France: Politician deems recognition of Palestinian state would attract Muslim voters

French satirical newspaper Le Canard Enchaîné has reported that Benoît Hamon, a French politician, member of the Socialist Party and former the Minister for Education, has advised that the best way of attracting back Muslim voters (euphemistically named as "banlieues et quartiers") into the party's fold would be for the Socialist-led governement to recognise the state of Palestine.

Benoît Hamon believes that French Muslims are disappointed at President François Hollande's friendly stance towards Israel and that the way to placate the large and growing French Muslim minority  is to recognise Palestine as a state.
