    72 virgins?

    I guess they'll be offered some sort of electronic equivalent - perpetual membership of 72 premium adult sites instead?

    More likely

    ... the powers that be are trying to distribute an Anti-Jihaadi Trojan to their PCs...

    It may work as described on the box, but it will probably add a Trojan key-logger of some kind to track the future activities of the Islamist morons that think they are participating in some "Great-Jihaad" (TM)(C) against "the Evil Imperialist Zionist Scum" (TM)(C)...

    Perhaps one of our Ruskie "friends" would lend us a botnet or 6 to take out Al-Queda before they get to us?

    It'd make a good story: 100 MILLION TROJAN FILLED XP BOXES CRASH OSAMA!

    Dear Cyber-Jihadi

    It has come to our attention that your machine was targetted by the filthy decadent infidels' counter-jihad software and your system was infected with a BIOS-destroying virus that has turned your glorious Jihad-PC into a door-stop.

    You are now officially listed as a VirtualMartyr in the Virtual Jihad. Please find enclosed photos of 72 Virgins* for your virtual paradise.

    If you ever get another functional computer you are welcome to join our ranks again.

    Praise be to Allah.
