Ultra conservative Ayatollah Messbah Yazdi [1] is invited to the Waterloo university by the Mennonites [2].A petition [3] has been launched to protest about this invitation.”We're not against dialogue but the Mennonites[Waterloo University] are naive if they think they can open one with these people,” says Haideh Moghissi, a York University sociologist who with 17 others signed a protest letter sent to the university.
