The newly released Al Shamikha magazine, whose title means “The Majestic Woman”, is described as a 30 or 31 page (depending on the source, Daily Mail says 31 while FOX reports 30 pages) glossy magazine which features beauty and fashion tips alongside articles on “marrying a mujahedeen” and carrying out suicide attacks against enemies of Isalm.
Why Is Jihad Cosmo FAKE?
Sure it would be easy to accept Muslim women are interested in beauty and hooking up with a soon to be Al Qaeda martyr. Many of the talking points of the web published articles are consistent with the stereotyped Islamic woman in Western Society. The combination of beauty, fashion and holy war have been tried and tested in magazines like Vogue and Marie Claire with the Puritan pout and last year’s foray into the messy Pentecostal Up-do that rocked the catwalks and most of New Jersey. So it really isn’t much of stretch to include suicide bombings.
James Brandon, a spokesman for the UK Quilliam – an anti-extremism think tank, told the British The Sunday Times that Muslim extremist leaders “see how effective magazines are at pushing the ideals of Western culture and as a result they have come up with a jihadist’s version of Cosmopolitan magazine.”
This all sounds reasoned and plausible. The problem is has anyone ever published a 31 page magazine? No they haven’t. Magazines, like all hard copy press have pages published in multiples of four, including the cover. The magazine page count promulgated by the Daily Mail of 31 does not compute. Even the Fox News count seems off at 30. Both of these numbers, presented by the lackluster fact checking choir of these “news outlets” go completely unquestioned.
Printing presses require page counts in multiples of four, eight or sixteen depending on the type of run. Prime numbers, such as 31 are an impossible feat for a magazine page composition. In addition, no one has seen an actual hard copy of the magazine. Copies need to be ordered via the website, another suspicious and verified fact to consider.
Why is Al Qaeda Running a Trick and Troll?
Because the active promulgation of fundamentalist ideas and mores, elevated to the extreme, are widely accepted as truth on first blush and if repeated throughout the media circle will be accepted as truth and gospel scripture. This is dependent on a readership and viewer base that is numb and pliant, whose critical thinking skills have been stripped bare and repeatedly raped. The result of this continuous assault is one of two outcomes.
Indifference or Persecution?
Dom Cobb: What is the most resilient parasite? A bacteria? A virus? An intestinal worm?
Arthur: Ah, what Mr. Cobb is trying to…
Dom Cobb: An idea – Resilient, highly contagious. Once an idea has taken hold of the brain it’s almost impossible to eradicate. An idea that is fully formed, fully understood. That sticks, right in there somewhere.

Yes, the most resilient parasite is an idea. An idea deforms (notice the same root word as inform) the actions of many to a single objective and can take on new life with an uncontrollable reactive dynamic. An idea can also create indifference.
Indifference is the tool to lull the hapless into a sleep of Islamic acceptance and rejection of Chris†ianity as the true faith.
Perhaps some will dismiss the “Jihad Cosmo” fakery as some Western raised Al Queda troll trying to vie for attention. The additional page hits for interwebs wastrels and satiated porn packers might bring a few dollars, but the real value is in the idea planted and nurtured.
If this truly is a planted idea, is Congressman Peter King a master gardener? It is fully reported that the Congressman’s series of hearings titled “The Extent of Radicalization in the American Muslim Community and that Community’s Response” are being held to root out the Muslim threat in America. Many Christians applaud the action, but isn’t that what Al Quaeda wants according to this trolling of the “Jihad Cosmo”? Congressman King has certainly aligned himself with terrorist groups in the past (he likes the Irish terrorist group, IRA as a facebook friend), and we have no good reason to believe he is or is not doing the same here. It would be consistent if Congressman King were conducting these hearings with the support of Al Quaeda in a well orchestrated ruse on the American people.
Stop Feeding the Jihad Troll! Persecution Belongs to Jesus!
Aside from giving many of the Atheist liberals fodder for their daily dose of superiority with haughty mockery of belief allows the Muslims something Christians have enjoyed for centuries – the sacrament of persecution.
The sacrament of persecution is the Church orphaned rite that Jesus specifically gave to Christians and Christians ONLY! Church leaders will, when called upon, deliver doses of embarrassment and sexual scandal in remembrance of the passion of Christ. The Al Quaeda Jihad relies on persecution for the holy fire to drive the engine of war. Christians need persecution to get to heaven.
“If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you… If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you… because they do not know Him who sent Me.”
“Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven….”
In summary, Christians should be outraged at the attention this fake Muslim Women’s magazine is gathering on the interwebs. The mockery and persecution are rightfully Christian values, not Islamic idiom for the popularity and filling the coffers of Al Quaeda with google advertising dollars.
