Why can't Israel be more like us French

Well, maybe because they remember 1948, when the Arabs in Palestine rejected their own state, choosing instead to try driving the Jews into the sea?
French lawmakers voted on Tuesday in favour of recognising Palestine as a state, following similar moves in Britain and Spain as European countries try to restart the stalled Middle East peace process.
The highly symbolic vote in the lower house National Assembly is not binding on French government policy but is likely to spark fury in Israel, whose Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has warned it would be a "grave mistake."
MPs voted 339 to 151 in favour of a motion that invites Paris to recognise the state of Palestine "as an instrument to gain a definitive resolution of the conflict."
Where's the guarantee that the Arabs would see it--our bold in the immediately above--as such?  It wasn't in 1948, when the United Nations offered it the first time. Maybe France should think about their own history of appeasement in the face of fanaticism. Ponder this, say;
Junaid Jamshed, who was the lead singer of band Vital Signs, was caught on camera while allegedly making derogatory remarks about the prophet Mohammed's youngest wife Ayesha.
Jamshed allegedly claimed that the girl would always demand more attention from the Prophet.
"Mother Ayesha was an attention seeker. She would often fake illness to gain the attention of the Prophet Muhammad," he allegedly said. "Even a prophet's companionship cannot change the nature of a woman." 
Now he's in fear for his life. Literally;
The police have opened a blasphemy investigation and it is also believed that Islamic authorities issued a fatwa - a religious ruling which sometimes results in a death sentence. 
Oh, that is Pakistan, not Palestine. Nothing for Israel to worry about.
