A few articles from two of my favorite commentators, Thomas Sowell & Mark Steyn.

Will cease-fires never cease?

In which Sowell provides a concise, modern history of Israel and lays the blame for Arab refugees firmly at the feet of the Arabs themselves. Hot off the press.

Pacifists versus peace

In which Sowell shows that "peace" movements do not achieve peace at all but enable & encourage aggressors.

Advocates of 'proportion' are just unbalanced

In which Steyn argues that a proportionate military response plays into the hands of the aggressor and renders the victim impotent.


In which Steyn identifies the vacuity of multiculturalism as a replacement for true identity, and the alacrity with which Islam fills the gap.

Pan-Islamism challenges idea of nation state

In which Steyn argues that Pan-Islamism, not wars between nations, is the real threat, and that Westernism is dying by degrees, sacrificing itself upon the altar of multiculturalism.

NB: if Steyn gets any better, I won't be able to handle it.
