Bernie Sanders' campaign manager had written positively of a monster who had called for another Holocaust.
"During his time at ThinkProgress, Faiz Shakir had repeatedly attacked the Jewish State, endorsing the Hamas aid flotilla to Gaza and attacking Israel’s attempts to defend itself against terrorists”…While the Harvard Islamic Society’s affiliation with the Muslim Brotherhood’s MSA is somewhat vague….HIS was co-founded by Yusuf Ibish, the father of Hussein Ibish, who is a veteran pro-terrorist and anti-Israel activist, and Syed Hossein Nasr, an Islamic philosopher and opponent of the United States and Israel, who claims to be able to trace his ancestry back to Mohammed. During Faiz Shakir’s time there, HIS was presided over by Zayed Yasin, who became infamous for his “My American Jihad” speech….In 2000, The Harvard Islamic Society held an Islamic Awareness Week and Faiz Shakir served as the co-chair for the week’s events. One of those events included a fundraiser for the Holy Land Foundation, a group which acted as the fundraising arm for Hamas in the United States…. Zayed Yasin’s defense of the Holy Land Foundation made it quite clear that he was familiar with its true mission."
"Shakir also co-authored the “Fear Inc.” report, “which implicitly claimed that Islamophobia was the product of a Jewish conspiracy, and wrote positively about the Tunisian Islamist Al-Nahda Party and its genocidal head, Sheikh Rashid Ghannouchi, who has engaged in blatant anti-Semitism, and has said, ‘There are no civilians in Israel. The population—males, females and children—are the army reserve soldiers, and thus can be killed.'”
