French feel threatened by Muslims
Issued on: Modified:
A recent opinion poll found that 42 per cent of French people consider the Muslim community a threat. The survey, published in the French newspaper Le Monde, also found that 68 per cent feel that Muslims are not well integrated into French society. Muslim groups have reacted with more hesitation that one might expect. And one pollster points out that what the newspaper and other media outlets overlook are the 22 per cent of people who think that the Muslim community enriches France.
