Great Moments In Multi-Culturalism: The Saudi Black Magic Edition


Wow, who’d have ever thought a nation famous for tribalism, religious extremism, and their frighteningly backwards attitude towards women would actually have a government agency that deals with black magic?

JEDDAH, (Saudi Arabia): 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 excerpt goes on, but it was worth stopping here just so you’d pay special attention to the absolute best line in the whole article, which comes up next.

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.

Of course, “We’re certainly no better than them,” the multi-culturalists would say. Why, just look at the Salem Witch Trials! Of course, those happened in the late 1600s; so Saudi Arabia is getting to about where we were culturally 400 years ago. How in the world could Al-Qaeda thrive in such a hotbed of culture and intellect?

PS: If you happen to be a Wiccan, first of all…really? Hahah. How silly. But getting beyond that, you might want to hold off on that vacation to Saudi Arabia to see the….ehr, sand or camels or whatever there is in that godawful country anyone who’s not a Muslim would want to see.
