    Long Island waiter rebelling against his pastor father terrorized guests at a Jewish wedding reception, blasting a recording of a pro-Palestinian rally that included Arabic chants through the DJ's microphone, authorities said today.

    Stephen Buttafuoco, 23, was charged with a aggravated harassment as a hate crime for allegedly blaring "Allahu akbar," Arabic for "God is great" - scaring the over 700 wedding guests who were wrapping up the party at the Woodbury Jewish Center around 1 a.m. Jan. 4., Nassau cops said. Buttafuoco, who was arrested Friday and is not related to the infamous Long Island lothario Joey Buttafuoco, allegedly "admitted he did this with the intent of disrespecting the [Jewish] religion," according to court papers.

    He was arraigned today in Nassau County District Court and released on $1,500 bail. He's no terrorist, lawyer Thomas Spreer insisted - just a confused kid trying to rebel against his minister father. "He did a foolish and impulsive act," Spreer claimed. "He's not a radical. He didn't even know they were on the air. He feels absolutely horrendous."

    The Queens College creative-arts student had been at a pro-Palestinian rally in Manhattan a day before the wedding, and made a recording of the chant on his cellphone. Buttafuoco thought he was just playing it for a friend, and didn't realize it would be blared to the whole reception, his lawyer said.

    Morrell Caterers, which handles weddings in three temples across Long Island, including the Woodbury Jewish Center, said they fired Buttafuoco on the spot. "We took appropriate action. We fired the gentleman in question and we called the police," said co-owner Scott Morrell, who declined to say when police were called.

    Spreer said his client was no anti-Semite, and has worked for Morrell Caterers for about two years without any problem. "He was just quietly rebelling against his dad," Spreer said. Dan Buttafuoco is an ex-Marine who serves as a minister at the Gateway Life Center, a Pentecostal church in Babylon, LI, and an Israel supporter.

    Hate crime seems a bit extreme. Why not just "disturbing the peace"? Or harassment. And obviously the guy will have lost his job, and have terrible references.

    The article says he is not. Funny how that name just sticks.. kinda like the Bobbit name. People will always associate Bobbit with Loreena Bobbit.
