There is a plan underway to build a Muslim youth camp in North Liberty, Iowa, which is in Johnson County. Iowa City and the University of Iowa are in Johnson County.
James Fulford writes: One wonders, aside from religious instruction, a Muslim Youth Camp will have for the campers to do? Riflery was fun when I was a kid, and now there's paintball, (and backpacking, of course) but probably not pottery, which might lead to idolatry.
"Muslim community leaders in the Twin Cities and across the nation have monitored the debate over the camp, and view its approval as a key victory for religious tolerance in post-9/11 America." (July 3, 2003, Star Tribune)
Of course, what they mean is tolerance of Islam—they're not for tolerance as such.
