I doubt very much that the Israeli Arabs are foolish enough to ever accept an offer to leave Israel. Two great reasons: 1. They know that they are much happier as Israeli citizens with full rights and privileges and a benign providing government vs. a typical arab regime and, 2, They are following their duty to stick around in the hopes of overtaking the Israelis with birthrates and other opportunities to kill them off.

It is not very forward thinking to try to kill off the hand that feeds you, but there you are. Proof? Look what they did to the meticulously maintained Gaza greenhouses that were actually purchased for them by American Jews for millions of dollars. Those greenhouses and the residences left, the streets and infrastructure did not last a day. They were turned to rubble and now have missiles perched atop them. This alone demonstrates the mentality we are dealing with.
