47% believe fundamental clash between Islam and British values

YouGov polling carried out across the world has shown that a large proportion and in a lot of cases, a majority of citizens believe that Islam clashes with the values of their society.

That includes 47% of Brits who believe that Islam fundamentally clashes with the values of British society, with only 23% saying that they think Islam is compatible with Britain.

The numbers elsewhere are even higher: 60% in Finland, 59% in Denmark, 59% in Norway and 56% in Sweden believe that Islam clashes with the values of their society.

There is clearly huge work to be done to destroy radical Islam, with vast swathes of western society increasingly viewing Islam negatively.
