Firstly, Its not about being muslim. I know the comores got their independence by a letter of good luck and two stamps, and we make fun of that, also most of who we killed were traitors of our own not french people.
Secondly, We got our independence by 8 bloody years of war, that made 3 republics fall, and resulted in 1.500.000 martyrs.
For Algeria the french mobilized 400.000 soldiers and paratroopers, ( the biggest army to set foot on Africa in adamian history ) If only you mobilized so much men to defend france from Nazi Germany back in 1940.
Thirdly, We are fine thanks.
Fourth, If we were a french puppet state Israel would have been spanning from egypt to Iran, smartass.
We were colonized in the 5th of July 1830 and we got independence in the 5th of July 1962.
