    Haifa, Israel – After Israel complained for years that it was surrounded by oil-rich states but didn’t have a drop within its own borders, it appears there’s a big-time turnaround with the announcement Wednesday that massive oil reserves have been located in the Golan Heights,close to the country’s border with Syria. Afek Oil and Gas, an Israeli subsidiary of the U.S. company Genie Energy, confirmed the find in an interview with Israel’s Channel 2 TVbut conceded that until the oil is actually extracted, they won’t be sure of the actual amounts and quality of the oil that has been discovered....

    Israel has granted a U.S. company the first license to explore for oil and gas in the occupied Golan Heights, John Reed of the Financial Times reports. A local subsidiary of the New York-listed company Genie Energy — which is advised by former vice president Dick Cheney and whose shareholders include Jacob Rothschild and Rupert Murdoch — will now have exclusive rights to a 153-square mile radius in the southern part of the Golan Heights. That geographic location will likely prove controversial. Israel seized the Golan Heights in the Six-Day War in 1967 and annexed the territory in 1981. Its...

    Chief representative of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) in Washington D.C. is warning United States lawmakers against retaliating for last month's statehood vote at the United Nations, maintaining that doing so would only hurt U.S. credibility in the region. “History has shown time and again that the language of threats, financial pressure, and punitive measures simply does not work,” Maen Rashid Areikat wrote in a letter sent to U.S. lawmakers. “Engagement and dialogue is the only way to express the views of Congress. Biased and one-sided resolutions cannot contribute to an atmosphere that is conducive for a political resolution to...

    Says court should summon genie in corrupt judge case A Saudi defence lawyer has asked court to summon a jinn (genie) claimed to have possessed a judge who has been arrested on corruption charges, the Saudi Arabic language daily Okaz reported on Saturday. The lawyer, Salim bin Atteyya, told court that the jinn must be present in court to testify in the case of the corrupt judge in Madina, Islam’s second holiest shrine after Makkah, the newspaper said. “The case of the corrupt judge in Madina has taken a new turn and witnessed new developments as the lawyer of an...

    A Saudi teen age girl whose father says she has been kidnapped by a genie has remained missing more than a week after she disappeared from her house in central Saudi Arabia, a local newspaper reported on Monday. Police and residents have expanded their hunt for the 16-year-old girl while several pilots using gliders have just joined the search in the central town of Alkharj and nearby mountains and valleys, Shams daily said. “The Saudi Sky Glider Team has joined the search operation to find the girl, who has been missing since last week,” the paper said. “The pilots have...

    MAKKAH: A clinic in the Eastern Province that provides treatment to people possessed by jinns has volunteered to help Turki, a 29-year-old Saudi from Makkah who according to his father is possessed by a female jinn and has, as a result, been chained to a bed for more than six years. “I’ve spoken to the center and they’ve offered to help my son. They will provide accommodation, food and air tickets for him, his wife, me and his mother who is my ex-wife,” said Turki’s father. He, however, added that traveling to the Eastern Province is going to be difficult....

    'When he has fits he has convulsions and his entire body twists and his eyes become completely white,' said the father of the 29-year-old man Evil spirits: Turki, 29, lies chained on the bed in the basement apartment where he has been for six years after being 'possessed by a genie' When Turki first began behaving bizarrely, his father took him to local Muslim clerics to recite the Koran over him. 'But most of them became scared when they heard the female voice telling them that she was a royal jinn (genie) and that no-one can exorcise her unless Turki...

In Islamic theology, genies are spirits that can harass or possess humans.

    I remember a particularly entertaining X Files episode titled "Je Souhaite [I Wish]," in which a genie grants people three wishes, but they all meet with a terrible end as their wishes go horribly awry - because the genie gives them what they ask for, but never - it turns out - what they actually wanted. During the episode, Agent Fox Mulder unleashes the genie, and he and the genie (Jenn) have the following discussion: Jenn: "The only thing you people are cursed with is stupidity. All of you. Everybody. Mankind. Everyone I have ever come into contact with without...

    The statement above means: once people learn how to make money in residential real estate, there is no going back. Many people believe that real estate as an investment is dead, buried and never to be seen again, but I sincerely believe they are wrong. As I write this, there is a new class of millionaires-in-training who are preparing to get wealthy in real estate. They are buying all the foreclosures, in good areas, they can find. About 3% of the population is busy in this enterprise and about 30%, 10 times more, are people who will tell anyone who...

    Our correspondent travels to Somalia and Afghanistan in search of jinn ___ THERE is a cleft in a stone hill outside Qardho, in northern Somalia, which even the hardest gunmen and frankincense merchants avoid. In the cool dark, out of the bleached sunshine, there is a pit, a kind of Alice in Wonderland rabbit hole, which is said to swirl down into the world of jinn. Locals say jinn—genies, that is—fade in and out above the pit. Sometimes they shift into forms of ostriches and run out over the desert scrub. The Bible holds that God created angels and then...

    Escaped golf-course grass frees gene genie in the US 09 August 2006 Andy Coghlan A nondescript grass discovered in the Oregon countryside is hardly an alien invasion. Yet the plant - a genetically modified form of a grass commonly grown on golf courses - is worrying the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) enough that it is running its first full environmental impact assessment of a GM plant. It is the first time a GM plant has escaped into the wild in the US, and it has managed it before securing USDA approval. The plant, creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera, carries a...

    LOS ALAMOS, N.M. -- A scientist clicks a mouse and orders his computer to locate roads on a featureless satellite image of Denver. The screen immediately fills with multicolored squiggles until an entire highway network is depicted within minutes and the computer flashes a score of 991.146 -- just shy of a perfect 1,000. What makes the exercise remarkable is that, by itself, the computer was able to determine which of its software programs were best suited to finding what it wanted within the image -- a process that Los Alamos National Laboratory officials compare to science fiction.Here at the...

    Islam Q & A ^ | 25 Aug, 2002 | Answer Supervised by Shaikh: M. S. Al-Munajjid
    Question: Are we alone when in the bathroom? Can there be Jinn in with us? If so, what steps do we need to take to protect our modesty?. Answer: Praise be to Allaah. It is known that the jinn can see people, but people cannot see the jinn. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “Verily, he [Shaytaan] and Qabeeluhu (his soldiers from the jinn or his tribe) see you from where you cannot see them” [al-A’raaf 7:27] Because the shayaateen (devils) are evil, they like to frequent dirty places. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “Bad statements are for bad...
