## Mose Durst

From 1980 until 1988, the president of the Unification Church of the United States was Mose Durst, who was raised as an Orthodox Jew. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mose_Durst] In 1974 when Durst married his wife Onni Durst (Yeon-Soo Lim), Moon made her the leader of the Unification Church in California, and she and Mose Durst inherited the Boonville Moonie recruitment camp. [https://tragedyofthesixmarys.com/boonvilles-japanese-origins/] Durst started the "Creative Community Project" which consisted of a series of communes which were made to appear like they were not overtly affiliated with the Unification Church but which were designed to recruit new members to the Church, because Durst wrote that "there were many professionals in the Bay Area who not only did not want to involve themselves in any church, especially the Unification Church, and who didn't want to talk about God directly, but who wanted to live in a healthy community, a community with high ethical ideals". [https://www.tparents.org/UTS/HermUtheo/HermUtheo-6.htm] When a new member joined one of the communes that were part of the Creative Community project, they were not at first told that the commune was associated with Moon, but they were gradually exposed to Moon's teachings, they were made to undergo increasingly more intensive forms of training, and they were later taught to break their ties to their previous life and family. [https://biblelineministries.org/the-cult-of-sun-myung-moon/] A coordinator of the Creative Community in San Fransisco was named Daivid Stoller. [https://tragedyofthesixmarys.com/boonvilles-japanese-origins/] Daivid is a Hebrew variant of the name David, and on Forebears.io the surname Stoller has the highest frequency in Switzerland and the second-highest frequency in Israel. [https://www.nameslist.org/meaning/baby-name-Daivid, https://forebears.io/surnames/stoller] Mose Durst said: "I was an existentialist-Marxist before I came to the Unification Church". [https://www.tparents.org/UTS/HermUtheo/HermUtheo-6.htm] How come all anti-Marxist organizations are full of ex-Marxist Jews?

## Richard Rubenstein

Richard Rubenstein was a rabbi who received a master's degree in Hebrew literature, who received a doctorate degree for a thesis titled "Psychoanalysis and the Image of Evil in Rabbinic Literature", who served as the director of the B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation of several universities, and who published two books about Auschwitz. [http://collections.americanjewisharchives.org/ms/ms0685/ms0685.html] Rubenstein served on the advisory council of the Unification Church, and he was a member of the board of directors of _The Washington Times_, and in the 90s he served as the president of the University of Bridgeport which at the time was affiliated with the Unification Church. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_L._Rubenstein#Unification_Church] After Rubenstein's book _After Auschwitz_ was published in 1966, Rubenstein became the leading voice in the "Death of God" movement, which argued that because the Holocaust was allowed to happen, it had invalidated the idea of an omnipotent and benevolent God who safeguards the Jews as his chosen people. An article about Rubenstein at americanjewisharchives.org says: "Rubenstein is associated with the International Unification Church and became one of its most outspoken defenders, giving it legitimacy to the academic and political world through his stature. He has had several meetings with Reverend Sung Myung Moon and is perhaps one of the most coherent and comprehensive writers on the Unification Church. Rubenstein believes that new religions, particularly Asian religions, face the same backlash that all religions face as they confront the status quo. He was adamant that these new movements were not cults any more than established religions are." [http://collections.americanjewisharchives.org/ms/ms0685/ms0685.html] The titles of Rubenstein's articles include "Prospects For A Global Community - The Family Of Man - Reverend Moon's Vision", "Rev. Moon is a Good Man", and "In Praise of the Rev. Sun Myung Moon". [https://www.tparents.org/Library/Unification/Talks/Rubenstn/0-Toc.htm] Rubenstein was awarded an honorary doctorate degree by the Unification Theological Seminary. [ibid.] A memorial article about Rubenstein says: "Richard Rubenstein, together with his wife, Mrs. Betty Rogers Rubenstein, was a frequent and beloved contributor and active advisor to a number of the peace organizations established by UPF [Universal Peace Foundation] founders Rev. Sun Myung Moon and Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, including the International Conference on the Unity of the Sciences, the Professors World Peace Academy, the Washington Institute, the New Ecumenical Research Association, the Council for the World's Religions, the Assembly of the World's Religions, the Inter-Religious Federation for World Peace, the World Culture and Sports Festivals, the Interreligious and International Federation for World Peace, and UPF." [https://www.tparents.org/Library/Unification/Talks/Rubenstn/Rubenstein-210516.pdf] Rubenstein was also a columnist for the Japanese Moonie newspaper _Sekai Nippo_.

## International Security Council

CAUSA is an anti-Communist organization which was founded in 1980 by Moon's right hand man Bo Hi Pak. The "CAUSA worldview" is also known as "Godism", and it is centered around the principle that faith in God is the way to counteract the subversive ideology of Communism. (And maybe it's a coincidence, but one of Yuri Bezmenov's booklets consists of a lecture which he gave at a CAUSA conference, and Bezmenov also said that the way to counteract Soviet ideological subversion was faith in God.) An article on CAUSA's website says: "In 1984 the International Security Council (ISC) was founded under the CAUSA umbrella to conduct research and develop studies aimed at more accurately assessing the military and geopolitical threat posed by the Soviet Union and its ideological and military allies. Led by the late Dr. Joseph Churba who had served as a member of the National Security Council (NSC) under President Reagan, the ISC gathered top scholars on international security, including Eugene Rostow and Ambassador Charles Lichenstein." [http://www.causafoundation.org/giveforget4.html] The Wikipedia article about Churba says that he was born to a Syrian Jewish family, that he was known for his advocacy of Israel, that in 1965 he along with his friend Meir Kahane founded the "July Fourth Movement" which supported American involvement in the Vietnam War, that he was employed in the Air Force as an expert on Middle Eastern intelligence, that he worked as a campaign advisor for Reagan, and he served as an advisor for the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Churba] Rostow's parents were Russian Jews, he was the dean of Yale Law School, he served as Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, and he served as the director of the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eugene_V._Rostow] Charles Lichenstein was the second highest-ranking American diplomat to the United Nations in the 80s, he was the senior vice president of the PBS in the 70s, and he was the primary ghostwriter for Nixon's book _Six Crises_. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Lichenstein] Lichenstein's mother's maiden name was Kupperman, the gravestones of both of her parents feature a Star of David and Hebrew writing, and the gravestone of her father additionally features a Masonic compass. [https://www.geni.com/people/Anna-Haski-Sherman/6000000011767960691, https://www.geni.com/people/Charles-Kupperman/6000000005528034003, https://www.myheritage.com/names/charles_lichenstein] A pamphlet published by the ISC around the year 1985 says that their president was Dr. Joseph Churba, their senior vice president was Dr. Martin Sicker, their vice president was Antonio Betancourt, and their "international advisory board" consisted of 19 people who were mostly retired military officers. [https://www.tparents.org/Library/Unification/Talks/Pak/Pak-850000.pdf] In a speech in 1985, Bo Hi Pak said: "I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Joseph Churba, one of the leading experts in the field of geopolitics. He and Dr. Martin Sicker have been most instrumental in the development of ISC." [https://www.tparents.org/Library/Unification/Books/Tims1/Tims1-28.htm] The titles of Martin Sicker's books include _The Making of a Pariah State: The Adventurist Politics of Muammar Qaddafi_ (1987), _The Bear and the Lion: Soviet Imperialism and Iran_ (1988), _The Judaic State: A Study in Rabbinic Political Theory_ (1988), _Israel's Quest for Security_ (1989), _The Moral Maxims of the Sages of Israel: Pirkei Avot_ (2004), and _An Introduction to Judaic Thought and Rabbinic Literature_ (2007).

## Joseph Churba's relationship with Meir Kahane

From a _New York Times_ article about Kahane from 1971: [https://www.nytimes.com/1971/01/24/archives/the-complex-past-of-meir-kahane-meir-kahanes-past-as-scholar-as.html] > As a young man in Flatbush, Meir Kahane had a close friend named Joseph Churba. The two went to the same schools and had attended a camp in the Catskills run by Betar, the revisionist Zionist organization. They were to form a professional association. > Mr. Churba, who also is a rabbi, is today a professor of Middle Eastern studies at the United States Air University at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Ala. > In 1965 he was an instructor at Adelphi College and working on his doctorate at Columbia University. In May of that year, Mr. Churba rented a mailing address and a phone number under the name of Consultants Research Associates, 509 Fifth Avenue. > It was when he started working at Consultants Research that Rabbi Kahane moved seriously into the identity of Michael King. One of the team's first ventures was the July Fourth Movement, an attempt to mobilize campus support in favor of the Vietnam war. From the book _Meir Kahane: The Public Life and Political Thought of an American Jewish Radical_: [https://books.google.com/books?id=tjUoEAAAQBAJ&pg=PT82, https://libgen.lc/index.php?req=magid+kahane+public+life] > Kahane's childhood and later college friend Joseph Churba, a fellow Brooklynite born to a large Syrian Jewish family, became his connection to the greater political world he sought. Churba, a wily character with strong politically conservative leanings, was the worldlier of the two. After college he started a Washington-based political consulting firm aimed at supporting American involvement in the conflict in Vietnam. Churba made Kahane a partner in the firm, introducing him to both the Washington nightlife and its policy scene in the early 1960s. Through his work with Churba, Kahane began to present himself as an expert on communism and anti-Semitism and learned his way around the corridors of power in Washington.[1] > Through Churba, Kahane made professional contacts with the FBI in 1963, when he apparently was asked by the bureau to obtain intelligence from the right-wing anticommunist John Birch Society.[2] Around the same time, Churba and Kahane's consulting firm opened a branch office on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, but it doesn't appear that the firm actually operated from that address. As Kahane later confided, "What we wanted was an East Side address that could impress prospective clients."[3] > [...] > 1. On Churba's colorful life, see Friedman, _False Prophet_, 58-65. See his obituary, "Joseph Churba, Intelligence Aid." Cf. Yerushalmi, "Dr. Joseph Churba." Hayim Yerushalmi was one of the pseudonyms Kahane used in his _Jewish Press_ articles. I want to thank Menachem Butler for this reference. > 2. The story of Kahane's relationship with the FBI is complicated. Robert Friedman notes that he was told by an FBI agent that Kahane never worked for them. But a senior Justice Department official said that "he and the Bureau were well acquainted." See Friedman, _False Prophet_, 61-62; Kotler, _Heil Kahane_, 24-30. > 3. See Friedman, _False Prophet_, 63. Libby Kahane notes that she tried unsuccessfully to locate Churba's papers after he died; she was notified by Sol Sanders, Churba's associate, that Churba had destroyed most of his files. See L. Kahane, _Rabbi Meir Kahane_, vol. 1, 587n20. Footnote 3 above gives the impression that Churba remained affiliated with Kahane until Kahane's death in 1990. From the book _The False Prophet: Rabbi Meir Kahane: From FBI Informant to Knesset Member_: [https://libgen.lc/index.php?req=friedman+false+prophet+kahane] > Sometime in 1963, Kahane removed his _yarmulke_ and _tallis_ and stepped into the world of covert action. Using the name Michael King, he began a research and intelligence gathering business with Joseph Churba, a childhood friend and fellow Betarnick. > Before long, Kahane, the self-proclaimed descendant of twenty-eight generations of rabbis, was cruising for shiksas in East Side singles bars, ordering martinis, and infiltrating domestic extremist groups for the FBI. > [...] > In 1963, Churba, then working on his doctorate at Columbia University, had already forged links with the CIA and Israeli intelligence, giving Kahane an entrée to the shadowy world of spooks and prominent cold warriors. Although Churba went on to become a Middle East specialist for Air Force Intelligence, a foreign affairs adviser to Ronald Reagan during the 1980 presidential campaign, and senior policy adviser to the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, little is known about his early years. > [...] > Joseph Churba and Meir Kahane went to the same schools, joined Betar, attended its summer camp in the Catskills, and later studied together at Yeshiva Mirrer. Churba, however, eventually obtained his rabbinical ordination from a Sephardic yeshiva in Jerusalem. > [...] > Like Kahane, Churba continued his ultra-right-wing Zionist activities into adulthood. In 1956, for example, Churba organized a number of demonstrations protesting Western arms sales to the Arab world, according to information obtained from Churba's secret FBI file. In February 1956, Churba led a pro-Israel rally in front of the British Mission in New York. Two months later, he led Betar picketers in a demonstration in front of the Egyptian Consulate. > [...] > Churba currently heads the Center for International Security, an ultra-right-wing think tank in Washington funded by Reverend Sun Myung Moon's political arm, the Confederation of Associations for the Unity of the Societies of America (CAUSA). {Footnote: CAUSA was founded in 1980 by Bo Hi Pak, a former Korean CIA agent, and Kim San In, the former Korean CIA station chief in Mexico City. CAUSA's first executive director was Warren Richardson, formerly general counsel to the anti-Semitic Liberty Lobby. CAUSA's advisory board includes General George Keegan and Daniel Graham, former deputy director of the CIA. / In 1985, Moon was imprisoned for thirteen months in the United States for income tax evasion. His felony conviction has not stopped him from having influence in the nation's capital through his newspaper, _The Washington Times_, and other organizations. Even though he is a strong supporter of Israel, Moon has been criticized by some Jewish leaders for attracting numerous young Jews to his cult-like Unification Church, which preaches a strange brew of Christianity, Confucianism, and anticommunism.} > [...] > In any case, while Kahane was still tossing newspapers from his Austin two-seater in Laurelton, Churba was already in Washington lobbying on behalf of the CIA-installed South Vietnamese puppet Ngo Dinh Diem, according to U.S. government sources. > In early 1963, Churba introduced Kahane to Washington night life, front groups, and covert action. The possibility of infiltrating domestic extremist groups as well as the growing anti-war movement - perhaps even secretly aiding Israel - excited the failed rabbi. > [...] > Sometime in 1963, said Kahane, the FBI asked if he and Churba would infiltrate the then little-known John Birch Society to find out the source of its funds. This secretive society of right-wing extremists was founded in 1958 by Robert Welch, a successful confectionery manufacturer. "One day the FBI came to us and complained that since they had such a bad public image from only investigating leftists, would we investigate the Birchers for them?" Kahane told me. "They said they didn't have the right people, so they wanted to contract it out to us, which they do sometimes. But we really couldn't do a decent job ... using conventional research methods. I could clip articles and go to meetings and write reports ... but that's not what the FBI really wanted. So I said, 'I'll tell you what. Why don't I join the Birchers?' They thought that was phenomenal. 'That's exactly what we want you to do,' they told us. I got deeper and deeper into it." > Kahane claims that he went underground using the name Michael King because, he told me, "naturally, Meir Kahane with a yarmulke wouldn't have gotten very far. I constantly had to make up reasons why I couldn't attend meetings on Friday nights." For many months between 1963 and 1965 he says that he traveled through Southern California and the Southwest. It was in this bastion of right-wing conservatism, he says, that he was first exposed to virulent anti-Semitism. He met middleand upper-middle-class Birchers who theorized that America's social ills, from drug abuse to racial tension, were orchestrated by an international Jewish conspiracy to destroy the nation from within so it would fall to communism. > After he tracked down leading Birchers, he said, the F.B.I. would move in and threaten to reveal their identities - which, Kahane claims, usually cooled their ardor, because they did not want to risk public embarrassment. "It was a very dangerous job," Kahane recalled. "I rooted out the monied Birchers, then the FBI went in and leaned on them. ... I must say that the FBI should be given credit. I'm no fan of the FBI, but they did a job on these wealthy people." > An FBI spokesman in New York said that Kahane never worked for the Bureau. Kahane said: "If the FBI says it isn't so, then they have their reasons." But a senior Justice Department official admitted that Kahane and the Bureau were well acquainted. The official, who reviewed Kahane's classified FBI file before our meeting in November 1987, told me that Kahane provided "useful information on domestic security matters" to the Bureau during the 1960s, although he stopped short of confirming Kahane's claim that he and Churba were contracted by the FBI to infiltrate the Birchers. "Kahane provided some information on the Birchers, but wasn't paid," said the official, who requested anonymity. "He was a cooperative citizen, not a regular informant. Even then it was believed he had his own axe to grind. We thought it served his purpose to provide information on his competition. Kahane was a Zionist and the Birchers were anti-Catholic, anti-Black, anti-liberal, and anti-Jewish. Anyone who is really working for the FBI [in deep cover] doesn't boast. ... He can't prove it, and you can't expect me to document it." > David Ryan, the former head of the FBI's notorious Domestic Intelligence Division, or Division Five, which spearheaded Bureau Director J. Edgar Hoover's campaign to undermine the civil rights and anti-war movements in the 1960s and 1970s, told me that he did not believe that Kahane was involved with the Bureau "to the extent where he could make enough money to make a living. He was a good citizen. He would call to express his concern. I know our current President Ronald Reagan did that." Indeed, in the late 1940s Hollywood actor Ronald Reagan served as both an informant for the FBI about the alleged Communist infiltration of the film industry and a friendly witness for the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC). > No less so than in the 1940s and 1950s, the Sixties was a ripe time to work as a professional informant-infiltrator for the government. It was a time when paranoia ran deep. So much so, in fact, that hundreds of organizations and political gatherings were infiltrated and disrupted by government agents. At the same time, a number of right-wing "think tanks" provided the CIA and the FBI with information about "subversives" that the government might otherwise be prevented from obtaining because of constitutional and legislative restrictions. One student of the era estimates that there were as many as ten thousand political informants then working for the government. Informants, writes Victor S. Navasky in his 1980 book, Naming Names, had become "fixtures on the landscape. ... The espionage exposers, the kept witnesses, and the confidential informants had in common that they were ultimately volunteers, enthusiasts of betrayal." > Kahane's and Churba's enthusiasm was apparently limited only by the amount of money they could make. Sometime in early 1965, they set up yet another front group called Consultant Research Associates (CRA). CRA's primary aim was to promote the Vietnam War inside the American Jewish community. They also continued to spy for the government, mostly on left-wing student groups opposed to the war. Again they turned to Horowitz for funding. "They wanted to do various kinds of projects," Horowitz said. "Churba wanted to make a film about the importance of Vietnam. He used to go to Vietnam and had an 'in' with the Vietnamese ambassador in Washington." Horowitz put up $20,000 and became CRA's president. The Queens businessman wanted a lawyer to draw up a partnership contract, but Churba protested, claiming falsely that he was an international lawyer and would write the contract himself. Horowitz later regretted caving in to Churba's request. > In May 1965, Churba and Kahane rented a mail drop and a phone number under the name of Consultant Research Associates, 509 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. They also rented an apartment at 351 East 85th Street on New York's Upper East Side under the name of Michael King. Both men stayed there at times. The aspiring spooks never told Horowitz about the apartment, nor did Kahane tell his family. "What we wanted was an East Side address that could impress prospective clients," Kahane later explained. > Kahane almost certainly never used the East Side pad to entertain prospective investors from New York's Orthodox Jewish community. Instead, he made the rounds of Orthodox synagogues, mining his contacts for funding. "They were collecting money all over Laurelton, constantly boasting about what an important job they were doing for the government," Rabbi Rominek recalled. "Churba cashed in on Kahane's goodwill. Nobody had ever heard of Churba. But Kahane had a wonderful name in the community because he was so good with kids." > During this period, Kahane also began to write more frequently for _The Jewish Press_. On March 19, 1965, the Orthodox weekly ran a gushing profile of Churba that portrayed him as an up-and-coming political star who would one day be as big as the Dulles brothers who headed the CIA and the State Department. The article said that Churba was an ordained Orthodox rabbi, a professor of government at Adelphi University, and a top-level consultant for the Pentagon and the State Department, who was often whisked away at a moment's notice to huddle with government big shots. Churba boasted about his personal relationships with Third World leaders such as Alex Quasson Sackey of Ghana, then president of the UN General Assembly, Tom Mboya of Kenya, and Joseph Kasavubu, president of the Congo. "In my talks with these people, while apparently a disinterested party to the Arab-Israeli dispute," he told the paper, "I will say that I have more than a little desire to sway them towards understanding the Israeli position." > At the end of the interview, the Jewish Press reporter breathlessly summed up his impressions: "Churba was at home in two worlds - the world of the Torah and the intricate world of foreign affairs and intrigue. In my mind I came back once again to his desk loaded with international papers of all kinds, on top of which rested a Baba Kama [one of the tractates of the Talmud]." The article was written by Hayim Yerushalmi, one of Kahane's growing list of pen names. Kahane undoubtedly wrote the laudatory article to impress potential investors. > [...] > In the spring of 1965, Churba and Kahane set up the July Fourth Movement. According to Kahane, the organization tried to create cells on American college campuses to support the Vietnam War and to block the spread of the radical student Left. Kahane later told me that their pro-Vietnam venture received "seed money" from the government "and certain groups within the labor movement," including the AFL-CIO under the leadership of George Meany. Churba and Kahane also received support from legendary cold warriors Jay Lovestone and Irving Brown, who had been top officials of the American Communist Party in the 1920s before undergoing a "Damascus Road" conversion and who subsequently ran the AFL-CIO's powerful International Affairs Department under the tutelage of the CIA. > It was under the CIA's direction that Lovestone and Brown - using Corsican and Italian mafiosos - set up right-wing death squads in Marseilles and other European cities after the Second World War to break the burgeoning left-wing labor movement. > [...] > In 1968, Kahane and Churba wrote a book, _The Jewish Stake in Vietnam_, which argued that if the United States reneged on its commitment to South Vietnam it would do the same to Israel. It was therefore vital for American Jews to support the war, though Kahane and Churba themselves never volunteered for military service. _The Jewish Stake_ was published by Crossroads Publishing at 2 West Twenty-third Street in New York. Kahane told me that Crossroads Publishing had been funded by "the government" solely to distribute its pro-Vietnam polemic. > [...] > Soon after Churba was hired as a special adviser on the Middle East by Air Force Intelligence in December 1972, an anonymous letter sent to the Justice Department accused him of being a security risk. The FBI launched an investigation, but could neither prove nor disprove the allegations, according to a U.S. government official who requested anonymity. At the time, Churba was considered the top U.S. contact with Israeli intelligence in the United States, the official said. > [...] > In 1977, Churba assembled a list of "pro-Arab" bureaucrats in the Pentagon and the National Security Council who he believed should be removed from their jobs because they did not "understand" Israel's special security needs, according to former government officials. He allegedly gave the list to the late Senator Richard Stone of Florida, then a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and chairman of the Subcommittee on Near Eastern and South Asian Affairs, which had jurisdiction over the Middle East. Stone summoned several high-ranking officials to his office and interrogated them about their views on Israel. Later, Stone, who was Jewish, presented the list to then National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski. A spokesman for Brzezinski told _The Washington Post_ that his boss found the meeting with Stone "interesting" and "helpful," although no one that Stone allegedly had targeted was fired. Nevertheless, according to one official who was grilled by Stone, the witch-hunt had a chilling effect on government officials whose views ran counter to the powerful pro-Israel lobby. > In 1980, Churba became an adviser to the transition team of President-elect Ronald Reagan, writing position papers on the Middle East and on defense policy. {Footnote: The Brookings Institution's Middle East expert William Quandt notes that an article by Reagan called "Recognizing the Israeli Asset," which appeared in _The Washington Post_ in August 1979, "suggests the influence of Joseph Churba ... who may have well been the ghostwriter..." The similarity in the rhetorical flourishes, the line of argument, and the key passage in Reagan's article and a passage in Churba's 1977 book, _The Politics of Defeat: America's Decline in the Middle East_, "suggests either a single author for both or plagiarism," wrote Quandt in _The Middle East, Ten Years After Camp David_. Reagan's article says: "The Carter administration has yet to grasp that in this region conflict and tension are endemic, a condition traceable largely to the fragmented sectarian nature of Middle Eastern society." In his book, Churba wrote about "the conflict and tension endemic to the [Middle East] region. This condition is traceable largely to the sectarian and fragmented nature of Middle East society."} But he lost the post after he declared in a speech in Johannesburg that the United States should support the apartheid regime. Subsequently, he was appointed senior policy advisor to the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, where he remained until 1982. He then founded the Unification Church-funded Center for International Security - an organization of former military and intelligence officers dedicated to promoting their hard-line positions. In a 1984 book, The American Retreat, Churba accused Reagan of failing to build up America's defense despite record military budgets, of cheating on campaign pledges of unqualified support for Israel by making Saudi Arabia the keystone of his Middle East policies, and of underassessing the Marxist thrust in Latin America. More recently, in October 1986, Churba's think tank held a conference in Tel Aviv on the subject of terrorism. The panelists included Peter Goldman, then the director of the farright, pro-Israel lobby group Americans for a Safe Israel, who subsequently became a leader of Kahane's Kach Party in America, and Rafi Eytan, Mossad's former chief of operations who was then running Israeli spy Jonathan Jay Pollard - a U.S. naval intelligence officer who received a life sentence in 1987 for passing U.S. military secrets, including top-secret codes, to Israel. > [...] > Churba claims that he has had nothing to do with Kahane since 1968. "He is a danger to Israel and the Jewish people," he told me in a brief 1984 telephone interview. But according to several former top JDL officials, Churba was instrumental in helping Kahane set up the JDL - an organization that initially was not unlike other front groups that the two men had concocted. Moreover, according to Sonia Kahane and several well-connected Kach sympathizers in Israel, Churba still visits Meir in Jerusalem. > I asked retired General George Keegan, former head of Air Force Intelligence, why he hired Churba for such a sensitive job after his less than distinguished years with Kahane. Keegan dismissed Churba's earlier escapades with Kahane as youthful exuberance. Almost as an afterthought, he linked Churba to the JDL - an association that Churba categorically denies. "I was aware... Joe was involved with the JDL," Keegan told me. "It was a phase he went through, which I considered very carefully before I had him come to work with me." > [...] > Kahane is also driven by his passions. When asked to explain why he worked as an informant and propagandist for the government during the 1960s, he declared that he did it for the sake of his fellow Jews. "My concern with the Birchers and with the left-wing student movement was always a Jewish one," he told me in 1984. "I saw a growing sense of isolation on the part of Americans from world affairs. To keep our noses out of world affairs is not good for Jews. After Vietnam, I knew the days of American Jewry were numbered. America was a paper tiger. It would never fight for Israel."

## Lee Shapiro

Lee Dittman Shapiro was a member of the Unification Church and a graduate of the Unification Theological Seminary. In 1986, he released the film _Nicaragua Was Our Home_ about the persecution of the Miskito people by the Sandonistas. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lee_Shapiro] Shapiro's film was sponsored by CAUSA, which at the time also directly assisted the CIA in supplying the Contra forces and paid for flights by rebel leaders. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unification_Church#Anti-communism] In 1987 when Shapiro was in Afganistan shooting another documentary sponsored by CAUSA, it was reported that he along with his soundman were killed after a group of anti-Communist guerillas they traveled with had been ambushed, but according to another version of the story they were not actually killed. [https://www.nytimes.com/1987/10/28/world/2-americans-reported-killed-in-an-ambush-in-afghanistan.html] A Facebook group ran by Shapiro's widow says that Shapiro "was born in Oklahoma where he grw up Jewish and then joined the Unification movement." [https://www.facebook.com/groups/40054086465] And even though Shapiro is supposed to have converted to Christianity, his gravestone features a Star of David and Hebrew writing but no Christian cross. [https://oklahomagravestones.org/view.php?id=59653] In American propaganda, the Miskitus were portrayed almost like Jews under NS Germany, which angered the Jews who can never be trumped in victimhood: [https://www.envio.org.ni/articulo/3245] > On the MacNeil-Lehrer Report, Ambassador Kirkpatrick claimed that the Sandinistas were building concentration camps for 250,000 Miskitus. This is some three times the total number of Nicaraguan Miskitus, quite apart from the fact that only some 22,000 people (Miskitus, Sumus and mestizos) living along the border were affected by the evacuation, or that the resettlements to which 8,500 of them went bore no relation to any reasonable definition of a concentration camp. > [...] > Most embarrassing of all was the picture published at that same time in the rightwing French publication Le Figaro, curiously mis-captioned as Miskitus being burned by the Sandinistas. When then-Secretary of State Alexander Haig brandished the magazine before television cameras, the shot's photographer quickly identified it as one of Sandinista insurrectionists killed by Somoza, whose bodies were being burned by the Red Cross - in the Pacific, in 1978. > [...] > Writer Abraham Brumberg, in a rare critique of the President's lying ("Reagan's Untruths About Managua," NYT Op-Ed page, June 18, 1985), took particular offense at "the ease with which Mr. Reagan and his associates bandy about the term 'genocide,' mentioning the Miskitu Indians in the same breath with the Holocaust." Shapiro's film may also have been less than honest: [ibid.] > Shapiro claims to have gone with 100 Miskitu guerrillas who were "on their way to the occupied village of Francia Sirpi where 200 Sandinista soldiers keep constant watch over the Miskitu people. I... became witness to an international incident in which a [US] bishop and a priest felt they barely escaped assassination by the Sandinistas." > First of all, that incident took place in December 1983; Shapiro, elsewhere in the film, said his clandestine trip into the Coast took place in late 1984. Second, there were only some five militiamen in the village; the only effort Shapiro makes to demonstrate his accusation about 200 troops is to record a lot of shouting and impressive machinegun fire into a pitch black night sky. Father Wendelin Shafer, in a cut-in interview not made during the trip, only admits to hiding under the bed during the sound of battle. This is in line with the version given by a villager who escaped the exodus and said the whole firefight had been simulated by Misura to frighten people into leaving. The previously linked article also says that "it was the Miskito king in the late 19th century and every central government following him that had conceded the indigenous lands to the North American companies or designated them as belonging to the state. The Sandinistas, by contrast, nationalized the mining companies in 1979, began immediately to invest in much-needed schools, health centers and other social infrastructure, and approved a Misurasata proposal to give titles to indigenous communal lands - a project that fell apart in February 1981 only when Misurasata leader Stedman Fagoth demanded that 75% of the coast come under Misurasata jurisdiction and threatened to expel all Creoles and Mestizos."

## Dan Fefferman

Daniel Fefferman is yet another high-ranking Jewish Moonie: [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dan_Fefferman] > In 1974, Fefferman was the executive director of the National Prayer and Fast Committee, a group organized by Sun Myung Moon to support Richard Nixon during the Watergate scandal.[3][4] According to one report Moon had chosen Fefferman (who is Jewish) to become the Prime Minister of Israel at some future time.[4] Fefferman was an official with the Freedom Leadership Foundation, which was also founded by Moon, and deemed a "political arm" of the Unification Church.[5] According to testimony provided by Fefferman to the United States Congress, at a scheduled September 1974 rally by the Freedom Leadership Foundation against the government of Japan, members debated cutting off their fingers as a form of raising dramatic effect, but instead decided on egg throwing. The rally was canceled prior to being carried out.[6] > Fefferman testified in August 1977 before the Fraser Committee, a subcommittee of the United States House of Representatives which investigated possible ties between Sun Myung Moon and the South Korean National Intelligence Service ("KCIA").[3] Testimony from Fefferman confirmed that he had social ties to officials within the South Korean embassy.[6] Fefferman testified that he had arranged a meeting in 1975 between Republican aide Edwin Feulner of the Heritage Foundation and South Korean Minister Kim Yung Hwan, to potentially put together a group of congressional aides who would travel to South Korea.[5][6] Hwan was then-station chief for the KCIA.[6] > [...] > In 1977 Fefferman served as leader of the Unification Church in the state of Illinois,[3] as well as regional church director for the Midwestern United States.[10] In 1982, he was headquarters director and national president of Collegiate Association for the Research of Principles (CARP),[1][11] a collegiate organization founded by Moon and church members in 1955.[12][13][14] It was described by _The Washington Post_ as "the youth organization of the Rev. Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church",[11] and by the ICSA as "the UC's youth arm".[1] Fefferman was the editor of the national journal of the Unification Church in 1989,[15] and served as chief editor of the first edition of Divine Principle in English, as well as other church publications.[1] > [...] > Since 1984, Fefferman has been the executive director of the Unification Church affiliated organization the International Coalition for Religious Freedom in Virginia, which is active in protesting what it considers to be threats to religious freedom by governmental agencies.[16][17][18] In 1999 the International Coalition for Religious Freedom filed a lawsuit in United States district court in Baltimore, Maryland, against a Maryland state task force which was investigating new religious movements on state college campuses.[16][17][18][19] Fefferman commented to _The Boston Globe_ about the case, "The United States has correctly criticized European states for scrutinizing smaller and newer religions through government commissions such as this one. The state of Maryland has been manipulated into engaging in religious McCarthyism by carrying out a biased inquisition into new religious minorities as 'cults.'"[16][17] In 1999 Fefferman defended the rights of Wiccan soldiers in the United States military to practice their faith.[20] > In 2000, Fefferman wrote to his colleagues about the Million Family March, planned to be held in Washington, D.C., and sponsored by Moon and Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, acknowledging that the two leaders' views differed on multiple issues but shared a view of a "God-centered family".[21] In 2001 Bill Gertz, author and an investigative reporter for _The Washington Times_, which was owned by the Unification Church, cited Fefferman as a person who "contributed valuable inspiration, advice, help, and support" to Gertz's book _Betrayal_.[22] In 2004 Fefferman said that religious persecution of Muslims is probably under reported due to the fact that many victims are refugees, in both Muslim and non-Muslim countries.[23] Fefferman gave a presentation on the Unification Church at a conference of the International Cultic Studies Association in 2004.[2][24] In 2008 he gave a presentation on the Unification Church at the London School of Economics at a conference sponsored by the organizations INFORM and CESNUR.[25] In 2009 he criticized the government of Kazakhstan for its treatment of religious minorities, including members of the Unification Church.[26] The CARP songbook features several song written by Fefferman. [https://www.google.com/search?q=site:tparents.org/Library/Unification/Topics/CarpSong+fefferman] The lyrics of one song talk about how God has given the land of Israel to the Jews and how the Jews are winning God's fight: "And the blood of our God will pour forth o'er His own, to make fertile a dry desert sand. And he'll gather the fruit of the seeds He has sown. Trampling vintage for the marriage of the lamb. God has given this land, claiming His right, winning His fight we stand." [https://www.tparents.org/Library/Unification/Topics/CarpSong/079.htm]

## Neocon propagandist Bill Gertz (probably gentile)

The Wikipedia article about Daniel Fefferman says that he "contributed valuable inspiration, advice, help, and support" for Bill Gertz's book _Betrayal_. On January 24th 2020, _The Washington Times_ published an article by Bill Gertz where he reported on comments by Dany Shoham who said that the novel coronavirus may have leaked from a laboratory associated with a Chinese biowarfare program. [http://web.archive.org/web/20200125095419/https://m.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/jan/24/virus-hit-wuhan-has-two-laboratories-linked-chines/] I think the article by Gertz represented the first time the lab leak theory was proposed in a major mainstream publication. Dany Shoham has been employed as a senior analyst for Israeli military intelligence, and he specializes in writing about the dangers of CBW development in axis of evil countries like China, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Russia, and Syria. [https://besacenter.org/author/dshoham/] On January 25th 2020, Gertz was featured as a guest on the first episode of Steve Bannon's "War Room: Pandemic" show. [https://warroom.org/2020/01/27/special-war-room-pandemic/] (I wonder how Bannon knew on January 25th that COVID would turn into a pandemic or that it would become a significant enough event that he should start a new series of shows dedicated to COVID, because according to WHO's situation report for January 25th 2020, there were only 1,320 reported cases of the novel coronavirus globally out of which only 23 were outside China. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_the_COVID-19_pandemic_in_January_2020]) On September 26th, 2001, _The Washington Times_ published an article by Bill Gertz titled "Bin Laden terror group tries to acquire chemical arms", where Gertz's sources throughout the article were unnamed intelligence officials. [https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2001/sep/26/20010926-025626-5427r/] In 2002 and 2003, _The Washington Times_ posted several articles by Gertz about how Iraq was developing chemical and biological weapons. [https://gertzfile.com/morearticles2.html] In 2003, the _International Journal of Intelligence and CounterIntelligence_ published an article by Dany Shoham titled "The Anthrax Evidence Points to Iraq". [https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/713830377] On Forebears.io, the name Gertz has the highest frequency in Denmark and the second highest frequency in Israel. However I don't think Gertz is Jewish, because when I googled for a combination of the names of Gertz's family members, I found an old slideshow by Gertz's daughter who said that her nationality was "English, Irish, Scottish, Welsh, and German". [https://www.tparents.org/Library/Unification/Talks2/Gertz/Gertz-070730.htm, https://www.slideshare.net/AleksStar/gertz-a] When Gertz received an honorary doctorate degree from the Unification Theological Ceremony, an article about him said: "Gertz is the most accomplished professional writer in the Unification movement. Gertz, who grew up on Long Island, New York, joined the Unification movement more than 40 years ago and became a reporter for the Washington Times in the early 1980s. [...] Impressively, Gertz achieved his outstanding record without the benefit of a college degree, as he devoted his youth on the front line of Unification movement and then pulled himself up by his bootstraps in the journalistic school of hard knocks." [https://www.tparents.org/Library/Unification/Talks2/Gertz/0-Toc.htm] Gertz's son was given a Seung Hwa Moonie burial ceremony. [https://www.tparents.org/Library/Unification/Talks2/Gertz/Gertz-070801.htm]

## Frederick Sontag and John K. Roth (unsure)

Another proponent of the Unification Church who was at least half Jewish was Frederick Sontag, even though I didn't find information on whether his mother was a Jew: [https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-2009-jun-20-me-frederick-sontag20-story.html] > His father was a Russian Jew who survived the pogroms and became a Baptist after settling in California in the early 1900s. > [...] > In 1977, he published the book "Sun Myung Moon and the Unification Church," which was based in part on an unusual, nine-hour interview with the publicity-averse Moon, whose movement was stirring controversy in the United States for its aggressive recruitment and fundraising tactics. > Sontag's scholarly interest was drawn to what he saw as "a deep spiritual side" to the movement. Sontag cowrote at least four books with his student John K. Roth: _The American Religious Experience_ (1972), _God and America's Future_ (1977), _Defense of God_ (1985), and _The Questions of Philosophy_ (1987). Roth wrote several books about the Holocaust, he was a member of the United States Holocaust Memorial Council, and he served on the church relations committee of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, he served as a visiting professor of Holocaust studies at the University of Haifa, and he received an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from Hebrew Union College. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_K._Roth] In 1992 at the ICUS Moonie conference in Seoul, Roth presented an article titled "Human Nature in Theory and Practice: Reflections on Fundamentals of Unification Thought". The article began: "Unification Thought offers a distinctive and detailed theory about human nature. Stressing that our present existence is fallen and that we do not live as God planned, it describes what God intended human life to be and how a restoration of Original Human Nature can occur." [https://icus.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/Roth-John-K.-Human-Nature-in-Theory-and-Practice-Reflections-on-Fundamentals-of-Unification-Thought.pdf] Roth's article features 22 instances of the word God but zero instances of the words Jesus or Christ. Richard Rubenstein and John K. Roth were the coauthors of a book titled _Approaches to Auschwitz, Revised Edition: The Holocaust and Its Legacy_. [https://www.amazon.com/Approaches-Auschwitz-Holocaust-Its-Legacy/dp/0664223532] In the same 1992 ICUS conference in Seoul which included Roth's presentation, Rubenstein's wife Betty Rogers Rubenstein presented a paper titled "Toward a Unification Aesthetic". [https://icus.org/conferences/icus-xix/] And in the same conference, a paper titled "Creation in Unification Thought, A Critical Inquiry" was presented by Michael Berenbaum, who is a rabbi and a Holocaust scholar who at the time was the Project Director of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Roth is supposedly Presbyterian: "Born September 3, 1940, in Grand Haven, MI; son of Josiah V. (a Presbyterian minister) and Doris Irene (King) Roth; married Evelyn Lillian Austin, June 25, 1964; children: Andrew Lee, Sarah Austin. Education: Pomona College, B.A. (magna cum laude), 1962; Yale University, attended Divinity School, 1962-63, M.A., 1965, Ph.D., 1966. Religion: Presbyterian." [https://www.encyclopedia.com/arts/educational-magazines/roth-john-king-1940] John K. Roth's father was named Josiah Roth, and Josiah's siblings had names like Aaron, Ezra, Noah, Reuben, and Ruth. [https://www.genealogycenter.info/acfrench/familychart.php?personID=I22710&tree=acfrench&rev=1] John K. Roth's father's mother was named Leah Gerig, and her siblings had names like Benjamin, Jacob, Joseph, Leah, Martha, and Samuel. [https://www.genealogycenter.info/acfrench/getperson.php?personID=I21511&tree=acfrench] However names from the Old Testament were favored among both Puritans and Dutch Calvinists, so I don't know if the same was true of Presbyterians (even though often the reason why Calvinists had Hebrew names was that they were crypto-Jews).

## Morton Kaplan

Morton Kaplan was the chairman of two Moonie organizations: the International Conference on the Unity of the Sciences (ICUS) and the Professors World Peace Academy (PWPA). From 1986 until 2004, Kaplan was the editor of the _World & I_ Moonie magazine published by the Washington Times Corporation. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morton_Kaplan] I didn't find any source which directly said that Kaplan was a Jew, even though an article written after he died said that he passed away "on the eve of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year (5778)": [https://familyfedihq.org/2017/10/usa-remembering-dr-kaplan-a-great-supporter-of-true-parents/] > On September 27, one of True Parents' most beloved supporters, who is also one of their deepest admirers, Dr. Morton A. Kaplan, passed away quietly in Chicago on the eve of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year (5778) at 96 years of age. Dr. Kaplan was the Distinguished Service Professor of Political Science, Emeritus at the prestigious University of Chicago. He once simply stated, "Knowing Rev. Moon has made me a better human being." > Dr. Kaplan was chosen by True Parents to be the chairman of the International Conference on the Unity of the Sciences (ICUS) during the 1970s and would later become chairman of the Professors World Peace Academy and publisher of The World and I magazine. The 23rd ICUS, which was held in Korea on February 5, 2017 as part of the Cheon Il Guk (God's Kingdom of Eternal Peace) Leaders Assembly at the Cheongpyeong Heaven and Earth Training Center, served as a world-level revival of the work ICUS has continued to carry out since the 1970s. Most recently, True Mother mentioned Dr. Kaplan in the speech she delivered at Madison Square Garden, noting that at True Father's request Dr. Kaplan had publicly announced the death of communism. > It brought True Parents great joy to have Dr. Kaplan with all his quirky humor introduce them at various speaking events in Chicago. > The alumni board at the University of Chicago at one point rejected Dr. Kaplan's nomination to become chairman of the university's Political Science Department because of their fear that his involvement with Rev. Moon would cost them significant alumni dollars, to which Dr. Kaplan responded, "Don't feel sorry for me; I would not trade ten academic chairmanships for my lifelong relationship with Rev. Moon."

## Frank Kaufmann

Frank Kaufmann has been the director of several Moonie organization: Council for the World's Religions since 1985, Inter Religious Federation for World Peace since at least 1992 (but possibly since it was founded in 1991 by Moon), and Professors World Peace Association since 2019. [https://www.tparents.org/Library/Unification/Talks/Kaufmann/0-Toc.htm, https://www.irfwp.org/wp/index.php/about-us/, https://icus.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/Kaufmann-on-Molinski.pdf]

## Sarah Witt

Sarah Witt claimed that she was the first Jewish member of the Unification Movement. [https://www.tparents.org/Library/Unification/Talks/Witt/Witt-890700.htm] She wrote that "even my name, Sarah, was predestined; just as the first Jewish woman, Abraham's wife, I had to be named Sarah as the first Jewish member of the Third Israel". [ibid.] The Unification Church teaches that the First Israel consisted of Hebrews which failed, that the Second Israel consisted of Christians centered in America and which also failed, and that the Unification Church is the Third Israel. [https://history.familyfed.org/tf-sermons/unification-of-the-new-nation-1] Sun Myung Moon wrote: "The Unification Church has the role of restoring all of history. God has given me the authority to conduct that restoration, so I am responsible for Adam's realm, Noah's realm and Jacob's realm. Therefore, 36 couples were selected for the Blessing. By doing so, the tribe of the third Israel was created, surrounding the True Parents. This was the cornerstone of the third Israel." [https://www.unification.net/truelove/tl1-04.html] Sarah Witt served as the Director of Public Relations at the Unification Theological Seminary and she hosted a weekly radio program called "The Unification Hour". [https://history.familyfed.org/periodicals/mrs-sarah-m-witt-a-tribute]

## CAUSA and Liberty Lobby's lawyers

CAUSA's first executive director was Warren Richardson, who was the general counsel (chief legal officer) of the Liberty Lobby from 1969 to 1973. Richardson later tried to downplay his influence at the Liberty Lobby, but a _Washington Post_ article from 1981 said: [https://www.washingtonpost.com/archive/politics/1981/04/25/liberty-lobbys-ex-lawyer-ends-hhs-quest/02558bdf-4bad-450d-b59d-28964fa2058f/] > However, Warren Keller, a former Liberty Lobby official who worked there during Richardson's tenure, disputed this in a telephone interview yesterday. > Keller said Richardson appeared to him to have considerable authority - not as much as the organization's founder, Willis Carto, but perhaps as much as board chairman Curtis Dall. > Moreover, Keller said, Richardson "always sat in on editorial conferences and [sometimes] made suggestions" on what should go into publications. Mike Piper wrote that Mark Lane was "Carto and Liberty Lobby's primary attorney", so Lane basically inherited Richardson's old position. [https://archive.org/details/mcpbooks/Coup+d%27Etat+of+the+IHR+by+Michael+Collins+Piper/] Mike Piper frequently said that Mark Lane was an "anti-Zionist" Jew, but it might just mean that Lane was a communist Jew like his friend Ralph Schoenman, who was also described as an anti-Zionist. [https://books.google.com/books?id=M3ZJMYiNe0UC&pg=PA493] Both Schoenman and Lane were Jewish civil rights lawyers from Brooklyn who had a central role in the civil rights movement. Schoenman was Bertrand Russell's secretary, and Schoenman and Russell co-founded the British branch of Mark Lane's "Who Killed Kennedy Committee", and in the 60s Mark Lane lived in London in a large apartment which was owned by the Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation. [https://books.google.com/books?id=kmrn-n84bhsC&pg=PA162] Christopher Bollyn wrote: "Mark Lane took over the assets of the Liberty Lobby in or around 1993, when the lobby was on the verge of bankruptcy. This information came directly from L.T. Patterson, the publisher of Criminal Politics, who was sued by Lane in 1994 for some $10 million. Patterson was able to fend off Lane, a Zionist wolf in sheep's clothing, and learned that Lane owned the lobby during the legal process. When I asked Willis A. Carto if this was true, he swore at me on the phone and slammed down the receiver. Since my office at the lobby/newspaper was connected to Willis Carto's (from the summer of 2000) and having seen Lane, Carto, and Piper together on many occasions, I don't doubt for a minute that Patterson's information is true." [https://www.bollyn.com/the-liberty-lobbys-mark-lane-and-the-jonestown-massacre/] However Bollyn is not necessarily a reliable source, because he lived on a Zionist kibbutz in Israel, he married the Jew Bosmat Merimsky who Bollyn said worked for Israeli intelligence, his sister Karin Marta Bollyn married the Jew Michael Epstein, and in 2001 Bollyn's sister was listed as a new trustee of the Temple Solel synagogue in Arizona. [http://takeourworldback.com/bollynhufschmidmurdoch.htm, https://www.bollyn.com/the-law-of-the-jungle-the-jews/, http://www.takeourworldback.com/short/bollynisraeliwife.htm] I think Bollyn's sister is still a member of the synagogue as of 2022, because in 2022 they held a yahrzeit recitation for Bollyn's father Elbert. [https://container.parishesonline.com/bulletins/05/0257/20220501N.pdf] But it should make you even more suspicious of AFP that someone like Bollyn was AFP's star investigative reporter. Lawrence T. Patterson is not necessarily an impartial source either, because the reason why he was sued by Mark Lane was that after Willis Carto had been ousted out of the IHR, Patterson published several articles which were critical of Carto and which took the side of IHR's new management, including an article by Mark Weber titled "What Has Carto Done with Farrel Estate Millions?" [https://wac.monkey-factory.com/litigation/rico/19980129-rico.html] Mark Lane pointed out that Patterson's magazine _Criminal Politics_ was a competitor of Carto's magazine _The Spotlight_, so Lane claimed that Patterson attempted to defame Carto in order to win over Carto's subscriber base. [ibid.] However the claims of Bollyn and Patterson were also backed up by Eustace Mullins, because in 2006 on Daryl Bradford Smith's radio show, he said: "(9:14) Mark Lane was a boyfriend of Eleanor Roosevelt, and he's a well-known Jewish communist, and then he turns up as the editor of Carto's paper _The Spotlight_. And he ran the whole thing, and he ran it into the ground. [...] (16:30) Mark Lane should've been exposed years ago. But yeah, everybody knew that they had this Mark Lane, this Jew, was running the whole _Spotlight_ operation. Carto was just a front man." [http://web.archive.org/web/20100131101631/http://iamthewitness.com/mp3/DarylBradfordSmith_Eustace-Mullins-16Dec2006.mp3]

## Israel Monastery

Reverend Moon wrote that in 1945, he joined a Christian religious group which was called "Zion group" or "Israel Monastery": "When I was in southern Korea, in the year of Korea's liberation, I joined the Zion group, Kim Baek-moon's group [Israel Monastery], for six months." [https://howwelldoyouknowyourmoon.tumblr.com/post/172068747433/hak-ja-han-is-following-fathers-course-sun-myung] The theology of Unification Church may have been influenced by Kim Baek-moon who founded the Israel Monastery: "The Israel Monastery was ostracized from established Christianity because of its tendency toward mysticism. Its leader, Baek-moon Kim, wrote _Theology of the Holy Spirit and The Fundamental Principle of Christianity_, in which he espouses a unique interpretation of the Bible. Some say that the roots of Unification Church doctrine Exposition of the Divine Principle (Exposition) come from him. The Unification Church rejects such claims." [https://history.familyfed.org/hyung-jin-moon-1/founders-of-korean-religions-koreas-unification-church-spreads-out-to-the-world] In the book _Change of Blood Lineage through Ritual Sex in the Unification Church_, Kirsti Nevalainen wrote that Israel Monastery was actually a branch of a North Korean Christian group called Wilderness Church, and that the leader of Wilderness Church claimed that she was the wife of Yahweh, and that she and her husband were the richest people in Pyongyang according to Moon: [https://tragedyofthesixmarys.com/moon-theology-fall-tamar-jesus-mary/] > In the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s there were many Christian-related messianic groups in Korea. One of these groups was led by a woman called Pak Wol-yong. ... Pak Wol-yong lived about 8 km away from Pyongyang, the capital city of North Korea. She was born in 1892 and married to a Han who was an influential person in Pyongyang. Around 1945 Pak Wol-yong began to claim to her followers that she was the wife of Jehovah (Yahweh). She said she had sex with God and received a new spiritual body from God through their sexual intercourse. So she became divine, and God's spouse in flesh - a goddess incarnated. > [...] > In Pyongyang Rev. Moon met Pak Wol-yong and arrived at her place on June 4th 1946. Ms. Pak was leading a messianic group, called Kwang-ya Kyohoe (the "Wilderness Church"). The Israel Monastery, led by Kim Baek-moon, was in reality a branch of Kwang-ya Kyohoe. So Kim Baek-moon knew Pak Wol-yong. The church did not have official buildings and members met out in the open, or in private homes. > Rev. Moon decided to stay in Ms. Pak's spiritual group in Pyongyang. He was serving and obeying her completely, even taking care of her laundry. Rev. Moon's work under her lasted longer than his previous work with Kim Baek-moon in the Israel Monastery. Rev. Moon's work under her came to an end sometime in mid 1947, when she refused to accept his declaration that she should obey him from then on. Rev. Moon required that Ms. Pak quit her position as a leader of her messianic group and surrender her position to Rev. Moon. Ms. Pak and her family were wealthy people, and Rev. Moon wanted to use her house as his base for mission work. According to Rev. Moon, Ms. Pak Wol-yong and her husband Han were the richest people in Pyongyang. However Moon himself said about Ms. Pak: "Her husband, whose surname was Han, was a very influential person, locally. They had ten sons who were really quite awful. He was one of the richest men in Pyongyang, and she lived in his home as his secondary wife." [https://howwelldoyouknowyourmoon.tumblr.com/post/172068747433/hak-ja-han-is-following-fathers-course-sun-myung] So maybe Mr. and Ms. Pak were just among the richest people in Pyongyang and not the number one richest people.
