Gatestone Article On The Islamization Of France

At the end of last year, Soeren Kern of the Gatestone Institute wrote an article about the Islamization of France. It's a long and disturbing look at what's happening in France today- a country that now has the largest Muslim population in Europe.
According to a confidential French intelligence document leaked to Le Figaro, a form of Muslim ghettoization is gaining ground within the French school system. The report says that Muslim students are effectively establishing an Islamic parallel society completely cut off from non-Muslim students.

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."
Around 6.5 million Muslims are currently living in France. That's about 10% of the total population.

Kern lists the slew of Muslim-related headlines that occurred in 2014 starting with an annual event that happens on New Year's eve:
On January 1, Interior Minister Manuel Valls announced the most anticipated statistic of the year: a total of 1,067 cars and trucks were torched across France on New Year's Eve, a "significant reduction" from the 1,193 vehicles that were burned during the annual ritual on the same holiday in 2013.
Car burnings, commonplace across France, are often attributed to rival Muslim gangs that compete with each other for the media spotlight over who can cause the most destruction. An estimated 40,000 cars are burned in France every year.
The long list includes news about the flow of French jihadists to Syria and Iraq, some as young as 13, including a young 14-year-old female, and entire families. Around 800 or so have traveled to fight with ISIS. Burqa-clad women trying to buck the face veil ban. Charlie Hebdo was sued by Islamists for blasphemy. The thwarting of numerous terrorist attacks. Threats of terrorist attacks and  assassinating President Francois Hollande. Muslim gang rapists. Renaming a historic theatre in the Fontainebleau Palace- the Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al-Nahyan Theatre. The 400-seat theatre dates back to 1857 and Napoleon III.  It was named after the ruler of Abu Dhabi who spent millions restoring the space. A French jihadist killed three at the Jewish Museum in Brussels. A non-Muslim man is attacked for eating a ham sandwich on a train. Three police were stabbed by an ISIS supporter. Attempts to get halal meals for Muslim inmates. Over 1,000 French supermarkets were selling books that promoted jihad and the killing of infidels. Mother sues government for letting her son leave France to join ISIS. The Pearl of Hope, a pro-Palestinian Islamic charity is shut down for raising funds for jihadist groups in Iraq and Syria. 10 or more other charitable organizations are being monitored. "Lone wolf Muslim injured 11 people after he rammed his car into a crowd of people shouting "Allahu Akbar." There are more.

And this:
In August, a poll found that a staggering 15% of people in France support the Islamic State [IS]. Among those between the ages of 18 and 24, 27% said they had a positive view of the IS, while 22% of those between the ages of 25 and 34, and 20% of those between 35 and 44 supported the jihadist group. The largest share of IS opponents was composed of people aged 45 to 54.
