Israeli police in Jerusalem say they have uncovered a messianic Jewish sect that prostituted women to "save Israel," the AP website reports today (September 7, 2014).
In a statement today, police said officers arrested four people on suspicion of coercing women into having sex with non-Jews and exploited them sexually by making them addicted to drugs and alcohol. The reasoning behind the plot was "to save the people of Israel and bring redemption nearer."
The four suspects -- two men and two women -- were part of a messianic sect.
A four-month-long investigation revealed the four were brainwashing the women into believing they were helping the Jewish people by having sex with non-Jews, while pocketing the money earned from the women for themselves.
