Everyone in the West Should Read Mark Steyn

Mark Steyn, whose web site can be found here publishes in papers around the world including my home town Chicago Sun Times. His column this Sunday is typical of his high quality writing but I must say that today’s column is particularly great. Steyn writes:

“Something very remarkable is happening around the globe and, if you want the short version, a Muslim demonstrator in Toronto the other day put it very well: ‘We won't stop the protests until the world obeys Islamic law.’”

That demonstrator’s quote, as over the top as it is, pretty much sums up one of the big problems that I was trying (much less eloquently) to write about here and here. We need to be aware that so far Islam’s neighbors have suffered for the demand for all to live under Islamic law. That “so far” is about 1400 years. That “so far” hasn’t been all that great for the Muslim world either, particularly most of the last millennia.
