A majority of Europeans want a ban on immigration from Muslim-majority countries, a poll has revealed.
An average of 55 per cent of people across the 10 European countries surveyed wanted to stop all future immigration from mainly Muslim countries.
The Chatham House study, conducted before US President Donald Trump signed an executive order banning immigration to the US from seven predominantly Muslim countries, found majorities in all but two of the ten states opposed immigration from mainly Muslim countries.
A ban was supported by 71 per cent of people in Poland, 65 per cent in Austria, 53 per cent in Germany and 51 per cent in Italy.
In the UK, 47 per cent supported a ban.
In no country did more than 32 per cent disagree with a ban.
Every group in any way quantified by a vast majority wish Islam to leave and have a negative view of it. Could it be that the numbers are actually skewed due to the fact that millions of Muslims, by virtue of living in European countries, would have voted in this pole? I think so. Were only native-born non-Muslim Europeans counted in this poll, the results would have been an even greater degree negative toward Islam and mass immigration.
