Muslim Group Calls for Cancellation of Controversial Speaker at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
by Carmel Delshad
Muslim Students and community leaders are protesting a controversial speaker at Embry-Riddle University. Activists organized a news conference Wednesday to highlight their concerns.
UCF Professor Jonathan Matusitz has previously controversially said, "coexistence with Islam is not possible." That got the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR, involved in an effort to cancel his appearance during a speaker series event this week.
Standing outside The Embry-Riddle Welcome Center, CAIR Florida Director Hassan Shibly says he has no problem with Matusitz, but doesn't think he should speak at a school where Muslim students may experience backlash.
