Four out of five French citizens say Islam not compatible with their values and there are too many Muslims in their country


Look for new sharia-speech laws to quell the conquered and crush dissent.

In a separate question some 78 percent of French people are of the view that Islam “seeks to impose its way of life on others”. Everybody knows.

TOO MANY FOREIGNERS IN FRANCE AND ISLAM NOT COMPATIBLE, MAJORITY OF FRENCH SAY.

MOST FRENCH PEOPLE SAY THERE ARE TOO MANY FOREIGNERS IN FRANCE, IMMIGRANTS DO NOT MAKE AN EFFORT TO ASSIMILATE AND ISLAM IS INCOMPATIBLE WITH THE FRENCH VALUES.

France’s new president clearly has some healing to do when it comes to two longstanding divisive issues in France.

Immigration and the place of Islam in society, are still very much contentious questions for the French, a new annual survey has revealed.

A poll by the Ipsos institute for Le Monde newspaper has revealed that a majority of 65 percent of French people say there are too many foreigners in France, a figure that has remained elevated in recent years, with the figure as high as 70 percent in 2017.

Another stat demonstrating a majority of French people are uncomfortable with immigration was the 60 percent of people who agreed with the statement: “Today I no longer feel at home like I did before”.

Of course not because it’s not your home anymore.

On top of that some 61 percent of French people share the belief that “immigrants in France do not make an effort to integrate”.

Some 46 percent of French people believe it’s not difficult for an immigrant to integrate.Unsurprisingly the percentages are far higher among those on the far right – 95 percent of National Front voters believe there are too many foreigners in France compared to those on the left (46 percent of Socialists).

When it came to the other ever divisive issue of the role of Islam, 60 percent of the people questioned for the survey titled “French Fractures 2017″, believe the religion of Islam is incompatible with the values of the French Republic”.

In a separate question some 78 percent of French people are of the view that Islam “seeks to impose its way of life on others”.

Regarding radical Islam, 46% of the French polled said that “even if it is not its main message, Islam still contains within it the seeds of violence and intolerance”.

That reflects a jump of five percentage points on last year’s survey.
