Incident at Upper East Side Food Cart

A former State Department official has been caught on video making offensive remarks at a food cart on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The incident took place at the Adam Halal Food Cart on Second Avenue and 83rd Street.

Video Shows Offensive Rhetoric

Cell phone footage captured the ex-State Department official, whose name has not been disclosed, making inflammatory statements at the food cart attendant. The video shows him saying, "I’m gonna put big signs here that say, ‘This guy believes in Hamas," "You’re a terrorist, you support terrorism," and "If we killed 4,000 Palestinian kids, you know what, it wasn’t enough."

Details of the Encounter

The video does not show what led up to the intense interaction between the ex-official and the food cart attendant. According to a translator, the ex-official approached the attendant and accused him of supporting Hamas when he mentioned he was from Egypt.

Food Cart Owners Respond

The owners of the Adam Halal Food Cart have expressed their disappointment with the ex-official's behavior. They have stated that this is not the first time he has approached the cart in a provocative manner.

Growing Tensions and Antisemitic Incidents

The incident comes amid growing tensions over the conflict in the Middle East. The Anti-Defamation League has documented a 316% surge in antisemitic incidents in the United States in the month following the war compared to the same period in 2022.

Celebrities Called Out for Insensitive Comments

The incident involving the ex-official is not the only instance of offensive comments being made about the conflict. Celebrities, including Pete Davidson, Dave Chappelle, Melissa Barrera, and Jamie Lee Curtis, have also faced criticism for their remarks.

Hopes for Resolution and Reflection
