"Imam of Peace" Fights Islamist Extremism

(JNS) David Isaac - Imam Mohammad Tawhidi, an Islamic scholar and thinker, has dedicated his life to fighting Islamic extremism. Tawhidi, who describes himself as the "Imam of Peace," has said, "Palestine is Jewish land" and that he doesn't believe in Islamophobia, as "phobia is an irrational fear. Fearing ISIS is not irrational." He has criticized Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) as "absolute frauds and Islamists" who "promote hatred against the Jewish people." He is "a passionate defender" of the Jews and in 2019, he visited Auschwitz "to take a stand against antisemitism." Tawhidi has more than 800,000 followers on Twitter alone. Tawhidi was born in Iran, where he "was completely radicalized, and willing to kill anyone who spoke a single word against [Supreme Leader] Ali Khamenei, whom I saw as the link between myself and God." However, he became aware of the Islamic regime's corruption and eventually switched sides ideologically. He says, "The Islam of the regime in Iran is 100% antisemitic in its core ideology." But "if you look at the UAE and other Abraham Accords countries, it's not like that. The UAE embraced Israel, embraced the Jewish communities....Befriending Jews is not against my God. It is definitely what God wants."
