I think you're probably right about that but why would they want to live there, all things considered? Maybe its good politically for Israel, but not such a great place to raise a family.
The first question that Jews ask themselves about anything is, "Is it good for Jews?" Always.
Now, people can debate whether this is a good or bad thing for Jews, and whether it's good or bad thing for non-Jews, and what the consequences of this fact might be in any given scenario. But one thing not up for debate is that this fact must always be front of mind when trying to understand anything that involves Jews in any way. It helps enormously.
