    Ya, that seems the most likely explanation to me too. Certainly more likely than a bunch of dudes living in caves decided to get together and write a magazine geared toward, umm, no one in particular.

    Is this magazine going to start popping up at the Saudi equivalent of Walgreen's? I highly doubt it.

    You know, it's pretty ironic to tell a woman to look pretty before she goes on a suicide bombing mission, when she is actually going to look really, really ugly afterwards.

    This made me laugh.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    Why would you want a picture of someone having a miscarriage on a magazine?

    people really believe this?

    the first hint that it's fake is on the front cover.


    who's the more foolish? the fool or the fool who follows him?
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.
