Music Video depicting Shahid (Martyr) Greeted by Maidens

This music video, depicting a Shahid joining beautiful maidens in heaven, has been broadcast hundreds of times over the past three years on PA TV. The clip begins with scenes depicting a romance that is cut short when soldiers shoot a woman in the back. The woman goes immediately to heaven, where she joyously joins other young woman all dressed in identical long white gowns - the "Maidens of Paradise."
The maidens are dancing in water, a clear depiction of the Islamic tradition of the Afterlife, which the Koran repeatedly says has "flowing streams". Later in the video, the man visits the woman's grave and the soldiers shoot him in the back as well.   At the moment he falls to the ground, he immediately goes up to heaven and joins the "Maidens."

This promise of "72 Dark Eyed" Virgins as taught on PA TV by PA religious leaders:

 "When the Shahid meets his Maker, all his sins are forgiven from the first gush of blood. He is exempted from the torments of the grave (Judgment); he sees his place in paradise, he is shielded from the great shock, and marries 72 Dark Eyed [the Virgins or Maidens of Paradise].  He is an 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. 
[Dr. Ismail al-Radouan, PATV August 17, 2001]

Mother: My son aspired to Shahada in order to marry the maidens of Paradise.

"Mother of Abdallah on PA TV:
"He would always dream of Shahada, it was his first and last goal in life... I told him: 'Dear, we all want to be Shahids...'
He said: "In this entire world I can't think of anyone to marry... I want to marry the Dark Eyed (Virgins or Maidens of Paradise). I said: If these are his thoughts I wish for him Shahada." [PATV, Jan. 21, 2003]

Bomb Boy Nightmare (New York Post 3/25/04)

This teenage Palestinian homicide bomber, wearing an 18 pound explosive belt -- was discovered in the nick of time as he tried to cross a West Bank checkpoint. 

Abdo told investigators he was given the explosive belt by adults who said his "sexual difficulties" would be solved by the 72 virgins he would meet in paradise after he became a Muslim martyr...

The boy, who  later said he had been told to detonate the bomb as soon as he reached an Israeli flag at the checkpoint, had second thoughts about death.  

"Please! I want to live," he cried, "Get me out of this!"
