Dear Chris, you write :

> 15. Witch hunts??? I never saw any witch hunts while I lived in Saudi Arabia nor any witch hunts in any other Islamic countries. I think you are confusing witches with Jinns. Most Muslims however aren't anymore cncerned with Jinns (which are regarded as sometimes dangers spirits) then most Christians are of fairies and gremlins. However you do have a few Muslims that are extremely superstitious. But I most definitely would not characterize the entire religion as being obsessed with Jinns. They like bathrooms by the way…so be careful when you poop. 

"MAKKAH, 16 April 2007 — The Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice recently arrested a 40-year-old African woman who was dabbling in the dark art of magic(...)" "There were 69 reported cases of people practicing magic and involving themselves in polytheism."

'Arabnews' seems to be an "objective" source, doesn't it ?
