The Daily Star is an English language newspaper based in Lebanon. It was founded in 1952 by the publisher Kamel Mrowa--who already owned and edited the Arabic daily Al-Hayat--to serve the growing number of expatriates brought by the oil industry.

The flight of the intelligensia from the country depleted the paper's staff and its readership.
