Muslims in Media Statistics

Reuters report that ‘only’ 30% (2.3mil) of Muslims reject secular laws

Look how Reuters is trying to trivialize the fact that million Muslims in France reject French law and lean towards Sharia – and extremism. As if 30% is a small number! In addition, their data on the actual Muslim population number in France is completely off. Irrespective, we are hundred percent sure the real figure is in reverse; 70% support Sharia.

A Pew Forum study, published in January 2011, estimated 4.7 million Muslims in France in 2010 (and forecasted 6.9 million in 2030). According to Jean-Paul Gourévitch (fr), there were 7.7 million Muslims (about 11 percent of the population) in metropolitan France in 2011. So what’s the real figure nationwide?

Just under 30 percent of French Muslims reject secular laws: poll

Just under 30 percent of France’s 3 to 4 million Muslims reject the country’s secular laws, according to an Ifop poll published by the French weekly Journal du Dimanche.

When asked if they considered the Islamic legal and moral code of sharia to be more important than the French Republic’s laws, 29 percent of respondents answered “yes.”

The poll found that 20 percent of male Muslim respondents and 28 percent of female Muslim respondents were in favor of the face veil, the niqab, and of the burqa which covers both face and body.

Another 60 percent said they were in favor of letting girls and women wear a head scarf at schools and universities which is forbidden at France’s secular public institutions.

Deadly attacks by Islamist militants, including bombings and shootings in Paris which killed 130 people last November and a truck attack in Nice killing more than 80 people in July, have raised tensions between communities in France.

French Muslim leaders said last month that decisions taken by some municipal authorities to ban the body-covering swimwear the burkini could lead to further stigmatization of Muslims.

The Ifop poll contradicted previous estimates which said Muslims made up to 10 percent of France’s population of some 65 million. It said Muslims represented 5.6 percent of the country’s citizens aged 15 and over and 10 percent of under 25s. It said 84 percent of France’s Muslims were under 50.

It can be difficult to establish the religious background of French citizens because the country’s secular laws forbid the collection of data on religion and ethnicity.

There are also many people who may be of Muslim descent, but do not necessarily consider themselves Muslims.

The poll, commissioned by the think tank Institut Montaigne, was conducted by phone between April 13 and May 23 among 1,029 people aged 15 and older who were of Muslim faith or culture, extracted from a sample of 15,459 people.

  1. I refuse to believe that the reporters are so ignorant that they do not understand the significance of the data. The fact that they try to play it down suggests an agenda. France is now a lost cause and the UK will soon follow.

  2. ‘French Muslim leaders said last month that decisions taken by some municipal authorities to ban the body-covering swimwear the burkini could lead to further stigmatization of Muslims.’

    Muslims through their sociopathic alter egos, such as ISIS, are already clearly inflamed against Europe, continually targeting France and Germany. The implication of the above statement is again a veiled threat – do not ‘marginalize’ us or condemn us, or we will seek retribution.


  3. Bizzare for some media to say ‘only 30% of Muslims’ do not accept secular laws, as if it’s tiny percentage, a bit like saying ‘only 5% of Muslims have an inclination toward terrorist acts’, hardly reassuring.

    Why is it that Europe feels ‘honor bound’ to bring in boatloads, last year well over 1 million ‘migrants’, when if similar numbers of European ‘migrants’ arrived at any Middle Eastern country, they would likely be rounded up, beaten, shot, beheaded or any other number of atrocities, just for having the temerity of showing up unwanted and unasked.

    It is no wonder that rising nationalist and so called ‘far right’ politicians are on the rise throughout Europe. Isn’t London now over 25% foreign born, if not higher? And those living in these countries, advocating for more immigration, do they have no conception that their country’s character, traditions and culture will inevitably change as the percentage of Muslims rises higher?

    The more outspoken ‘imams’ openly state that is their goal, through adding endless more Muslims through ‘breeding’ and immigration to eventually supplant the existing native populations in European nations, some major European cities are already more than 50% Muslim.


    • I am almost done reading ‘The People vs Mohammed’ every chapter and verse has confirmed my personal opinion of Islam. Nothing more than a cult dreamed up by a man of small stature (dwarf) who created sunna’s and haddith’s to gratify his own perversions. His invention of a brothel in paradise is exactly what these godless imams preach and all muslim males believe in this utter BS. Oil is the real problem and the income has given unprecedented power to those who own the land and export the raw material. Until this area is confronted there will be endless mindless attacks on our societies. The source needs dealing with.
