Making Corsica (which I visited a few years ago) an anti-sharia island would be a major win against the islamonazis in general.
It would be more preferable that the government would be actively seeking to end any muslim migration, as well as giving the public confidence in discriminating against wearers of the garment that are still in the country.

Hatchets and harpoons were thrown in a beach brawl that broke out after a tourist was seen taking pictures of women wearing burkinis in Corsica.
The fracas between a group described as North African ‘Muslim families’ and local youths broke out a day after a ban on the head-to-toe swimsuits was upheld by a judge in Cannes.
A tourist was seen taking pictures of women wearing the full-body swimwear on a creek near the village of Sisco on the French island.

When the bathers objected, a group of local teenagers are said to have come to the photographer’s defence.
Local reports said that the group of North African men armed themselves and took on the young Corsicans. One man was hit by a spear-like weapon and a pregnant women was taken to hospital with injuries.
Tension between local communities in France and Muslims of North African origin has grown since 85 people were massacred by a lorry driver in a jihadi-linked terror attack in Nice on July 14.
France has already introduced a controversial countrywide ‘burka ban’ which outlaws women from wearing full-face veils in public.
The new beach rules in Cannes will see women caught wearing full-body, head covering burkinis facing a €38 (£32) fine if they refuse to change or leave the beach.
The unrest in Corsica, which lasted several hours, escalated when the teenagers’ parents rushed from their village to the beach where two of them were then injured with harpoons. In retaliation, villagers then set fire to cars belonging to the bathers, it is claimed.
