Suicide terror & Shahada
Martyrs rewarded with 72 Virgins
Suicide terror & Shahada
People who see life as the supreme value have difficulty understanding the mind of the suicide terrorist. Why were so many Palestinians willing and eager to kill themselves in terror attacks against Israel?

In order to create willingness among the population to confront Israel violently, the PA took advantage of the ancient tradition in Islam, Shahada or Death for Allah, which mandates Muslims to aspire to die in combat for Islam. The PA told their people that this ancient tradition also applies to them in confrontation with Israel today.

This indoctrination began shortly after the start of the PA terror campaign (the "Intifada," 2000-2005) and continues today. The PA promotes Shahada as a mandatory religious Islamic duty, both for adults and children, promising great rewards.
Martyrs rewarded with 72 Virgins
The most prominent reward that Palestinian Martyrs are repeatedly promised are the 72 Dark-Eyed Virgins in Paradise. A Palestinian religious leader explained that this is authentic Islam, whose purpose is to “fill Muslims with desire for Paradise”:
"He [Muhammad] said (in a Hadith, Islamic tradition): 
 ‘[There is] a palace of pearls in Paradise and in it seventy courts of ruby... And in each court [there are] seventy houses of green emerald stone. In every house, seventy beds. On every bed, seventy mattresses of every color and on every mattress a woman.’ (Hadith)
The writing of the Prophet [Muhammad in this Hadith]... is intended to fill Muslims with desire for Paradise... to be worthy of it, because only three dwell there: Prophets, Righteous and Shahids (Martyrs for Allah)."
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 2, 2004]

The message comes from all parts of society, including religious leaders, TV news reports, schoolbooks, and even music videos. Newspapers routinely describe the death and funerals of terrorists as their “wedding.” The indoctrination has impacted so significantly on Palestinian society that mothers celebrate their sons’ death as “weddings” and some even state that their sons’ motivation to fight Israel and be killed was to reach Paradise and marry the Dark-Eyed Virgins.

This music video is an example of the PA's continuous indoctrination of this message. The longest running music video on PA TV, originally aired in 2000 and broadcast regularly in 2010, shows a male Martyr being greeted in Islam’s Paradise by dark eyed women all dressed in white. As the PA religious leader wrote, its purpose is to “fill Muslims with desire for Paradise.”

The following are more examples of how the reward of 72 virgins for Shahids is expressed in Palestinian society:

Mother of suicide bomber: "When notified [of my son's death] I restrained myself, and said: 'Praise Allah.' I kissed him everywhere, and said: 'Praise Allah.' I cried out in joy and said: 'Praise Allah, he is a Shahid (Martyr) Shahid, Shahid. He asked for Martyrdom.' Once he joked with me: 'Mother, I want to get married.' I answered: 'Praise Allah.' Then he said: 'And Shahada (Death for Allah).' I said: 'How do you plan to marry?' He answered: '72 Dark-Eyed [Maidens] are waiting for me.'" Click here to view

Mother of Shahid (Martyr) says she supported her son's death aspiration:
   “He would always dream of Shahada (Martyrdom). It was his first and last goal in life.
I told him: 'Dear, we all want to become Shahids (Martyrs).'
He said: 'In this entire world, I cant think of anyone to marry. I want to marry the Dark-Eyed (Maidens of Paradise).'
I said: 'If these are his thoughts, I wish him Shahada.'” Click here to view

Dr. Ismail Radwan, Professor of Hadith, Islamic University: “When the Shahid (Martyr for Allah) meets the Lord, all his sins are forgiven from the first gush of blood, and he is exempted from the torments of the grave. He sees his place in Paradise. He is shielded from the Great Shock and marries 72 Dark-Eyed (Virgins). He is a heavenly advocate for 70 members of his family. On his head is placed a crown of honor, one stone of which is worth more than all there is in this world.” Click here to view
