But maybe I just feel that way because Cuba and the US have a long history of bad blood. Due to my upbringing, it took me a long while to figure out American govt =/= American people, tbqh, lol; American people = coolio, American govt = not so much. I know, it is pointless to say "If x hadn't happened, it wouldn't have led to y", but you gotta admit, the US has made plenty of enemies (and frenemies, i.e. enemies who pretend to be your friends) over the years because of your long, long, long, long, long history of meddling into other countries' affairs.
P.S. The majority of the world does not hate Muslims; a vast amount of the world's population is actually Muslim, and will likely surpass the number of Christians in future decades, so get used to it, 'cause they're here to stay.
