Omar Bin Laden, the fourth eldest son of the Al Qaeda leader, has denounced his killing as ‘criminal’ and said he reserves the right to take legal action against America. Read more.

Good luck with that.

MI6: Operation Cupcake

British intelligence used cupcake recipes to ruin al-Qaida website

An Al-Qaeda online magazine had instructions on how to make lethal pipe bombs, as well as articles by Osama bin Laden and his deputy Ayman al-Zawahir has been hacked by British intelligence agency MI6. The agents involved replaced all the content with encrypted cupcake recipes instead. Pretty amusing. It may have been more prudent to simply monitor the chatter and traffic on the site to gather intelligence, but the operation is still funny. (via The Telegraph)

Inside a new Al Qaeda magazine for Muslim women

Al-Shamikha magazine

Al-Shamikha magazine

Don’t say they’ve never done anything for you ladies. Al Qaeda has a new magazine on the stands just for women. Al-Shamikha offers women tips on things like skin care, etiquette, niqab wearing, and marriage. Oh, and they also provide some essential advice on jihad and martyrdom.

The magazine cover shows a fully covered Muslim woman and a picture of a machine gun. Just like Cosmopolitan magazine has a “Fun, Fearless Female” award, Al-Shamikha honors the women it admires, too.  Except these women are the wives of martyrs who have blown themselves up to kill infidels.

But as we all have heard, Islam is a peaceful religion.
