settler clash deemed intolerable?

I was encouraged by this headline, thinking the Israeli military might be coming to its senses and might start to see Palestinians as human beings with rights or something moving in that direction...

(here's the article)
Israeli military dubs settler clash 'intolerable'

Until I saw this quote:

"Violence and raising hands up against IDF [Israeli Defence Forces] soldiers is crossing the line in an intolerable manner," the statement said.

Business as usual. Shame for throwing rocks at soldiers, but forget about how Israel itself is facilitating or participating in the subjugation and torture of an entire population.

In light of what I referenced here-

the indignation at settlers' attacking the IDF is ridiculous!
