Imam of Peace?

Written by Stephanie Ameiss

Imam Tawhidi or the “Imam of Peace” has gained acceptance and support in conservative Patriotic circles for speaking out against jihadis across the globe, including the United States.

Based on social media comments, many people believe Imam Tawhidi is someone to be trusted and supported because of what he says about certain muslims who are overtly anti-American and pro-sharia.

Understanding the Threat (UTT) is concerned Imam Tawhidi’s writings/comments are leading people to believe, as he states, there is another “version” of Islam different from the “extremists.” This creates a pseudo-reality and keeps citizens and leaders from understanding the true nature of the threat of Islam. More importantly, Tawhidi’s actions may be causing confusion allowing the Islamic Movement room to move forward while the non-muslim world spends time trying to find “moderate” muslims to save it.

In Islam, “peace” exists when the entire world is under Sharia.  

The purpose of Islam is to eliminate all areas of the earth not ruled by “Allah’s divine law”/sharia, which is known as the “House of War” in Islam. When the “House of War” is eliminated and the entire world is under the “House of Islam” ruled by sharia, then there will be PEACE.

The means to do this is called jihad or “warfare against non-muslims.” 

From Islamic elementary schools in Pakistan and Egypt, to Islamic junior high schools in America, to the most prestigious schools of Islamic jurisprudence in the world, including Al Azhar University, there is only ONE Islam taught because Islam teaches there is one Allah, one Koran, and one Mohammad.

Nowhere in “Allah’s divine law”/sharia – derived from the Koran and the sunna/the example of Islam’s “perfect man” Mohammad – does it state there are multiple “versions” of Islam.  Mohammad told muslims they must fight the non-muslims until they testify there is no god but Allah, and lying to non-muslims in obligatory if it advances Islam.

“When the Muslims commence battle, and they have surrounded a city or a fort, they are to invite the inhabitants to accept Islam, due to what is related by Ibn ‘Abbas ‘that the Prophet did not commence combat with a people without first inviting them to Islam.’”  [Al-Hidayah, A Classical Manual of Hanafi Law, “The Rules of Warfare”]

In Islam, the Tafsir is the authoritative book of sharia which legally defines every verse in the Koran. Regarding Koran 9:5 (“Fight and slay the unbelievers wherever you find them…”), the Tafsir legally defines the verse as follows: “…besiege them, and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush, do not wait until you find them. Rather, seek and besiege them in their areas and forts, gather intelligence about them in the various roads and fairways so that what is made wide looks ever smaller to them.  This way, they will have no choice, but to die or embrace Islam.”  (Tafsir, Ibn Kathir)

Two different flags for two different messages

Imam Tawhidi, however, claims he is a “peaceful moderate muslim in a society infested by extremist muslims.” The muslims he defines as being “extremists” are the same ones Islam teaches will achieve paradise – the ones obeying sharia and waging war against non-muslims.

Tawhidi’s website claims “Imam Tawhidi does not support Sharia Law, believes that the law of the land is superior to law of religion, and that violent Sharia Law must not be applied.”

All authoritatively published sharia condemns people who make such comments to death under the Law of Apostasy. Being an Imam, Imam Tawhidi is likely aware of this. Therefore, he is either ignorant of sharia and its authority in Islam or he is deceiving people.

If Tawhidi is deceiving people, why is he deceiving them?

Tawhidi often claims to be a bridge between the West and Islamic communities.  Muslim Brotherhood doctrine teaches the only reason muslims “build bridges” with non-Muslims is to subvert their mission and bring non-muslims over to Islam.

There is also evidence Imam Tawhidi is not who he claims to be.

Imam Tawhidi studied under Iran’s Grand Ayatollah Sayid Sadiq Husseini Shirazi.  Shirazi correctly believes the Islamic system of government requires women to be  covered from head to toe, and girls can marry at 9 years old.  The beliefs of Shirazi contradict what Tawhidi openly says when interviewed by the media, yet Tawhidi publicly demonstrates his admiration for Shirazi as evidenced from the photographs below.

Islam declared war against the West in general and the United States specifically. The largest part of this war is not being fought on the battlefield with tanks, artillery and infantry, nor on the streets against police with rifles and explosive vests.

Americans will be better prepared for what is coming if they learn what is already inside America. This war is a war of narratives versus the truth.

One narrative says “Islam is a religion of peace” and, despite the magnitude of the objective untruth of this statement, many people believe it. Opposing this narrative is the truth of core Islamic doctrine taught to muslims children all over the planet in Islamic schools.

In the war of narratives, the Islamic Movement seeks to present the image that the “moderate” muslims are a much better option than the violent jihadis of ISIS, Al Qaeda, Hamas, Hizbollah, et al, thus driving American leaders into the arms of “suit-wearing jihadis” with whom they can and do work.

They are not. 

Tawhidi flies two different flags (literally and figuratively), and does not support authoritative sharia. The “Imam of Peace” may very well believe he is a good muslim, but he is not speaking TRUTH about Islam/sharia.

“War is deceit.”  Mohammad (Bukhari Vol 4, Book 52, hadith 269)

Propaganda is necessarily made up of lies.  Truth is the only answer.

Only citizens armed with the truth about Islam and the modus operandi of the Global Islamic Movement can uncover the truth about people who self-identify themselves as “muslim” who claim to be Patriots or defenders of liberty, yet cling to and defend some mystical version of Islam.

Free people must defend their societies from the growing cancer of Islam, and reach out in wisdom and love to free muslims from a system which necessarily enslaves them.

  1. This new Millennium of Jihad is obviously being financed by oil money. An article on this topic would be much appreciated.

  2. Great article, Step hanie!

  3. Imam Tawhidi can best make his case as an EX-MUSLIM wearing ” Don’t Tread on Me” shirt, dropping the imam title while confessing that Jesus is Lord of his life and donating to Crescent Project. Stephanie, you have spoken well. Interfaith pastors, EU officials, US Supreme Court Justices, the Trump Administration, the US Congress, state legislators, and city councils need to read your article.

    How do we reach them?

    We need viral cartoons that quickly convey the UTT message along with thoughtful articles for those who read. The Left has reduced our attention span or of those whom we wish to reach. And political officials are extremely busy people who rely on aids to read and summarize. We need to go direct.

  5. Tawhidi is either full of taqiyah or he’s not a Muslum & doesn’t know it yet.

  6. I understand why he’s controversial, but have you actually heard him speak? He says many of the same things UTT does, chiefly that Islam the religion can NEVER be reformed, Sharia Law is horrible & he does not follow it. Why would Robert Spencer & Bill Warner voice support for his stance if he is just operating under tafsir? For those willing to hear him, these interviews are a good place to start, & I would hope the folks at UTT would listen/watch if they have not. I’ve seen him speak about the pedophilia issue in Islam & he was just as disgusted as any of us are at that. Also, even though he trained under that Imam, he has denounced those teachings.

    • UTT is well aware of Tawhidi’s speeches and writings. His role in the war is to create the believable narrative that there is a “different version” of Islam, which is exactly what he teaches – his version. “Peace…love…” and that those who follow real sharia are “extremists.” Your desire to find a moderate muslim seems to be clouding your judgment. For the record, Spencer is not on board with your comments. JG

    • Why then has he not declared that he is ‘apostate’ since you believe him to be honest? A gross contradiction. Clearly you are not conversant with Taquiya? Do please study it closely. If he were indeed genuine in what he appears to advocate, then he could not be a Muslim. Something stinks! Correction – all of it stinks.

  7. Imam of Peace appears to be a provocateur on behalf of Shiias and denigrating Sunnis and Hamas and Hezbollah. He seems to be aligned with a family that is in competition with the Ayatollah of Iran, perhaps. It is a bit murky. He appears comfortable being an ally to American and Australian patriots probably to reduce Sunni immigration and diminish the power of the Muslim Brotherhood. The benefactor would be Shiias in Iraq, perhaps.However, no is calling him an islamophobe, racist, bigot, or xenophobe, just yet. If Imam of Peace by some miracle wins this information war, some jihadi will rise to enforce sharia. Islam is immutable. All Muslims can do for peace is to walk away from Islam, a mass exodus would be very good.

  8. Great article.

  9. I always would post every chance I get that these so-called “reformists” are just as dangerous as any Muslim jihadist. In addition to Tawhid there is Muhammad Zuhdi Jasser and Qanta Ahmed and others who persist in self-identifying as Muslim yet attack the “extreme Islamists.” They pretend that there is a “kinder and gentler” Islam just because they are “kinder and gentler.” Wishing it doesn’t make it so and all they do is trick us dirty filthy kaffirs to be “tolerant” of the presence and infiltration of Islam into our society. They also make a good living going on the speakers’ circuit telling the dumb dhimmi conservatives what they want to hear because they desperately want to believe that there is an Islam which could actually be a legitimate religion. That’s a danger to our country since Islam is destined to conquer non-Muslim territory as described in the article above. These phony Muslims are a threat to all of us and no one ever challenges them whenever they are interviewed. This is the best description of the duality of Islam by Bill Warner: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H16oVZS53XY&t

    • First class! This explains to the dhimmi, if they will listen, how they are being openly deceived since very few have bothered to read the Koran or researched its myriad contradictions – read it one way ‘peace’ – read it another way, world conquest, and yet another? Ambiguity in every Sura. And not by accident. Bits from here, bits from there, confusion abounds – and if course that is exactly how they want it – obfuscation, double-talk, as though compiled by those who perform ‘Find the Queen’, film-flam men, snake oil carpetbaggers – the earliest con-men on the planet. And still the ‘mugs’ stand for it! As the man saud – “There’s one born every minute”.

      • Yes, I agree with you. The same holds true for Zuhdi Jasser. His brand of Islam does not exist and if he truly believes that Jihad and Islam’s supremacy are wrong, then why doesn’t he leave it. There is NO WAY to “reform” this evil hate filled supremest religion, and based on my studies since 9/11/2001, 18 years, the allah god is Satan. I find it hard to believe that Muhammad made up the verses in the Quran without the Greatest of Deceivers aiding him. If he did make up Islam, he is the greatest LIAR in history.

  10. Islamists know enough about the Greek Janus figure to present two faces to gullible dhimmi. To average leftists they present five or more faces of taqiyya with some interwoven with Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals and some interwoven with the Red Book of Antifa. They know quite well that New Khmer Rouge Antifa are convenient allies and converts if played well.

    One word: Taqiyya.
    The practice of deceit in support of Islam.

  12. Lord, give “repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ” to all muslims and all who cooperate with islam! Reveal all evil enough beforehand so no innocents are harmed and give a just prison sentence for every criminal act including all who refuse to alert the authorities beforehand and after!

  13. I can say this with 100% truth muslims have picked and chose phrases that. Were mis interpreted and muslims are never to be trusted. Bible code says muslims are evil ..there actions speak volums ..molan aabe

  14. A very pliable,useful metamorphosis. all presented perfectly for the target of the west, and the land of Israel, to assure the west they are trustworthy of a nuclear deal, and safe and free passage to any land of their choosing to finish their caliphate-ish goal to conquer the west and plant sharia law. The perfectly scripted ‘con job”…..all done under the mask of a religion and white as snow attire. Just really what everyone wants to hear, relief from Islamic jihad stress, and the savage occurrences and missteps from the pages of the religious text that must remain and is only meant for the eyes of the faithful with their goal in clear view and loved by the Academy of fools.

  15. Any news on John and case update.
