Some exchange should always be possible: Israeli Arabs who marry foreigners and choose to live in Israel and so on. Relations among individuals in the present time should be given precedence over historical claims of imaginary homelands, let alone blood-and-soil-ideology, whereever this may be. Of course, my cultural history began long before my birth, but I have few enough illusions concerning my culture to see that this is not what renders me free and happy. Let's study history, but let's not unduly glorify it: To my knowledge, Israeli law has broken with levirate marriage and Palestinians can live in (hopefully) happy couples in Europe, too. Am I very much mistaken?
