This is odd and surprising. It would seem most likely that the Pope wanted a secretary from the Islamic world to show his favorable view of Islam, and is unaware of Father Yoannis Lahzi Gaidos previous statements.

Here is Blazing Cat Furs modified Google translation of a German-language article: The Popes new Coptic secretary: Islam is a culture of death, Blazing Cat Fur, April 29, 2014 (thanks to Jamal):

For a MSM that seems to be fascinated with this Pope, this intriguing factoid should be headlines.
Now you see it, now you don’t.
Pope Benedict on Islam.
"Among the friends of the new secretary is another well-known Egyptian, the famous Muslim Magdi Cristiano Allam, a journalist and writer who converted to Christianity, and was baptized by Benedict XVI at the Easter Vigil in 2008 in St. Peters Basilica."
A good sign, for those who have eyes to see.
