EUROPEAN CIVILIZATION IS DYING - Going from attempting to uphold high principles of freedom, science, culture, and humanism, to fully embracing ISLAM, an oppressive, supremacist, and often violent ideology reflecting the 7th century Arabian desert mindset - How Islam is being defended and even PROMOTED by our own governments and by the SUICIDAL liberal class

We, of the post-World War II generations, have grown up reading accounts of European tragic history in the first half of the twentieth century, and have wondered what it would be like to be a witness to such apocalyptic events.
These days Europe is dying and we don't eve notice because of the patina of progress and civilization that covers the rot within.   
If you travel to Paris, for example, and if you're lucky, you may be spared the tell-tale signs.  Or you may see them but not understand the profound change that has taken place in the French capital, with its old mythical romantic aura.
You may see a number of soldiers guarding key tourist attractions.    You may think that's the sign of the times, and move on. 
You may see more Muslims on the street, in the shops, and as staff at your hotel.  No big deal.  The same thing occurs in America. 
What you don't see is the migration tidalwave and the demographic statistics that say that the population of original European stock is shrinking, while that of Muslims is growing exponentially.
Demographic numbers matter.  They can change history.  They can make and destroy civilizations in a manner that guns and bombs can never do. 
Europe was razed by Allied bombing and it recovered - for a while.  Except that as the number of males had been decimated, during the postwar it imported them from Africa and Asia.  Someone had to do the manual work, after all.
That was the fatal decision that will mean that in a generation or two Europe will be a Muslim-dominated country.  Muslims will not need to account for a full 51% of the population in each country, but they dominate certain cities already and they exert clout.  Furthermore, Muslim countries seem to have unlimited amounts of money to manipulate western politics and culture. 
If you are uneasy about any western government taking control of people's lives through modern technology, think what all that technology would mean in the hands of those who answer to an ideology rooted in the Saudi desert of the 7th century.
Many Germans did not bother to read Hitler's Mein Kampf.  They were full of contempt for ridiculous Adolf with ideas of grandeur. 
Today people don't bother to read the Koran and the Haddith because they are either filled with contempt for Islam, or too politically correct to even consider criticizing a religion of the third world.  

Muslims are still treated as a "minority," although there are 1.5 BILLION Muslims worldwide, and Islam is the fastest growing religion in countries such as the UK. 
Those who protest against Islam routinely focus on the wrong issues. 

They protest the application of blasphemy laws and other Sharia laws in the West.  They protest the raping of young girls.   They protest Muslim migrants' overuse of benefits and lack of productivity.  They protest their extreme expressions of rage against individuals that offend them, and even against random people in the street. 
What nobody dares to protest is the Muslim immigration, which is the cause of all of the above problems.
Governments too are being less than forthcoming.  While they appropriate ever increasing amounts of money to control domestic terror, they would not even consider the possibility of imposing a moratorium on Muslim immigration until it can be ascertained that Islam and Western civilization can co-exist.  They won't even discuss it.  They won't even mention it.
Europe will be the first to fully succumb to Islam, followed by the United States and Canada. 

The Muslim colonization process is ongoing. 
Migrants are arriving by the hundreds of thousands, reproducing, and then also converting locals. 
Muslims are being elected to different levels of government, and appointed to positions of high trust.  The Muslim Brotherhood has already infiltrated the highest levels of the American government. 
ISIS follows the Koran and the Hadith to the letter.  Whoever says ISIS does not represent Islam just does not understand the situation, or is plainly lying to you.
As Islam turns more and more orthodox - The ways of Saudi Arabia and ISIS will rule wherever Islam is dominant in the world. 

The Islamization process in the West has already started. 

We are not allowed do make fun of Mohammed.  Our children are being indoctrinated to respect and even revere Islam.  And Sharia law is being applied to finance, to the workplace, to public venues such as swimming pools.     
There are always fools who precipitate disasters.  Our fools are the politically correct liberals who tell us that accepting the colonization of the West by backward Islam is a good thing, a compassionate thing.  
So sit back and watch the decline and fall of not only of European civilization, but of Western civilization as a whole.   You are witnessing an apocalyptic event developing in slow motion.   Pay close attention.  Nothing seems capable of stopping it.

Forced indoctrination - Secular Western students forced by their schools to prostrate to Allah.
There is very little attempt to expose that Islam is actually a political ideology of conquest wrapped in religion.  The following article paints a picture of how Islam is making secular and liberal Westerners become defenders of Islam,  an ideology of oppression, violence, and supremacism.
How Islam got its American Privileges
By Daniel Greenfield
Muslims are treated as a racial collective rather than a group that shares a set of views about the world.

No other religion has a term in wide use that treats criticism of it as bigotry:  Islamophobia.

Challenging Islam does not question a creed; it attacks the existence of an entire people.
The racialization of Islam has turned blasphemy prosecutions into an act of tolerance, while making a cartoon of a religious figure is regarded as racist.
Western desecration of Christian religious figures is considered art and allowed under freedom of expression, while drawing Mohammed can be criminalized.
Islam is a theocracy. When it leaves the territories conquered by Islam, it seeks to replicate that theocracy through violence and by adapting the legal codes of the host society to suit its purposes.
Islam rejects religious freedom. It exploits it to remove the freedom of belief and practice of others. 

 While race and religion are used to create negative spaces in which Islam cannot be challenged, the creed is promoted positively as a culture. 

What is Islam? The obvious dictionary definition answer is that it’s a religion, but legally speaking it actually enjoys all of the advantages of race, religion and culture with none of the disadvantages.

Continue reading this article, as well as other related items about the growth of Islam, Islamic supremacism, the forced pro-Islam indoctrination of Western students in secular schools, how Europe slaughtered millions of productive and patriotic Jews and replaced them with 50 million Muslims, and statistics showing Islam's eventual demographic takeover of Europe.

Islam is a religion when mandating that employers accommodate the hijab, but when it comes time to bring it into the schools, places that are legally hostile to religion, American students are taught about Islam, visit mosques and even wear burkas and recite Islamic prayers to learn about another culture.
Criticism of Islam is denounced as racist even though the one thing that Islam clearly isn’t is a race.

Islamist organizations have figured out how lock in every advantage of race, religion and culture, while expeditiously shifting from one to the other to avoid any of the disadvantages.

The biggest form of Muslim privilege has been to racialize Islam. The racialization of Islam has locked in all the advantages of racial status for a group that has no common race, only a common ideology.

Islam is the only religion that cannot be criticized.
No other religion has a term in wide use that treats criticism of it as bigotry.
Islamophobia is a unique term because it equates dislike of a religion with racism. Its usage makes it impossible to criticize that religion without being accused of bigotry.

By equating religion with race, Islam is treated not as a particular set of beliefs expressed in behaviors both good and bad, but as an innate trait that like race cannot be criticized without attacking the existence of an entire people.
The idea that Islamic violence stems from its beliefs is denounced as racist.

Muslims are treated as a racial collective rather than a group that shares a set of views about the world.

That has made it impossible for the left to deal with ex-Muslims like Ayaan Hirsi Ali or non-Muslims from Muslim families like Salman Rushdie. If Islam is more like skin color than an ideology, then ex-Muslims, like ex-Blacks, cannot and should not exist.
Under such conditions, atheism is not a debate, but a hate crime. Challenging Islam does not question a creed; it attacks the existence of an entire people.

Muslim atheists, unlike all other atheists, are treated as race traitors both by Muslims and leftists.
The left has accepted the Brotherhood’s premise that the only authentic Middle Easterner is a Muslim (not a Christian or a Jew) and that the only authentic Muslim is a Salafist (even if they don’t know the word).

The racialization of Islam has turned blasphemy prosecutions into an act of tolerance while making a cartoon of a religious figure racist even when it is drawn by ex-Muslims like Bosch Fawstin.
The New York Times will run photos of Chris Ofili’s “The Holy Virgin Mary” covered in dung and pornography, but refuses to run Mohammed cartoons because it deems one anti-religious and the other racist.

The equating of Islam with Arabs and Pakistanis has made it nearly impossible for the media to discuss violence against Christians in those parts of the world.
The racialization of Islam has made Arab Christians, like Bangladeshi atheists, a contradiction in terms.
The ethnic cleansing of the Yazidi could only be covered by giving them a clearly defined separate identity.
Middle Eastern Christians are increasingly moving to avoid being categorized as Arabs because it is the only way to break through this wall of ignorance.

While racialization is the biggest Muslim privilege, race provides no protection for many Islamic religious practices. Muslims then seek religious discrimination laws to protect these practices even if it’s often a matter of debate whether their lawsuits protect their religious practices or impose them on others.

Islam is a theocracy. When it leaves the territories conquered by Islam, it seeks to replicate that theocracy through violence and by adapting the legal codes of the host society to suit its purposes.

Islamic blasphemy laws are duplicated using hate crime laws. Employers are obligated to make religious concessions to Muslim employees because of laws protecting religious practices, but many of these practices, such as refusing to carry out jobs involving pork, liquor or Seeing Eye dogs, are really ways of theocratically forcing behaviors that Islam forbids out of public life much as Saudi Arabia or Iran do.
Accusations of bigotry are used to outlaw ideas that Islam finds blasphemous and religious protection laws are used to banish behaviors that it disapproves of.
By switching from race to religion and back again, Islamists construct a virtual theocracy by exploiting laws designed to protect different types of groups.

Religions in America traded theocracy for religious freedom. They gave up being able to impose their practices on others in exchange for being able to freely practice their own religions.
Islam rejects religious freedom. It exploits it to remove the freedom of belief and practice of others. When it cannot do so through religious protection laws, it does so through claims of bigotry.

Religions were not meant to be immunized from blasphemy because that is theocracy. Instead religions are protected from restrictions, rather than from criticism.
Islam insists on being protected from both. It makes no concessions to the freedom of others while demanding maximum religious accommodation.

While race and religion are used to create negative spaces in which Islam cannot be challenged, the creed is promoted positively as a culture.
Presenting Islam as a culture allows it easier entry into schools and cultural institutions.
Islamic missionary activity uses the Western longing for oriental exotica that its political activists loudly decry to inject it into secular spaces that would ordinarily be hostile to organized religion.

Leftists prefer to see Islam as a culture rather than a religion. Their worldview is not open to Islam’s clumsy photocopy of the deity that they have already rejected in their own watered down versions of Christianity and Judaism. But they are constantly seeking an aimless and undefined spirituality in non-Western cultures that they imagine are free of the materialism and hypocrisy of Western culture.

Viewing Islam as a culture allows the left to project its own ideology on a blank slate. That is why liberals remain passionately convinced that Islam is a religion of social justice.
Their Islam is a mirror that reflects back their own views and ideas at them. They pretend to respect Islam as a culture without bothering to do any more than learn a few words and names so that they can seem like world travelers.

By morphing into a culture, Islam sheds its content and becomes a style, a form of dress, a drape of cloth, a style of beard, a curvature of script and a whiff of spices.
It avoids uncomfortable questions about what the Koran actually says and instead sells the religion as a meaningful lifestyle.
This approach has always had a great deal of appeal for African-Americans who were cut off from their own heritage through Islamic slavery, but it also enjoys success with white upper class college students.
The parents of those students often learn too late that Islam is not just another interchangeable monotheistic religion, that its mosques are not places where earnest grad students lecture elderly congregants about social justice and that its laws are not reducible to the importance of being nice to others.

Like a magician using misdirection, these transformations from religion to race, from race to culture and from culture to religion, distract Americans from asking what Islam really believes.
By combining race, religion and culture, it replicates the building blocks of its theocracy within our legal and social spaces.

Separately each of these has its advantages and disadvantages. By combining them, Islam gains the advantages of all three, and by moving from one to the other, it escapes all of the disadvantages. The task of its critics is to deracialize Islam, to reduce it to an ideology and to ask what it really believes.

Islam is a privileged religion. And there’s a word for that. Theocracy

Islamic Supremacism:
The True Source of Muslim ‘Grievances’
To understand Islam, one need only look to Muslim behavior where it is dominant and not in need of pretense, that is, in the Muslim world.  There, non-Muslim minorities are habitually treated as inferiors.  But unlike the many Western appeasers who willingly accept a subservient role to Islam, these religious minorities have no choice in the matter.
In the ongoing debate (or debacle) concerning free speech/expression and Muslim grievance—most recently on exhibition in Garland, where two “jihadis” opened fire on a “Prophet Muhammad” art contest organized by Pamela Geller—one thing has become clear: the things non-Muslims can do to provoke Islamic violence is limitless—and far exceeds cartoons.
Writes Victor Davis Hanson for example:
[Pamela] Geller, and not the jihadists who sought to kill those with whom they disagreed, was supposedly at fault. Her critics could not figure out that radical Muslims object not just to caricatures and cartoons, but to any iconographic representation of Mohammed. Had Geller offered invitations to artists to compete for the most majestic statue of the Prophet, jihadists might still have tried to use violence to stop it.  
Had she held a beauty pageant for gay Muslims or a public wedding for gay Muslim couples, jihadists would certainly have shown up.  Had she offered a contest for the bravest Islamic apostates, jihadists would have galvanized to kill the non-believers. Had she organized a support rally for Israel, jihadists might well have tried to kill the innocent, as they did in Paris when they murderously attacked a kosher market.

But it’s even worse than that.  The list of things that non-Muslims can do to provoke Islamic violence grows by the day and accords with the list of things subjugated “infidels” must never do, lest they provoke their Islamic overlords as laid out by Islamic law, or Sharia.
As such, the West needs finally to come to terms with the root source of these ubiquitous, easily sparked “Muslim grievances.”
Enter Muslim supremacism.
Islamic doctrine—which teaches that Muslims are superior to non-Muslims,  who are further compared to dogs and cattleimbues Muslims with this sense of supremacism over the rest of mankind.  And a good portion of Islamic history—when Muslims were for centuries on the warpath, subjugating large swathes of the Old Word—further enforced it.
This sense of Islamic supremacism was dramatically humbled after European powers defeated and colonized much of the Muslim world.  Bred on the notion that “might makes right,” Muslims, for a time, even began emulating the unapologetic and triumphant West. 
Turkey, for example, went from being the epitome of Islamic supremacy and jihad against Christian Europe for five centuries to desperately emulating Europe in all ways.  By the mid-1900s, Turkey became perhaps the most Westernized/secularized “Muslim” nation.
Today, however, as Western peoples willingly capitulate to Islamic mores—in the name of tolerance, multiculturalism, political correctness, or just plain cowardice—Muslims are becoming more emboldened, making more demands and threats, as they realize they need not militarily defeat the West in order to resuscitate their supremacist birthright.  (More appeasement from the bullied always brings about more demands from the bully.)
To understand all this, one need only look to Muslim behavior where it is dominant and not in need of pretense, that is, in the Muslim world.  There, non-Muslim minorities are habitually treated as inferiors.  But unlike the many Western appeasers who willingly accept a subservient role to Islam, these religious minorities have no choice in the matter.
Thus in Pakistan, as Christian children were singing carols inside their church, Muslim men from a nearby mosque barged in with an axe, destroyed the furniture and altar, and beat the children.  Their justification for such violence?  “You are disturbing our prayers…. How dare you use the mike and speakers?”
And when a Muslim slapped a Christian and the latter reciprocated, the Muslim exclaimedHow dare a Christian slap me?!” Anti-Christian violence immediately ensued.
All of this revolves around what I call the “How Dare You?!” phenomenon.  Remember it next time “progressive” media, politicians, and other talking heads tell you that Muslim mayhem and outbursts are products of grievances against the West. Missing from their rationale is the supremacist base of these grievances.
The Conditions of Omar, a foundational medieval Muslim text dealing with how subjugated “infidels” must behave, spells out their inferiority vis-à-vis Muslims.  Among other stipulations, it commands conquered Christians not to raise their “voices during prayer or readings in churches anywhere near Muslims” (hence the axe-attack in Pakistan). 
It also commands them not to display any signs of Christianity—specifically Bibles and crosses—not to build churches, and not to criticize the prophet.  (See Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians for my translation of “The Conditions of Omar.”)
If the supremacist nature of Islamic law is still not clear enough, the Conditions literally commands Christians to give up their seats to Muslims as a show of respect.
By way of analogy, consider when Rosa Parks, a black woman, refused to give up her bus seat to white passengers.  Any white supremacist at the time had sincere grievances: how dare she think herself equal?
But were such grievances legitimate? Should they have been accommodated?  Are the endless “grievances” of Muslims legitimate and should they be accommodated?  These are the questions missing from the debate about easily bruised Muslim sensitivities.
One can go on and on with examples from all around the Islamic world:
In Turkey, a Bible publishing house was once stormed and three of its Christian employees tortured, disemboweled, and finally murdered
One suspect later said: “We didn’t do this for ourselves, but for our religion [Islam]…. Our religion is being destroyed.”
In Egypt, after a 17-year-old Christian student refused to obey his Muslim teacher’s orders to cover up his cross, the teacher and some Muslim students attacked, beat, and ultimately murdered the teenager.
These Turkish and Egyptian Muslims were truly aggrieved: Islamic law makes clear that Christians must not “produce a cross or Bible” around Muslims. How dare the Egyptian student and Turkish Bible publishers refuse to comply—thus grieving their Muslim murderers?
In Indonesia, where it is becoming next to impossible for Christians to build churches, Christians often congregate outside to celebrate Christmas—only to be attacked by Muslims hurling cow dung and bags of urine at the Christians as they pray.
These Muslims are also sincerely aggrieved: how dare these Christians think they can be a church when the Conditions forbid it?
In short, anytime non-Muslims dare to overstep their Sharia-designated “inferior” status—which far exceeds drawing cartoons—supremacist Muslims will become violently aggrieved.
From here, one can begin to understand the ultimate Muslim grievance: Israel.
For if “infidel” Christian minorities are deemed inferior and attacked by aggrieved Muslims for exercising their basic human rights, like freedom of worship, how must Muslims feel about Jews—the descendants of pigs and apes, according to the Koran—exercising power and authority over fellow Muslims in what is perceived to be Muslim land?
How dare they?!
Of course, if grievances against Israel were really about justice and displaced Palestinians, Muslims—and their Western appeasers—would be aggrieved by the fact that millions of Christians are currently being displaced by Muslim invaders.
Needless to say, they are not.
So the next time you hear that Muslim rage and terrorism are products of grievance—from cartoons to territorial disputes and everything in between—remember that this is absolutely true.  But these “grievances” are not predicated on any human standards of equality or justice, only a supremacist worldview.

Denver: Schoolgirls Forced to Wear Headcarves, “Ankles Must Be Covered” on School Trip to Denver Mosque
School girls at a Douglas County public school in Colorado are being forced to cover up from head-to-toe to visit a mosque on a school mandated Common Core trip. There are no requirements to visit a Greek Orthodox cathedral or synagogue.
Here again we see that anywhere American law and Islamic law conflict, it is American law that has to give way.
The subjugation and oppression of women are enshrined under the sharia. Young school girls should not be forced to “respect” a dress code that represents honor violence, female genital mutilation, forced marriage, child marriage, et al.

Europe refused to save the talented, patriotic and productive Jews. Today it submits to the invasion of people who hate Europe and its culture, and who use violence to impose their views.

This article was posted on this blog before, but here it is as a reminder of what was lost, and how much more is still at stake. 
Europe will be unrecognizable in only a couple of generations.  Churches will have become mosques, and the vibrant culture that Europe once produced will be relegated to obscurity. 
Muslims don't need to be a majority.  They only need to become a powerful influence, and they already are. 
In the meantime, Europe, true to its old tradition of anti-Semitism, continues to target Israel and the Jews, with the help this time of its Muslim population. 
England, by the way, refused to accept Jewish refugees during the Holocaust.  It only took on some children, hopeful perhaps that they could de-Judeize them as they grew up.

April 13, 2014 - Otters and Science News:
The following article was written under the name Sebastian Vilar (or Vivar) Rodriguez and published in a Spanish newspaper several years ago.  The name is a pseudonym, and there is no record of who the real writer was. 

Barcelona old Jewish quarter
I walked down the street in Barcelona, and suddenly discovered a terrible truth, Europe died in Auschwitz . . .We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims.

(There were 43 million Muslims in Europe in 2010.  It is estimated that there are around 50 million today, and growing.  See related article below.  - Blogger)

In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, talent. We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world.  

The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world. These are the people we burned.

And under the pretense of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty, due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride.

They have blown up our trains and turned our beautiful Spanish cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime.
Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts.
And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and superstition.
We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their talent for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for our children and theirs.
What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe. 
Approximately 1,200,000,000; that is ONE BILLION TWO HUNDRED MILLION or 20% of the world’s population are Muslims.
The Jews are NOT promoting brain washing children in military training camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths of Jews and other non Muslims.
The Jews don’t hijack planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics, or blow themselves up in German restaurants. There is NOT one single Jew who has destroyed a church. There is NOT a single Jew who protests by killing people.
The Jews don’t traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for Jihad and death to all the Infidels.
Perhaps the world’s Muslims should consider investing more in standard education and less in blaming the Jews for all their problems.
Muslims must ask ‘what can they do for humankind’ before they demand that humankind respects them.
Regardless of your feelings about the crisis between Israel and the Palestinians and Arab neighbors, even if you believe there is more culpability on Israel's part, the following two sentences really say it all:
‘If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel . (Israel's PM Benjamin Netanyahu)
General Eisenhower Warned Us: It is a matter of history that when the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.
He did this because he said in words to this effect: ‘Get it all on record now, get the films, get the witnesses, because somewhere down the road of history some bastard will get up and say that this never happened.’

Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it ‘offends’ the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. It is not removed as yet. However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving into it.
It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the, 6 million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians, and 1,900 Catholic priests who were ‘murdered, raped, burned, starved, beaten, experimented on and humiliated’ while the German people looked the other way.
Now, more than ever, with Iran, among others, claiming the Holocaust to be ‘a myth,’ it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

Muslim population in Europe to reach 10% by 2050, new forecast shows
Pew Research study predicts that America’s Muslim population will grow to 2.1% by 2050, and Muslims will exceed Christians worldwide by 2070

April 2, 2015 - The Guardian - Europe’s Muslim population, boosted by large families and immigration, will nearly double, from less than 6% (43 million people) in 2010 to more than 10% (71 million people) in 2050, the forecast estimates.

Europe, the only region whose total population is projected to shrink, will see its Christian population diminish by 100 million people to about 65%, according to the report.

Although Christians will still be the UK’s largest religious bloc in 2050, the report predicts they will no longer represent the majority of Britons. In France, unaffiliated people will overtake Christians as the new majority.

But the atheists, agnostics and other unaffiliated of the world, despite their larger share of the population in countries like the US, France and Japan, will see their global share diminish because of an older median age and a tendency to have smaller families.

Muslim populations, on the other hand, are predicted to grow far faster than any other religion over the next 45 years, especially in the Middle East, India and sub-Saharan Africa.


France has the largest
Muslim population in Europe

Muslims praying in public on a Paris street -
Making a statement of their numbers and increased power.

One widely cited study by Pew from 2010 showed estimated that France had 4.7 million Muslims. At 7.5 percent of the population, this meant France had the largest Muslim population in Western Europe (for reference, in the same year Pew estimated that the Muslim population in the United States made up 0.8 percent of the total). Other estimates vary from around 5 percent to 12.

French census data can't tell us where France's Muslims live, but some past studies have put the percentage of Muslims in Paris as high as 15 percent.

Yet for all the attention to them, discovering the exact number of Muslims in France is a surprisingly complicated task –  the French government doesn't allow censuses that ask people about their religious beliefs, meaning that estimates have to come from independent sources.
