On the subject of the thread, Macron is the best option French Muslims have out of realistic candidates for President. At least he's only denounced radical Islam rather than all Muslims. Marine Le Pen would probably deport any Muslim she legally can, and now she's been overtaken in polls by Eric Zemmour, who is even harsher on Muslims. He wants to legally restrict all first names to "authentically French" ones.

I think the Muslims have to compromise and adapt somewhat to French society, or else Zemmour will win the election and things will get a lot worse for them.

I would say so. While he's just behind Le Pen in this poll of polls, the most recent polls have him ahead of her.

I still assume that, even if one of the far-right candidates makes it to the second round, enough people will close ranks around the other candidate, likely Macron, to deny the far-right candidate.
