The Arabs and the world at large will have to consider the over a million Jewish families who were persecuted and expelled from Arab countries and all their assets, personal assets, businesses, homes and Real estate property over 120,000 sq. km which is 6 times the size of Israel and valued in the trillions of dollars that was confiscated by the Arab countries. (My own great grandparents were expelled and their ranch was confiscated). Those expelled Jewish families from the Arab countries were mostly settled in Israel and some in the West Bank (Judea and Samaria). Today over half the population in Greater Israel consists of Jewish families expelled from Arab countries and their descendants. Do you think it is just to expel them again from their own country of Israel and give their lands to the Arabs who expelled them from their Arab countries? Think again, it will never happen.

A good solution is: Relocate the Arabs from Greater Israel to the over 120,000 sq. km. land and home confiscated by the Arab countries and utilize the money of the confiscated valued of Jewish assets in Arab countries to finance the relocation and build an economy and industry where both the hosting Arab country and the relocated Arab Palestinians will benefit from greatly.

The Arabs can also utilize the funding provided by the world nations instead of buying weapons, build housing and industry, and thus improve the standard of living and quality of life. The question is how and when these avenues of solutions can start; and is there a strong enough leadership to pursue this avenue.
