(WMR) -- The Unification Church,
the global enterprise of South Korean Rev. Sun Myung Moon (born Yong Myung
Moon), may be attempting to take control of the United Nations through the
all-but-certain election of South Korean Foreign Minister Ban Ki-moon as UN
Moon is slated to be formally elected Secretary General on October 9 by the UN
Security Council. Moon has already won four straw polls by the UN Security
Council and is now considered a shoo-in to replace Kofi Annan.
Some informed UN
sources are concerned that Moon lists his religious affiliation as
"non-denominational Christian," a code word often used by the
"Moonies" for the Unification Church.
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and UN ambassador John Bolton are
attempting to have former Washington Times editor Josette Sheeran Shiner
become the next Executive Director of the World Food Program. Sheeran Shiner is
a member of Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church. The term of the World Food
Program Executive Director is five years. Shiner is currently the Under
Secretary of State for Economic, Business and Agricultural Affairs.
Although Ban Ki-moon and Sun Myung Moon are not related,
some UN members may sense that there is something amiss about the Bush
administration's strong support for the South Korean Foreign Minister, given
the close links between some Bush officials and the "Moonies." There
were a few "discourage" and "no opinion" ballots cast by
Security Council members on Ban Ki-moon.
Although the balloting is secret, it is believed that France
and the United Kingdom are not thrilled with the Moon nomination and that
Japan, a non-permanent member that holds the Security Council presidency for
October, is also reportedly opposed to Moon.
Ban Ki-moon has lived in the United States for a number of
years, having gone to graduate school at Harvard and serving two tours at South
Korea's Washington embassy, a diplomatic mission that maintains close contacts
with the Sun Myung Moon organization in Washington, DC. The Unification Church,
in addition to owning the Washington Times, also owns United Press
Sun Mying Moon, who was excommunicated by the Korean
Presbyterian church for preaching heresy, claims he is the Messiah and intends
to take control of the world.
The South Korean government, which has close ties with Sun
Myung Moon's organization, has used its considerable public relations machinery
to convince the Security Council members to elect Ban Ki-moon as the next
Secretary General. Only a veto by one of the four other permanent members --
France, United Kingdom, Russia, or China -- can derail the possibility of a
Unification Church ally from becoming the next UN Secretary General.
