Assuming, to a lot of people, that Islam is the enemy, is it not wise to learn about said enemy? Is there a greater disadvantate than not knowing one's opponent?This ticks me off. Don't spend the taxpayer's money on this crap!
To put simply, and here it is, where the money is, SPORTS.
Coaches spend hours analysing videos of the next football, baseball, hockey, basketball, boxing opponents ahead of a match. They don't do it because they love their opponent, no, they do it to detect weak and strong points so as to exploit the former and resist the latter. If it applies to sports, surely, it applies to politics, conflicts and wars. If Europeans and the rest of the allies had read Mein Kampf, a lot of grief could've been averted.
