Former NSA Chief Arrested on Hate Charges Against Halal Vendor

Stuart Seldowitz, a bigot who was once a high-ranking US government official, has been arrested after he was caught on camera in New York City hurling racist vitriol at a halal food vendor, calling him a “terrorist “ and even said that the death of 4,000 Palestinian children in Gaza by the Israeli regime “wasn’t enough.”

Seldowitz, 64, previously served as deputy director of the US State Department’s Office of Israel and Palestinian Affairs. He was arrested on Wednesday, November 22nd on charges of “aggravated harassment, hate crime stalking, stalking causing fear, and stalking at a place of employment,” New York Police said in a statement.

“A 24-year-old male victim stated to police that an individual approached him at his work place multiple times and made anti-Islamic statements multiple times on different dates causing the victim to feel afraid and annoyed,” police said.

Seldowitz also served as the acting director for the National Security Council South Asia Directorate under the administration of former President Barack Obama.

Following Seldowitz’s actions, New Yorkers united to support the vendor by lining up at his cart to buy food from him in Manhattan’s Upper East Side neighborhood on Tuesday.
