Latest Arab Conspiracy Theory: ISIS Selling Syrian, Iraqi Kids to Childless Israeli Settlers
The latest unhinged hot rumor in the Arab world alleges that Israel is benefiting from ISIS-backed child-trafficking rings, which are smuggling Syrian and Iraqi children into the Jewish state, for adoption by childless Israeli couples, Israel’s NRG News reported Friday.
Tunisia’s al-Shorouk broadsheet recently published a report claiming that gangs working with the terrorist organization are abducting infant Yezidis, Christians and Kurds, and selling them to Israeli middlemen.
According to the newspaper, ISIS smugglers bring the toddlers to Israel via Turkey, and that an Israeli lawyer helps place them with Jewish families living in Judea and Samaria in order to boost the settler population.
However, such farfetched tales of supposed Israeli machinations aren’t limited to the middle east.
Last week, a local Swedish politician in Sweden’s ruling party charged that Israel provided ISIS with military training.
“ISIS is being trained by the Israeli Mossad. Muslims are not waging war, they are being used as pawns by other peoples’ game,” Adrian Kaba, who represents the Social Democratic Party of Sweden on the Malmö City Council and the regional government, wrote in a statement on his Facebook page on July 21, the Swedish newspaper Sydsvenskan revealed.
