Small Guatemalan Town Uses Nazi-Esque Tactics to Expel Jews
INN ^ | 5/28/2014, 4:00 PM | Tova Dvorin

As an Anti-Defamation League (ADL) poll revealed earlier this month demonstrated, anti-Semitism is a worldwide phenomenon.

And while a focus on anti-Semitism has cropped up in Europe and in the Middle East, at least one group of Jews in Guatemala were brave enough to speak of their own plight in the Central American press.

Over thirty Jews are being expelled from San Juan La Laguna, a small Guatemalan town—all at the express request of the locals. …

Just in casual chatting with people from Latin America, I am stunned by how deep and pervasive anti-Semitism seems to be there.

I’m just kind of surprised that there would even be 30 jews in a small Guatemalan town. Is Boca getting too crowded or what?

And they are very Catholic down there. Don’t they know that Vatican is against this crap? Do the local Bishops and Priests not spread the churches position on it?

I´ve been to San Juan on Lake Atitlan. I don´t believe this report AT ALL. Guatemalans are the most PRO Zion People in the Western Hemisphere, it was a Guatemalteca citizen who helped write the Balfour Declaration in the UN giving Statehood to Israel. Taint so. No one in San Juan is asking Jewish people to leave. Hell will freeze over before this happens.

Where are these poor people going? Not the USA I hope, which is developing it’s own European-style anti-Semitism due to the academia. I hope they all find safe haven in Israel.

Truthfully, I suggest they leave well before the deadline. In recent years, the Guatemalans at time have behaved in almost medieval fashion, with mobs hysterically lynching people after someone calls them a witch; and there were even incidents where American tourists were attacked because someone claimed they were there to steal babies.

There have even been regional fights in recent years between Catholics and Protestants. The place is unstable.

The two important things are that they were spontaneous, and they were deadly.

An individual, or even a small group of Jews could be set upon by a mob with little or no warning, and just as likely at noon in the marketplace as at night. The mob might go to their home and burn it down, killing anyone who flees the fire.

Fair warning. Get out now.

Currently suspended for some reason, there was a website called La Voz de Aztlan, that was just frothing with antisemitism. Delusional, paranoid ravings. Anti-Yankee, but they even made a lot of the middle east radical imams look saner on the subject of Jews.

And before answering any of those ads to move to Belize...

Guatemala has long laid claim to much if not all of Belize. They have maps showing it as part of their country. And whenever the latest tinpot government down there gets into trouble they start agitating the masses to go and retake their “stolen lands” to the East.

He allowed Himself to be killed. It was always the plan to die from the day he was born.

There’s a Nazi-esque social environment from our southern border down through South America. Has to do with religion and southern European culture.

it was a Guatemalteca citizen who helped write the Balfour Declaration in the UN giving Statehood to Israel.

The Balfour Declaration was adopted by the British government on November 2, 1917, decades before the UN or the current State of Israel existed.

The Pope could have fooled me during his visit to Israel.

I thought you guys were over that.

Anyway, neither of the two Herods was Jewish, nor Pilate.

The Herods were practicing Jews. Their family had converted in the 2nd century BC, when the Hasmoneans forced the Idumeans to convert.

Many if not most of the Jews did not accept them as Jews, to be sure, but that was pretty much a distortion of Jewish doctrine, which had generally accepted converts as Jews.

Such as: the vast mixed crowd at the Exodus, Zipporah, Rahab, Ruth, Uriah the Hittite, etc.

“The Herods were practicing Jews”

Hahahaha.

Orthodox converts are Jewish, just as much as I am. Such is not the issue.

The Herods did not have a valid conversions, did not observe the Law, and were not Jews.

I never said they were good Jews, only that they and those around them considered them to be Jews.

Even Herod the Great apparently observed at least some of the Law, as Augustus famously observed by Greek pun that it was better to be Herod’s pig than his son, after one of the intrafamily Herodian bloodbaths.

I also believe some of the later Herods, notably Agrippa I, were considered Jews, and even good Jews, by even the strictest. Josephus and the Talmud certainly speak highly of them.

Arippa had a Jewish mother.

It is well-document that the first Herods had an invalid conversion, the second had no conversion at all, and both did nothing more than pretend to keep the law (note your comment about his keeping of pigs — not sure if that was literal, but I bet it was), and neither was born a Jew.

I think you are right about Guatamela, and there is a tendency to bloodshed which is roused for almost any reason - there also has been a wave of sadistic/sexual killings of women.

However, about this particular group - they themselves are evidently not normal people. If they were normal, they wouldn’t suddenly be relocating to a Mayan town in Central America.

Apparently, these are members of a group called Lev Tahor. Some say it is a cult, and also some even dispute if they are really Jewish. I don’t know - I had never heard of them until now. However, I quickly found out that they had been in the US, but moved on after trouble with the law, were in Israel, but moved on after disputes with the Rabbical authorities, were in Canada, but moved after disputes with the child welfare system. Hmmmm ....
