10. Only the martyrs get the fast track to paradise, with the promised
virgins.

And it's not the killing that gets them there - it's dying for Allah. So the devout islamist soldier who is killed fighting the infidels in Iraq ALSO gets the same treatment, even if he is killed before slaying any of the enemy.

There are, in fact, fatwahs out that say that if an islamist deliberately kills innocents in his fight, then he will be DENIED paradise - but of course, the Islamic fundies cherrypick their scripture just as the christian fundies do here.
