I am guessing that it's to show the Israeli's compassion and their willingness to treat their enemies' wounds. If so, there are a number of problems with that assertion. Primarily, if you were a wounded Israeli soldier, would you want to be treated by a Gazan doctor? Prolly not.

The establishment of the State of Israel was a mistake.
For hundreds of years the jews lived together with arabs in relative peace.
Now, a hunk of arab land, formerly called "Palestine" was taken from the Palestinians and given to the Jews to form the State of Israel.
And now, the jews live together with the arabs in a state of ongoing warfare where no one is safe, neither soldier nor civilian. And, that situation has persisted for over 50 years now.
There are more cell phones per capita in Israel than in any other country in the world. That's because every time a bomb goes off or a rocket comes down somewhere, everyone is phoning their friends and relatives to check that they're OK.
How much more blood needs to be spilled before we recognize that the formation of the state of Israel by taking land from the Palestinians was a mistake, and the best option for all concerned would be a return to the situation that existed before WWII, where jews were a people without a country just like gypsies. Jews thrived in Europe and America without a homeland, but it is true that they were persecuted in eastern Europe. In Eastern Europe, jews were not allowed to own land, and as a result, they had to learn skills and trades to make a living, instead of farm. What was seen as a hindrance turned out to be a blessing because Jewish tradesmen would teach their sons and daughters their trades, and those children became very successful selling their skills to non-Jews.
The problem is that the more settlements Israel builds, the more infrastructure they stand to lose by returning that land to the Palestinians.

You need to look up "jizya". Live as second class citizens and pay taxes for not being a Muslim, convert, or die.

Safer than say "Chicago"?

If you have read Mark Twain's writing about his trip to the holy land, you will notice that the place was nearly uninhabited. The "Palestinians" were brought in to counteract Zionism. They were promised the Jewish spoils. There were very, very few before that.
And the Arabs could have easily resettled them with all the Jewish land they stole. But, instead left them there.

Take a look at this article. http://www.frontpagemag.com/2014/bruce-thornton/the-incoherent-excuses-for-hating-israel/ I am always amazed at the restraint Israel has towards them. Any other culture would have exterminated them. Imagine, your kid blows himself up to murder Jews and your pass out candy.

Most of the Jews came to Israel because they were discriminated against or kicked out of Europe, even before WWII. The you had WWII and the European countries, instead of assimilating them in the aftermath, they were very happy to see the Jews go to Israel. And you can't blame the Jews for not wanting to live in Germany or other parts of Europe where their parents were shoved into ovens. So, with more Jews arriving in Israel, the UN saw fit to make it a state. I believe it was actually the USSR that introduced the resolution.
LEt's say we accept your premise, that it was a mistake made 70 years ago. How in the world do you expect to return to the situation that existed prior to 1947? You have generations of Israeli citizens that have been born and grew up in Israel. By what method do you expect to get these people who have never lived in Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, etc to go live there?
Good grief. Might as well say what happened to the Indians was a mistake and we should turn the USA back over now. And just like the Jews, where exactly would we all go?
