A new survey by Paris-based Ipsos research company shows that 74% of French respondents believe that Islam is ”intolerant” and “incompatible with their social values.”
On this chart, ‘musulmane’ means Muslim, juive means Jew, catholique means Catholic
ANSAMED The survey, published on the Le Monde newspaper website, also showed eight out of 10 French people believe the Islamic religion tries to impose its views on others, 10% believe a majority of Muslims are fundamentalists, and another 44% believe many but not all Muslims are fundamentalists. Most respondents did not know how to define fundamentalism, however.
Anti-Muslim sentiment is pretty much the same in all Western countries.
GALLUP Globally, many Muslims report not feeling respected by those in the West. Significant percentages of several Western countries share this sentiment, saying that the West does not respect Muslim societies. Specifically, 52% of Americans and 48% of Canadians say the West does not respect Muslim societies. Smaller percentages of Italian, French, German, and British respondents agree.
