"Who has the right to say that France in thirty or forty years will not be a Muslim country? Who has the right in this country to deprive us of it?" Marwan Muhammed, spokesman, Collective Against Islamophobia in France (CCIF), Paris.
Interior Minister Manuel Valls said he was "shocked" by an RTL Radio report which estimated that more than 40,000 cars are burned in France every year.
The Muslim population of France reached an estimated 6.5 million in 2013. Although France is prohibited by law from collecting official statistics about the race or religion of its citizens, this estimate is based on the average of several recent studies that attempt to calculate the number of people in France whose origins are from Muslim majority countries.
This estimate would imply that the Muslim population of France is now approximately 10% of the country's total population of around 66 million. In real terms, France has the largest Muslim population in the European Union.
Not surprisingly, Islam and the question of Muslim immigration were an ever-present topic in newspaper headlines during 2013. In practical terms, the debate over Islam in France centered mainly on questions about French identity, secularism and security-related issues.
What follows is a chronological review of some of the main stories about the rise of Islam in France during 2013:
On January 1, 2013, Interior Minister Manuel Valls announced that a total of 1,193 cars and trucks were torched across France on New Year's Eve. He also said he was "shocked" by an RTL Radio report which estimated that more than 40,000 cars are burned in France every year.

Russia begs to differ from the international coddling consensus. National suicide is not on their immediate agenda, anyway.
My dear cousin vacationed in Paris, in May. She was gravely disappointed and departed early, for this reason. Muslims had overtaken the very atmosphere everywhere. She found it both alarming and depressing. Only the great land marks said you were in France. A waste of money to go there now, she opined.
Birth control has it’s effects, it seems. The West is figuring just now figuring that out. They win, we lose.
So long, Marianne.
Thanks to abortion alone, we've prevented something like 50 million Americans from ever taking a breath in this country.
And then you add up all the pregnancies that never took place thanks to contraception, homosexual acts, and the lie that women don't need to have children to feel fulfilled and you've created a demographic time bomb. One that implodes.
You people better get to having children.
Oh, and if you have children, take them out of state run schools.
Nothing says Happy New Year like flaming Peugot. :-)
