France's Hollande admits 'problem with Islam'

President Francois Hollande speaks of "a problem with Islam" in French society, in excerpts published Wednesday of a book in which he also suggests that immigration needs to be curbed. "There is a problem with Islam because Islam requires (holy) sites and recognition," Hollande told two journalists from Le Monde newspaper for the book which will be published Thursday. "It's not Islam that poses a problem in the sense of its being a religion that is dangerous in itself, but because it wants to assert itself as a religion in the (French) republic," he is quoted as saying in "Un president ne devrait pas dire ca", which translates as "A president shouldn't say this".
