Rev. Dr. David Hart, a retired Anglican Priest, commented during an address commemorating the second Anniversary of Father Moon's passing, that to him, Sun Myung Moon was like Jesus calling humankind to realign their faith to deal with current challenges informed by personal inner experience of the living God.
Keith 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."
I 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.

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.
