Women plead with al-Qa’eda to join jihad.  Heck of a sight on a Monday morning but ….

This is what our world is filled with these days.

Women are challenging al-Qa’eda’s refusal to include – or acknowledge – females in its ranks as an “equal rights” debate rages in the Muslim terrorist organisation.

Muslim extremist women are challenging al-Qaida’s refusal to include – or acknowledge – females in its ranks as an “equal rights” debate shakes the terrorist organisation.

In response to a female questioner, al-Qa’eda second in command Ayman Al-Zawahri said in April that a woman’s role limited to caring for the homes and children of al-Qa’eda fighters.

His remarks have since prompted an outcry from fundamentalist women, who are fighting or pleading for the right to be terrorists.

One woman, who dubbed herself a “companion of weapons”, wrote a 2,000-word essay of protest at the organisation’s position.

“How many times have I wished I were a man ... When Sheikh Ayman al-Zawahri said there are no women in al-Qa’eda, he saddened and hurt me,” she wrote. “I felt that my heart was about to explode in my chest...I am powerless.”

Such postings have appeared anonymously on discussion forums of websites that host videos from al-Qa’eda leader Osama bin Laden.

Many appear to represent computer-literate women arguing for rights within a feudal version of Islam, said the SITE group, which monitors the forums.

And despite the pronouncements, several women have been used as suicide bombers in Iraq. Hamas, meanwhile, is open about using women fighters. At least 11 Palestinian women have launched suicide attacks in recent years.

“A lot of the girls I speak to ... want to carry weapons. They live with this great frustration and oppression,” said Huda Naim, a prominent women’s leader, Hamas member and Palestinian MP in Gaza.

“We don’t have a special militant wing for women ... but that doesn’t mean that we strip women of the right to go to jihad.”

Zawahiri said a Muslim woman should “be ready for any service the mujahideen need from her,” but advised against travelling to a war front like Afghanistan without a male guardian.

His first wife and at least two of their six children were killed in a US airstrike in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar in 2001. He later accused the US of intentionally targeting women and children in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“I say to you ... [I have] tasted the bitterness of American brutality: my favourite wife’s chest was crushed by a concrete ceiling,” he wrote in a 2005 letter.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
