Guatemala on Sunday became the second country in the world to announce the transfer of its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem after the United States.
The reasons of the ambassador
“My grandfather was really a fighter for the causes in which he believed there had been injustice,” his granddaughter Carla García Granados would explain years later in the video “The Guatemalan who helped create Israel”, visible on the website of the Israeli embassy in the Central American country.
While the American journalist Irin Carmon highlights the similarities that the Central American diplomat identified between Guatemala and Israel, which he saw as a country that emerged from a “liberation struggle against British imperialism.”
