French Hypocrisy on Fighting Terrorists

Algeria has been fighting a war against militants for two decades and refuses to negotiate with terrorists. French President Francois Hollande gave his backing to Algeria's tough tactics, saying they were "the most adapted response to the crisis." "There could be no negotiations" with terrorists, the French media quoted him as saying in the central French city of Tulle.
Except for the Israelis, right Hollande. Not only do you demand they negotiate with terrorists, but they are required to surrender territory and create a state for the terrorists as well. For France and Algeria, using tough tactics against terrorists is the right approach, but for the Israelis it amounts to a "disproportionate" response.
