Shia Muslim Imam Mohamad Tawhidi criticized Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib for refusing to condemn Palestinian terror groups for the onslaught of more than 700 rockets fired into Israel this weekend that killed at least four Israelis and wounded dozens.

The Iranian-born Tawhidi, known as the “Imam of Peace,” is President of the Islamic Association of South Australia. “Remember that time [Omar] and [Tlaib] condemned Hamas’ terrorism?” Tawhidi tweeted. “Neither do I.”

Omar and Tlaib became the first U.S. Muslim congresswomen after the 2018 elections, and both have invited a great deal of controversy with vile comments regarding Jews and Israel.

Tawhidi has targeted the two several times who he has called “absolute frauds and Islamists,” according to The Jerusalem Post, and who “promote hatred against the Jewish people.”

“Ilhan does not believe that the Jewish people or the Jewish nation has the right to exist,” he said. “Shame on her and shame on those who voted for her and are staying silent. We must do everything that we can to promote peace, and make sure that the American government does not allow these people a platform.”

Instead of condemnation for the Hamas and Islamic Jihad groups who are responsible for the rocket fire from Gaza, Tlaib actually chose to instead slam the New York Times for their coverage of the airstrikes. In a retweet of Yousef Munayyer’s critical commentary on the NYT, she added, “When will the world stop dehumanizing our Palestinian people who just want to be free? Headlines like this & framing it in this way just feeds into the continued lack of responsibility on Israel who unjustly oppress & target Palestinian children and families. #FreePalestine

Hamas has claimed responsibility for the rocket attacks.

The Post reported that Tawhidi visited Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz earlier this year when he said, “Raise your voices against hatred.” They wrote …

Wearing a black t-shirt with the words #WeRemember imprinted in white, well-known Australian Imam Mohamad Tawhidi proudly posted about being the first Shia Imam “to pay his respects at Auschwitz.”

“It is very sad to see what is happening within in the American government. People like Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, absolute frauds and Islamists, promoting hatred against the Jewish people,” the Imam said in his post on Twitter while visiting the camp.
