The Spiritual Journey of Magdi Allam
by Robert Spencer
The highest-profile convert to Roman Catholicism in recent memory, Magdi Cristiano Allam, has left the Catholic Church.
Allam, who was baptized in the Vatican by Pope Benedict XVI on Easter day 2008, explained that what "more than any other factor drove me away from the Church" was the "legitimization of Islam as the true religion of Allah as the one true God, Muhammad as a true prophet, the Koran as a sacred text, and of mosques as places of worship."
Allam declared that contrary to all that, he was "convinced" that Islam was an "inherently violent ideology," and that he was "even more convinced that Europe will eventually submit to Islam."
