‘Real Islam’ Is Kidnapping Christian Women, Forcing Conversions and Destroying Churches, Controversial Shiite Ayatollah Claims

Grand Ayatollah Ahmad al-Baghdadi, the leading Shiite cleric of Iraq, has claimed in an interview that “real Islam” consists of forcefully converting people into the faith, abducting Christian women, and destroying churches. The cleric’s comments stand in contrast to other Islamic leaders, who have condemned terroristic actions.
