Website Resources


Quotation Marks. I provide the following links because I think they may have some value and interest to visitors to my website. The inclusion of a link on this page in no way represents my endorsement of the entire website to which you will be taken or of the person or groups sponsoring the Website. There may well be content (past, present, and future) on the linked website that I oppose. Naturally, I have no control over the content of other websites and no control over links placed on those websites to other sites.

The inclusion of a resource on this page is no indication of any affiliation between the listed website and me. Before constructing these pages, I faced the dilemma of directing people to resources (e.g., websites and books) that might prove valuable to them, versus withholding this information in the interest of shielding myself from accusations of being affiliated with these resources or being in agreement with all of their statements and actions.

As you can see by the existence of this page, I chose to err in the direction of helping people who are searching for more information. I trust that those who attempt to misrepresent my work will be confronted with the above clarification and that my listing these resources will be considered in the proper context and not be misconstrued.

Programming, Brainwashing, and Indoctrination

The Children's Rights Institute

The mission of The Children's Rights Institute is to raise awareness about and legally combat violations of children’s basic human rights as occurring throughout the globe. CRI has a special focus on the incitement and recruitment of children to become suicide bombers, child soldiers and child shields.

As I discuss in Chapter 7 of Divorce Poison, the existence of child terrorist suicide bombers is an extreme example and strong testament to children’s susceptibility to adult influence in developing hatred toward others.

A shocking demonstration of the indoctrination of a 3½-year-old Arab girl to hate Jews. This video is perhaps the most effective rebuttal to those who deny the possibility that children can be brainwashed into hatred. Watch

U.S. Department of State, National Passport Information Center

If you fear that your child might be taken abducted and taken abroad, you can place your child’s name in The Children’s Passport Issuance Alert Program. If an application is received, you will be informed before the passport is issued. The Department’s Passport Lookout System gives all U.S. passport agencies as well as U.S. embassies and consulates abroad an alert on a child’s name if a parent or guardian registers an objection to passport issuance for his or her child.  This procedure provides parents advance warning of possible plans for international travel with the child.
