Poll: ISIS More Popular in France than in Gaza


A poll of French opinion on Islamist group ISIS (also known as ISIL) show one out of ever six residents of the country as having a positive view of the terror group. Sixteen percent of French residents said that they would support the establishment of an Islamic “caliphate” in Iraq and Syria, and perhaps beyond.

French residents expressed the highest percentage of support for the Islamist group among residents of the three European countries polled on the issue – and in fact, more French residents as a percentage of the population support ISIS than do residents of Gaza, where only 13% of the population said they would be happy to see an Islamist state in the Middle East.
