March 3, 2010
Hudson Institute

Hudson Institute holds forum to launch book focused on the struggle of moderate Muslims against Islamism

WHO: Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, president and founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD) is a contributing writer to the newly released book The Other Muslims: Moderate and Secular (Palgrave Macmillan). The book is edited by Hudson Institute Senior Fellow and Director of the Center for Eurasian Studies Zeyno Baran. The Forum will feature Zeyno Baran, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser and Hedieh Mirahmadi, President of the World Organization for Resource Development and Education. Juan Zarate, former Deputy National Security Advisor for Counterterrorism and CBS News National Security Analyst, will moderate. Hudson Institute CEO Kenneth Weinstein will introduce.

The Other Muslims represents a unique effort to differentiate between Islam and Islamism. It is a collection of essays by moderate Muslims from Europe and the United States, who all agree that Westerners place democracy and universal human rights at grave risk if they ignore the political-ideological threat Islamists pose through their narrow interpretation of Islam.
