This is terrorist way of celebrating International Women's Day, a few days early.


On March 4, 2011, the Al-Qaeda-affiliated Al-Fajr Media Center released the first issue of Al-Shamikha, a jihadist electronic magazine for women. The magazine, published by a new media company called Al-Shamikha Media Foundation and posted on several jihadi forums, features advice and tips for women from a hard-line Islamic perspective, alongside articles meant to inculcate jihadist ideology and values.

The editor's name is given as Saleh Youssef, and a man named Muhammad Al-Mashhadani is listed as being responsible for "security and contacts." The articles themselves are mostly written by women.

The editorial of the first issue explains that the goal of the magazine is to educate women and involve them in the war against the enemies of Islam. It says: "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… Women bear the greatest responsibility for rescuing the ummah from the quagmire of indifference and weakness in which it has been living for generations… Let us be Muslims as Allah wants us to be, in [our] faith, values, appearance, and actions…"
