And what a year it has been.
The Islamization of France in 2014
More than 1000 French supermarkets, including major chains such as Carrefour, have been selling Islamic books that openly call for jihad and the killing of non-Muslims.
A report estimates that 60% of the prison population in France, or 40,000 prisoners, are “culturally or originally” Muslim.
The Fresnes Penitentiary near Paris launched an experiment that involves isolating radical Muslim prisoners in a separate unit to prevent the radicalization of other prisoners. Muslim prisoners clashed with prison guards to protest the new measure.
An Ipsos survey found that 66% of French people believe there are too many foreigners in France, and 59% believe “immigrants do not try hard enough to integrate. According to the poll, 63% of French people think that Islam “is not compatible with French values.”
The Muslim population of France reached an estimated 6.5 million in 2014. Although French law prohibits the collection of official statistics about the race or religion of its citizens, this estimate is based on several recent studies that attempt to calculate the number of people in France whose origins are from Muslim majority countries.
This implies that the Muslim population of France is now roughly 10% of the country’s total population of 66 million. In real terms, France has the largest Muslim population in the European Union.
