Lebanese cardinal makes rare visit to Jerusalem despite controversy

Published: 05.25.14, 22:37 / Israel News

The leader of Lebanon's largest Christian sect has come to Jerusalem despite fierce criticism in Lebanon, which remains at war with Israel.

 

Cardinal Bechara Rai, head of the Maronite Catholic Church, is the first Lebanese religious leader to set foot in Jerusalem since Israel captured the traditionally Arab eastern sector in 1967.

 

The Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, confirmed the cardinal had come to Jerusalem as part of a group of senior clergy accompanying Pope Francis on a Holy Land pilgrimage. (AP)
