“They have so many different names,” Meshulam said. “Anyone who’s dishonest must wear many masks.”
He added that he knows the Scientology movement in Israel possesses files on 30 thousand Israeli citizens. These are all individuals who walked in and took the questionnaire, with a lie detector test.
In 2011, on their anniversary, Meshulam’s wife joined the Scientology staff, he related. She signed a contract to study for free at the center for three years, and then she will give seven years of service in return.
“She was swallowed up in there,” he said.
In early 2012 they divorced. But he said that he and his children were committed to getting their mother back, despite everything.
The Scientology Center responded to the IDF Radio show with the following statement: “Erez Meshulam has been voicing his recycled claims for a long time in various means of communication. The Scientology Organization prefers not to mix in the private matters of its members, in this case a divorce. And it certainly is not prepared to expose these private matters, unlike Meshulam, who is cynically using his divorce. We respect our members’ privacy. Calling Scientology a cult is complete ignorance, Scientology is the opposite of a cult. Scientology has no secret rites and no hidden agendas. All of Scientology’s activities are completely transparent and are conducted decently and legally. Scientology respects every religion and objects to every attempt at religious conversion. Scientology is a social organization, recognized in almost every country in the world, whose goals are a war against drugs and violence, guarding human rights, helping individuals and society, help in times of national crisis, etc. In Israel, Scientology is officially recognized as a public benefit company, and all the organization’s activities are to benefit society and individuals. The opening of the new center in Jaffa is welcomed by many of the local elements.”
