I wonder if I am the only one who more often than not prefers the "before" photos to the "after" ones. In this cross-dressing case below I am not quite sure...
Arabic-language Internet news websites have posted these pictures yesterday; I found them via vladtepes who suggests a new slogan for al-Qaeda:
"You can be your own virgin in paradise!"

"...[These pictures] purport 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 neighbouring Lebanon: "He shaved his beard, worked his eyebrows, and put on mascara and lipstick till he looked exactly like a woman." .....al-Jawlani would certainly not be the first jihadi leader to try to escape his enemies dressed as a woman..."
