Convert to Catholicism Criticizes Cardinal President of PCpDI

The prominent Egyptian-born Italian jounralist and convert to Catholicism, Magdi Cristiano Allam, has criticized recent remarks made by the President of the Pontifical Council for Inter-religious Dialogue, Jean Louis CARD. Tauran, saying:
Islamic extremism and terrorism are the mature fruit of Islam [and not, as Cardinal Tauran has stated, a perversion of a basically "peaceful religion"].
For more, see the CNS story by Cindy Wooden. Readers of Italian can go straight to the source: the full text of the letter is published at this website (amici di Magdi Allam, lit. "Friends of Magdi Allam").

A tip of the hat to my home diocese in the States, the Diocese of Bridgeport.

Look for updates throughout the day.
