Women's magazine offers tips to terrorists
Washington Times ^ | 1/17/05 | John Phillips

ROME — Al Qaeda has introduced an online women's magazine with articles including dietary advice for suicide bombers and tips on how to "dominate the passions" before blowing yourself up,

[snip]

"Among the Web pages of this newly born female review in Arabic, you won't find the usual fashion features that fill the pages of ladies' magazines the world over, except for a section dedicated to fitness with advice on diet and training to follow so as to acquire not a catwalk waistline, but martyrdom in the holy war."
    With its bizarre format including articles on "breathing gymnastics to conquer the passions," evidently essential knowledge for those tempted to have a final fling before strapping on an explosive-laden corset, Al Khansa could indicate that al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden has made a strategic choice in favor of "women's emancipation through martyrdom," according to the Gnosis report.

[snip]

But, the Italian spy review said, it is not clear whether al Qaeda's call to arms for women represents "female emancipation," or rather "a tactic to involve all components of the [Islamic community] in the global jihad."
    The enhanced role for women evidently reflects a sense of urgency to drive foreign forces from Islamic territory, Gnosis concluded. It noted that as recently as May 2003, the influential Egyptian sheik Yussuf al-Qaradawi issued an edict blessing "aspiring [female] kamikazes for use in the interests of the holy war, freeing them of the duty of modesty and public invisibility."

[snip]

Al Qaeda's concept of emancipation does not extend to "the promiscuity of Arab television stations," SISDE's analysis added. Al Khansa considers "as a form of prostitution the presence of female announcers without burqas on the Saudi television network Al-Ekhbariya."

Or that al Qaeda's running out of male volunteers.

"A female militant must also "be content with what is strictly necessary, sending televisions and air conditioners to be burned." She should offer her own money for the cause and know how to shoot and "how to carry munitions on her shoulder."

Well....CBS better watch out.....As for air conditioners......I'll FIGHT ANYBODY FOR THAT!

It sounds about as insane and mad as western feminism's slogan:

"Kill your children, and be liberated."

What they really need is an Islamo-facist Martha Stewart show. "Today we will learn a quick Molotov Cocktail recipe, tips for decorating suicide belts, and how to harvest radioactive substances from smoke detectors for your own home made dirty bomb."

Are female terrorists also rewarded with 72 male virgins?

Tha darkest, most degenerate known to mankind. These animals are on a mass suicide mission and just want to take as many of the rest of us with them as possible.
