A coup for NCR's Allen

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | May 02, 2003

John Allen of the National Catholic Reporter gets a big score for this week's column, which includes an exclusive interview with the outgoing Israeli ambassador to the Holy See. The ambassador, Yosef Lamdan, has fascinating insights and opinions on last year's "siege" at the Nativity basilica in Bethlehem, leading Catholic personalities in the Holy Land, the efforts by the Holy See to build friendly relations with the world of Islam, and the future of Vatican-Israeli relations. A good read.
