    It isn't like there's a square inch of land on Earth currently owned by any person that was not forcibly seized from another person in the past.

    Land belongs to whomever is strong enough to hold it.

    I just realized, with a few minor modifications this same scenario could apply to the Palestinian/Israeli conflict. I would also be willing to bet most here who support an American's right to not be forced off of his banana farm, would not support Al-Khalid's right not to have his olive grove or goat pasture not taken over by the newly installed Israeli government.
