Virgins of Paradise

Let's go to the movies, courtesy of Palestinian Media Watch:
A music video depicting a Shahid (Martyr for Allah) being rewarded by marrying the Dark Eyed Maidens (Virgins) of Paradise has returned to Palestinian Authority (PA) television.

The clip portrays a woman being shot in the back by Israeli soldiers. She is immediately transported to Paradise, where she joins other Maidens wearing identical long white gowns, all joyously dancing in water, waiting to marry their Shahid. The next scene depicts the grieving man visiting the woman's grave. He is likewise shot in the back by soldiers, and immediately transported to heaven to his reward of "Maidens."
PMW comments:
This is one of the longest-running music videos on PA TV and had been broadcast incessantly for years, often several times a day during the PA terror war (2000-2005). This recurring image of the Martyr being rewarded by receiving the Maidens was part of the multifaceted PA campaign glorifying and encouraging terror, and promoting suicide terror as idyllic Shahada (Martyrdom for Allah).

After an absence of more than a year, PA TV has begun broadcasting this video clip regularly for the past month.

The belief that man is rewarded with beautiful women in Paradise is based on Islamic traditions in the Quran [Suras 42, 44, 52, 56, and others] and the Hadith (traditions attributed to Muhammad), and is expressed regularly in many parts of PA society.
There are more videos from 'Palestinian' television here.
