The Dreyfus Affair bitterly divided French society. The cartoon depicts a family meal. In the upper picture, the family says, “Above all, we will not talk about the Dreyfus Affair!” In the lower picture, the family members are quarreling and the headline says “… they spoke …”(Caran d ache)
With Justice For All does not mean that Trump deprives a citizen from coming home, even from Syria after investing in ISIS. Pompeo is erupting with a major, volcanic injustice, which he may be used to doing. Born in New Jersey does mean Born in the USA.

Anti-Semitism is on the rise in France and the United States. According to today’s news, a huge anti-terrorist plot was unfolded by a former U.S. Marine who was going to act in the name of the American Hate God, White Supremacy.
And then Trump says that the new Attorney General will decide if the Mueller Report which is coming soon will be released. The Dreyfus Family is turning over in its grave as another injustice may be taking place in Washington, D.C. A nation cannot stand back as France stood back for years as an innocent man was convicted. We cannot stand back if Trump committed crimes against US. This must be the year of With Justice For All.
This is from today’s New York Post Fast Takes “More than 120 years after the onset of the Dreyfus Affair, the recent actions of France’s yellow vest protesters are raising the specter of homegrown anti-Semitism there, warns Robert Zaretsky at Real Clear World.” And it is stated that “44 percent of yellow-vesters believe in the existence of a global Zionist conspiracy.” And here are the roots of American anti-Semitism.
Donald Trump applauded those “yellow vesters” when things started up. And there is no doubt that Trump’s supporters may be who those French people are looking at currently.
And we know that there is anti-Semitism on the left and the right, but looking at that 44 percent of those workers who believe the same old conspiracy we should not be surprised. We are being told today that homosexuals control the government of New York City and by a Christian pastor who probably supports Israel. We are told that anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism.
Here is something from the latest book that I am reading. Enemies and Neighbors by Ian Black. “They (the Arabs) will acquire excellent brothers, just as the Sultan will acquire loyal and good subjects, who will cause the region, their historic fatherland, to flourish.” I will tell you later who wrote that.
Remember that the Trump Corporation may not be paying its workers adequately and there was union action against the hotel in Las Vegas before the Election of 2016. His main supporters do not like unions which demand higher wages and more benefits as well.
Sean Hannity has spoken about how he appreciates working-class people that work with their hands over intellectuals, but we cannot fault Hannity in respect to rising anti-Semitism by not addressing the problem. There surely may be other ways that people get on the road to anti-Semitism that the Hannitys are not dealing with. Nice words are not enough and prayers for those Jews who have been killed in France and Pittsburgh are finally being recognized as insufficient. Amen! And that includes Trump’s visit to the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.

In relation to the African-American community, it is not about teaching them only about dreidels, the hora, and latkas (which was what Ambassador Michael Oren of Israel was doing as he tried to build bigger support for Israel). It is about the side that Natalie Portman has talked about. The cause of justice affects us all. Dreyfus did not have to say “I can’t breathe” to start a mass movement. Their (the African-American community) cause is our cause, but only when they and we are right.
Two-thirds of youth going to prison are “special ed’ students, maybe some of them fit the ADD or Attention Deficit Disorder which is and was the DNA of Michael Oren. Learn about Toya Graham whose son was dressed much like the Palestinian youth committing violence in the Middle East. Her son made front page news in Baltimore and I held up that photo of Ms. Graham whacking her son alongside his head during a demonstration in Baltimore at the headquarters of the Department of Education of the City of New York in front of a group of parent leaders.
I am committed to a plan of action that will really educate the African-American and Hispanic communities across the United States. How would the people in the congregation of Temple Beth El (a congregation of Black Jews) and whose rabbi when I wrote this was Michelle Obama’s cousin) feel about the whole picture? Should we not find out? Are there injustices committed against those people in Philadelphia because they are Black?
I expect to hear from those (people) who claim or pretend that they are creating progress, but who accomplish very little. The plan of action in Jewish communities is not enough. People are hard at work accomplishing very little. The insanity must stop and it must stop now.
As I have previously told people, a study of the Dreyfus Affair and the movie The Music Box would help educate people, people that are the victims of injustices as well. The Tamir Rice decision just came out as I was typing and it vindicates the police. The other decision to pay $6.5 million to the family of Walter Scott who was shot in the back by a police officer in North Charleston, South Carolina, was equally predictable. He had no gun or pellet gun as Tamir Rice had when he was shot by a policeman. We are Dreyfusards fighting for JUSTICE and the TRUTH.
The important thing is to know how to know explain the difference between types of crimes and how to weigh evidence. In both The Music Box and The Life of Emile Zola, we learn about making decisions based on the evidence. Racism plays a part in policing and we all have to protect ourselves, at times, from the military and the police, but we also have to distinguish between what is racist and what is not. Unfortunately too many people cannot distinguish the difference. Education must continue to play an important role in improving the world and shaping justice.
The Dreyfus Trial in 1894 was attended by Theodore Herzl who was a reporter and within two years he helped found the Zionist movement. It was Herzl who made the statement about Jews and Arabs living together as brothers.
The Music Box applies to all cases even the Jussie Smollett case. There is a famous saying in America which is “It ain’t over till it’s over.” He also said that you could observe a lot by watching. So watch out! I hope someone is listening to me.
