A former member of an extreme Jewish jungle cult that has been accused of child sex abuse has spoken of its warped teachings – including plans for mass slaughter should outside authorities intervene.

Yisrael Amir, now 22, was a member of Lev Tahor or “Pure Heart”, which claims to follow a fundamentalist version of Judaism and forces women to cover their bodies from head to toe and carries out teen marriages.

But former members and Israeli courts say it’s nothing more than a “dangerous cult”.

The group settled in Guatemala in 2013 after being accused of systematic and widespread abuse of children in Canada.

Yisrael and his wife were both 16 when they tied the knot, despite the legal age for marriage being 18 in the Central American country.

His sister was one of a number of children married off when they were barely a teenager, Yisrael said.
The 22-year-old, who now lives in Tel Aviv with his aunt, told the BBC: “My sister was 13 and they forced her to marry a 19-year-old. She was crying.

“She cried so much they punished her by banning her from speaking for a year.

“She could not say a word – not ask for food, not ask for the toilet, nothing.”

  1. This is the story of a cult victim of Lev Tahor, a religious sect that horribly abused women and children and fled from country to country trying to avoid accountability and evade justice.
