Last Sunday the Pope baptized Magdi Allam. The fact that he chose to do it in such a public manner is very remarkable. Allam is a major public figure both in Italy and in the Arab speaking world, and his public conversion will force many Muslim to take a position on issues like freedom of religion, apostasy and so on...

Allam's letter to the editor of Corriere della sera is also very interesting.
