“Don’t Touch The Children”

On April 23 of 2014 the United Nations granted special consultative status at the Economic and Social Council of the UN (ECOSOC) to the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction.

It is held that this status gives the Kinsey Institute an important voice in global public policy. However, it is also held that the UN failed to examine either the scientific basis for the Kinsey Institute’s most fundamental research, nor to address its involvement in the criminal sexual abuse of infants and children.

American scholar dr. Judith Reisman and British journalist, filmmaker and long-standing researcher into the works of Alfred Kinsey and the Kinsey Institute Timothy Tate were present with Croatian journalist Karolina Vidovic-Kristo at the press conference at Zagreb airport on Monday 26 May 2014 to mark the launch of the Croatian citizens initiative for the global campaign “Don’t Touch The Children”. Timothy Tate, in the video release of the press conference embedded in this article below, said:

Last month the UN, an organisation founded on and dedicated to human rights, granted to the Kinsey Institute the status of official accreditation. Why does that matter? It matters because it gives the Kinsey Institute official recognition and a seat at the table where policy, global policy is made; policy about the law, policy about sex, policy above all about the children.

Why is it wrong for Kinsey to be there?

Because this is an organisation founded on crimes. Founded on crimes against the most vulnerable in society – the children. It’s an organisation, which has refused to apologise for or to walk away from its crimes. And it’s an organisation, which continues to make money from the reports of those crimes. How can the most important human rights organisation in the world allow an institute founded on the crimes, founded on the pain and the tears of hundreds of children, how can it be granted the honour, the importance and the power of accreditation.

Today, here in Croatia, we’re beginning a campaign to demand that the UN re-examines its decision to grant that accreditation.

Why Croatia?

Because this country alone in the world for the first time in 70 years last year stood up to the power of the Kinsey Institute. No other country has ever taken a stand against Kinsey. You did it. That is why this resolution, this initiative starts here.

I hope over the next few days Croatia’s voice will ring out across the world. And it will be heard I hope, by those in the UN who made that decision to grant the Kinsey Institute that accreditation. But over the coming days you may hear allegations that this campaign is not about the protection of the children, or about the UN or about the Kinsey Institute, you may hear allegations and claims that it’s a campaign of homophobia, it’s a campaign by right-wing people or religious activists. Those allegations are lies. I have no religion, I have been and remained a left-wing socialist and for more than almost forty years I have campaigned for equal rights for gay and straight people. This campaign in this brave country is about demanding change. It’s about demanding that the world’s most vital, most important human rights organisation holds an inquiry into the Kinsey Institute and the crimes it committed and those that continue to profit from and above all it’s a campaign for the children abused by the Kinsey’s pedophiles and for the victims of child sexual abuse everywhere. It starts today and it starts here.”

Dr. Judith Reisman, for this occasion, led a prayer in Zagreb 27 May: “Let us pray, for and the victims, the children and the infants who were abused by Kinsey and his associates for the purpose of so called science, for initiating and conducting a fair criminal procedure against Kinsey’s institute and true facts about the Kinsey Institute and its influence on sex education, to be revealed to the public for the presidents of 192 UN member states to be wise and bold when they receive the resolution, which will be sent from this place for the Kinsey Institute to be expelled from the UN membership, to be closed and its so-called science to be declared null and void, for the current so-called sex education to be abolished in Croatia and globally”. After the prayers the Judith Reisman Resolution was read out and it states:
“All of us, citizens of the world,
all of us, regardless of the age, nationality, ideology, faith, colour of the skin, political option, regardless of all the rest – we stand united against the criminal act of pedophilia.

We therefore address you, the presidents of the world states member countries and leaders of the UN:
Ban the Kinsey Institute from the UN.

The Kinsey Institute and its founder Alfred Kinsey incited and paid pedophiles to abuse children. All this has been proved, yet never prosecuted and no one has ever been sentenced.

The Institute, which along with its activities abused children and infants must be investigated, prosecuted and sentenced; it must not be a member of any human organization whose imperative is the welfare of man.

According to its own charter and respecting the general human need for protection of children and processing the criminal acts we appeal to the UN to ban the Kinsey Institute from its membership.

To this resolution we enclose the evidence (PDF) of monstruous acts of Alfred Kinsey and the Kinsey Institute and encourage the UN to initiate also the legal prosecution of the Kinsey Institute according to its authority”.



Croatia, with its distinguished journalist and recipient of the Howard Center/World Congress of Families Global Leadership Award Karolina Vidovic – Kristo has in this “Don’t Touch The Children” campaign become the leader of the global movement against the Kinsey Institute.

One cannot but marvel at Vidovic-Kristo’s tenacity and steadfastness in her path to contribute to the global endeavours to protect the children from being exposed in schools to teachings that are based on the work of Alfred Kinsey; the research work that evidently sexually abused children and infants. For her determination to show the Croatian public the truth about the research done by Kinsey and his associates she has suffered greatly, to say the least her popular TV show “Portraits of Croatia” was axed in 2013 after she presented the truth about Kinsey and was suspended from her job on Croatian government controlled TV station HRT. Not one to be easily intimidated (as it should be with all who fight the good fight for human rights), she kept up with her work in exposing Kinsey’s work and, indeed, her claims that Croatia’s school sex education program was based on Kinsey’s research and pedophilia. The sex education program (mind you, Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic sat on the curriculum board!) divided the nation in 2013 and eventually the Constitutional court abolished in May 2013 the sex education program as it stood. It was back to the drawing board on the sex education program, but not far enough as traits of and persons associated with Kinsey’s research still linger in the realm of sex education. Saturday 28 June, the Croatian portal Dnevno reported that Croatian HRT TV had banned Vidovic-Kristo from giving or speaking out her personal views and opinions in public! At the beginning of June, Vidovic-Kristo was filmed for a talk-back private TV Show “Visible Traces” in which she appeared as a private person, a mother – talking about Kinsey and sex education and the need for the protection of children, but Croatia’s HRTV made moves to place an injunction against the televising of the show; the show was nevertheless televised in last week of June.


Croatian HRT television is funded by the taxpayers of Croatia, both through the state budget and from monthly citizen subscription fees and since it seems to be a law unto itself (communist leaning, to boot) I hope a new citizens’ action arises that will see to a change of the station’s leadership and freedom of speech and truth. Croatia at this moment seems to be a place where journalists are ostracized, suspended, gagged, threatened…if they dare to speak some truths and express concerns which touch the nation or a great deal of the community, when that truth does not agree with those in power.

The “Don’t Touch The Children” campaign seems to me a most worthy global campaign for children everywhere are abused and/or exposed to education programs that could easily be construed as some kind of grooming, be it succinct, indirect or direct, of future pedophiles, sexual abusers and predators; weakening defense mechanisms against abuse and thereby setting a stage for victims of the future. Indeed, not only journalists but all of us have a civic duty in ensuring that our children are protected from that which endangers their moral and physical well-being and with which their developing minds cannot fully deal.

It’s up to all of us, around the globe, to make a difference in our children’s, our grandchildren’s future and the least we can do as citizens of the world is to write to our countries’ Presidents or Prime Ministers and inquire as to what they intend to do about the UN’s decision to grant accreditation to the Kinsey Institute.

Pursuing UN objectivity – Stop Vuk Jeremic Steal What Rightfully Belongs to the Victims of War Crimes Worldwide

Vecernji List 24 February 2013

Vecernji List 24 February 2013

While only representatives of member countries of the United Nations (UN) – and not individual citizens – can make representations, put forth proposals etc. in the UN, at the end of the day every UN representative sitting there is there because ordinary citizens, like you or I, have voted at general elections in the countries we live in. Hence, you and I have an absolute right and responsibility to become involved with the work of the UN, albeit through the will of our parliamentarians.

For some months now, we have been informed that the current President of UN General Assembly, Vuk Jeremic, a citizen of Serbia, is planning on convening a thematic debate in the UN, on 10 April 2013, on the “Role of International Criminal Justice on Reconciliation”. Last week he has published a communiqué on the event (Please click on this link to read the communiqué and details for the debate).

In the Concept Note attached to Jeremic’s communiqué, he states: “we must be vigilant to ensure that international criminal justice serves in the best way its purpose. Operate within a neutral and impartial framework, and achieve its goals in a sustainable manner”.

While I personally believe that such a debate is a positive thing, especially because it seems that it will encompass (if not directly then indirectly) justice delivered through the tribunals regarding all countries that have been involved with UN International Tribunals of some kind, in the period after Nuremberg trials post-WWII  (e.g. Cambodia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, East Timor, Lebanon, Serbia, Sierra Leone, Rwanda…), indications are overwhelmingly against objectivity of such a debate if it puts forth at the lectern speakers who are not neutral and impartial in the issue of the debate.  Jeremic himself, a citizen of Serbia, speaks of “neutrality and impartiality” and yet he has shown no human decency to distance himself from leading this debate. Furthermore reconciliation and issues around it are set to be a focal point of the debate. Given all this, justice for humanity would tell us that victims of those horrid crimes are the ones who factor most highly in whether justice of the tribunals has or will steer reconciliation, and how.

Hence, as a subscriber to democracy and complete justice I was personally horrified in finding out that this UN debate will be convened, with the opening address delivered by a citizen of one of the countries involved with the very war crimes before the International Criminal Tribunal, Vuk Jeremic from Serbia. My horror had deepened to an even more unimaginable and insufferable level when I read in the media recently (from Serbia) that Serbia’s President Tomislav Nikolic (who was personally involved in Serbia’s politics of aggression and ethnic cleansing during early 1990’s on the territory of the Former Yugoslavia) is under consideration to deliver a keynote speech at the debate.   

My horror does not arise from any strong feelings I may, or may not have regarding the war in Croatia and the fact that the International Criminal Tribunal has already convicted Serbs of joint criminal enterprise against Croatian civilians, people and property. My feelings of horror arise from the fact that, even today, in the 21st century, the UN does not seem capable of organising such an important debate in a completely objective manner, ensuring that any role played during the debate (e.g. keynote speaking, opening statements) does not contaminate the victims’ rights to real and perceived objectivity. Indeed, the only way this can be achieved is to ensure that representatives of the countries where war crimes had occurred do not stand at the lectern and keynote speak to the participants. They can certainly participate in debates, as any other country can.

In my opinion, and I am certain in the opinion of many, the UN should appoint an independent coordinator and group (representatives from countries untainted by the very crimes and justice the debate is addressing) to facilitate and keynote speak for this event.

So, what do we do as citizens of the world? We quick smart write to our Prime Ministers, Presidents …the Opposition Leaders, or our local Member of Parliament or Congressman/Congresswoman… and ask that your country takes up the issue with the UN in ensuring the debate on 10 April 2013 is completely objective and, above all, fair to the multitudes of victims across the world whose wounds would undoubtedly be split wide open the instant a keynote speech or opening addresses are uttered by representatives from “involved-in-crime” countries.

There is no successful or long lasting reconciliation like the one that puts the rights and the feelings of victims up front.

I have personally written to the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition in Australia such a letter. The more people write the better – wherever you are. So get going please, write your letter. Please contact me if you need to see a sample letter.

I was pleasantly surprised to discover today that Croatian journalist Jadranka Juresko-Kero had written an article about my letter to the Australian Prime Minister and Leader of the Opposition and that Vecernji List newspaper has published an article on these efforts of mine to ensure complete respect of victims of war crimes through the UN debate.

It is through such personal actions, by writing to our governments, that we may make a positive and meaningful difference in the lives and rights of victims of war crimes. To evidence this I am at this moment unpleasantly reminded of the Serbian Orthodox New Year concert at the UN General Assembly, beginning of January 2013, when Vuk Jeremic, served upon the UN a diplomatic prank that offended so many victims of the 1990’s war in Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.  The performance in the UN hall of the Serbian song “March on Drina”, which Serb aggressors hummed and chanted and sang as they went about killing innocent people and ethnically cleansing non-Serb population during 1990’s would have remained just a performance for entertainment had groups and organisations representing the victims not reacted immediately. UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon had no option but to apologise and express regret to the victims.

But the apology and the regret came too late. The victims had already been wounded. Let’s not allow a similar thing happening again at the very altar of human justice and humanity – at the UN, on 10th April.

As far as Croatia’s participation in this debate is concerned, it would seem that there are two main strands of opinion at this stage and in the corridors of political echelons.  One strand of thought is that the event be ignored in certain ways and to act, in parallel, with the so-called quiet diplomacy because “the loser has the right to feel angry, nothing else remains for him/her and Croatia has won in the ICTY, Hague”.  The other strand of thought is to be “loud”, that is, that Croatia sends an important or high-ranking politician such as the Minister of Justice, of Foreign Affairs or a President’s envoy who would, alongside other representatives of Croatian diplomacy, deliver the message to the UN that Croatia is a country which has cooperated with the work of the International Criminal Tribunal and throughout its court processes and that it has confirmed its innocence as well as the innocence of Croatian Generals, who had endured a very long Hague Calvary.

After the Croatian Generals Ante Gotovina and Mladen Markac returned home to Croatia (16 November 2012) from The Hague, free and acquitted of war crimes including joint criminal enterprise, Vuk Jeremic began “threatening”, from his UN position as President of UN General Assembly, that he was embittered by the ICTY verdict and that he would call for a meeting where “the truth will emerge”. There is no doubt in my mind that with such a style of manipulation Jeremic wanted to send a message to Serbia and to the Serbian diaspora that he has used his influence and position in the UN to initiate a meeting with the “symbolic” date of 10th April. Of course, knowing that 10th April (1941) is the date that signifies the founding of the World War II Independent State of Croatia – there is no doubt that Jeremic has once again “pulled a dirty” on the UN and its member states, just as he did at the Orthodox New Year’s concert.

Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Lebanon, Cambodia, Rwanda … all should enter this debate in the UN on equal footing and that can only be achieved that no keynote speakers, no opening or otherwise formally pivotal speakers come from any of these countries.
The debate will remain as an official documentary record for those who will write the history tomorrow. That is why that debate is important and why it is good that Serbia has found itself at this time in the function of presiding over the General Assembly and, hence, gained an opportunity to reply to that which has de facto been messaged to it by the decisions of the ICTY Appeal Chambers  – and that is, that only one guilty side exists, and only one criminal side and that that side is Serbian, said Vuk Jeremic to journalists in the UN.

Why the UN even permits Jeremic to advocate primarily for his country’s interests at the UN general debate, which will encompass several countries on issues of reconciliation and International Criminal Tribunal justice, is mind-boggling and profoundly distressing.
Surely, there are member states of the UN that can prevent such travesty of UN global interest and role in the issues to be debated! But I honestly believe that the receipt of letters from their own citizens will help further the cause – so, grab your pen, keyboard … write that letter this week!
