Lebanese Researcher Hani Suleiman: The Jewish Agency Collected Abandoned Babies From Brazil To Raise As Jews And Replenish The 'Depleted' Ranks Of The Israeli Army

Lebanese researcher Hani Suleiman said on a March 18, 2024 show on Al-Manar TV (Lebanon) that in the year 2000, the Jewish Agency brought young children born out of wedlock in Brazil to Israel. He said that even though they were not Jewish, the military establishment incorporated them as soldiers in the army, due to its depleted ranks.

Hani Suleiman: "The [Israeli] army has been depleted, and they need [new] active forces. Would you believe it that in the year 2000...  

"A friend who used to live in Brazil has told me that in Brazil, as you know, there are three phenomena the country is based on – football, drugs, and illicit sexual relations.

"As a result of all those illicit relations, many babies would be born, and they would dump them at the beach in Rio de Janeiro.

"My friend told me that the Jewish Agency would collect those children, and once a month, a plane would take off from Brazil to Tel Aviv... That was in 2000. These planes would carry on board children aged between five days and a year."

Interviewer: "This is human trafficking..."

Hani Suleiman: "It is not human trafficking. It is human exploitation. They take them and raise them as Jews, even though they are not Jews.

"So the rabbis went up in arms, and said one cannot turn a non-Jew into a Jew. But the military establishment told them: 'Shut up! Israel’s security trumps any other consideration. We need soldiers!'"
