Brooklyn lawmaker blasts Rep. Omar, says ‘Palestine does not exist’

A Brooklyn lawmaker set off a social media storm Wednesday by denying the existence of Palestine and accusing Rep. Ilhan Omar of being an anti-Semite.

“Palestine does not exist,” tweeted Councilman Kalman Yeger, who represents Midwood and other neighborhoods with large Jewish populations.

“There, I said it again. Also, Congresswoman Omar is an anti-Semite. Said that, too. Thanks for following me.”

The tweet was a direct response to a post by Zainab Iqbal, a writer for the blog Bklyner, who had posted a story she wrote in March 2018 citing Yeger’s previous anti-Palestine remarks.
