Islam conference, hosting controversial speakers, sparks protest
Dean of Students Stephanie Ives foreshadowed the inevitable contention in Kiva Auditorium at the Islamic Apartheid Conference, sponsored by Temple University Students for Intellectual Freedom, yesterday, April 23.
"I ask you all to keep the principles of free speech and civil discourse in mind tonight," Ives urged the packed auditorium prior to the conference's start.
Featuring controversial panelists Robert Spencer, director of the blog "Jihad Watch," Pamela Geller, former-Muslim Nonie Darwish and Sudanese refugee Simon Deng, the conference addressed issues such as honor killing and Jihad in the Arab-world, and specifically focused on Islam's contribution to said issues.
