A Jewish councilman in New York City has lost his seat on the city’s immigration committee after tweeting, “Palestine does not exist,” which has led Linda Sarsour to declare a new day in the city as “anti-Palestinian, anti-Muslim comments” will not fly.

Mayor Bill de Blasio has chimed in, saying councilman Kalman Yeger should lose his committee seat if he doesn’t apologize.

It’s spreading.
