I may be wrong, but technically is it the "promised land" for Arabs?
As you pointed out, given the ease of travel with airplanes and now with telecommunications, the Texas Palestinians could travel back as often as desired for visits to the areas in the Holy Land that are sacred to Islam.
Plus maybe American airlines can offer reduced fare for travel to Mecca.
In terms of living conditions, uprooting people from refugee camps sounds more acceptable than uprooting people from a country with highly developed institutions and infrastructure, wouldn't you think?
