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.

“The security forces in an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in North Waziristan smashed a high profile terrorist network, killing its ringleader and his four associates and arrested 10 others, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Monday.
The ISPR, media wing of the military said that wanted terrorist Wasim Zakaria was the mastermind of the 30 difference act of terrorism since 2019, including target killings, attacks on security forces and other government officials.
Security forces conducted an IBO in Mir Ali town where five militants, including Zakaria, were killed while 10 were arrested, the ISPR said. “The terrorist organisation’s network was destroyed after the operation,” the ISPR added in a statement…”
2 wanted terrorists among 6 neutralized in Turkey
“Two wanted terrorists were among six neutralized in Turkey’s eastern province of Bitlis, the Interior Ministry said on Sept. 7.
The ministry said in a written statement that Özlem Atsak, codenamed Ronahi Dersim, in the orange category and R?dvan Ery?lmaz, codenamed Azad Sores, in the gray category of the wanted list were neutralized in Sunday’s operation in Sehi district.
Atsak was said to be responsible for handling the female group of the terrorist group. The terrorists’ affiliation was not mentioned, but the terror group PKK has been active in the region.
The Interior Ministry’s wanted list is divided into five color codes: red as the most wanted, followed by blue, green, orange, and gray. On Sunday, six terrorists were neutralized in Bitlis during the domestic security operation carried out with the support of unmanned aerial vehicle and combat helicopter ATAK, the statement added.
Turkish authorities often use the term “neutralized” to imply the terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.”
Turkey nabs 3 FETO suspects trying to enter Greece
“Three suspected members of the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) were arrested in northwestern Turkey as they attempted to cross to Greece, security sources said Monday.
The suspects were held by Turkish police in Edirne province bordering Greece and Bulgaria, said a source who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.
A suspect identified as Ibrahim Emre, 47, is a former police chief, while another suspect Ramazan Haktan Helvaci, 32, is a former inspector. The third suspect has been identified as Muhammet Emre, 37, who was dismissed from public service.
After the arrest, a local court remanded the suspects into custody.
Last week, six suspects, found to be members of the FETO terror group, were caught in a prohibited military zone in Edirne trying to cross to Greece via Turkey.
FETO and its US-based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the defeated coup on July 15, 2016 which left 251 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.
Ankara also 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.”
Turkey arrests 8 FETO terror suspects
“At least eight people were arrested in western Turkey for their alleged links to the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), the group behind the 2016 defeated coup, a security source said on Monday.
The arrests were made in Denizli province after the chief public prosecutor’s office issued warrants for the suspects, including a lieutenant and three former cadets, said the source, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.
One suspect was remanded in custody while the others were released on judicial control, the source added.

Introducing the Soros employee behind the media campaign against Hungary
“Hungarian conservative daily Magyar Nemzet has reported that it has identified a key player in billionaire financier George Soros’ media campaign against Hungary. The report promised to be the first in a series of articles.
“We are also going to publish financial documents never before seen in the Hungarian press, making it unequivocal that Gerald Knaus is not only linked to the Soros network for his beliefs, but also for clear financial reasons,” Magyar Nemzet writes.
Austrian-born social scientist Gerald Knaus (50) is one of the founders of the European Stability Initiative think tank, with offices in Berlin, Brussels and Istanbul. It was established in Sarajevo in 1999 and provides and disseminates background analyses primarily on the Balkan countries, EU enlargement, migration and the Syrian refugee crisis.
Knaus studied in Oxford, Bologna and Brussels and taught in the Ukraine. He worked for five years at various NGOs in Bulgaria and Bosnia, was a resident of Istanbul from 2004 and received a scholarship from Soros’ Open Society Foundations.
In the past few years, he has also been actively involved in establishing the London-based think tank European Council on Foreign Relations, which has offices in seven European capitals.
Magyar Nemzet writes that in the past few months, Knaus has been systematically promoting on his social media account a report from the Dutch public service television that was purportedly about the lack of proper medical care in Hungary. The key claim of the report was that an elderly Hungarian lady died after having been refused medical treatment. In truth, she was offered treatment at a Budapest hospital but refused it and subsequently succumbed to her illness and died at home.
Magyar Nemzet presented a document showing that in 2017 the Open Society Foundations extended a €300,000 grant to Knaus’ European Stability Initiative, for a loosely defined purpose: “to promote reform of key European institutions and ensure a more robust response to human rights violations.”
Magyar Nemzet also wrote that according to lobbyfacts.eu — a site providing information on lobbying in European institutions — the European Stability Initiative had lobbying costs of between €300,000-€400,000 for the financial year 2019.
“This also proves that this is not an NGO or a conventional research institute, but rather a well-camouflaged lobbying group,” the paper writes. “Most likely, as paid lobbyists of Soros, they promote his ideas and work on their implementation.””
