According to a July 22, 2020 article on PMW:
Since the Palestinian Authority started its terror campaign — the second Intifada — in 2000, it has been promising terrorist Martyrs that as Muslims they will be rewarded in Paradise with 72 Dark-Eyed Virgins. The promises are given in religious lessons, statements by political figures, and poems and music videos, while funeral notices are worded as “wedding” announcements.
As a recent example, the article cites a Palestinian music video that “reminds viewers that death as a ‘Martyr’ is really a ‘wedding’ to the 72 Virgins of Paradise.” Another video shows a Palestinian cleric brainwashing young children with dreams of “martyrdom” and subsequent “marriage to the Dark Eyed Virgins of Paradise” — even as the children, who appear oblivious to his words, scream, “Allahu akbar!”
Who are these “dark-eyed virgins in paradise” that “yearn” — as another Palestinian figure phrased it — for martyrs, for those Muslims who, in the Koran’s words, “slay and are slain” (9:111)?
The proper Arabic term for these entities is hour al-‘ayn, commonly known by the English transliteration houri(s) (pronounced ḥoor). They are supernatural, celestial women — “wide-eyed” and “big-bosomed,” says the Koran (56:22, 78:33) — created by Allah for the express purpose of sexually gratifying his favorites in perpetuity. (Whether or not the English word “whore” is etymologically connected to the Arabic houri appears a moot point, as they both seem to serve the same function.). MORE HERE
