'The War on Islam' Released in U.S., South Africa

A second edition of "The War on Islam" is expected to be released next week in the United States and South Africa during the author's two-week lecture tour -- sponsored by the Human Rights Foundation, South Africa -- to Johannesburg, Cape Town, and Durban.

"Excellent book," says the foundation's chairman, Dr. M. Adam, it "dispels the myths and commonly held misconceptions about Islam."

Containing 54 new pages, this edition of "The War on Islam," begins with the Persian Gulf War of 1991, and ends with the September 11, 2001 attack on America. It provides alternative perspectives on major events concerning Islam and Muslims. "With some exceptions," says the author, Enver Masud, "the real war is neither a war between different races nor different faiths. It is a war between those driven by greed, and those seeking justice and peace."

The Human Rights Foundation will distribute 5000 copies of "The War on Islam" in South Africa. "All government officials and embassies, and all . . . Muslim organizations and other key organizations," will recieve a copy, and so will "schools and non-profit associations," according to Dr. M. Adam.

The editors of Impact International, a magazine published in England, say: "Enver Masud gives example after example of disinformation and lies, cover-ups and double standards."

The All India Conference of Intellectuals says: "The contents of the book are an eye opener."

Mr. Masud, is founder and CEO of The Wisdom Fund -- -- which promotes social justice and interfaith understanding by disseminating the truth about Islam. His analyses and commentary on events affecting the Muslim world have been published in newspapers and magazines including Washington Report On Middle East Affairs, Eastern Times, Impact Magazine, The Minaret, Nation & World, Muslim Observer.

Trained in engineering management, Mr. Masud worked as a consultant for the World Bank, EBRD and USAID in Albania, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Indonesia, Latvia, Pakistan, Russia, Tanzania, and was employed in management positions by the U.S. government, the District of Columbia, and the State of Iowa.

The Persian Gulf War, ignited his interest in foreign affairs, and led to his founding in 1995 of The Wisdom Fund -- a nonprofit corporation, which hosts visitors from 90 plus countries.
