    Hey Fellas get a load of this!

    Some of the Iranian Presidents allies have been accused of using sorcery and invoking the Djinn.

    Check it out:

    It sure would be nice if one of the better hosts on the air/net managed to get Phil Imbrogno on to comment about this.

    I'm "plodding" through the new book Phil and Rosemary Ellen Guilley have out on the Djinn. I gottal tell ya that so far it's been nothing but obscure quotes from the Koran and a few legends from the Arab countryside. But, I have not gotten to Imbrogno's part yet so I still hope that it picks up. Anyway, it would be great to have them back on since this story is currently in the news.



    I'm a Pisces and we don't believe in any of that stuff. :)

    However, if Barbara Eden is involved then I am so there. One of my earliest crushes. I know I show my age but Wow was I a huge fan. Still am. :)

    I don't know what the fess is about, if I had to stay in Iran, I'd most likely be hittin' the djinn too.

    Everything I ever learned regarding Djinn I got from watching Wishmaster 1-4.

    Now I'm gonna bone up on my witchcraft by watching the Sooty show!

    (Anybody outside the UK probably won't get that)

    I recommend getting the book by Amira El-Zein, it has a lot more lore about the Jinn, also she's an academician, a professor, so the book has more rigor than Guilley's.
    If you have access to a public university library then login to Jstor and do some academic journal searches. There is a wealth of information on folklore and beliefs about the Djinn world-wide.

    Guilley's books are researched, and interesting, but there's a lot more out there by far if you know where to look. Unfortunately most lore on the Djinn is basically locked away in Arabic or Persian language only works, and have yet to be translated.

    A certain Dr. Umar Sulaiman al-Ashqar has an interesting book called The World of the Jinn and Devils. Translated by Jamaal al-Din M. Zarabozo. It isn't great but combined with Rosemary Ellen Guilley's book and Amira El-Zein's (which I can't recommend enough) that's about as good as you are going to get in English language sources, without having to delve into anthropological studies and academic journal articles. (There's a lot of anthropological work on Djinn exorcisms and beliefs everywhere from Black Africa all the way to Malaysia and Java. Thousands of pages worth of reading)

    Cheerio !
