No, definitely I didn't want to say anything political of the sort.
But I actually lived in Lille for half a year in 2003, and while Arab-clad people were not a majority, they were very visible and everywhere. I am quite sure that having 10% civilians looking like this would be perfectly valid.
Geez, people, what I said is based on objective reality, it was a neutral observation that I don't really have any strong feelings about. Can we not discuss this, please; this is silly.
