Good-bye France...

...too.

Islamic State: One in Six French People Say They Support Isis Caliphate
"Almost a sixth of the French population (16%) have a favourable disposition towards the terror group Isis (now known as the Islamic State), according to a new poll.

The survey, conducted by ICM Research, asked people across the western European countries of Germany, UK and France whether their view of IS was favourable or unfavourable.

The participants were asked: "From what you know, please, tell me if you have a very favourable, somewhat favourable, somewhat unfavourable or very unfavourable opinion of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant otherwise known as Isis?"

A breakdown of the age groups participating in the poll revealed that the younger the respondent, the more likely they were to have a favourable view of IS.

Twenty percent of French people between the ages of 35 and 44 had a favourable opinion of IS while 22% of 25-34 year-olds asked were also favourable to the group.

The highest opinion of the group came in the youngest age group, the 18-24 year-olds.

France, a country with a population of 66 million, has a Muslim community of 4.7 million (as of 2010) and a large number of this community have emigrated from North Africa."

Surely the poll was over-represented with Muslims. Otherwise there are a large number of ignorant anti Jewish frenchies. Pathetic either way.

But the percentage of Muslims is not large enough to explain the number. Obviously, ISIS and similar appeal to the hard left youngsters even of non-Muslim persuasion. All these black uniforms, guns, head cutting, you know how it goes. Some kind of perverted romanticism.

Polls just do a sampling purporting to be representative so by rights, if the poll sampling size is 1000 and the Muslim population of France is 7%, then to be truly representative, only 70 Muslims should have been polled. If they are over-representative, say 140, then the conclusion would be biased more towards ISIS
