Syrian forces captured a leader of al-Qaeda dresses as a woman. Complete with burqa, makeup and lipstick. Raymond Ibrahim reported:
Yesterday, many Arabic-language Internet news websites posted the following pictures, purporting to be of the leader (or “emir”) of the al-Qaeda linked al-Nusra [“Victory”] Front, which is in Syria waging jihad. According to these reports, Abu Muhammad al-Jawlani had managed to pass several military checkpoints dressed as a woman, until he was arrested by the Syrian army in al-Jaswiya, al-Qusayr, in his attempt to flee to neighboring Lebanon: “He shaved his beard, worked his eyebrows, and put on mascara and lipstick till he looked exactly like a woman.”
At least he looked better than this lovely bride captured in Iraq in 2007. Nahrain.com reported: Iraqi security forces arrested a fake wedding procession. With fake bride (a man disguised as a bride) and groom who are wanted outlaws. The fake bride was one of the son’s of infamous Mahdi Army leader and killer of many Sunnis, Abu-Deraa, who is now hiding in Iran.
The full face covering burqa is a problem since they’re used by murderers, armed bank robberies, etc., but I couldn’t help laughing…
A good name for a blog – mascara lipstick and a burqa. 🙂
