His commentary, however, is as predictable as it is banal, with his tweets and Facebook posts deliberately manufactured to earn likes, shares and retweets from a specific audience in mind – those who hate Muslims.

His biggest cheerleaders include the Western far-right, Hindu nationalists, ultra-Zionists, and New Atheists, which explains why his every comment reads as an endorsement for US President Trump, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the state of Israel, and notorious anti-Muslim bigots such as the now imprisoned Tommy Robinson.

Islamophobia continues to provide a rag-to-riches opportunity for every con-artist and charlatan, and Tawhidi is cashing in – and at the same time the media continues to cash in on Islamophobia. It's one of those tragic circle of life things, unfortunately.
