New York - On a flight back from a trip home to Mexico, I warily opened an old copy of Newsweek en Español I had found in my aunt's house in Chihuahua. The picture of a Muslim woman in hijab graced its cover and the feature story was titled "The Muslim World In Mexico: Islam is the Religion that Gains Most Followers in the World and Our Country Joins this Tendency." I was not sure what to expect.
