Saudi Police Arrest Flying, Naked, African ‘Sorceress’

abdullahswordLast month, according to Emirates247 ,A Saudi court sentenced two Asian housemaids to 10 years in jail and ordered their lashed 1,000 times each after they were found guilty of indulging in sorcery at their employers’ houses…Their Saudi employers reported the two maids to the Gulf country’s feared religious police, saying they had discovered that their families had been harmed because of sorcery practiced by the maids against them.”

Emirates247 does not go into details, perhaps because its written for an English-reading audience which has enough difficulties dealing with the bare-bone facts of the report.  However, to give the reader an idea of the “colorful” nature of these many anecdotes of witches and warlocks emanating from Saudi Arabia—the birthplace and preserver of Islam—consider this 2010 Arabic report about a flying, naked African sorceress arrested in Saudi Arabia in 2006.

According to Al Arabiyya:

Men from the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice were surprised to find a naked African sorceress while conducting a raid on one of the dens of “Magic and Sorcery” in Medina.  The men reported that they tried to cover the witch but she refused.  The biggest surprise for them was when she “flew like a bird” out of the room and disappeared from the apartment leaving the twenty men of the committee in awe.  According to the newspaper ‘Ukaz (issued Monday, May 29, 2006), the men of the Committee carried out the raid on Sunday and found more than 20 women in the den as well as the naked African witch.  The newspaper said that men continued to search for the “witch” on other floors of the building.   They were later surprised to find a man and his children crying out for help.  The man reported that  “A naked African woman fell from the ceiling in the kids’ room as they slept.  The kids woke up scared and started screaming.  We all ran away after I was sure she’s a witch.”

The report continues by saying that the men finally found the “witch” and paralyzed her by reciting Koran verses.  They covered her up and arrested her, claiming to find “incense, beads and sorcery material as well as videos to teach magic and a piece of a school girl’s uniform, which alerted them to the fact that the ‘witch’ might have put a school girl under a spell.”

Commenting on the story,  senior Islamic cleric Sheikh Abdul Mohsin al-‘Ubeikan said “Magic is one of the greatest sins and may lead to atheism and polytheism.  It is unfortunate that wicked work is  practiced in the city of the Prophet, peace be upon him.”  He also declared that “some witches may ride a broom and fly in the air with the help of jinn.  This woman flew to another floor to escape the committee with the help of jinn.  I would like to thank the committee men for their blessed efforts to destroy each spoiler and ask Allah for his help as they support everyone.”

Bizarre?  The fact is, there is no end to such stories emanating from the prophet’s peninsula.  In April 2012, according to the Arabic website Al Shorfa, an al-Qaeda affiliated group in Yemen, called Ansar al-Sharia (or the “Supporters of Sharia Law”), beheaded a woman for “practicing magic and sorcery.” Members of the group broke into the home of Sharifa Amr—a local healer who used natural herbs to treat sick people—“beheaded her, and then hung her severed head in front of the home of another popular healer in the region, as a warning that he might share her fate.”

In 2011, “Saudi Arabia’s religious police arrested an Indonesian housemaid for casting a magic spell on a local family and ‘turning its life upside down.’” The maid “confessed” to using sorcery, and “commission experts took the magic items to their office and managed to dismantle and stop the spell.” In 2008, another women in the Arab kingdom was set to be beheaded for witchcraft.

This, then, is the mentality that governs Saudi Arabia—based not on “tribal culture” but Islam’s authentic teachings.

Far from being absurd aberrations to be dismissed, such accounts are stark reminders of the incompatibility between the Western and Muslim worldviews—remember Islam’s bewitched animals?—or, more to the point, the difficulty Western peoples have transcending their own paradigms and understanding the Muslim worldview in its own right, above and beyond the issue of sorcery.

    Islam is into Taqyiya. And the West gobbles it up.

    Allah was one of the many pagan Arab gods, and Islam is a pagan murder/rape/suicide pagan cult

      Baal’s symbol was the crescent moon. Hmmmm.

        The pagan gods demanded escalating human sacrifice. hmmmm

  • chuckie2u

    Washington, Adams and Jefferson must be flipping in their graves to see Washingtons Elites allowing Islam to be the fastest growing religion in America. Since Americas Politicians have thrown Christianity under the bus Islam will fill the Spiritual void as it has in Europe.

    • GregOden’sD**k

      Jefferson actually owned a Quran and read it quite often. What he got out of doing that, I have no idea.

    … two Asian housemaids… found guilty of indulging in sorcery at their employers’ houses Seriously?

    I have a hard time with the “employers” aspect of this. Don’t you really mean their owners’ houses? How is it that Saudis have Asian, Indonesian, Africans in their employ? What do the positions pay? Aren’t these employees really slaves? And how convenient a way for the Saudi Royals (there are thousands of them) to get rid of slaves who displease them, but even we won’t ask the questions that might embarrass the inbred, sheet-wearing, goat herders. I’m sure no one will bother following up on these slave women who have been sentenced to 10 years in a Saudi prison. They are after all, expendable.

    While the Wahabis exploit our freedoms, funding colonies all over North America, we turn our backs, pretending not to notice serious human rights violations taking place daily within their “closed” society which we are bullied into “respecting” by our own cowed government.

      When foreign workers arrive in SA, most(not all,but most) have their papers taken by their “employers” especially if they’re not muslim. Then they are all but prisoners and subject to beatings rape and anything else the “employer” wants to do. My wife worked there for 6 years and while it didn’t happen to her(she worked for one of the 7000 princes,they don’t count the princesses) she had many friends that it did happen to. BTW the only time off she had was two weeks every other year to go visit home.The rest of the time was on call. Nice people.

    Only an Arab Mooslim could be stupid enough to believe this foolishness but what really got me ROTFLMAO was the “Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and The Prevention of Vice”. How can any Westerner take these fools seriously? Piss be upon them.

    The pregnent question here is where was Muchelle can she account

    Obama and Holder singing “That old black magic has me in a spell”….

    We can defeat Islam with………”Bewitched” reruns.

  • Porkys2istan

    Sounds exactly like New England in the 1600’s. When religion and government are one, idiocy and superstition become the norm.

    You right ring Jesus freaks wonder why we liberals are so inimical to organized religion? This is why. When you make your life decisions based on your imaginary sky friend’s babbles, (abortion, birth control, sex education) then you are no better than the idiot muztards.

    Our society is better because we put religion in its place with the other fairy tales. Half of you are working so hard to defeat the muslims while also working to establish an equally unfree and repressive Christo-fascist regime.

    Muslims are a thousands times worse than Christians, but I don’t live with 50 million muslims (yet).

  • Jakareh

    But this explains how the Israelis got sharks to bite Russians in Sharm el-Sheikh, thereby costing poor Egypt much tourism money. The wily Jews didn’t use technology on the sharks; they bewitched them. After all, who’s ever heard of a trained shark?

    • bodica

      Sharks were hungry. Desalination of Gulf waters for the Dubai and (Sahara) Desert Follies has led to the loss of 40% of sea life via hypernatremia.

  • Arf

    How funny that this story appears on the same date as the one on that ridiculous Islam and science exhibit. True Islam is nothing more than a combination of blood lust and make believe. God help us.

    • bodica

      The Met Museum had this well touted exhibit on Egyptian Medicine. Well, nothing too exotic, thank God – just intelligent use of olive oil and honey!

  • Biff Henderson

    Sounds like the work of that infidel abomination the Flying Nun.

  • barry soetoro

    Barry Soetoro pilots a magic carpet. What’s the difference.

  • Smote

    I’d laugh at this story if it weren’t for the murder of innocent women. May they rest in peace.

    It’s time all Saudi Arabia quit the drugs and went into deep analysis. Clearly, they are all delusional.

    I wish a naked African sorceress would come and ‘do things’ with me. We’d both end up wearing smiles, believe me.

  • defcon 4

    Have the Soddy Barbarians been watching too many re-runs of Margot Thomas as the flying nun?

  • cultureisa birthright

    1000 lashes? Noone survives this.

    • defcon 4

      That’s the truth. I imagine they don’t give the stripes all at once. It’s sobering to note that even the British and US Navies outlawed flogging — as well as in the Merchant Marine.

  • kafirman

    Yes, this is Islam. Can we at FPM agree to call it “Islam” and not “IslamISM”?

  • Thomas Sharp

    A flying naked African witch?
    Dang muzzie rats got into the heroin again, it would seem.

    Oh yeah society is just perfect now. *rolls eyes*

    • Porkys2istan

      Pick One:

      Puritanical pre-constitution New England.
      Any muslim country on earth.
      America today.

      Not perfect, but better than when church and state were one, and better than islam anywhere. :P

  • defcon 4

    Gee, I’ve never read anything about any Christians anywhere advocating for a theocratic state. But please, don’t let a little thing like facts get in the way of your fervid delusions.

    • Porkys2istan

      Read a history book. It was called the Catholic Church and it dominated Europe for over a thousand years, until the Reformation and the Church of England broke the beast’s back. Even after that, Catholic/Protestant violence plagued Europe up until the 1800’s when the beast was thoroughly defanged. Even then Catholic/Protestant violence continued in Ireland for 200 more years. The pope could have ended that conflict with ONE pronouncement, but he let it continue for another 200 years. If North Ireland felt that they would have been treated fairly by the murderous Papists they would not have fought so fervently to stay separate. So don’t tell me that Christians are immune to murderous theocracies. And all of that from a religion that is SUPPOSED to be based on peace, love, tolerance, forgiveness, charity, and honesty. How much worse it could have been if Europe had accepted Mohammad instead of Jesus.

      Still, Catholic Church J’accuse!

      The Catholic Church killed millions of people who’s only crime was leaving the church because of it’s rampant corruption. By muslim standards, about 10 million murdered over a 1000 years is amateurish. During that same time islam killed over 270 million. Islam reached 10 million killed in the last 20 years of the last century and is about to EXCEED that in THIS century (mostly in Africa).

      But hey, don’t let history or the ‘facts’ get in the way of your snarky commenting. :P
