The European Malaise

Vox reports results of a survey by ICM Research which asked people in France, Germany and the U.K. whether they have a favorable or unfavorable view of caliphate-declaring ISIS, sometimes called DAESH. The results are as follows:
Germany:                Favorable   2%      Unfavorable 82%
France:                    Favorable 16%      Unfavorable 62%
United Kingdom:      Favorable   7%      Unfavorable 64%
Presumably substantial numbers in each of the three countries were unwilling to express an opinion, for whatever reason. You see here one result of decades of Muslim immigration to Europe.

The Vox article is entitled "One in six French people say they support ISIS." It is fair to conclude France has a problem.
