The Israeli government is currently willing to do dangerous things when they involve firepower -- like attacking Iran or bombing Gaza -- but not hard things when they involve fighting domestic battles to restart to the peace process and reverse the settlements. That's a world in which their central problem keeps getting worse, and there is no hope of it getting better. I'd be a lot more likely to support "dangerous things Israel thinks to be necessary" if Israel seemed more interested in doing the hard things everyone knows to be necessary.
