Yeah I have a bad feeling too - Witch Hunt anyone?

If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

Exactly, and I also suspect that 90% of these 'evil doers' will be women.

Sounds a little of both. Oh and the evil sorcerers are supposed to be the spirits, not people. Although very amaturish. Burning a place down will not do much except increase the activity.

the teenagers are just using the jinn to have an excuse to cause mischief and do stuff that they are never allowed to do. and the article did say that they were grinning.

I say it would depend on the factors involved, like if there was actually activity in the first place. Oh and welcome to UM

i don't see that being a factor here. Not to people who believe in it and/or using it as a excuse.
