Saudi Arabia Sentences Egyptian For Sorcery

200px-Coat_of_arms_of_Saudi_Arabia.svgSaudi Arabia continues to remind the world of its continued belief in primitive superstitions and its adherence to a medieval Sharia legal system. A Saudi court has reportedly sentenced an Egyptian man to six years on charges of attempting to disturb public order, violating the kingdom’s labor laws and communicating with a sorcerer to bewitch his employer. That’s right, sorcery to bewitch his employer. On top of those charges, the Saudis reportedly charged the Egyptian of acquiring a secret military document listing the movements and names of Saudi troops and of emailing this document to the Iranian Embassy in Lebanon.

So he is an Iranian spy . . . and a sorcerer. It is good to see our major ally in the Middle East setting such a high legal standard again.

  1. Harry Truman is the one wo dropped two atom bombs on Japan. That was a while back and most of you are too young to know about it. That was the war to end all wars. No, wait a minute, that was WWI under Woodrow Wilson. Now if we could just find out where Islamic State is located Trump could drop some nuks on them and be done.

  2. East of Corfu the Ten Commandments Don’t Apply. Saudi Arabia is Beyond The Pale. Ask Sarah Palin and Donald Trump. Vote for Trump and keep all these terrorists out! Build up that Wall! Put the finger on the trigger Donald and give em Hell. And you’re name ain’t Harry.

  3. So, I’m guessing that the Harry Potter series did not take off in Saudi Arabia.

  4. Why do the 1% (and their cheerleaders) continue to support:

    * Israel
    * Saudi Arabia

    Oh, that’s right: the 1% love dictatorships and countries that violate human rights.

      Israel is perfectly unremarkable and a congenial place to live. It bothers three sorts of people: (1) one-uppers who denigrate the occident to show the world how Special they are; (2) people addicted to the talking cure and (3) vicious anti-semites. (And of course, people who fit into multiple categories here).

    2. Billyboy, try taking the Israel Test. But I have a real solid feeling, you’re going to flunk.

        1. Well he should have! The look of fear on his face was palpable! Tremendous performance! IIRC, his friend, Donald Ducka$$, was involved with the music. 🙂

          (Trust me, that one was over the moon for most people!)

          1. Squeeky – when I first saw that as a kid, both that and Night on Bald Mountain scared the crap out of me. 😉

  5. There isn’t anything mentioned about him using a private server stored in the basement of his house, so I’m sure it would be more than enough punishment to just call him out for being “extremely careless” with the secret information and be done with it.

  6. If he was really a sorcerer, what did he need email for? He could have just poofed it to where ever it needed to go.

    As opposed to being addled by contemporary superstitions, which include:

    1. The notion that sucking an unborn child’s brains out or soaking that child in caustic brine is something other than monstrous.

    2. The notion that you have a legal right to do that and a legal right to insist that the county clerk issue you a marriage license, your lack of a woman to get married to notwithstanding.

    3. The notion that ‘constitutional law’ is an academic discipline.

  8. Come on Turley, you just can’t go around putting all kinds of spells and hexes on employers and bewitching them. A little common sense please.

  9. Everyday JT provides us examples of the various “legal” systems around the world. At the ground level, in many cases, they appear to be atrocious examples of “justice” when compared to our own system. When you take the 10,000 foot view the results are not much different than our own. People are falsely charged, witnesses lie, judges are unjust, people are imprisoned and executed. The results are the same and they stem from a failure of enlightenment and the rule of law to secure the natural rights of the people. The difference between the United States “legal” system and many of these countries around the world is nothing more than sophistication. We are simply craftier in infringing the rights of the people. We need to get off our high horse and recognize that.

    1. Yep. When Anthony Kennedy and Patrick FitzGerald are walkin’ the streets, you need to be qualified and circumspect in your comparative judgments.

  10. I don’t know what the source or sorce of this article is. But it seems like the second crime described could get him executed. He is a spy and using some religious dogma to hide under. Of course, I don’t know what “scorcery” is anyway.

  11. Well, this man certainly needs a good lawyer! Here is the basis of a scientific approach to magic, and sorcery.


    In a 2004 study involving bio-energy healers, who were asked to focus their mental energy, the median increase in the energy output of the volunteers in the experimental group was found to be 8.3 volts, and lasted a median of 3.6 seconds. This was a test of the phenomenon known as biophotonic emission. Still considered a pseudo-science by most of the scientific community, this process has been studied by researchers such as Fritz Albert Popp of the International Institute of Biophysics in Neuss, Germany since the late 1970�s. Biophotons themselves were first documented in 1923 by Russian medical scientist Alexander Gurvich, who named them “mitogenetic rays”.

    Assuming that biophotonic emission is an actual phenomenon, and that the intensity of emission can be controlled with adequate training, this would provide the physical mechanism by which a human could physically alter the behavior of subatomic particles. If this mechanism in turn can be combined with the visualization of an intended outcome, then the probability of actually causing that desired result to manifest could physically exist.


    I have proposed that the phenomenon of magick derives its source not from a supernatural or higher being, but through the process of human bio-energy effecting subatomic particles. I realize that this is a stretch. Practitioners of magickal systems which presume that results are the purview of extra-dimensional entities would no doubt find this theory to be rubbish, as would most traditional physicists. I myself am not certain that this effect is factual or probable. I do believe however, that it is possible, and that is the key. Even if magickal results are obtained through an as of yet completely unknown mechanism, and this theory serves only as the basis of visualization, it is still an effective mnemonic device. Quantum sorcery provides a possible explanation to the psychic censor, and loosens the parameters of what the censor will permit to be manifest in the personal reality of the magickian.

    And for those who doubt that there is such a thing as mind over matter, I submit the following thought problem.

    Take your finger, and touch the end of your nose. Then use your finger to wiggle your nose, like Samantha Stevens, the witch on old-timey TV.

    You have just exercised your mind over matter. Your conscious thought, a non-material thing, resulted in a physical action. Mind over matter!
