Sanders Campaign says pro-Bernie imam's remarks are 'offensive and toxic'-

The Bernie Sanders campaign distanced itself Tuesday from “offensive and toxic” remarks from a Muslim cleric who spoke at a rally for the presidential candidate this weekend.

Faiz Shakir, the Sanders campaign manager, issued a statement responding to resurfaced video from November 2015 of Imam Sayed Hassan Qazwini asserting that ISIS “somehow is connected to Israel.”

“The campaign has been made aware of offensive and toxic past statements by Imam Qazwini,” Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir toldWashington Post columnist Josh Rogin.
