Mexico Discovers Islam
A new generation of Muslims is introducing Islam
By Michelle Al-Nasr
Mexico may be well on its way to a monotheistic revolution. This new trend is
emerging from recent developments, and reflects a similar change evident in
other South American nations - people are embracing Islam by the thousands,
jettisoning the Catholicism imposed upon their ancestors in Spain.
Mexico has a rich history. The people of pre-Columbian Mexico, the Mayans, led a life similar to Native American Indians and were pantheists who relied upon high priests to mediate with their nature gods. Locked in wars and short of food, they gradually were wiped out and replaced by the Aztecs. These people believed in a polytheistic religion based on the world's constant creation and destruction. Their religion taught them that disasters could be averted only through warfarre and human sacrifice. By the sixteenth century, the Aztecs ruled a large part of Mexico.
In the early 1500's, Spanish conquistadors from Cuba and Spain came to
pillage Mexico's natural resources - namely gold - and find glory. Cortez, the
most infamous conquistador, posed as an Aztec god to mystify and trick people
into joining forces with him. He conquered the Aztecs in less than 3 years, and
set up "New Spain."
