Reader’s Links for July 23, 2020

Daily Links Post graphic

Each day at just after midnight Eastern, a post like this one is created for contributors and readers of this site to upload news links and video links on the issues that concern this site. Most notably, Islam and its effects on Classical Civilization, and various forms of leftism from Soviet era communism, to postmodernism and all the flavours of galloping statism and totalitarianism such as Nazism and Fascism which are increasingly snuffing out the classical liberalism which created our near, miraculous civilization the West has been building since the time of Socrates.

This document was written around the time this site was created, for those who wish to understand what this site is about. And while our understanding of the world and events has grown since then, the basic ideas remain sound and true to the purpose.

So please post all links, thoughts and ideas that you feel will benefit the readers of this site to the comments under this post each day. And thank you all for your contributions.

This is the new Samizdat. We must use it while we can.

  1. Arab economies to shrink pushing quarter of population into poverty

    “A new economic forecast of Arab economies by the United Nations has painted a gloomy picture of the region. The spread of the coronavirus pandemic is expected to exact a heavy toll causing economies to contract by 5.7 per cent and the loss of some $152 billion.

    The forecast for some Arab countries is gloomier with economies expected to shrink by as much as 13 per cent, according to the report compiled by the UN’s Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia.

    Another 14.3 million people may be pushed into poverty, raising the total number to 115 million – a quarter of the total Arab population, the report said.

    With more than 55 million people in the region relying on humanitarian aid before the COVID-19 crisis, including 26 million who were forcibly displaced, many countries are expected to struggle with the added burden…”

  2. 1m Turks at risk of losing German citizenship, media reports
    https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/20200723-1m-turks-at-risk-of-losing-german-citizenship-media-reports/

    “Some one million Turks are at risk of losing their German citizenship because authorities believe they hold dual nationality which was obtained after they were naturalised, duvaR reported.

    Germany’s Interior Minister of State of North Rhine Westphalia sent a circular asking municipalities for identifying those who became German citizens after 2000 and to check if they had subsequently obtained a Turkish nationality. Germany’s post-2000 law made it possible for the country to withdraw citizenship from those who had taken up another nationality following their naturalisation in Germany. The rule does not apply to nationals of EU member states.

    About a million Turks are threatened with losing their nationality as they are accused of knowingly violating the German citizenship laws, the report says.

    Of those 112,211 naturalised German citizens in 2017, almost 39,000 came from EU member states and 99 per cent kept their original nationality, according to a DW report.

    In Germany, German-Turks are often the focus of the dual-nationality discussion, they are the third largest group of dual citizens with 530,000 holding two passports.

    German law generally discourages dual citizenship, but it does not always require that applicants renounce their citizenship before becoming German.

    According to the Federal Statistics Office, out of the 73 million Germans in the country, around 4.3 million people hold at least one other citizenship.”
