In the Spring of 2004 I took a class at Syracuse University called “Depression Era Movies” and “Gabriel Over the White House” was one of many movies we watched. I wrote a paper about this film because I believed that what was occurring in 1930s USA (and the world) had much to teach us about what is occurring now – if we are willing to listen. I mention Dr. Dhafir toward the end of the paper; at that time he had been held for 14 months without bail and I had only a vague awareness of his case.
