When I first learned about the Dreyfus Affair, when a French Jewish artillery officer was falsely accused and convicted of treason, I did not quite grasp the full significance of this major historical event. 1/22
It's one of the most notorious examples of the dual loyalty trope –whereby Jewish citizens are said to be more loyal to a foreign power. It exposed how readily the French public and authorities were able to believe in Dreyfus' guilt with only the flimsiest of 'evidence'. 2/22
I thought about Dreyfus when I heard #MyMP @lloyd_rm venomously accuse MPs – including our most prominent Jewish Labour MP @lucianaberger – of being 'traitors'. 3/22

This man is my local MP. Here he is calling a group of British MPs 'cowards' and 'un-British'. 1/8
This group includes @lucianaberger. Luciana is Jewish and stands up against #labourantisemitism. For this, she has faced relentless abuse, threats that have led to convictions, and even harm wished to her unborn child. Some threats were not disclosed to her by her own party. 2/8
At the last Labour Party conference she had to have police protection, to her own party conference. Far Left antisemites are fond of calling her "the MP for Tel-Aviv". My MP thinks it's appropriate to call her 'un-British' and a 'coward'. 3/8
