|Cohen, we think.|
Naomi Isaacson is the president of Yehud-Monosson and CEO of SIST, which is apparently some kind of fundamentalist Zionist cult (full name Dr. R.C. Samanta Roy Institute of Science and Technology Inc. and officially an educational non-profit). Avraham Cohen, a.k.a. R.C. Samanta Roy, founded the cult in the seventies as a Christian end-times group – apparently the move to Judaism was somewhat gradual. And he managed to build quite a bit of fortune for himself – like many cult leaders Cohen claimed God-given abilities to read people’s minds, predict their futures, and heal their diseases – until the whole thing seems to have fallen apart in a flurry of bankruptcy claims and foreclosures around 2010 (more detailed story here and here).
It was Naomi Isaacson, however, who managed to draw some national attention when she and her attorney, cult member Rebekah Nett, filed a marvelously deranged brief with a bankruptcy court in 2011 (related to the SIST troubles, of course) in which they called U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Nancy Dreher, a “black-robed bigot”, another judge “a Jesuitess” with a “track record of lies, deceit, treachery and connivery” and both, together with some trustees, “dirty Catholics”. They also alleged that the courts were “composed of a bunch of ignoramus, bigoted Catholic beasts that carry the sword of the church.” Meanwhile, Isaacson said, the “things that this Debtor has gone through are worse than the Inquisition, the Holocaust, and blood libels,” and “[s]ince Debtor has been vocal in exposing their dirty deeds, these dirty Catholics have conspired together to hurt Debtor.” Suffice to say, those sort of antics don’t go over particularly well with courts, who ordered Isaacson and Nett to show cause why each shouldn’t be fined up to $10,000. You can follow the link above if you need some actual details of the case, but we don’t think that’s necessary to make a judgment about Isaacson and Nett.
Nett, who apparently grew up in the cult, later had her license revoked indefinitely for her behavior by the Minnesota Supreme Court for repeatedly making “frivolous and harassing personal attacks and discriminatory statements in 11 different pleadings in five distinct matters.”
Isaacson and Nett emphasized, in their response, that they weren’t caling Dreher a member of the Roman Catholic Church when they called her a Catholic judge; rather, they were “referring to a mentality and an adherence to a universal creed of White Supremacy,” pointing out, for good measure, that Catholics and the Jesuit order were behind the slave trade, the sinking of the Titanic, World War II, the Holocaust and U.S. involvement in the war in Vietnam.
Diagnosis: I suppose some might feel sorry for them, but these people are deranged, evil and dangerous. Avoid, at least unless you have some expertise in how to help people escape from this kind of thing.
