What a cool web page! Thanks for posting the URL. I really enjoyed
reading that. 

I too have written a web page on the Evil Eye, looking at it primarily
from a European (Jewish and Christian) point of view, rather than Muslim
because i know relatively little about Islamic cultures. I was very glad
to see your page because it added a lot of information to my
understanding of the Evil Eye belief world-wide. The parallels beween
different cultures are obvious, of course, because, as you noted, the
belief goes back to ancient Sumer.
