    Let me answer your questions: 1. the answer is no. Israel was 10 miles wide from east to west and it was very easy for Arab armies to march into the land. Since their stated aim was to drive Jews into the sea, an aim they have never denounced, moving to the old borders threatens the life of every Jew in Israel 2. The state of Israel has still not been able to provide homes for the people it drove out of Gaza to make room for Arabs. There are hundreds of thousands of "settlers" who would require homes if they were driven from their lands. It would not be cheaper for example to move people from East Jerusalem would be very expensive. Housing in that city is really costly. 3 I do not think, based on the history of the comparatively few people who were driven from Gaza, that those living in Yesha would accept the word of a government that they would find new homes.
