-Gordon Creighton, Official 1992 Flying Saucer Review Policy Statement
"A large part of the available UFO literature is closely linked with mysticism and the metaphysical. It deals with subjects like mental telepathy, automatic writing and invisible entities as well as phenomena like poltergeist [ghost] manifestation and 'possession.' Many of the UFO reports now being published in the popular press recount alleged incidents that are strikingly similar to demonic possession and psychic phenomena."

"The 'medical examination' to which abductees are said to be subjected, often accompanied by sadistic sexual manipulation, is reminiscient of the medieval tales of encounters with demons. It makes no sense in a sophisticated or technical framework: any intelligent being equipped with the scientific marvels that UFOs possess would be in a position to achieve any of these alleged scientific objectives in a shorter time and with fewer risks."
- Dr. Jacques Vallee, Confrontations, p. 13
"The symbolic display seen by the abductees is identical to the type of initiation ritual or astral voyage that is imbedded in the [occult] traditions of every culture...the structure of abduction stories is identical to that of occult initiation rituals...the UFO beings of today belong to the same class of manifestation as the [occult] entities that were described in centuries past."

"[The occultist] is brought into intelligent communication with the spirits of the air, and can receive any knowledge which they possess, or any false impression they choose to impart...the demons seem permitted to do various wonders at their request."

"These entities are clever enough to make Strieber think they care about him. Yet his torment by them never ceases. Whatever his relationship to the entities, and he increasingly concludes that their involvement with him is something 'good,' he also remains terrified of them and uncertain as to what they are."

To understand the true nature of ufos, it's important to understand the history and their connection to the Djinn. They share various similarities. This article covers the history and origins of the Jinn.
Jinn: Tales of Wish Masters Throughout Time (Brief History of the Jinn)
By Valda Roric ; Ancient Origins
In translation, the term jinn can be interpreted as hidden from sight or the hidden ones . In Arabic, jinn defines a collective number and it derives from the root jnn or gnn which means to hide or to be hidden - thus implying the fact that jinn are not necessarily spirits, but they are hidden in their status in time, in space, and in darkness.
Etymology of the Word Jinn
From the same root, the word Gannah is also derived which refers to another place hidden in space and time - the Garden of Paradise. In English, “genie” is a synonym for “jinn” and it is derived from the Latin “genius” which used to refer to a sort of protective spirit which each human was thought to have ever since the moment of birth.
The only resemblance between the two is the pronunciation, as jinn and genius are totally distinct entities. From the Latin “genus” the modern term “genetics” is derived with a certain resemblance to “jinn” as entities believed to be capable of determining familial features of resemblance. In Arabic, the singular for genie or jinn is “ginni”, while the plural is “ginn”.
Jinns and Precious Stones
Like many other beings, jinn can be either male and female. Also, jinn can exist independently or they can attach themselves to inanimate objects, especially old objects in which they can reside and together with which they can travel. For example, it was believed that jinn could become attached to precious or semi-precious stones such as opals.
In the Middle East, archaeologists have found evidence from the pre-Islamic era which suggested that during that time, there was no clear distinction between spirits inferior to angels and jinn. In north-west Arabia, archaeological evidence has also clearly suggested the worship of jinn. In a region near Palmyra, an unearthed inscription called jinn “the good and rewarding gods”, but despite all archaeological evidence regarding jinn worship, the Quran rejects this practice arguing that Allah is the only one who is to be revered and worshiped:
“But they have attributed to Allah partners - the jinn, while He has created them - and have fabricated for Him sons and daughters without knowledge. Exalted is He and high above what they describe ” - Quran, 6:100.
Jinn in Arabian Nights and The Quran
Jinn are most commonly known from the tales contained in “Arabian Nights”, a writing which illustrates several kinds of jinn and spirits. According to the text, numerous spirits and entities exist alongside humans and they interact between one another just as they interact with humans.
Out of all these entities, the type of jinn known as Ifrit is described as physically larger than the rest as well as the most powerful. Another kind of jinn, the Marid, is said to live in seas and oceans as a spirit of water.
As the most well-known supernatural beings of the Islamic tradition, jinn are often mentioned in the Quran. They reside in the void between worlds, a parallel dimension different from the world of humans or from any world known.
Even though angels, humans, and jinn are the three types of sentient beings created by Allah, the latter are the most mysterious. The information regarding them is scarce, but it is said that they have come into being from the smokeless flame and that they can be good, evil, or neutral.
Still, jinn can be dangerous and hostile towards humans using every chance they get to twist the words and desires of humans against them. The “Suurat al-Jinn” is a surah contained in the 72nd chapter of the Quran which is dedicated entirely to jinn. Jinn are also mentioned in the Quran in the final verse of the “Suurat al-Naas”, but the classic image of jinn as wishmasters was first depicted in “Arabian Nights”.
Contrary to angels, but similar to humans, jinn enjoy free will, therefore they can make their own choices and they can also allegedly be judged during Judgment Day and sent to either Heaven or Hell. Jinn usually live in highly remote areas with clouds, waters, trees, and mountains.
They traditionally are said to live in their own communities and their existence can remain secret as they are able to travel over great distances extremely quickly. Also, jinn can make themselves invisible to the eyes of humans. Because of all this, stories say that humans can only get small, vague, and unclear glimpses of the existence of jinn without fully perceiving their reality.
From Jinn to Devil
It is said that, after Allah created man, he asked angels and jinn to bow before Adam. At that time, one jinn exerted his free will and chose to disobey the Creator. He was the Iblis. For his disobedience, he was banished from Paradise and he became the Devil, under the name of Sheitan. This change caused Allah sent prophets to both human and jinn alike in order to provide good counsel and show the righteous path.
In this way, Mohammed was but one of these prophets and messengers. One of the differences between Christianity and Islam is that the Bible constitutes the word of God sent through the apostles, while the Quran is considered to be the word of Allah itself. As depicted in the Quran, the Iblis gained Allah’s favor through his devotion and he was granted command over the order of angels.
However, even though he had obtained a rank similar to that of angels and, just as the angels, he had to listen and obey to Allah’s orders, the Iblis refused to bow before Adam while stating “ I am better than he: Thou didst create me from fire, and him from clay ” – Surah 7, Al-A’raf, Ayat 11-12.
Until Qiyaamah, Judgment Day, Allah, in his mercy, postponed the destruction of the Iblis turned Sheitan. As for devils, the Islamic tradition states: “ We made the evil ones friends only to those without faith ” – Quran 7-27. In Christianity, Lucifer, an angel, became Satan - the Devil. In Islam, Iblis, a jinn, became Sheitan - the Devil.
The Power of Sheitan
When it comes to the power Sheitan has over men, there are two main aspects which he can exploit. The first is hubris which constitutes extreme pride and arrogance. The second is influence, which means that Sheitan can whisper and instigate people to do evil, but it is up to each human to decide whether he wishes to follow the suggested evil path or not. In this way, Sheitan lacks any kind of direct means of control over the lives of humans.
His power rests merely at the level of suggestion, balanced by the possibility of choice that is provided by free will. Partly, this explains why the name “Iblis”, coming from the root “balasa” means “he who causes despair”. In addition, the Quran argues that devils and evil jinn were created to help sorcerers who are, from a spiritual point of view, very far from Allah. Supposedly sorcerers can invoke these entities, force them into obedience through special rituals, and then send them out to accomplish tasks set by the sorcerer himself - or by those paying for his services.
The article below discusses the similarities between the UFO phenomenon and Djinn. UFO encounters and UFO entities seem to mimic Djinn characteristics.
The True Nature Of The 'UFO Entities'
By Gordon Creighton
Flying Saucer Review Vol. 29, No. 5
One of the more curious features of the followers of the various religions is that, being so dogmatically certain that in their own particular little faith they already possess the whole truth about all things in Heaven and Earth, it almost never occurs to any of them to look elsewhere and find out what the followers of other religions may know or may have discovered. This is certainly a pity, for study of all the great world religions - and notably Islam one of the world's great religions - yields valuable clues as to the true nature of the "UFO Phenomenon" Islam knows, in fact, of the existence of three entirely separate and distinct species of intelligent beings in the Universe, and indeed can furnish surprisingly precise details regarding their natures and roles and activities. Angels, Men, and JINNS.
The first category is that of the Angels or Messengers. The second are Men, with planetary physical bodies assembled from the mineral and chemical elements of our Periodic Table. The third category, is the category of those beings created before man was who are referred to collectively in Arabic as Al-Jinn that means. "to hide or to conceal" indeed a very fitting derivation for the name of these creatures. Whereas the bodies of Angels are of light, the bodies of Al-Jinn consist of "essential fire", or "essential flame", or "smokeless fire", or "smokeless flame." It is specifically stated in the Qur'an (Surah XV, 26 and 27) that they were created before mankind and some scholars speculate these might be the "Pre-Adamic men" whose existence is hinted at here and there in the "Holy Bible." Western occultists have tried to describe them as ether, or as etheric or astral planes. I have also seen it suggested that some sort of plasma is indicated.) The Source of the Jinns is not very distant from us, yet at the same time somehow very far from us. In other words, on some other dimension, or in some other Space/Time framework, "right here", some other Universe that is here, behind Alice's mirror: "a mirror-universe on the other side of the Space-Time Continuum" as it has been neatly put by some investigators.
Although, the Qur'an (Koran) is not clear on this, it looks as though some of the Jinns could be fully physical and what we call extraterrestrials, while other species of them are of an altogether and finer sort of matter, corresponding to what various UFO investigators have tried to indicate by such terms as "ultraterrestrial" or "metaterrestrial". In thinking about these ideas, we might bear in mind the theory of the Russian philosopher P. D. Ouspensky regarding the possible existence of other, more subtle, levels of matter on which the elements of the Periodic Table of our own chemical world are repeated -- and, if I understand him aright, repeated more than once, on more than one level. The early writings of Dr. Meade Layne in the USA about the "Dense Etheric World" from which he maintained that the UFO entities and their craft originated should also be borne in mind. (His book The Coming of the Guardians, was published in 1958, and may prove to have been very important.) Certain of the benevolent Jinns may well be our "Guardians".
That there is some close affinity, or some link of destiny between Jinns and Mankind seems certain, for although the vast majority of the Jinns are devils, shaytans, nevertheless we are assured in the Qur'an that some among their many species are "goodies" and are capable of salvation. For it is specifically stated that Muhammad was sent as a Messenger to both Mankind and the Jinns, so that, in the Final Days, some of the Jinns will enter into Paradise, while the rest of them will be cast down into Hell. Their revelation to IBLIS, the Top Devil ( = "SATAN") is in general somewhat obscure. In the Qur'an Iblis is certainly described as a Jinn, but elsewhere in the Qur'an he is also described as an Angel. (Surely the explanation is that Iblis is that same high being, originally of Angelic status, who rebelled against God and is named in the Christian texts as "Lucifer") Had we the space, much more might be said about the Jinns and their doings, but only a brief account of their main characteristics can here be given. Their principal features, as listed below, are as I have gathered them from all the Muslim written and traditional sources that I have been able to consult over the past 15 years. The reader can see for himself the parallels with the reported features of UFO entities and can draw his own conclusions.
The Chief Characteristics of the Jinns are:
1. In the normal state they are not visible to ordinary human sight.
2. They are, however, capable of materializing and appearing in the physical world. And they can alternately make themselves visible or invisible at will.
3. They can change shape, and appear in any sort of guise, large or small.
4. They are able also to appear in the guise of animals.
5. They are inveterate liars and deceivers, and delight in bamboozling and misleading mankind with all manner of nonsense. (See the average Spiritualist séance for examples of their activities, and also the usual "communications" from UFO entities in close-encounter cases.)
6. They are addicted to the abduction or kidnapping of humans. (The Scotsman Robert Kirk, who wrote "The Secret Commonwealth" in 1691, evidently "knew more than was good for his health", and was killed by them.)
7. They delight in tempting humans into sexual intercourse and liaisons with them, and Arabic literature abounds with accounts of this kind of contact by mankind with both the "goodies" and the "baddies" among the Jinns. There are also even a considerable number of accounts of encounters between the "goodies" and famous Muslim saints.
In official Islam - and this cannot be over-emphasized - the existence of the Jinn's has always been completely accepted, even legally, and even to this day, in Islamic jurisprudence. The full consequences implied by their existence were worked out long ago. Their legal status, in all respects, was discussed and fixed, and the possible relations between them and mankind -- especially in relation to questions of marriage and property! - were seriously examined by jurists, as the greatest and most authoritative Western source, the Encyclopedia of Islam, confirms. Stories of sexual commerce between Jinn's and mankind have been of perennial interest to Arab readers, and it is important at this point to mention that in Chinese literature there is also a considerable tradition of this sort which awaits examination by Ufologists. The great Arabic literary catalogue known as the Fihrist, compiled in the year 373 of the Muslim Calendar ( = A.D. 995) by Muhammad bin Ishaq bin Abi Ya'qub al-Nadim al-Warraq al-Baghdadi, lists no less than sixteen works dealing with this theme. (Compare also the European occultists' records of sexual contact between men and female Sylphs, as well as the copious medieval Christian records relating to Incubi and Succabae.
