They did, in fact, conquer

They did, in fact, conquer that land. They fought the war of independence in 1948 and then re-enforced their dominance during the 6 day war of 1967. The point is that they did not do anything to the palestinians that we did not do to the native americans. Whether you agree with them being on that land is an entirely different debate. I do not care if you like or dislike jews or "Israel" (which by the way are vastly different things). I do however take exception to people pretending that this country came into existence in a different way. We, as Americans, have done (and continue to do) far more heinous things in the name of sovereignty and national security. These are facts. There you go, I came again.
