Salam aleykum brothers and sisters.

Do you know if ibn Ishaq was a shia or sunni?

Because I thought that ibn Ishaq was a sunni, but then I read herehttp://www.answering-christian-claims.com/The-Problems-With-Ibn-Ishaq.htmlthat he was a shia and not reliable according to the sunni. I spoke to someone about the satanic verses. Ibn Ishaq wrote things about that too. I said that the sirat of ibn Ishaq isn't reliable. Now I am just confused. If ibn Ishaq his books are used by the shia, how can I defend the so called Satanic verses? Are those reports about the Satanic verses non-authentic? 

and I speak with a ex-Muslim about the tafsir of surah 9. He said that Ibn Ishaq his tafsir was that the Muslims attacked the non-muslim. I really need tafsir of sunni and shia that the Muslims were the ones that needed to protect themselves from the non muslims. I gave them some Quran verses that the non-Muslims broke their peace treaty. I have not yet been able to convince them because of the tafsir of ibn Kathir. I showed them the tafsir of ayatollah Mahdi Pooya. This guy knew him personally and he says that he isn't reliable. Can you help me out with these things? thank you?

There are a few different points you have raised in your post.

Regarding ibn Ishaq, I am not aware of him ever being considered as a Shi'i. It's true that the famous sunni muhadditheen avoided narrating from him but I don't think this was due to his aqidah, rather due to limitations or a lack of chains of narration. 

As for Shia tafaseer, you can refer to tafseer Al Qummi, tafseer Al Ayyashi, Al Tibyan or Majma al Bayan, among other works. I believe most of these are available on shiaonlinelibrary or other similar websites.
