Muslim camps are spreading in the U.S. to help kids 'be proud of who they are'
by Abigail Hauslohner
It was the last day of Camp Ramadan, and a sea of smiling parents had their arms outstretched, holding up more than a dozen cellphones to capture all of the song and dance and children's humor contained in the end-of-camp assembly. And onstage, a normally polite and bookish 11-year-old was channeling Donald Trump.
"As a leader, who do you wish to serve?" a child, playing the role of debate interviewer, asked the boy's character — a certain political candidate with the alias of Ronald McDonald.
"I wish to serve my very fantastic self," answered Amir-Abbas, 11, provoking peals of laughter from the parents. Money, he told the interviewer, is the key to great leadership — and he had lots of it.
