The purpose of this law is to identify those in a particular area as 'troublemakers' and by their refusal allow them to be singled out for 'special' treatment. Obvioulsy, by refusing the Oath of Allegiance they will be declared non-citizens. While they will retain their human rights, they will lose most of their civil rights (vote, own property, possess and use firearms,etc.). The next step is to encourage them to leave the area, followed by seizure of their real property, followed by the distribution of that property to Israeli citizens who have taken the Oath of Allegiance. Thus goes one aspect of the reclamation of the land of Israel that was promised by YHWH. If the application of the Law of Moses can do this, I see no reason to stop the process since it is obviously a Godly method of reclaiming the land. It is the 'justice' that must not be denied the foreigner living in your midst that is perscribed in the Torah and the Bible because he has taken your land which was held in trust for Israel by YHWH. Justice carries a two-edged sword--it cuts against malefactor and those who choose to refuse it. Most of the time, the application of 'justice' is regarded as legalized revenge conducted by the state on behalf of a victim (i.e. a rapist getting a long prison term or the death penalty). But sometimes it is the state having to act in behalf of its constituency against a broader group--misconducted or applied with unnecessary force and this becomes, in its extreme, genocide. Great care must be taken to ensure that humane treatment of the evicted is given in so far as they will allow it. Israel is for the Jews.
