Cleric: Zarqawi's wedding with virgins has begun

From Ynet:

As news of the death of Iraqi al-Qaeda terror chief Abu Musab al-Zarqawi filtered through jihadist internet forums, many members of radical organizations expressed 'joy' at what they described as Zarqawi's 'martyrdom' and imminent 'wedding' with virgins. Sheikh Omar Bakri, a top pro al-Qaeda jihadist preacher who is based in Lebanon, and who has a number of disciples in Britain, was quoted by one of his followers on the UK-based Muntadaa internet forum as saying that al-Zarqawi is now being 'married' to virgins in heaven, the fate he said awaited 'martyrs' of Islam.

I wonder, could we send a present to the newlyweds via the good services of the learned Sheikh? He will be able to use the opportunity to partake of the supply of the virgins (or raisins or Virginians, as the case may be).

P.S. As an aside: the Blogger spell checker tries to translate "Zarqawi" into "carcass". Let's see:

Noun: carcass

The dead body of an animal especially one slaughtered and dressed for food

I am not that sure about eating Zarqawi, unless one is a worm, but otherwise - bull's eye!
