Where did you pick such data? In France, a census about religion would
be illegal... Moreover, an Arab may well remain a very motivated
member of the relevant community even if he is not religious anymore -
exactly as it is often the case for Jews worldwide.

Lastly, "marginally higher procreation levels" are indeed a fair
description when comparing fertile couples of the same age, but but
the highest percentage of ethnic Frenchmen can be found amongst senior
citizens, so the comparison is misleading as to future demographic
trends. This is obviously reversed for immigrants of all origins -
save  perhaps for a few American novelists spending their retirement
days in Paris... :-)
