Pentecostal churches and traditional Protestant denominations are present in most communities. Argentina has the largest Jewish population in Latin America (the 5th largest in the world), about 300,000 (1,3%). Argentina also has the largest Muslim minority in Latin America (and the second largest in the Americas). The Pew Research Centre estimates about 1,000,000 Muslims in Argentina. (2,5% of the population)

Besides 5% of the population is atheist, 4% agnostic, and 0.9% Buddhist and others.

Because of the strong legacy left by Moorish Muslims on the Iberian peninsula, there were Muslims of Moorish and African descent who explored the Americas with Spanish and Portuguese explorers.

The 20th century saw an influx of Arab migrants to the country, mostly from Syria and Lebanon. It is estimated that today there are about 3.5 million Argentinians of Arab descent. Among Arab Argentines, 784,000 are Muslims.

The Islamic Organization of Latin America (IOLA), headquartered in Argentina, is considered the most active organization in Latin America in promoting Islamic affiliated endeavors.

Mud-built Mosque, Mali
image hosted on flickr

Mosque by Diana JQ, on Flickr

These traditional mud-built Mosques are a beautiful and typically Malian sight. Every year in October or November, after the mud surface has been washed thin during the rainy season, the local community will gather at the Mosque to mix fresh mud. They will then plaster the mud all over the outside, renewing and re-sealing the surfaces for the year ahead. The wooden struts protruding from the walls are built in, not for structural reasons, but to provide footholds so that people can climb all over the Mosque whilst resurfacing it with mud. As you can see clearly here, the wooden struts are not needed on the lower part of the walls.

Some sharp contrasts here. Traditionally Islamic countries are building these fantastic modern mosques with excellent design and then on the other hand you have Northern European countries where they (for some reason) insist on building these awful, tacky, Disneyland-like constructions that stick out like a sore thumb.

I would love to see things like this, or this around here. But instead I have to look at stuff like this. And it's just so ugly.
