France has more than five million Muslims, a stagnant economy, 24% youth unemployment and endemic social alienation among young Muslims
An investigation by Kings College London and the BBC World Service found that in a single month, November 2014, 5042 people were killed by jihadists in 664 separate attacks across 14 countries. That is one death every eight minutes. Recently, the Islamist group Boko Haram (which translates as "Western education is forbidden") is believed to have murdered up to 2000 people in Nigeria. In the 35 years since the Islamic revolution in Iran in 1979, at least a million people have been killed in tens of thousands of jihad attacks, religious civil wars or wars between predominantly Muslim countries. In France, Muslims represent 60% of the prison population. Two of the three jihad killers in Paris had served time in prison. In Australia, Muslims are statistically more likely to engage in jihad than to enlist in the Australian Defense Forces. Islam does not make countries better, it makes them worse.
