Controversial speaker planned at symposium on Islam in Ypsilanti
by Mark Hicks
The Ann Arbor-based Ave Maria Radio plans to hold the "Is Islam a Religion of Peace?" symposium from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at Eastern Michigan University's Student Center, 900 Oakwood, Ypsilanti.
Featured debaters include Robert Spencer, the controversial director of the Jihad Watch website.
His writing, which has been called anti-Muslim, was quoted in a manifesto by the man accused of the Norway killing spree in 2011, the New York Times and the Anti-Defamation League reported. The British government this year banned Spencer from entering, according to BBC News, and a Southern Poverty Law Center report has listed him as among an "Anti-Muslim Inner Circle."
