Reader’s Links for August 26, 2020

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. Turkey: 24 ex-police officers held in FETO terror sweep

    “At least 24 former police officers in Turkey were arrested for their suspected links to the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), security sources said on Wednesday.

    Prosecutors in southeastern Gaziantep province issued arrest warrants for 25 expelled police officers, as part of an investigation into FETO’s infiltration of security forces, said the sources who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

    Anti-terror operations were conducted in six provinces, and so far 24 suspects have been rounded up.

    Efforts continued to capture the remaining suspect.

    FETO and its US-based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the July 15, 2016 defeated coup in Turkey, in which 251 people were martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.

    Ankara accuses FETO of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police and judiciary.”

  2. 200 migrants stuck in Bosnia after authorities set up police roadblocks

    “A dispute between regional authorities in Bosnia has left nobody wanting to accept migrants attempting to travel on to Western Europe, resulting in 200 of them to be stuck near the town of Bosanska Otoka.

    Authorities in the north of the country have condemned the alleged inability of other parts of the state to share the burden of the migration crisis and set up roadblocks with police patrols on roads in the Krajina region. The roadblocks are designed to prevent refugees from entering the territory under their jurisdiction, and police are supposed to escort migrants who manage to breakthrough to where they came from.

    At the same time, other parts of the country are also refusing to take them, resulting in 200 migrants being ordered off of buses and trains near the town of Bosanska Otoka.

    Although most of the migrants are men, their numbers also include women and children.

    “There is no food, no water, nothing,” said Ali Razah from Pakistan, noting that various police forces prevented him from moving in any direction.

    In response to the action of the northern Bosnian authorities, other administrative areas of the country have taken a similar step, also sending police forces to prevent migrants from returning to “their” area…”

  4. Spain: At least 26 arrested after riot in Melilla migrant centre

    At least 26 inmates were arrested after a riot at the Center for Temporary Stay of Immigrants (CETI) in Melilla on Wednesday.

    Footage shows some of the inmates being taken away in handcuffs after their arrest, while police officers inside CETI assess the damage to the facility. According to reports, at least nine officers were injured in the riot.

    Local media report that the inmates are demanding to be transferred to a facility on the Spanish peninsula, arguing that the overcrowded conditions of the migrant centre could provoke an outbreak of cases of COVID-19 after one of the inmates was reportedly infected.

    The Center for Temporary Stay of Immigrants has an official capacity of 782 individuals, but currently hosts some 1,300 inmates.
