What kind of Islamism? Are they Shia, Salafi, Muslim Brotherhood, Sunni or Democratic? Islamism, like Islam, isn’t a monolithic entity and it very fractured into differing ideologies.

Since when is merely showing up for a protest, especially with the two groups that garner the most sympathies in the Muslim community, as indication of political thought? It might scare you (lol), but most Muslims think Hezbollah and Hamas are legitimate resistance groups.

Secondly, Paris is a poor example, especially with the relative poverty and isolation of it’s Muslim community.

I agree, I’m not saying the opposite but I’m talking about all political kinds. Most Salafis are apolitical, they have a very strict vision of Islam but don’t get involved to spread it or anything, they just practice their religion in a very strict manner, so I guess I’m not talking about Salafis, except for Wahhabism, of course.

No, I can’t and I won’t believe this. Showing up for a demonstration and chanting “Hamas resistance”, “Death to the Jews” is, I think, a pretty good indication of your political thought. But you know, maybe they are humanist when they are not at the demos.
