Gush Katif was Jewish for a very long time. Even Byzantine records depict some Jewish settlement there. It was given up during the 1920 and 1929 Rab riots when things were getting really hot...not much different than today. Jews were pulled out of that area and Hebron in order to save lives...not much different than today. It was even acknowledged by a Hamas spokesman who declared that they were so strong they even got Jews to abandon their own land.
