        The beauty tip for clear skin is keep your face covered and stay indoors. 

        LOL?

        Nope.

        Do you read Arabic?

          well if that makes them feel good to be beautiful just for themselves, then so be it. Or maybe because it is Cosmopolitan, it has some type of Western type beauty tips influences. No, I can't read Arabic.

    I can't figure out why a magazine like this would be published in the first place.  I thought mainstream Islam was in denial about violent jihad. 

    This doesn't help them with the charade, does it?

    "Al Qaeda has reportedly launched Al-Shamikha (Arabic for "majestic woman"), a 31-page ladies' magazine, the Independent writes.

    SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors the "jihadist threat," first came across the magazine on March 3. It was allegedly released by the Al-Fajr Media Center, an online distributor of al-Qaeda propaganda and published by the "al-Shamikha Media Foundation" media group."

      Then not by main stream Islam at all then?

        Yes, but who will read a glossy women's mag?  Not women in huts.

        The second issue will include an article on internet jihad.

        I'm beginning to think that since al Qaida is having such a hard time accomplishing "successful" strikes with young men, they are going after young women.

        The magazine is a recruiting tool for young women.  But how does mainstream Islam feel about their daughters being targeted by al Qaida?  Will the magazine be on coffee tables in Muslim homes?

    al Qaida is a CIA front. bin Laden was on the CIA payroll the day of 9/11. Of course there are many self-starter independent offshoots. With any of this stuff, have to consider all the possibilities.

    AC - you and LaLo might do well to make use of the beauty tips.

    The magazine is in Arabic, and you want to be careful not to accidentally follow the suicide instructions. Just a suggesion because I like you both so much, and I'm aware how much trouble the English language gives you.
