Motivating Muslim Men

I read this (in which a muslim cleric says that those who masturbate will have a pregnant hand in the afterlife) a few months ago and was convinced that the moronic men who passed for islamic clerics couldn't get any stupider. But this has had my sides in excruciating pain from long bouts of laughter. Is this really the reason young men blow themselves up with suicide vests and fly planes into buildings? Islamic clerics keep reminding young muslim men of the 72 virgins that await them in paradise. But this particular Saudi cleric has added that not only are the breasts of the virgins like pomegranates, their virginities are renewed each and everyday and they become even more lustful and feminine!
After writing about the menace of Boko Haram, especially in the last few weeks, I have always wondered what the motivation was for the young men who continue to carry out the suicide attacks. Illiterate young men with raging hormones who are camped out in  the middle of Sambisa forest in Borno state, will certainly be easy to convince that 72 virgins will be waiting for them in heaven if only they are 'martyred', and to be a martyr, you put on a suicide vest and blow yourself up in a crowded market place, mosque, or park. Bingo! 72 virgins are yours to take their virginities every morning, and according to the latest moronic Saudi cleric, you will have "the virility to sleep with a hundred virgins in a single morning." Has anyone ever stopped to ask what is in store in paradise for muslim women? I still continue to wonder...
