Such a move would force the world to confront Israel having two sets of laws for the people under its control; one set for legal residents of Israel and Jewish residents of the West Bank, and one for Arab residents of the West Bank.

Israeli apartheid would be exposed in all its ugliness for the world (with the exception of U.S. congressmen) to see. Then the world could move to a full blown response of boycotts, sanctions and disinvestment, a la South Africa.
