The Dreyfus Affair (1894-1906) traumatized and transformed France, much like Charlie Hebdo is doing today. Edmond de Rothschild arranged for an innocent Jew, Captain Alfred Dreyfus, to be charged with spying. This aroused anti-Semitism so Jews would go to Israel, as is happening today. Later, when the real spy, Ferdinand Esterhazy, a secret Rothschild agent, confessed, Jews were vindicated and Patriotic France was disgraced.

"All history books tell this story in terms of a comforting morality play where the innocent Jew (Dreyfus–Rothschild) is vindicated. … Edmond de Rothschild (1845-1934) was the man who financed the Zionist colonization of Palestine. Like the Charlie Hebdo false flag, the Dreyfus Affair told assimilated Jews that they must have a country of their own."

In 1894, a French artillery captain, Alfred Dreyfus, was falsely accused of passing secrets to the Germans. A Jew, he seemed to confirm the belief that Jews, led by Baron Edmond de Rothschild, constituted a fifth column and undermined French independence and culture.
Dreyfus was publicly stripped of his commission and given a life sentence at Devil's Island, where he was put in leg irons. Throughout his trial and imprisonment, Dreyfus professed his innocence.
The Dreyfus Affair was an elaborate psy-op. The real spy, Ferdinand Esterhazy, was in the pay of Baron Edmond de Rothschild. They deliberately implicated the Jew Dreyfus so that when he was finally vindicated, the conservative anti-Semitic anti-Rothschild party would be humiliated and discredited.
The Esterhazy information was "leaked" to the press, and for ten years France was convulsed (destabilized) as the nationalists (army, landowners, and church) faced off against the Dreyfus family, liberals, and socialists demanding justice.
Governments fell; anti-Semitic rioters roamed the streets; duels were fought; and the whole world watched in dismay.
Émile Zola, a Rothschild protégé and Freemason, wrote the famous "J'accuse", exposing the cover-up. Celebrities signed petitions demanding justice for the innocent Jewish artillery captain.
Eventually, Esterhazy was fired and escaped to England where, in 1899, he admitted that he was the spy. Nevertheless, the government and army dug itself a deeper hole, ignoring the evidence and prosecuting Dreyfus' defenders. Inevitably, the government changed, and after numerous trials and appeals, partial reality was finally recognized.
Dreyfus was exonerated in 1906 and made "Chevalier of the Legion of Honour" in the same courtyard where he had been disgraced.
The forces of religion, nation, and anti-Semitism were discredited. All history books tell this story in terms of a comforting morality play where the innocent Jew (Dreyfus–Rothschild) is vindicated. Dreyfus was innocent, but Rothschild certainly was not.
The man guilty of the treasonous acts blamed on Dreyfus, Major Ferdinand Esterhazy, was an agent of Baron Edmond de Rothschild.
Esterhazy was a translator with the French General Staff. In July 1894, he approached the German military attaché in Paris, Maximilian von Schwartzkoppen, saying that financial duress compelled him to sell military secrets.
In fact, Esterhazy had just received a large sum from Edmond de Rothschild in June 1894. He had been a schoolmate of Edmond de Rothschild's, and this was only one of many payments. (Herbert Lottman, The French Rothschilds: The Great Banking Dynasty Through Two Turbulent Centuries, 1995, pp. 115-117)
There are many other indications that the whole "Dreyfus Affair" was orchestrated.
At the beginning, news of Captain Dreyfus' guilt was leaked to the anti-Semitic newspaper La Libre Parole. The publisher, Édouard Drumont, took the bait and began a vitriolic campaign against the Jewish officer. In fact, Esterhazy was also a friend of Drumont's.
It is possible that Drumont was financed by the Rothschilds. The Protocols of Zion acknowledge funding anti-Semitic publications. This may explain why anti-Semites blame all Jews instead of focusing on the Rothschilds and their Sabbatean/Masonic confrères. Thus, Jews become human shields for the bankers. Similarly, socialists never mention the Rothschilds when attacking capitalism.
In January 1898, Emile Zola published his "J'accuse" in the newspaper L'Aurore, edited by Freemason and future Prime Minister Georges Clemenceau.
Zola was charged with libel, sentenced to a year in jail, and fined 3000 francs; he fled to England. In 1902, Zola died "accidentally" in his home, poisoned by carbon monoxide. Did he learn something he should not have?
According to Frederick Brown's Zola: A Life (Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, 888 pp, 1995): In a deathbed confession decades after Zola's death, which was ruled an accident by coroner and the press, a Paris roofer confessed to closing the flue on Zola's chimney on purpose. The roofer didn't allude to a conspiracy; only said he did it for "political reasons".
In The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, the author refers to their ability to make the murders of Masons who become an obstacle look natural. On the other hand, Zola's odd demise could have been inspired by anti-Dreyfus feelings.
On Feb. 16, 1899, the President of the Republic, Félix Faure, died suddenly in his office. He had just met with an exponent of Dreyfus' cause and argued. There was speculation he was poisoned. Faure was succeeded by Émile Loubet, a supporter of Dreyfus. The Rothschild press made up a story that Faure died while having sex, and this is repeated in Wikipedia.
According to Wikipedia, "Soon afterward, Herzl wrote Der Judenstaat (The Jewish State, 1896) and founded the World Zionist Organization, which called for the creation of a Jewish State in Palestine. The anti-Semitism and injustice revealed in France by the conviction of Alfred Dreyfus had a radicalizing effect on Herzl, demonstrating to him that Jews, despite the Enlightenment and Jewish assimilation, could never hope for fair treatment in European society."
This is another example of how the Rothschilds secretly incite anti-Semitism, in order to dupe Jews into advancing their demented scheme for a world government based in Israel. The same principle guided the Jewish holocaust where millions of innocent Jews became Dreyfus and worse. In the Protocols, the author refers to the "management of our lesser brethren". He means: inciting anti-Semitism.
Sponsoring Hitler was just a few levels of duplicity above sponsoring Esterhazy. In both cases, the French and German "anti-Semites" fell into the trap.
Thus, the Rothschilds trick Jews who want to assimilate into acting as agents and human shields for their Satanic agenda. The same Jews, of course, will be blamed.
The Dreyfus Affair is yet another example of how historical events are manufactured by the Rothschilds for their psychological and political value. Looking back, we have: 9-11; the Kennedy assassination; the Cold War; Vietnam War; Korean War; Hiroshima; Second World War, the Jewish holocaust; Pearl Harbor; and so on....
Obviously, the Rothschilds' mass media helps them put over their subterfuges. Another example of their duplicity is the phony bankers' coup of 1933, which was used to give their pawn FDR credibility. Social movements and ideologies are also Rothschild psy-ops: sexual liberation, women's liberation, the civil rights movement, gay rights, feminism, diversity, multiculturalism.
We can apply these lessons today by looking at current events in terms of how they advance the New World Order.
