    There's a difference between a sovereign nation and a smattering of disjointed tribes (which was the case in both scenarios)

      Give Palestine their land back.

        There were no sovereign nations in either of the geographic locations. As Jonathan said, they were disjointed tribes.

        That doesn't justify some of the atrocities the colonists perpetrated against the Natives (or vice versa, of which there were plenty), but it's entirely specious to act like Europeans showed up in the Americas and conquered/destroyed an entire country.
