Is it fair to compare French Algeria with the West Bank?

One thing really bewilders me in regard to the French last year of ruling Algeria.
The Europeans fought against the FLN, they called for "French Algeria" but There was a referendum in 1961 where 69% percent in Algeria and 75 % in France voted Yes for Self-determination,
in other words, they vote for the end of French Algeria, (Taken into account the only French citizens could vote )

Am I missing something? What's the explanation?

Are you sure that only French citizens could vote in this referendum?

Futurist,
I think so, that is, also Muslims with French citizenship could vote, but even so, the numbers are too high.
