Israel got backing from a pro-Israel Imam Mohamad Tawhidi on Jerusalem Day.
“We build a Mosque on top of their Solomon’s Temple, yet they’re the invaders. Explain how that makes any sense,” he tweeted.
Mohamad Tawhidi is an Iranian-Australian Muslim religious leader and self-declared Islamic reformer. He was born in Iran, and immigrated to Australia when he was 12.
Tawhidi visited the Five Towns and Brooklyn last month with former NYS Assemblyman Dov Hikind. On that visit, he insisted that Muslims had no claim to Jerusalem. “A verse in the Koran that refers to a journey by Muhammad from Mecca to ‘Al-Aqsa Mosque’ cannot mean the mosque by that name now in Jerusalem because today’s Al-Aqsa was built after Muhammad’s death, during the second Caliphate of Umar,” he said.
“The Koran couldn’t have referred to this place – it didn’t exist.”
Al-Aqsa Mosque means “the farthest mosque.”
We built a Mosque on top of their Solomon’s Temple, yet they’re the invaders. Explain how that makes any sense.

Tawhidi said that when he challenged his teachers regarding the Al-Aqsa Mosque, he was told not to pursue the matter.
While terrorists in Gaza rained down hundreds of rockets on Israeli civilians recently, freshmen congresswomen Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) spoke out in defense of Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad. In response, Tawhidi accused Tlaib of being a spokesperson for terrorists.
“Are you an American Congresswoman or the Hamas Ambassador to the US? Your agenda is getting really stinky,” he wrote on Twitter.
SimchasSpot.com has previously published a video of Tawhidi, where he describes what occurred in his life that made him stop hating Jews.
I’m proud to call @Imamofpeace Imam Tawhidi a personal friend as well as a friend of the Jewish people and an advocate for a peaceful humanity. He’s someone who has well internalized the lessons of #neveragain and has much to teach people from all faiths and backgrounds. #mensch https://t.co/WeyIK65o7h
