Ali Hussain Sibat seems to be a bit of a kook. He was on a silly television show in the Middle East in which he’d make paranormal predictions, and he also was making a religious pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia. The latter was considered just fine; the former has got him in big trouble. The Saudi government convicted him of sorcery and is planning to decapitate him.
Now that is barbarism. Here in America we let fortune-telling frauds get rich, instead.
