Good basic idea, but naive and wasteful. If you propose $500K to Arabs, they will take it as a starting point and demand twice that much, and then you'd meet them in the $700 to 800 range. Far better to offer 200,000 NIS, and then expect a demand for 600K, and bargain up towards 400,000 NIS, or about $100,000 USD give or take a few. They'll take it, so long as it's done on the QT. Already been done in Hebron with the purchases of Bet Shalom and Bet Hamachpela. Former owners went 'bye 'bye before they could even be targeted for death by Hamas and Fatah both.

It’s not hard to guess who would be asked/expected to come up with the money to implement this.

Unfortunately, many Israelis would take the cash and run, not the Arabs many of whom “feel” rooted to the Land...

If they cause trouble perhaps they can be killed before being booted out.

What utter nonsense otherwise.

Or take the money, "emigrate" and sneak back in through the Gaza tunnels.

One way or another that money would end up buying weapons that would be used against Israel. Dumb idea.

Yes, it’s like the gimme-gimmes here. Give them a little this time and they’ll be back demanding more next time and the next and the next and the next.

Very good idea, actually. I bet plenty would take it.

A more practical deal is to find out what motivates Paleos *as individuals*. Not as a group, and not as Muslims.

To explain, a state lottery was started in North Dakota, I believe, that was fairly ordinary by lottery standards, offering a big cash prize. However, few people were interested in it. But then some smart individual then said, “If they don’t want cash money, what do they want?”

The answer, it turned out, was a new, well built pickup truck. Even though such a truck only cost a fraction of the cash prize, it was what the public wanted, so when they offered it as a prize, a lot more people bought lottery tickets.

And this directly translates into what the Israeli government should offer the Paleos as an incentive for them and their family to leave. $500k is a lot of bread, and while some Paleos would go for it, there is likely something else they could be offered that would really prick up their ears.

That is, more Paleos leaving for less money.

And it would probably help to arrange it as part of a “package deal” wherein a family of Paleos could “cash out” and leave discreetly and quickly. That is, get out of the territories before they could be butchered and their stuff stolen. Because, you *know* that is what their fellow Paleos would do to them if they found out.

To add insult to injury, they could call it “the underground railroad”, even before they had begun it. This would do a lot to undermine Paleo scheming, especially if the Israelis offered a “bonus” payment if, on the way out the door, they ratted out some of their more violent brethren.

Use the money to buy more armored bulldozers and herd them ALL over the border. Enough with the dumb ship.

Neh, best to give them a day a shekel and gun point. It’s all some understand.
