The people of France and other European countries have endured much suffering at the hands of Islamic extremists over the past several years, as a result of their open door policy welcoming in Muslims from terror hot-spots.
According to Daily Caller:
A new Ipsos poll finds that 61 percent of adults say Islam is incompatible with French society, compared to just 17 percent who say the same about Judaism and 6 percent who believe Catholicism is incompatible with French society.
The number of those who believe Islam is incompatible is trending upwards and has jumped 8 points since peaking in January 2015, when 47 percent of Frenchmen said Islam is compatible with French society.
Islamic dress codes are especially unpopular in France.
The poll found that 77 percent of Frenchmen want the burkini banned in public, and 79 percent want headscarves banned on university campuses.
French far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has tried to capitalize on rising anti-Islam sentiments among the French people, calling the upcoming election a “choice of civilization.”
Le Pen has waged a public campaign against what she calls the “two totalitarianisms” of globalization and Islamic fundamentalism.
The Front National leader, who is running for president of France, has said that the European Union was destined to collapse because ordinary people were no longer interested in keeping it alive, according to Breitbart.
“The European Union will die because the people do not want it anymore… We will change for another Europe, the European idea harmed by the federalists will re-energize itself, re-invigorate itself in the Europe of the people and of … the nations”.
On her nation’s continued membership of the EU and the Euro currency union, Le Pen remarked “the French will have the last word”.
Calling for France to “reconnect with the greatness of our country”, Le Pen said the Republic would “regain her independence, the rule of law, the sweetness of freedom”.
It appears France may soon to join the ranks of populist movements in England – with Brexit – and the election of Donald Trump in United States.
