In terms of superstition, many Muslims appear to be stuck in the Middle Ages. They are still afraid of sorcery, of workers of black magic, curses, and probably evil spirits.

Is this true of Muslims in Western countries, or is this a strictly Middle Eastern thing?

We do believe in Djinn they are intermediary beings between humans and Angels. Typically we have no contact with each other. We believe Iblis, the Shaytan mentioned in the Qur'an and Bible is a Djinn. Unlike Christians we do not believe he was a "Fallen Angel" as the Angels do not have free will, therefore can not fall.

black magic whether it actually works or does not work is forbidden in Islam as it is considered a form of false worship.

Yes many Muslims from the Mideast do believe in black Magic, not so much among western Muslims.

Isn't all religion only (man made) superstition?
