    The outcome of the study, reported the French weekly Valeurs Actuelles, found that inhabitants of the French-speaking parts of Belgium were most concerned about continuing immigration.

    Published last week and carried out at the initiative of RTBF and the newspaper Le Soir, it concluded that seven out of ten French-speaking Belgians have the impression of experiencing first-hand the Muslim conquest of their country.

    It shows a complete rejection of multiculturalism by French-speaking Belgians.

    The poll, in which 4734 people participated, indicates that 74 percent of the respondents consider Islam to be an intolerant religion – compared to 38 percent for Judaism and 14 percent for Catholicism.

    Some 71 percent judge Islam to be incompatible “with the values of society”.

    Two-thirds of Belgians feel “more and more invaded” and feel that “there are too many immigrants”. By contrast, only 13 percent see the Muslim community as “a cultural enrichment factor” for their country.

    Of those polled, 60 percent see the presence of a Muslim community in Belgium as “a threat to the identity of the country”, to the great displeasure of Belgian public television.

    The state media denounced the findings as “the sign of a society filled with fear and the rejection of otherness”.

    Interior Minister Jan Jambon denounced the failure of the integration policy in Belgium two years ago when he noted that “a significant part of the Muslim community” were guilty of embracing terror attacks with enthusiasm.

    “A significant part of the Muslim community has danced on the occasion of attacks,” he told the Flemish daily De Standaard. The minister vehemently denounces the total failure of the integration policy pursued in Belgium vis-à-vis foreigners in general, and Muslims in particular.

    “They threw stones and bottles at the police and press when Salah Abdeslam was arrested. That’s the real problem.”

    The Belgium-born French national of Moroccan descent was directly involved in the attacks in Paris on 13 November 2015 that killed 130 people, through providing logistical support for the assailants, driving them to their target locations, as well as in the manufacture of the explosives used.

    Abdeslam was apprehended during a police raid conducted in the Molenbeek area of Brussels in March 2016 after one on the largest manhunts in modern European history.
