Radical Islam, US Army & vs Ahmadiyya Islam on Christmas

At Gateway Pundit Jim Hoft brings us a story of yet another tolerant Imam: When you say: “Merry Christmas,” you are saying: “Congratulations on your false religion,” “Congratulations on your false understanding of life.” You are congratulating them on the most evil of polytheism and heresy.
