Hisbollah has a deterrent. Israel is far stronger, but will only pursue attacks upon Lebanon for partisan political gain, and thus will not seek to destroy Hisbollah for fear that the cost would be too high. Both sides are normally deterred. This spring Israel's ultra-right wing government has a problem with peace negotiations. This threat of peace can only be destroyed by a war. With an existential threat to the Likud and Yisrael Beiteinu - and PEACE is the ultimate existential threat to both - then Israel must have a war to preserve them. Nothing, absolutely NOTHING will save Likud and Yisrael Beiteinu so securely as dead Israelis. No dead Israelis means they have no reason to exist. Dead Israelis are security for Likud and Yisrael Beiteinu. Got it? So WHO gains security by ensuring Israelis are insecure?
