The last time Usama Dakdok was in Grand Forks, he was met by dozens of protesters.
The controversial speaker was told he was spreading messages of "hate" when he gave his first presentation at the Empire Arts Center in March. The event even prompted a group to refute his arguments with a "Meet Your Muslim Neighbor" program.
Dakdok returned Thursday night to the center to with a program he called "Rebuttal." He explained that he wanted to "rebuttal the rebuttal" of "Meet Your Muslim Neighbor," which was held at Sharon Lutheran Church in April.
