On October 3, 2003 The Daily Iowan reported that "Getting to Know Islam," a taped educational program on Public Access Television, is celebrating its fifth year of educating the Iowa community on stereotypes against Islam. "The show provides an outlet for people who want to find out about the faith of Islam," said Aman Aminzay, the president of the University of Iowa Muslim Student Association and force behind the 60-minute educational taped program." Many people are not aware that we believe in the same God as Christians and Jews and that we have a great respect for the prophet Jesus," he said. This year's programming will include the special "Jesus in the Quran."
