From blog correspondent Lee Penn
Greek Orthodox and Melkite Catholics rebuild church together in Syria
Lee Penn: Here is an instance of true ecumenism. One other thing leaped out at me:

According to Syrian law, when a new community is being developed, the
government allocates a plot of land for Christians, free of charge, so a
church can be built. The thinking behind this ensures a just and equitable balance
between newly constructed mosques and churches.


Lee: Remember, the Syrian government is part of the US-designated 'Axis of Evil'.
So ... go figure. Maybe they are less evil than the Israelis or the Bush Administration say that they are.
