Female warrior at the trough

Malika El Aroud, a 48-year-old Belgian, is one of the most prominent internet jihadists in Europe. She doesn't set off bombs herself, just urges others to do so. She is the widow of the Al Qaeda terrorist who killed Ahmed Shah Massoud, the leader of the anti-Taliban Northern Alliance in Afghanistan, just before September 11, 2001. She has since remarried; in 2007, she and her new husband were convicted in Switzerland for operating Al Qaeda websites.

Malika is a role model in more ways than one. Not only does she inspire women to join the jihad, but she shows that her way of life pays - she collects more than $1,100/month in Belgian unemployment benefits. More details here, thanks to Jiihad Watch.
