Keith Bennett on the Relationship of Father Moon and North Korea
Written by Robin Marsh   
Saturday, 23 August 2014 06:04

Keith BennettKeith Bennett has tried to understand the relationship of Father Moon with North Korea. He has visited North Korea regularly since 1983. He has many friends there. He loves the Korean people and thinks they are blessed with the finest qualities of human nature. He feels the Korean peninsula is unsurpassed in its physical beauty.

As a regular visitor to North Korea I have been able to see with my own eyes something of the surface of this work. Things like the Potokang hotel that was renovated by Rev Moon and maintained by the Unification Movement. The Peace and Convention Centre in front of the Potokang Hotel.  The Billboards of the Peace Motors is the only non-political advertising in all of North Korea.

He knew that Father Moon was ideologically opposed to North Korea. He knew of the two times that Father Moon had been imprisoned in North Korea. He was very surprised in 1991 by the ground breaking visit of an arch enemy of NK to meet President Kim Il Sung. At that time there was no North Korean mission in the UK so he called his friend in the North Korean Mission in Paris. His friend seemed to be as surprised by the news as he was. His friend explained that as Korean people get old they think more about their native place and he felt Rev Moon would not be an exception.

Ahmed Shebani - Father Moon's Ascension 2nd Anniversary
Written by Robin Marsh   
Friday, 22 August 2014 17:47

Ahmed ShebaniI want to start with a reference to a verse in the Koran. Chapter 6 verse 32 ‘God tells us whoever revives the soul of a human being, it is as if he has revived all of humanity. Whoever kills the soul of a human being, it is as if he has killed all of humanity.’

Two verses of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) ‘Whoever removes the obstacle from the path does an act of charity.’  

‘A person in the life after his work has not finished through three channels. If a child prays for him. An educational institution that he left behind. A charitable institution and good deeds that he left behind.’  His Holiness, the late Father Moon has subscribed to all three good virtues I just mentioned.

ONE GLOBAL HUMAN FAMILY BUILT ON LOVE, PEACE & UNITY

By Justina Mutale

African Woman of the Year 2012 and UPF Ambassador for Peace

2nd Anniversary of the Ascension of Father Sun Myung Moon

Founder of the Universal Peace Federation

Lancaster Gate, London, Saturday 16th August 2014


Each time I switch on the television in the past few months, I am greeted with horrifying images of war - images of humans killing other humans. Humans fleeing war waged by fellow humans; humans dying from gunfire or bombs dropped by fellow humans; humans dying of hunger, poverty, dehydration, lack of water, lack of food, lack of shelter - all caused by fellow humans. Humans fleeing their homes or being chased out of their homes by other humans; humans becoming refugees in their own homes and in their own countries; humans trying to flee to neighbouring countries for safety, from fellow humans.
