    Amid calls for City Councilman Kalman Yeger’s resignation from the immigration committee, one of New York City’s largest newspapers has thrown its hat into the court of public opinion, agreeing that Palestine does not exist.

    An editorial in today’s Daily backed up Yeger’s assertion that Palestine does not exist with a history lesson, noting that a proposed two state solution that would have created a Palestinian state was rejected by Arabs five times – in 1937, 1947, 1967, 2007 and 2008.

    Criticizing what it referred to as the “speech police,” the Daily News rejected calls by both Mayor Bill de Blasio and Speaker Corey Johnson for Yeger’s resignation from the committee, categorizing the idea as “nuts.”

    The editorial also noted that Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar was rightfully allowed to keep her committee assignment even after making statements that were far more inflammatory that Yeger’s now famous tweet saying that Palestine does not exist.

    The Daily News supported Yeger in the November election, describing him as “pragmatic” and “with it.”
