An Iranian cleric recently claimed in a sermon that he is responsible for converting Hitler’s grandson to Islam.

The cleric, a leading imam in Mahmoud Abad, a small city in northern Iran, claimed in his most recent Friday prayer address the he is responsible for converting Hitler’s grandson, who he did not mention by name.

"When I asked him [Hitler’s grandson] why he chose Islam, he answered because he found Iranians altruistic and family-oriented people," the imam said, according to an independent translation of his original Farsi language remarks, which were published on an Iranian website.
