Johanna, you have asked "...why if you are given this tremendous amount why you would not move on and go on with the rest of your life?" A person's home is part of their identity. I'm a native Texan, and if you've ever met a Texan before you will have noticed that being Texan is part of that person's identity - part of their ethos. I cannot imagine what my response would be if my government told me that I would be forced to leave my home forever. Money could not accommodate for the loss of part of who I was. I imagine that for the settlers who created communities out of nothing, much of their individual identities involve the word we use loosely, ie, their "home". The Rabbi who wrote before was absolutely right. Peace is a worthy cause for making such a sacrifice - giving up part of who you are. But it doesn't mean its easy.
