An Islamist website has condemned the controversial and public baptism of formerly Muslim Italian journalist Magdi Allam, and questioned the strength of his previous commitment to Islam. The site, which is linked to Hamas, also blasted the Western press for saying that Allam was a prominent Muslim and that the truth is he was neither Muslim nor prominent. The posting on the site said that the problem lies in the vindictive atmosphere surrounding the conversion ceremony, including the anti-Islamic allusions and insinuations.” The posting, which was written by a Palestinian commentator, concluded by saying that Muslims and Christians are compatriots all over the world, and that each community must be sensitive to the sensibilities and feelings of the other.
