    Israel is known for its advanced intelligence capabilities but, according to an Iranian cleric, that is because it uses sorcery. The comments by Valiollah Naghipourfar, a cleric and professor at Tehran University, were made in a recent interview he gave to Iran’s state broadcaster, Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) and were republished by the IranWire website. …

    Saudi police arrested a Yemeni magician who targeted a well-known billionaire with an expensive ring carrying the rich man’s image and a talisman, a newspaper reported on Wednesday. Police at a checkpoint in the central town of Wadi Al Dawasir stopped a car coming from the southern province of Jazan near the border with Yemen after suspecting its driver. “They found a ring on him, which he said he had bought from Yemen for SR150,000. The ring has a picture of a well-known Saudi billionaire,” the Arabic language daily Al Watan said. “The man also had a large piece of...

    Those who dislike or are relatively unfamiliar with the occult will likely be surprised to learn that a witchcraft school—like an adult version of Hogwarts—is in full operation in the center of New York City. The Wiccan Family Temple Academy of Pagan Studies, while certainly different from the fictional school that Harry Potter and his friends attended, does provide some intriguing elements that will serve as a surprise to those with little familiarity with Pagan beliefs and witchcraft. The academy, according to information on its web site, offers affordable training, which includes coverage in the “Path of Wicca,” Starlight Vision...

    A number of Saudi nationals suffering from physical and mental problems have fallen victim to an unknown man whom lives in Egypt and claims he can cure them by sending over a ‘Muslim jinn’ [genie] to address their health issues. The Egyptian’s agent in Saudi Arabia arranges a phone call, understandably, to identify the exact nature of their medical emergency, and too, establish which jinn to dispatch in order to properly address the problem. “People who spoke to the man in that country were asked to transfer a specific sum of money to his account so he can send them...

    Kristy, 15, was in such pain after days of being attacked with sticks, a metal bar, hammer and chisel that he begged to die, jurors heard. His brother-in-law Eric Bikubi was joined by his partner, Kristy's sister Magalie, in the horror, said Brian Altman QC, prosecuting. And his other siblings were forced to join in before they were all placed in the bath to be hosed down in cold water with a shower head by Bikubi on Christmas Day, 2010. ... The jury was told that in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where the defendants are originally from, witchcraft...

    There is much turbulence in the Iranian government today. Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei is not happy that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad fired Intelligence Minister Heydar Moslehi last month. He has now given Ahmadinejad an ultimatum to either re-instate Moslehi or resign. A sullen Ahmadinejad caught a bad case of the “blue flu,” and stopped showing up for work. According to the BBC, one of his aides wrote a blog post that said the Iranian president “is in pain, as if a thorn is stuck in his throat… he cannot take it out or swallow in.” Try that one the next time...

    Are witches real? Of course they are. Are they skinny old women with green skin, pointy chins and warts on their noses, who cackle over cauldrons? Of course not. Do they attend an academy called “Hogwarts,” play a form of hockey on their broomsticks and battle mythical beasts? Is “Samantha,” a pretty middle-class suburban wife with magical powers and a gaggle of kooky and spooky family members, a witch? Of course not. All of that is an attempt to make us believe that there are not really such things as witches.

    JEDDAH Muslim clerics are warning Saudis against a new Satanic phone-gang who prey on people by telling tall tales over the telephone and trying to frighten them into parting with thousands of riyals. The criminal gang, whose leader goes by the name Abdullah Al-Senegali, randomly phones unsuspecting members of the public, armed with knowledge about their lives which some victims believe to come from satanic sources. The scam is similar to the common fraudulent e-mail solicitations in which people pose as an official from a foreign country seeking a business transaction, but in reality want banking information from potential victims....

A neighbour, she says, gave her a bowl of soup...
