Ramachandra B. Abhyankar makes an excellent point in a recently published letter in the Tribune Star:
Caliph Ibrahim of the Islamic State has a doctorate in Islam. To understand the leadership of the Islamic Caliphate, future military and political leaders of the United States ought to be trained in the Jihad and Sharia doctrines of Islam. These political doctrines should be taught in political science departments in universities across the United States. Currently Islam is taught in only the religious studies departments of universities; this must change.
The Center for the Study of Political Islam in Nashville, Tenn., has published several books that can support courses in Jihad and Sharia in university political science departments.
