Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Muslims in France alone represent 1% of the entire EU population.

You can't actually know this, of course, because France doesn't do statistics on religion. It would be interesting to know how many inhabitants of France would declare themselves Muslim, if the question was asked in the census (which it isn't), and how that would compare with the number of "those of Islamic culture", which I suppose approximates to those descended from north African ancestry.

And you're right about non-exclusive categories. I arrived in France as an atheist Protestant. By assimilation, I'm now pretty much also an atheist Catholic; and most likely I'll end up an atheist Muslim.
