Muslims in Europe, Part One

In the first of a series on Europe's growing Muslim population, NPR's Sylvia Poggioli begins in Morocco. Would-be immigrants describe their hopes and dreams for a new life in Europe. Across the Straits of Gibraltar in Spain, the historical memory of Moorish rule continues to influence European culture and contemporary Christian-Muslim relations.
