Guatemala: ultraortodoxos Jews forced to abandon village

The 230 members of the community began on Friday to abandon the village of San Juan La Laguna, situated on the Bank of a lake.

"This attitude against us, we are accused of things we haven't done. Legally, as Guatemalans, which is most, and foreigners have the right to live wherever we want. We must respect the law of the country, "said Misael Santos, the spokesman for the group.

"We don't want another Jewish Holocaust. It is for this reason that we leave this way, quickly and without thinking much about it, but it's very sad. In my case I've lived here for seven years, "said Ingrid Santos, a member of the community.

The decision was taken by the Council of elders of the village, after being rebuffed attempts at understanding with the Jewish ultraortodoxo group whose members have been accused of mistreating locals and tourists.

At the root of disputes is the arrogance and the fact that they pay the who understood not price marked on the goods.

Among the members of the Jewish community are Canadians recently arrived, allegedly involved in cases of child abuse in his country.
