I'm not quibbling over nuances, I'm answering the OP.

The title of the OP, ...Israel bought THEIR land, is factually wrong. Or do you think it is factually accurate?

None of this area had any history or identity as a sovereign nation in 1500 years.

Not as a sovereign nation but it certainly had a cultural and ethnic identity as a Muslim region with Jewish and Christian minorities. What happened when the Christians tried the mass immigration of European knights to establish Christian kingdoms in that region during the crusades? See what I'm getting at? And it's not only because it is in THAT region, the same would have probably happened had it been in Argentina, Asia or almost anywhere else. The situation that we have now was obviously predictable.

Jordon failed to accept and accommodate the displaced Palestinians who left Israel

Other than by an act of good will and altruism by the population in Jordanian territory then, why would they have to accommodate refugees? Jordanians didn't want to accommodate Palestinian refugees even though they are culturally related YET you expect Palestinians to accommodate European Jews, that are culturally more European than Middle Eastern and that haven't come close of being a majority in that region in two millennia, in their territory peacefully? Do you see how ridiculous that expectation is? It just doesn't work like that, it simply doesn't, unfortunately.

Real life, real people, and history is more complex than that.

The only thing that's complex is the Jewish question: they've been a minority in almost every area on earth for the past 2 millennia but they want to displace a majority, somewhere someplace, to establish a Jewish nation. That IS complicated because, predictably, the people displaced fight back, and it's normal! The Palestinian reaction isn't complex at all, it was predictable and it would have happened had Israel been created almost anywhere else...
