    Israelis who say America isn't fully taking its own advice are missing the point. They are not saying violence can't be used for self-defense. However, military action doesn't solve the problems between people. Anyway, Israel wanted the US to invade Iraq and many people with ties to Netanyau were in Bush's government. Did it help Israel? No. Instead of there being a counterweight to Iran, Iraq depends on Iran somewhat and Iran worked harder to arm itself. And Iraq is only a partially successful mission after getting cooperation from locals feel included. Israel simply wants to defeat the Palestinians and a peace agreement is an agreement of defeat, really. Violence cannot in the long-term help Israelis. It didn't work in Lebanon except when the Lebanese after Israel withdrew from most of Lebanon except for Shebaa saw less of a reason to accept a war with Israel. Israel encourages Palestinian violence as it did with the Lebanese.
