Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The poll is precisely about what the French Muslims think and/or how they see themselves/their integration, in some instance compared to what the general population thinks on such topic, so it should respond to that particulat objectionc.

The riots were about youth, youth unemployment (or precarious employment) and the fact that society does not seem to trust them much. It had little to do with being Muslim or Arab.

Nobody is denying the riots, or denying that there are problems in France. It's just that the constant pounding, especially when it's false, gets tiresome at times.

But your comment about higher expectations is well taken.
