New EU survey finds 44% of Muslims believe in Islamic fundamentalism

A new survey by think tank European Values ​​has found that 44% of Muslims in Europe believe that correspond to radical Islamic fundamentalismcasting even more doubt on the prospect of integrating migrants.

Researchers from European Values, based in the Czech Republic, have defined Islamic fundamentalism as a belief in returning to the roots of Islam, combined with an adherence to a strict interpretation of the Koran. Fundamentalists also believe that the values ​​espoused in the Quran take precedence over the norms and laws of European countries. According to the data, only 4% of Christians in Europe are fundamentalist Christians.

The survey found that 57% of Muslims reject gay people as friends, 45% said they don’t trust Jews and 54% think the West is an enemy of Islam.

Among fundamentalist Muslims, 72% of respondents said they would use violence to defend Islam. Among regular Muslims, this number was 35%.

An incredibly large number of Muslims want Islamic Sharia to rule over local laws. For example, 72% of Muslims in France want to see Sharia as the main or only source of law in the country. This figure remains surprisingly high in the UK at 69%.

But in Germany, the number of Muslims who want Sharia supremacy is only 13%. Other German Muslims, at 44%, think Sharia is just a good moral guide.

The findings prompted a strong reaction from Radko Hokovský, executive director of European Values, who said Islamic fundamentalists are determined to apply their religion in ways that could potentially destroy individual freedom. He warned that the Czech Republic should learn the lessons of the disaster that is Western Europe.

“The Czech Republic should not repeat the mistakes made by some Western countries with strong Muslim communities,” Hokovský said. “Liberal democracy must be able to defend itself.

The integration of Muslim migrants is one of the central issues facing the European Union today. Problems resulting from an influx of migrants into various European countries threatened the continued existence of the EU and spurred the rise of far-right political parties. These parties are convinced that their concerns are being totally ignored and swept under the rug in favor of the arrival of more migrants, regardless of the cultural consequences and the increase in crime and sexual assault.

Faced with the influx of migrants with foreign values, a majority of Germans, 60%, believe that Islam does not belong to Germany.
