IRANIAN Surprise!

There are signs that the rift between Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Iranian spiritual leader Ayatollah Ali Khameni is widening.

Allies of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad were arrested this week for being “magicians” and invoking spirits, Iranian website reported on Wednesday.
Ahmadinejad’s chief of staff Esfandiar Rahim Mashaei as well as other people close to the Iranian president were accused of invoking djinns.
One of the arrested men, Abbas Ghaffari, was called “a man with special skills in metaphysics and connections with the unknown worlds,” Iranian news site Ayandeh reported.


and the Magicians in the West thought kids parties and Bar Mitzvahs were a tough audience….

April 24, 2011
Saudi Arabia’s feared Islamic police arrested a sorceress who had practiced witchcraft on 98 victims, a newspaper reported on Tuesday.

Members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice raided the house of the 50-year-old Saudi woman in a village in the southern province of Asir, Sabq Arabic language daily said.
“They found talismans and other witchcraft tools in her house….the members also found a list containing the names and addresses of 98 families who have been victims to her activities,” the paper said.
“The woman will stand trial for practicing sorcery while Commission experts were called in to neutralize the effects and spells of her talismans and other tools.”  via  eye-on-the-world.blogspot.com Emirates 24/7 and image via mortalbeastsanddeities.com

Mobile Phone Dealer Explains Qadhafi-Zionist Witchcraft

April 15, 2011
An Australian reporter writes the following from Libya:

“Gaddafi’s forces have had the upper hand in the desert battle that has raged for more than a month.

“Rebels say this is because of black magic. They invoke Satan. `These are magic papers,’ said mobile phone dealer turned rebel Ashraf al Houmi, 25. The papers-185 pages of writing, symbols and numbers-were found near abandoned government tanks.

“`This is the Israeli Star of David and this is some of the Koran backwards. The Koran reversed is Satan,’ explained Khaled el Faitouri, 27. “`We know they can do black magic with these drawings.'”

Now I wouldn’t have bothered with this except for one thing: the amazing disconnect between being a mobile phone dealer and believing in this kind of thing. Possibly al-Houmi also repairs phones.

Westerners assume that technology and thinking precisely the way they do goes together. Not so. Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini pioneered in using tape cassettes for spreading Islamist revolution. Back in 1979 that was the equivalent of using social media. Revolutionary Islamists have used the Internet far more effectively than democratic reformers in the Middle East. Technology does not necessarily mean moderation or democracy.

That old black magic is in danger in Saudi Arabia

April 6, 2011

From Arab News, a story that never gets old:

A total of 30 officials of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice (Haia) have been trained on how to deal with cases of black magic.
The three-day training program was held in the Eastern Province city of Al-Ahsa.
The commission has achieved remarkable successes in combating black magic in various parts of the country. It has set up nine specialized centers in the main cities to deal with black magicians.
The majority of people arrested for practicing black magic in the Kingdom are Africans and Indonesians.

According to a report received by Arab News, a single specialized center had dealt with 586 cases involving black magic, showing the enormity of the problem.
About 50 cases were reported in Jeddah alone in the first half of 2009. Gurayat and Qunfuda also reported high rates of black magic cases during that year.
The Riyadh governorate last year launched a campaign against black magicians and those who illegally treat people by reading from the Qur’an.
Only qualified Saudis are allowed to practice Qur’anic treatment methods. Expatriates practicing such treatments would be caught and deported.

I’ve seen plenty of articles about how the Commission is fighting black magic, but I hadn’t heard that there are certified Quranic witch doctors before!
Thanks to Allah, I found a webpage that could explain this to me more fully. The author says “I graduated from the US, from where I obtained MA degree in clinical psychology. (Spiritually Oriented Psychotherapy), too, I am qualified, since I have memorized the Holy Qur’an.”
That site tells you all you need to know about how the Quran can heal you, but how black magic is evil. In fact, the entire reason the Jews did not follow the Prophet is because of a black magic spell! (More on the Jews here.)
I need to study it more fully so I can properly appreciate the role the Quran can play in curing various mental and physical problems. (This is not to be confused with camel urine, which cures other physical ailments.)

(h/t Challah Hu Akbar)

Materialism is the base of Judaism according to their clinical psychologist who memorizes the Quran. If I were Chabad I’d be pissed at these people.
