Mideast Jordan Pope Francis

Lebanese Maronite Patriarch Cardinal Bechara Rai, center, welcomed by Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem Fouad Twal, right, after he arrived for the East Patriarchs Council dinner at the Latin Church, one day before Pope Francis' visit to Jordan and West Bank on May 24, in Amman, Jordan, Friday, May 23, 2014. Cardinal Bechara Rai, the first leader of Lebanon's largest Christian sect, the Maronite Catholic Church, to visit Jerusalem since Israel captured the city's eastern sector. Lebanon bans its citizens from visiting Israel or having business dealings with Israelis. Underscoring the sensitive political nature of the trip, Rai’s plans to visit Israel have drawn criticism. He angrily walked out of an interview with France 24 on Friday while in Amman, after the reporter pressed him on the motives for his visit. (AP Photo / Mohammad Hannon)
