There are ten EU countries with a majority wishing to stop further immigration from Muslim countries, according to a poll conducted by
the ‘think-tank’, Chatham House.

The measurement was carried out in Belgium, France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Spain, Britain, Germany, and Austria. Over 10,000
people participated in the survey. They were asked if they agree with the statement, ‘all further immigration from predominantly Muslim
countries must be stopped.’

The majority of respondents, in all countries, showed a unanimity of opinion from the measurements taken once the British think-tank
survey had been completed. 54.6% agreed with the statement, 20.1% opposed it, and 25.3% took a neutral position.

Chatham House noted that it therefore appears that European leaders are out of step with the citizens on the question, and that
right-wing parties who are critical of immigration are more consistently in agreement with the grassroots in terms of Muslim immigration.
