    Glossy 'Jihad Cosmo' combines beauty tips with suicide bombing advice




    The slick, 31-page Al-Shamikha magazine - meaning The Majestic Woman - has advice for singletons on 'marrying a mujahideen'.

    Readers are told it is their duty to raise children to be mujahideen ready for jihad.
    I don't know how this can help the mujahideen's Western leftist supporters continue to make the case that: 1) they are a figment of the right's imagination, 2) they mean us no harm, 3) they only kill us because we aren't fair to them.


    The magazine includes exclusive interviews with the wives of martyrs, who praise their husband's suicide missions. A beauty column instructs women to keep their faces covered and stay indoors (file picture)

    Can you spot the cross dresser?

    As much as this will piss of someone I don't care, I have to say this is funny for the Cult to have a Rag that covers such diverse subjects that when combined become funny.

    I find it a bit uncanny also. Why would a magazine like this be published? I guess I need to look at who the publisher is. Who is this magazine aimed at?

    A magazine like this seems to undermine mainstream Islam's charade that violent jihad doesn't exist.

    Given that the source is the Daily Mail, I'm not convinced the magazine itself even exists.

    Daily Mail is a tabloid.

    Wow this is either really sad or really funny
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Very bizarre.

    Shamika’s table of contents lists articles on “Marrying a jihadist,” “Sharia law that applies to you” and “Your house is your kingdom,” as well as a “meeting with a jihad wife.” Not exactly a leading role for women.

    In the next issue, Shamikha looks like it’s going to get service-y. The Independent writes that issue No. 2 will have tips on waging “electronic jihad.” If so, then Shamikha is the Hairpin to Inspire’s Awl.

    Or they need fresh blood. May be getting harder to do moves with boys and young men.

    I wonder what their circulation numbers are... and where is NOW? This not only objectifies terrorism/jihadis but now objectifies a lack of womens rights while at the same time, giving tip for under the "covers". Pretty sick.

    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
