Quote of the day

"Having been condemned to death, I have reflected a long time on the value of life. And I discovered that behind the origin of the ideology of hatred, violence and death is the discrimination against Israel. Everyone has the right to exist except for the Jewish state and its inhabitants. Today, Israel is the paradigm of the right to life."

— Magdi Allam, the Muslim-born journalist who received death threats from Hamas over his vocal support of Israel, and who was baptized by the Pope last night. Reuters has more on his conversion.
