Anti-Islam Speaker To Make Stop in St. Cloud
ST. CLOUD -- A critic of Islam plans is planning a speaking tour in central Minnesota this week.
Usama Dakdok will speak in Little Falls, Burtrum, Avon and St. Cloud.
Dakdok, founder of the Florida-based Straight Way of Grace Ministry, travels the country giving speeches about his fears that Islam is a dangerous cult. He says that the Quran does not teach love or peace and Islam teaches followers to kill non-believers.
Dakdok's appearances in other Minnesota and North Dakota cities, including Grand Forks and Bagley, have sparked protests. Police were called to his 2014 appearance in Bagley, where a Muslim woman said Dakdok and the audience harassed her.
The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations says Dakdok's speeches jeopardize Muslims' safety.
