It seems that there is quite a gap between what some former Gaza settlers demand ( or deem fair compensation ) and what the governement is willing or able to offer them. Since both sides use a lot of spin it is hard to determine when which side is telling which truth or what lie, but it is quite clear that within the Green Line it is hard to afford the lifestyle that many settlers have become used to, which is one of the main reasons why so many of them oppose giving up the occupied territories. All this does not come as a surprise to anybody who is familiar with at least part of the history of colonialism and decolonization.
