Yes, the Palestinians were offered their land to live side by side the State of Israel on a silver tray in 1948. But they thought that with the help of Arab armies such as Egypt, Syria and Jordan they would destroy the Jews. WRONG. Also, dont be naive. If the settlers would have stayed in Gaza the Arabs would have murdered them like they did in Hebron in 1929 when they murdered 60 Jews and injured 60 others, burning down their houses. A POGROM.
