In a recent interview, Grand Ayatollah Ahmad Husseini Al-Baghdadi is quoted as saying “But if they still refuse—then we fight them, and we abduct their women and destroy their churches—this is Islam!… Come on, learn what Islam is, are you even a Muslim?!”
Al-Baghdadi is a Marja, a “source of emulation” for Shia Muslims, living in Iraq. He is a powerful voice of radical leadership for the Muslim faith. He makes it very clear, Islam cannot co-exist with any other faith.
He said, “If they are people of the book [Jews and Christians] we demand of them the jizya—and if they refuse, then we fight them. That is if he is Christian. He has three choices: either convert to Islam, or, if he refuses and wishes to remain Christian, then pay the jizya [and live according to dhimmi rules].”
If you have ever wondered what is in the minds of radical Islamist and the terrorist they train, you may not be able to relate. But read this chilling passage from an interview with Al-Baghadi in 2006.
“If the objective and subjective circumstances materialize, and there are soldiers, weapons, and money – even if this means using biological, chemical, and bacterial weapons – we will conquer the world, so that ‘There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah’ will be triumphant over the domes of Moscow, Washington, and Paris.”
Al-Baghdadi emphasized the need for Muslims to wage offensive jihad “is not the opinion of Ahmad al-Husseini al-Baghdadi… This is the word of Allah!”
Author’s note: This is not an unusual occurrence, radical Ayatollahs keep this rhetoric flowing constantly. These are powerful leaders. Our purpose in writing this is to remind the reader of how extreme these people are. This Grand Ayatollah is supposedly one to be emulated. Hundreds of thousands of people will take his orders.
