Indeed, you did not attach yourself to Judaism, your historical trajectory is different from ours, but not morally better nor does it confer you an advantage simply because you stayed on the land. If you read the requirements to qualify for the "right of return" Jews fulfil the requirements. In other words, we kept the attachement, that your grandfather and you have , we kept it over 2000 years. However, we did not exercise our right to return simply because of an attachment. We did it when we saw, beginning with the Russian pogroms and culminating in the Holocaust, that we would remain unable to defend ourselves and therefore more vulnerable to mass murder/agenocide, unless we achieved territorially based sovereignty. In any case, we are like most indigenous populations, vulnerable to permanent displacement because of lack of sovereignty, except we were able to overcome this vulnerable condition, even against the objections of those who "occupied" all the land (Palestinian Arabs).
