Chung Hwan Kwak and George W. Bush

Chung Hwan Kwak george Bush dick Cheney Sun myung moon One of the top leaders of the Unification movement who has not been given enough attention on this blog is Sun Myung Moon's right hand man, Chung Hwan Kwak. John Gorenfeld has a revealing post on the ruthless Svengeli. Like Moon, Kwak is an unrepentant anti-Semite whose theodicy of the Holocaust holds that the victims had nobody to blame but themselves. The post also gives the details of how Kwak dealt with Moon's previous top aide Bo Hi Pak: Kwak set up Pak for a brutal ritual beating from "the Black Heung Jin Nim," a Zimbabwean named Cleophas whom Moonies claimed to be the channel for the spirit of Moon's deceased son.

Members of the Bush family have assiduously avoided being photographed with the politically radioactive Moon but they have allowed themselves to be photographed with Moon's closest surrogates. The post includes a photo of Kwak with Bush, Cheney and their wives. Will the mainstream media report on this? Don't hold your breath.

I was a member of Moon's Unification Church from 1976 to 1986. During that time it was Bo Hi Pak who appeared to be Moon's second in command. He was certainly more popular with ordinary members than Chung Hwan Kwak. He spoke fairly good English, used American idioms and was a dynamic translator for Moon. Kwak, on the other hand, required a translator himself, and was long-winded and dull, though from what I remember, he seemed like a good-natured grandfather whose favorite topic was "the Blessing" (Unification-style marriage). Obviously, appearances can be deceiving. Has anyone investigated whether Kwak had anything to do with Pak's kidnapping in the mid-1980s (when he was held for ransom by some Korean men), a weird plot that was broken up by the FBI?

The anonymous comment seemed to imply that since the horrendous events surrounding the fake Heung Jin Moon occurred 20 years ago, they are no longer of interest. However, the whole point of Gorenfeld's post is that the man who secretly organized these events in order to take down his rival has recently been photographed rubbing shoulders with the current President and Vice President of the United States. So that's very relevant to current events.
