    Incidentally, re jihadists, there is a dispute among Koranic scholars as to whether the 82 virgins promised to martyrs in paradise isn't a mistranslation of the ancient Syriac word "hurs" into the Arabic word "houris". Houris, in Arabic, are nubile maidens, "hurs" in Syriac are white raisins. (Recruiting officer to prospective suicide bomber:
    "Hey, 82 virgins or 82 raisins, either way you're ahead, right?")
