“72 raisins? Well that would suck.”
During CNN’s prime-time special ‘Why They Hate Us’ hosted by Fareed Zakaria, the infamous Muslim advocate says that there’s a big misinterpretation in the Quran when jihadists site that they will receive “72 virgins” when they die.
Zakaria says the Quran’s word for “virgins” actually means “raisins,” and therefore jihadists are actually only blowing themselves up for “72 raisins.”

72 raisins? Doesn't quite have the appeal of 72 virgins does it? That's the deal martyrs don't get the girls they get dried grapes. Raisins.

The word virgin in the Koran was actually the word
"raisin" originally. Imagine dying for 72 raisins.

The Quran says that in heaven you get 72 raisins, not virgins. Imagine the surprise of the terrorists when they see raisins and not virgins.

CNN Islam expert says Koran mistranslated, actually says 72 RAISINS, not 72 virgins. I'd be bummed if I blew myself up & got raisins.
