Democratic 2016 Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, a committed socialist with a controversial background, has been found to strike up friendships with those who hate Israel, and once again, has become friendly with another radical Islamist.

According to the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT), Sanders secured five seats on the party’s platform committee, with one immediately going to James Zogby, a staunch Palestinian advocate and critic of Israel.

IPT reported that last month, in which they focused on Sanders’ reliance on Linda Sarsour as a campaign surrogate. Sarsour also is a Palestinian activist with a history of vitriolic anti-Israel statements.

IPT reported that she stated, “Nothing is creepier than Zionism,” and she also wrote on Twitter about the idea that Jews can return to their ancestral homeland as a refuge from global anti-Semitism. “To Sarsour, that ideal is racist, “said IPT.

IPT went on to say that with Memorial Day weekend’s approach brings to mind another prominent Sanders supporter, Zahra Billoo, who has repeatedly expressed discomfort with the holiday. “Many of our troops are engaged in terrorism,” she wrote in June 2012. Billoo heads the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) San Francisco office.

IPT reported through an investigation that CAIR has roots in a Hamas-support network created by the Muslim Brotherhood in America, internal documents and eyewitness accounts show.

Two weeks ago, Billoo made it clear her views about American troops have not changed, questioning the holiday’s value: “You think we should honor people who commit war crimes?” she asked an incredulous questioner. She “proudly stands by” her opinion, she also wrote.

IPT stated, “Despite these extreme views, or perhaps because of them, Billoo appears to be playing a significant role in the Sanders campaign. Her social media accounts are filled with pro-Sanders messages… including repeated reminders about the registration deadline to be eligible for June 7 California primary. She was granted backstage access to a Sanders rally last week in San Jose where she was photographed with the candidate.”
