Majority of French believe Islam incompatible with their culture


A recent Ipsos poll shows 61% of French adults believe Islam is incompatible with the French culture.

Data from the poll states this percentage makes up the majority of French adults, as only 17% of adults believe Judaism is incompatible with French society and 6% believe Catholicism is incompatible with their society.

Islam dress codes are high on the list of unfavorable cultural differences. The poll indicates 77% of men in France want the burkini banned in public and 79 percent want headscarves banned on university campuses.

The poll also indicates the number of people in France who believe Islam is incompatible with their society is on the rise since the last poll (taken in January) indicated only 47% believed Islam was incompatible with French culture.

French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has said the upcoming election will be a “choice of civilization.” Le Pen recently refused to wear a headscarf while meeting with Lebanon’s Grand Mufti, canceling her meeting with the religious leader over the requirement.
