Just Sayin’: Black Magic Carries Jail Time

Promise.It’s been a long fight with genies and witches for those worshippers of Allah.Sure, there will be quite a bit of black magic in Philadelphia this week courtesy of the DNC and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s hairstylist, but in places like Saudi Arabia bathroom email servers the dark arts are considered to be criminal acts.

Yes, flying a rainbow flag and female drivers are also treated as criminal acts in Saudi Arabia, but apparently entrapment isn’t frowned upon by the Dubai Police, as DP set up an undercover operation to arrest an aspiring entrepreneur/witch doctor.

Major Omer Bin Hamad, the Deputy Director of the General Department of Criminal Investigation, claimed that the police had heard of a man that would attempt to heal those ailing in hotels and other public places with black magic, which led to the idea to set up a sting operation to catch him in the act.

An undercover officer went up to the mark and asked for help to which the man said that with DH 7,000 (roughly $1,900) to buy materials he would readily do so. The undercover officer then gave him the money and rented a room in a hotel in order for the doctor to actually work his magic.Who needs the Ghostbusters when you have the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice?

While in the room attempting to contact a healing genie, the man was arrested and charged with fraud, using black magic and using black magic in public places.

Naturally, undercover ops aren’t the only way that Saudi Authorities are cracking down on the scourge of witches and wizards.

The Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice (otherwise known as the Religion POPO) has even started offering a 5-day course to their members on combating magic, which includes both theoretical and practical measures on identifying and stopping sorcerers.

By the way, if you consult your almanac you’ll notice that the year is still 2016.

Just sayin’.
