Reader’s Links for March 11, 2021

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. CBC – MPs vote to include mental illness in MAID program

  2. South African Chief Justice Defiant over Pro-Israel Remarks

    Judge Phineas Mojapelo’s Judicial Conduct Committee has ordered outgoing Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng to unconditionally apologize and retract his pro-Israel comments made last year.

    Mogoeng had said in June that he was under an obligation as a Christian to love Israel. Responding to complaints, Mogoeng insisted that “Israeli-Palestine politics or issues are not an integral part of South African politics….Mature democracies don’t penalize judges for holding strong views on Christianity or any religion.”

  3. Understanding Iran’s Vast Media Network in Arab Countries

    Iran’s Islamic Radio and Television Union (IRTVU) is the main propaganda arm of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Qods Force (IRGC-QF), supporting and in many cases creating the bulk of the television channels and other media outlets run by Iran’s proxies abroad.

    Tehran’s media strategy in the Middle East is an integral part of its effort to advance its regional expansionism.

    Established in 2007, IRTVU falls under the Iranian Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance, chaired by a minister who must receive approval from the Supreme Leader.

    Tasked with disseminating an anti-American and anti-Israeli narrative, the organization acts as an umbrella for “axis of resistance” media outlets.

    Today, IRTVU has more than 210 affiliates in 35 countries, including satellite television channels, radio stations, news websites, news agencies, training centers, media production companies, and research centers.
