Phony Muslim Faith Healer deals with Freak-Out on Muslim TV


This is a show broadcast on Egyptian television in 2005. The guests are a man who professes to be able to tell the difference between fakery and true jinn posssession (demon or spirit possession) and a sheikh who seems to be claiming people can be healed with just the Koran and honey.

A third guest freaks out and starts rolling around on the floor, twitching, whooping & hollering, and throwing papers everywhre. The guests debate what's wrong with him in an oddly calm way. Quackery, hucksterism, and phony healers are certainly not the exclusive domain of christian fundamentalists.
