I Accuse! | Naphtali Perlberger | The Times of #Israel
On January 13, 1898, Emile Zola wrote an open letter in the newspaper L’Aurore the world-shaking J’accuse, which was pivotal to the re-opening of the #Dreyfus trial and the exposure of the treason and conspiracy that made this Jew a scapegoat in an anti-Semitic French society convicted wrongly and sentenced to Devil’s Island. His article was instrumental in the reversal of his conviction, reinstatement to his rank and the cleansing of his family’s disgrace.
We are here in a world experiencing a frightening resurgence of anti-Semitism and anti-Israel hatred. We are more than a hundred years after the infamous Dreyfus Affair, and 70 years after World War II, when the remnants of European Jewry survived the Holocaust. For me, born in Krakow in 1945 to Holocaust survivors, living almost five years in D.P. camps before coming to America, I marveled then and am horrified now at the world’s upside-down morality.
I Accuse — the overwhelming majority of the world’s mainstream media!
I Accuse — the fraudulent and weak-spirited protesters, who hide behind the superficial opposition to Israel, when they really hate and condemn all Jews by their anti-Semitic lies!
I Accuse — our Government for destroying our credibility by playing dangerously in the world arena in chameleon-like fashion, bouncing back and forth between warring factions, giving no clear sign of our dedication to Truth and Democracy!
I Accuse — the United Nations for tearing up its Charter, and for blatantly passing resolution after resolution against Israel, while applauding and embracing the peoples and nations that are the true violators of World Peace, for which the UN was empowered to defend!
I Accuse — those political leaders, in which we the American People have elected and entrusted our trust, who do not stand behind Israel and NAME the Enemies of democracy, freedom, human rights, and the pledge of our Founding Fathers that this Nation was founded upon Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness!

The Dreyfus Affair is a shameful story that many people are not aware of today. Is it still being taught in our schools? Let us spread the word of what can happen when institutional #antisemitism takes root in the Western, not Muslim, world. Corruption of witnesses and the judiciary can cause hapless Jews to be railroaded as was done to Alfred Dreyfus a little more than a century ago.
The full article comprises a more detailed, in-depth indictment of many aspects of antisemitism in communities worldwide. Few groups escape any responsibility for failing to counter and stop this scourge.
And now, look at all the institutional antisemitism that exists in governmental, religious, and other levels of society. Awareness is only the first step. Good people of all faiths must stop this deadly virus.
Consider how the current President associates with and supports those who espouse antisemitism. It is essential that the next President promote the diametrically opposite view. Any of the Republican candidates would be a significant improvement, but it would be beneficial to have a President who already is known to be a proud Zionist.
I am pleased to support a Presidential candidate who has declared, “We love Israel. We will fight for Israel 100%, 1000%. It will be there forever.” That man is Donald Trump, an American patriot and Zionist. Other articles on this blog (Zionists4Trump.com) provide further information about Donald Trump.
