The paper informs us:
"For more than two years Yasin, not to be confused with the Labour MP with a similar name, shared anti-semitic posts and 9/11 conspiracy theories, praised a homophobic preacher and described his former leader Tony Blair as a “child-killer”.
His Twitter feed, now removed, suggests he was working for Labour when he made most of the posts.
Labour has been riven by allegations of anti-semitism among members and activists, but Yasin is believed to be the first paid member of staff to be implicated."According to the paper, Yasin in 2014 wrote:
“US imperialism needs Israel to keep the masses permanently at war”, accusing the Jewish state of “genocide”.In 2015, the paper claims, he
"shared a cartoon showing the BBC and CNN ignoring butchered Palestinians while training their cameras on a crying baby with a Star of David round its neck."In 2016, it alleges, he shared a video on the“Rothschilds, the world’s most wicked and wealthiest family” and
'shared a post from the Lord Dreadnought site, headlined with a quote from the actor Mel Gibson, “Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world.” Attacking “Zionist madness”, the post showed two people laughing uproariously at the suggestion that anyone else could be to blame, in the line “when someone tells me it’s not the Jews”.'He also allegedly shared a post headed “Why Israel is a problem”, which stated that
'“due to Holocaust propaganda” America had provided Israel with $233.7bn in aid and allowed it a nuclear arsenal. He shared a picture showing a rabbi next to the words: “Goyim [non-Jews] were born only to serve us. They have no place in the world — only to serve the people of Israel.”'In 2017 he 'shared a post saying western governments had “lied about 9/11”.'
'Asked whether he denied sharing the posts, Yasin said: “I’m not aware. Before I make any comments I need to check.” Asked about the Mel Gibson post, he said: “I don’t agree with that.”
A Labour spokesman said: “We take all allegations seriously and fully investigate them in accordance with our rules and procedures.”'
