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.
