Of course they have a choice! With over a hundred fold in Arab land space than Israel, they can return to places they and their ancestors emigrated from! You keep believing the falsehood that "Palestinians" had been chillin', even prospering in that region for "hundreds of years". When in fact, Arabs, not "Palestinians", immigrated to the region on mass
between World War One and World War Two in response to the mass Jewish immigration that was taking place there since the late 19th century. And you can educate yourself with my sources on that here (external - login to view)

Further, the Arabs had their chance to have a state in 1937 and said no. Again in 1947, they said no to a UN partition plan. Peace deals like the one signed 1993, and any offers to give control of the WB to the "Palestinians" like in 2000, or the handing over of Gaza in 2005, only resulted in more violence aimed at Israel.
Israel has said yes to peace, but it's not good enough because the Arabs simply aren't interested in peace. They want all
the land with the only Jews being dead ones. Truly, the Arabs are not only guilty of coveting a tiny piece of land when compared to Arab land, but are obviously filled with hatred for Jews, evidenced not only by their violence, but with the rhetoric that calls for Israel's complete destruction
that is preached in much of the Arab world.
No one's stopping Arabs from living in the vast Arab lands, so let the people who actually do
have an ancient tie to the land live there - the Jews.
