My Way News – Voodoo Practitioner Tries to Jinx Bush

BOGOR, Indonesia (AP) – A renowned black magic practitioner performed a voodoo ritual Thursday to jinx President George W. Bush and his entourage while he was on a brief visit to Indonesia.

What strikes me as odd is that it’s refered to as “voodoo.” I thought maybe this was just a clumsy way to translate the Indonesian idea of “ilmu hitam” (literally “black knowledge”) but a friend of mine more knowledgeable in Indonesia than I says that it’s quite possible he really is practicing voodoo. Neat.
