El surgir del Musulmán en Cuba

Desde que Fidel Castro prohibió la religión al tomar el control de Cuba en 1959, la mayoría de la población en la Isla es católica. Cuando el Papa Juan Pablo II visitó Cuba en 1998, hubo un pequeño porcentaje de cubanos que supusieron que quizás el gobierno se estaría volviendo más tolerante a la religión. ¿Aceptarían también el Islam?

Since Fidel Castro banned religion when he took control of Cuba in 1959, the majority of the population on the island is Catholic. By the time Pope John Paul II visited Cuba in 1998, there was a small percentage of Cubans who figured that the government was becoming more tolerant of other religions. Could they be more accepting of Islam?
