Paul Kamolnick, Al Qa’ida and the Islamic State, February 11 -17

This is part four of my series, “Islam 101:  Meet Your Muslim Neighbor.”  One of the ways to combat Islamophobia is to be clear about the differences between Muslims and violent psychopaths who use religion as a cover for their terrorism.   Paul Kamolnick is a professor in the department of sociology and anthropology at East Tennessee State University. He specializes in Classical Social Theory, Contemporary Social Theory, Political Islam, Counterterrorism, and the Al Qa’ida and Islamic State Organizations.  He writes monographs for the US Army War College.  He published  Delegitimizing Al-Qaeda: A Jihad-Realist Approach in 2012.  His latest monograph will be available for free download in the Spring of 2016. It is entitled The Al-Qa’ida Organization and the Islamic State Organization: History, Doctrine, Modus Operandi, and the US Strategy to Permanently Defeat Terrorism in the Name of Sunni Islam.  He lays out his case in part one of a two-part conversation.
