Al-Qaeda's foray into the women's magazine market
Al-Qaeda Women's Magazine: "Cover Up and Marry a Martyr"
Not content with launching an English-language magazine called Inspire [pictured above] that featured an article called "How to Make a Bomb in Your Mom's Kitchen," al-Qaeda has followed up with a magazine for women, Al-Shamikha, which features a niqab-clad woman posing with a sub-machine gun on its cover.
It includes advice on finding the right man ("marrying a mujahideen" [Muslim fighter]) and how to achieve a perfect complexion (stay inside with your face covered).
