Hat tip to Eliyahu m'Tsiyon Emet m'Tsiyon for pointing this article out to me.

"President Roosevelt said of the peace advocates in his time: 'I do not charge these American citizens with being foreign agents. But I do charge them with doing exactly the kind of work that the dictators want done in the United States.'27

In fact, we note that the Peace Now Committee, like other peace organizations, was tied to German agents. An investigation on behalf of a congressional committee found that a man by the name of John Collett had inspired the founding of the Peace Now Committee.28 Professor Hartmann reported the same thing.29

It seems likely therefore that Collett invented or proposed the name 'Peace Now.' It ought to be pointed out that Collett was a Norwegian. He had left his country in 1940, several months after the German conquest. He carried a passport issued by the notorious pro-Nazi Quisling regime, at a time when Axis states did not simply issue passports to whoever asked for one. Collett arrived in the United States through Japan (before US entry into the war). The congressional investigating committee's report identified Collett as the 'leading spirit' in organizing the Peace Now group (founded in 1942).30

The secretary of the Peace Now Committee (Bessie Simon) had ties with pro-Nazi propagandists who worked in the United States, as well as ties with the America First Committee (which dissolved itself not long after US entry into the war).31

In the light of this background, it might seem to many that Collett was sent by the Nazis to organize opposition to American intervention against Germany in the war."
