She presents a portrait of Islam so thoroughly bent on destruction and domination that it is unrecognizable to those who study or practice the religion. New York Times (subscription, free)

Dear all,

I fail to understand the meaning in above. Could you please tell me what the bold part is modifying? Thanks.

    It modifies portrait. The picture she presents of Islam is so distorted that followers of Islam can't even recognize it as being a picture of themselves and their faith.

    Thanks, Mr Copyright. I've got it.

    One more question: Does "so thoroughly bent on destruction and domination" modify "Islam"?
