There is no peace in the Mideast — or Midtown, at least not as long as filthy Muslim halal food vendors are around. FYI: Halal vendors get the majority of health code violations in NYC (See link below).
NY Post A Jewish kosher-food purveyor says he’s being prevented from settling in the heart of Manhattan by the “halal mafia.” Yisroel Mordowitz insists he just wants to peacefully peddle sandwiches piled high with brisket or pastrami from his Holy Rollers cart in the lucrative Rockefeller Center area, 48th Street off Sixth Avenue.
But a group of irate Muslim competitors block the kosher vendor from setting up on the sidewalk, literally squatting on the curb or placing umbrellas and beverage cartons to cordon off the space.
STOP shouts Muslim halal food vendor
“This guy is hungry — hungry for money,” bellowed 48th Street Sabrett-slinger Mohamed Mossad, who along with nearly a dozen others successfully kept Mordowitz off the block. “I have a family, too!”
“Why doesn’t he go to 47th Street?” Mossad shouted, referring to the Hasidim-heavy Diamond District. “He’s just coming to this particular spot, and he wants to grab it from me — and kill me, actually. Kill my business.” (And that would be a bad thing, because why?)
Typical Kosher food cart fare
The Holy Rollers adhere to strict kosher guidelines, and their Muslim rivals sell halal food prepared in accordance with Islamic law. For both, pork is a no-no, but there are huge differences in how meat must be slaughtered and prepped. (Halal slaughterers don’t cut the spinal cord which causes the animal to suffer in agony for up to several minutes before he dies)
Escalating tensions so concerned Avram Wolpin, the mashgiach — or on-site supervisor who certifies food as kosher — that he feared a veritable falafel fatwa. He told Mordowitz he was worried he would “disappear.” After two unsuccessful attempts to work on Sixth, Mordowitz made his exodus southwestward to 35th Street and Ninth Avenue, near B&H Photo, the Hasidic-run electronics megastore.
Muslim thug threatening Jewish vendor
“I thought I could bring peace to Midtown,” lamented Mordowitz, 30, of Queens. “I’m not an enemy — I’m a friend.”
The Holy Rollers opened without incident on 48th Street on Monday, raked in about $2,000 on Tuesday from tourists and Midtown office workers, but were under blockade by Wednesday
“This is not Palestine!” one vendor shouted, according to Mordowitz. The kosher vender said, “They’re trying to say that the Jews in Israel are pushing people out, so don’t do it here.”
Typical halal food cart slop
Mordowitz said one rival even followed managing partner Yosef Salzbank around in a Jeep Cherokee, making sure he parked the cart far enough away. “I said, ‘Why are you terrorizing me?’ ” Mordowitz recalled.
But the halal hawkers say they’re not the haters. “He said I am a terrorist. He says I bombed the Twin Towers. That’s racist,” recalled Mossad, who insisted his objections have nothing to do with religion. (What race is Islam?)
Halal vendor (dirty hands, no gloves)
Licenses granted by the city do not specify where vendors must locate, but the city can force vendors to move for a variety of reasons, including being parked too close to a subway entrance.
Even though customers who eat strictly kosher food can’t eat halal (because of the barbaric way Muslims slaughter animals) — let alone a boiled wiener — a peace agreement, for now, seems remote, leaving the cart to wander the Midtown desert. “Running corner to corner like this,” Salzbank said. “It’s crazy.”
Take a look at the filthy Muslim halal food vendors in NYC
Apparently, so did most New Yorkers, judging by the tiny turnout. Notice how there are only close-up shots to disguise the fact that virtually nobody came out.

Justice for Deah, Yusor and Razan – this is a hate crime not a dispute over a parking spot.
CNN.com Religion Editor Daniel Burke reported that Craig Hicks, who is suspected of murdering three Muslim students, had previously written in defense of the Ground Zero mosque and criticized those who thought President Barack Obama was Muslim.
Breitbart “When you kind of pore through his Facebook page, you see dozens and dozens of posts making fun of religion in general, making fun of the idea of prayer, but I didn’t see anything that particularly pertained to Islam.
In fact, there are a couple of instances in which he seems to implicitly defend Islam, there’s a post from around the time when they wanted to build a mosque near Ground Zero in New York where he calls out conservative critics who didn’t want the plan to go forward saying, ‘hey, you guys are being hypocrites.
If you are allowed your freedom of worship, Muslims should be allowed, too.’ He also calls out conservatives who made–spread rumors about President Obama being a Muslim. He said, ‘so what if he is Muslim? It’s okay if we have a Muslim president.’ So, his views against religion are kind of, very anti-religious, but nothing specifically against Islam,” he stated.
On November 18, 2012, Hicks shared a picture reading “Suppose for a minute that Barack Obama is a Muslim. Article VI, Paragraph 3 of the United States Constitution specifically states that there is no religious test for any public office. So really, the problem isn’t the President. It’s that you are a bigot.”
Hicks also vehemently defended the construction of the Ground Zero mosque. On August 13, 2010 he expressed his agreement with President Obama supporting the building of the mosque. Six days later, he posted “Seems an overwhelming majority of Christians in this country feel that the Muslims are using the Ground Zero Mosque plans to’mark [sic] their conquest’ Bunch [sic] of hypocrites, everywhere I’ve been in this country there are churches marking the Christian conquest of this country from the Native Americans. Funny thing is the Christians did that while defying our Constitution, and got away with it!!”
Hicks’ most vehement defense of Islam came on August 30 of 2010. Hicks posted an article about a billboard put up by the Freedom from Religion Foundation being vandalized, with the comment “Once again, Christians have to push their beliefs on the rest of the world(much [sic] less our country which is against the law)!!
I don’t believe in Christianity at all, but I would never vandalize anything of theirs. Course neither would a Muslim, makes a person wonder which is more of a peaceful religion I believe!” After one of his friends asked Hicks if he considered the destruction of the World Trade Center on 9/11 to be “vandalism,” Hicks responded “Come on now [name omitted], you of all people are smart enough to know that those were extremists. They were not practicing Islam any more than Jim Jones and David Koresh practiced Christianity.”
