    CAIR Threatens to Sue YAF for Hosting 'Jihad Watch' Director

    (CNSNews.com) - The Young America's Foundation (YAF) is being threatened with legal action for including Robert Spencer, the author of several books on terrorism and Islam, in its line-up of speakers this week in Washington, D.C.

    Spencer is scheduled to speak Thursday afternoon at George Washington University as part of YAF's 29th National Conservative Student Conference. His topic is entitled "The Truth About the Council on American Islamic Relations." This same organization, CAIR, is demanding that YAF either withdraw its invitation to Spencer or take alternative steps to prevent any false remarks from being made.

    "We will not be intimidated by radical Islamic thugs," Mattera said. "Not only will we let Robert Spencer speak, but we will invite even more people to hear him. We are not going to fluctuate the conference just to suit their demands."
