Skip to comments.A Rare Point of Agreement ... Mark Steyn

In recent days, Israel has been hit not only from the Gaza end of the Fatah-Hamas pantomime horse but also from Lebanon and Syria. It's under attack not merely from a terrorist squat but from two sovereign states, all of whom are clients to one degree or another of a third, Iran. Had not General Sisi overthrown Mohammed Morsi and tossed him in jail, there might have been a fourth country happy to make mischief. Meanwhile, across the Allenby Bridge in Jordan, Israel's least insane neighbor has seen its population swollen by 25 per cent from Syria refugees, and at its western frontier now borders the new caliphate of jihadist head-hackers. In the Sunni/Shia regional showdown between ISIS and Teheran's various subsidiaries, the two warring parties agree on little except that dead Jews brighten everyone's day.
Oh, well. The Middle East. It's all very complicated, isn't it? Fatah, Hamas, Hizb'Allah, the Muslim Brothers, ISIS, Alawites... Who can keep track?

at least they all fly the same black flag.
Oh, if only American journalists could think and write as eloquently as Mark Steyn. But then again, that would mean they would have to be objective, open-minded, unbiased, and not have thier Liberal heads stuck up their a$$es.
I don’t know if Steyn would call himself a “journalist”. He has applied for US citizenship, although, he might be regretting that decision.
I didn’t call Mark a journalist. I was just wishing our American journalists could think and write like him. I consider him to be one of the best conservative political commentators ever. He has no fear to tell it like it is. I would be proud to have Mark as an American citizen but I’m sure the current regime will find reason not to grant his wish.
Agree with your comments on Steyn. Also see Victor Davis Hanson another good essayist.
Yes, I agree. Although I have never understood why he is a registered Democrat. That makes me a little jittery.
Why not ask him as to his Democratic registration?
“He has no fear to tell it like it is. I would be proud to have Mark as an American citizen but Im sure the current regime will find reason not to grant his wish.”.....
Not begin a citizen gives him the right to criticize all he wants. GO FOT IT MARK!!!
Oh, if only American journalists could think and write as eloquently as Mark Steyn.
Well we still have Christopher Hitchens. Oh, sad to say, we don’t. Not anymore. And he wasn’t an American. Yes, things are thin and getting thinner all the time.
I can only find that Steyn is a Canadian citizen. It seems unlikely that he’s registered to vote with any US political party.
Sorry I was not more clear in post #8. I was referring to Victor Davis Hanson.
