Israel had it's beginning from Jews smuggling arms illegally into Palestine past the British blockade. This was OK. Ask anybody (except the Brits). Now, under similar circumstances, the Palestinians ae trying to smuggle weapons past the Israeli blockade. This is not good. Ask anybody (in Israel). It is the same with killing civilians. Israel rules that it is OK to kill civilians if it is done with military equipment and if there is no proof that the civilians were targetted. It is not OK otherwise. In this manner, it was OK for Israel to kill a thousand Palestinian civilians during the Gaza op, but it was not Ok for the person or persons unknown to nurder the settler family. Personally, I don't believe that any killing of civilians is OK. Israel's attempt to excuse their killings makes Israel a much worse entity than if they simply did the killings and kept their mouths shut.
