Mujahid or Mujahidette?

Only your… ahem… sugar daddy knows for sure.

Raymond Ibrahim has a fascinating (and hilarious) account of an attempted escape by the emir of the al-Nusra Front in Syria, who disguised himself as a woman wearing a niqab in an attempt to escape to Lebanon.

Mr. Ibrahim’s text is below. But don’t miss the photos of this delightful pseudo-mujahidette, who shaved his fistful of beard and dolled himself up with eye shadow and lipstick to try to be convincing.
