The Wizard of Iran
Hocus Pocus, things are not in focus!
Jinn (Arabic: جن jinn, singular جني jinnī; variant spelling djinn) or genies are supernatural creatures in Arab folklore and Islamic teachings which occupy a parallel world to that of mankind. Together, jinn, humans and angels make up the three sentient creations of Allah. ~ Wikipedia
Modern day dictators can be rather colourful characters. Characters who sometimes become caricatures of themselves, like M. Khadafy, for one. Then there's Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who tells us the planet Mars probably once was home to a thriving civilization, doomed after all its resources were consumed; poisoned by the excesses of Capitalism.
I'm not sure if Chavez keeps a blog (I do follow him on twitter). However, I do know that Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad loves to blog. He's also being scrutinized a la 15th century-style as word spreads there may be magic in his mitts! Can't you just imagine him now, watching "Charmed" and "Merlin" on the telly?
Ahmadinejad Allies Charged with 'Sorcery'...
Top aides arrested for being 'magicians' and invoking genies...
Haha, I like this quote from Jewlicious "Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Dreams of Genie? Well, I don't really know what he dreams of other than a world map without Israel on it..."
