    France invaded Africa and Muslim lands multiple times. They have a long shared history and the reason they have immigrants from there is they colonized them.

    Because the French Revolution (1789-95) that set up the modern French state was extremely leftist/ communist and outlawed all religion. Religion was gradually allowed back into the country through the 1800's but kept limited. Today the French state remains anti religion and leftist, and so very officially tolerates all religions (including Islam) equally (as long as they don't interfere with the state, society, government) as the state believes in none of them.
