Turkish TV Says Genies Help Russian Spies

Turkish TV Says Genies Help Russian Spies

A state-run Turkish television says Russian secret service uses genies for gathering intelligence.

       One of the recent episodes of a Turkish weekly political show “The Great Chase” (Büyük Takip) was dedicated to the use of supernatural powers by world secret services in their work. 

      “Russian submarines gather intelligence through genies,” theologian and writer Mehmet Seker said. He did not elaborate but said the American CIA and Israeli Mossad also invoke “genies” for unspecified purposes but are not quite as good as the "Russian KGB" at using them. It is unclear whether Seker was referring to the Soviet agency, as KGB was shut down in 1991.

      Another political analyst taking part in the show, Omer Ozkaya, added that NASA also sought once an expert on genies in Turkey, hoping the supernatural creatures could be put to use repairing satellites in orbit.

      None of the named secret agencies commented on the show.

       Genies, or jinns, are one of the three sentient races created by Allah along with humans and angels, according to the Quran. Belief in them is very strong in the Islamic world, there are a lot of books with instructions how to place genies under the command. Last year there even was a big scandal in Iran, when Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's companions were detained on accusations of conspiring with genies.

      However, in Russia genies are not very popular.  Russian itelligence services probably prefer collaborating with Baba-Yaga or other Russian mystical creatures, as there is no such thing as language barrier.
