Ruins Of Mayan Massive Ancient City Discovered In Guatemala

Put you finger on Guatemala on a Globe and draw an imaginary line through the center of the Earth to the other side.

If memory serves, that puts you well into the Indian Ocean.

Coincidence?

      Guatemala trasladará su embajada en Israel a Jerusalén, en consonancia con la decisión de Washington condenada por la Asamblea General de la ONU y desatando el agradecimiento israelí y el rechazo palestino.
      “El Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores recibe la instrucción presidencial (de Jimmy Morales) e inicia el proceso de ejecución de esta decisión de política exterior”, afirmó la cancillería guatemalteca el lunes en un comunicado.
      El proceso se inició al día siguiente de que Morales anunciara que dio instrucciones a su canciller Sandra Jovel para realizar el traslado.
      El primer ministro israelí, Benjamin Netanyahu, saludó este lunes en un comunicado la “importante” decisión de Guatemala.

      De que me sirve quererte y morirme por tu amor 
      si yo no estoy en tus sueños mucho menos en tu corazón. 

      Eres tan indiferente y no  te importa lo que siento 
      yo, si nunca puedo tenerte olvidarte creo que es mejor... 

      Que un momento de felicidad por muchos días de soledad 
      de que me sirve un momento si yo te quiero 
      para un tiempo eterno y cuando mas necesito de ti 
      algo te tiene que alejar de mi, de que me sirve quererte 
      si tu me dejas solo como siempre. 

      Quisiera ser más valiente y arrancarte de mi corazón 
      acostumbrarme a no verte encerrarme en mi mundo interior... 

      De que me sirve quererte y morirme por tu amor 
      si para ti hay tantas cosas mucho mas importantes que yo. 

      Que un momento de felicidad por muchos días de soledad 
      de que me sirve un momento si yo te quiero para un tiempo eterno 
      y cuando mas necesito de ti algo te tiene que alejar de mi 
      de que me sirve quererte si tu me dejas solo como siempre.
      Que un momento de felicidad por muchos días de soledad

      y cuando mas necesito de ti algo te tiene que alejar de mi

      Esta niña muy educada se acercó al exhibidor y miró por un momento y se le ofreció Mi libro de historias bíblicas. Ella aceptó con facilidad y empezó a leer inmediatamente. Casi una hora más tarde ella todavía está leyendo con avidez.

      After receiving dozens of complaints of child abuse, including whippings, beatings and forced underaged marriage, Guatemalan forces raid 'Lev Tahor' yard; Former cult member: 'They tried to break your independent thought.'
      Guatemalan authorities raided a yard belonging to a community of an extreme Haredi faction Tuesday “Lev Tahor” (Pure Heart) in the country’s capital Guatemala City after a number of serious child abuse complaints.
      Lev Tahor is an ultra-Orthodox sect comprised of predominantly Israeli Haredi extremists who leave their families behind in Israel as part of a wider boycott of Zionism. The group is widely considered to be a cult for its extreme conduct which adheres to the strict word of Jewish scripture.

      The authorities arrested the leaders of the sect and also took dozens of Israeli children and babies in their possession. Since the raid, Israel has established contacts with Guatemala to coordinate the flight of the children back home.
       
      The cult, which is headed by Shlomo Erez Helbrans, who 10 years ago was recognized as a refugee in Canada, consists of 230 members, 150 of whom are children. Until 2013, they resided in the St. Agate province in Quebec but were forced to move to Ontario.
       
      Two-and-a-half years ago the Canadian authorities thwarted an attempt by the sect to send its adherents to Guatemala after the Canadian courts decreed that some of the children be transferred to foster families due to evidence proving that they were suffering serious abuse.

      However, the sect succeeded in transferring a number of the children to Guatemala giving rise to a legal battle over the last few years to expel them back to Canada.
       
      According to social services in Quebec and Ontario, they have evidence of instances of abuse including beatings, child marriage and illegal education.
       
      One former member of the faction ‘A.’ described the prevailing culture of brainwashing by the leader. “People would follow us for him and report back to him. He would then take me and others for discussions which lasted for hours. The aim was to break your independent thought and to prove how big he was,” A. recalled.
       
      According to the Guatemalan authorities, “Lev Tahor” said that members of the cult were under national police surveillance.

      Evaluations indicate that Helbrans made a decision to secretly transfer the cult to Guatemala after Canadian authorities began waging a legal battle against it and demanded that children be placed in the care of foster care. According to families in the cult in Israel, Helbrans abused the children with clubs, coat hangers and iron rods and would sometimes lock them in basements. Moreover, social services in Quebec received reports that the children were forced to marry as young as 14.
       
      The raid in the group’s yard came at the request of the Israeli government. According to a statement by the Guatemalan authorities, the evidence compiled showed cases of, among other things, of “marriage between children, physical and emotional abuse against members of the community and against children. This evidence raises concerns about the physical and emotional well being of dozens of Israeli children currently residing in Guatemala under the sponsorship of the community.“
      The Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs, State Attorney’s Office, the Welfare Ministry and the Israel Police have been tracking the group’s development for a number of years and are all in contact with the relevant bodies, both in Canada and Guatemala.
       
      “I hope this will be the end of the nightmare for many people and children,” said A. He added that while he never witnessed any violence during his time in the cult, he heard about serious misdeeds.
       
      “I heard screaming from different houses of the cult members, and eventually I heard members telling about threatening acts such as humiliation, violence and whippings. One mother received orders to hit her child in the presence of others,” the former member recalled.

      Guatemala's government on Saturday declared a state of catastrophe in the northern province of Peten, the cradle of Mayan civilization and one of the last green lungs of the Americas, due to wildfires that have destroyed 8,000 hectares (31 sq. miles) and put an additional 200,000 hectares (772 sq. miles) at risk.
      The decision was made during a Cabinet meeting called by Vice President Jafeth Cabrera, who is standing in for President Jimmy Morales during the latter's visit to Havana for the Summit of the Association of Caribbean States.
      Cabrera said it was "regrettable" that some of the fires that were endangering protected areas of La Laguna del Tigre and the Tikal Archaeological Park had been caused by humans.
      The U.S. and Mexican governments have offered to supply water bombing helicopters, fire-extinguishing chemicals and food for the fire-fighting teams.
      At least 100 forest fires have been detected in Peten, a province with an area of 35,854 sq. kilometers (13,840 sq. miles) that borders Mexico and Belize, presidential spokesman Heinz Hiemann said. EFE

      Fuiste tú, 
      Tenerte fue una foto tuya puesta en mi cartera, 
      un beso y verte hacer pequeño por la carretera. 
      Lo tuyo fue la intermitencia y la melancolía, 
      lo mío fue aceptarlo todo porque te quería. 
      Verte llegar fue luz, verte partir un blues. 

      Fuiste tú, 
      de más está decir que sobra decir tantas cosas, 
      o aprendes a querer la espina o no aceptes rosas. 
      Jamás te dije una mentira o te inventé un chantaje, 
      las nubes grises también forman parte de paisaje. 
      Y no me veas así, si hubo un culpable aquí… 
      Fuiste tú. 

      (Coro) 
      Que fácil fue tocar el cielo la primera vez, 
      cuando los besos fueron el motor de arranque, 
      que encendió la luz que hoy se desaparece. 

      Así se disfraza el amor para su conveniencia, 
      aceptando todo sin hacer preguntas, 
      y dejando al tiempo la estocada a muerte. 
      Nada más que decir, 
      sólo queda insistir… 
      Dilo…. 

      Fuiste tú, 
      la luz de neón del barrio sabe que estoy tan cansada, 
      me ha visto caminar descalza por la madrugada. 
      Estoy en medio del que soy y del que tú quisieras, 
      queriendo despertar pensando como no quisiera. 
      Y no me veas así, si hubo un culpable aquí… 
      Fuiste tú. 

      (Coro) 
      Que fácil fue tocar el cielo la primera vez, 
      cuando los besos fueron el motor de arranque, 
      que encendió la luz que hoy se desaparece. 

      Así se disfraza el amor para su conveniencia, 
      aceptando todo sin hacer preguntas, 
      y dejando al tiempo la estocada a muerte. 
      Nada más que decir, 
      sólo queda insistir… 

      (Coro) 
      Que fácil fue tocar el cielo la primera vez, 
      cuando los besos fueron el motor de arranque, 
      que encendió la luz que hoy se desaparece. 

      Así se disfraza el amor para su conveniencia, 
      aceptando todo sin hacer preguntas, 
      y dejando al tiempo la estocada a muerte. 
      Nada más que decir, 
      si quieres insistir… 
      Fuiste tú.
