France: 25% Of French Teenagers Are Muslim… 1 in 5 Support ISIS
A new study released in February found that 25% of French teenagers are Muslim. One-in-four are Muslims.
ME Forum reported:
An investigation of the French youths’ religious beliefs was conducted last spring by Ipsos. It surveyed nine thousand high school pupils in their teens on behalf of the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) and Sciences Po Grenoble.
The data was released on February 4, 2016, by L’Obs, France’s leading liberal newsmagazine. Here are its findings:
** 38.8% of French youths do not identify with a religion.
** 33.2% describe themselves as Christian.
** 25.5% call themselves Muslim.
** 1.6% identify as Jewish.
** Only 40% of the young non-Muslim believers (and 22% of the Catholics) describe religion as “something important or very important.”
** But 83% of young Muslims agree with that statement.
Worse yet– One in six French residents support ISIS.
CNS News reported:
A survey done by ICM research, found that nearly 16% of French citizens have a favorable view of ISIS. To add some context to that number, French president Francois Hollande currently has an approval rating of 18%.
