A new poll conducted after the beheading of a teacher in Paris has found that 79% of French people believe Islamism has “declared war” on their country.
The survey was carried out by polling firm Ifop following the jihadist murder of geography teacher Samuel Paty, who was targeted for showing pupils cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad during a lesson about freedom of expression.
The murder prompted numerous mass protest marches across the country in defense of free speech and against the Islamic takeover of France.
“87% of French people say they agree with the fact that secularism is now in danger in France, and 79% that Islamism has declared war on the nation and the Republic,” reports Ifop.
The poll also found that the political leader the French people have the most trust in when it comes to combating Islamism is Marine Le Pen.
A previous poll also found that the French are becoming increasingly hostile to allowing more immigrants to enter their country, with 64% believing migrants have a negative impact, while 60% believe welcoming them is no longer feasible due to cultural differences.
As we previously highlighted, disorder in France’s migrant dominated suburbs has become so chronic that some are calling for the military to be sent in.
France’s feared banlieues are suburbs on the edge of major cities controlled by large groups of Muslim gangs who attack police officers, fire crews and ambulance workers who venture into the area.
Earlier this year, French intellectual Eric Zemmour said the problem was so bad that the only option was to “reconquer by force.”
Over 250 French people have been killed as a result of Islamist attacks since 2015.
