Ed Koch wants Dennis Prager kicked off the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Council. The former New York City mayor plans to ask the council’s advisory board to remove the columnist and radio host because Prager condemned Keith Ellison, a Muslim who recently was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives from Minnesota, for saying he will take the oath of office with his hand on a Koran, in a private ceremony after the mass swearing-in.
