According to two Spanish-language television networks, Israel used its recent humanitarian mission to Nepal as a human trafficking operation. The stations reported to viewers that 25 Nepalese infants were smuggled out of the country with Israeli aid workers as part of a baby stealing plot.

Iranian HispanTV and Venezuela's Telesur network, which is broadcasted throughout most of Latin America and is the country’s national public television channel, were the two channels to break the “news” to their Spanish viewers.

Although Telsur receives the higher viewership, HispanTV was the first of the two networks to report the story. Citing an anonymous NGO, they explained that “Israel uses humanitarian help as a cover for [the] trafficking of 25 babies in Nepal.” Telesur then spread the story throughout most of the Continent a week later.

While it’s true that 25 infants were retrieved from Nepal, 15 of them are said to be from Tammuz, which is an Israeli surrogacy agency, with the other 10 are from surrogate mothers for Israeli families.

“The ‘Tehran-Caracas axis’ even perverts humanitarian aid to victims of natural disasters such as the Nepal earthquake, just as they had accused the Israeli medical mission of harvesting body parts in the Haiti catastrophe,” Dr. Shimon Samuels, director for International Relations, said on behalf of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in a report. “Through these Spanish-language television satellites, Iran foments anti-Semitism across the Americas, just as it sponsors global terrorism, slanders the Holocaust and pursues its nuclear program.”
