    Anyone with a little bit of common sense, not blinded by nationalism or zionism or both would realise that it would be like opening the box of Pandora to apply Israeli law to settlements theoretically outside Israel. It would amount to de-facto annexation which might seem alluring for the short term if it weren't for those pesky palestinians who would ( rightly so) demand the same rights as their jewish neigbours...Israel would than have to decide officially become an apartheid=state or one state for all it's citizens thus losing it's exclusively Jewish character......
