No, instead you advocate Manifest Destiny, the Trail of Tears, and other bullshit.

We aren't talking a huge amount of change, or even getting rid of the idea of heritage, just making it so that ancestry isn't so important that they can't be happy without the possessions of their ancestors. Personally, I don't think this problem really exists to a degree that warrants discussion.
Let's be clear, we are talking about sending people with weapons to remove someone from their home. Explain to me why ancestry is more important than occupation.
To be clear, we are talking about someone who wants to live in their ancestral home, but can't because other people live there. It's a much smaller concession for the person to just not live in their ancestral home, then it is for the state to remove someone from their home.

If you keep making concessions to cultures that are in conflict with society, then those conflicts will never get resolved. if people stop making ancestry so important, the conflicts disappear and everyone is better off. Cultures die. Let them.
"Those Palestinians should just give up and move out, because Israel is occupying their land, and occupation is more important than ancestry."
"Native American culture should just die out, since their culture is in conflict with ours, and we're occupying the land, so its more important than their ancestry."
