Like I said, read the books...the Irgun followed your prescription better than almost any other military or paramilitary outfit I know of. You might also remember that Paul tells us the government does not bear the sword in vain. Of course, governments often misuse the sword, but a government that fails to use the sword where appropriate is no government at all. When Israel was founded, there was no legitimate, indigenous government in Palestine. That's one of the reasons a fight needed to take place there, to establish just that. And for the most part, Israel does not bear the sword in vain. Indeed, given their frightful situation, they are far too restrained. The most merciful thing that could happen in that neck of the woods would be one side to win decisively, once and for all (and we both know who that would be at this juncture in history). Instead, we have an artificial UN/US/EU/Soviet/Israeli Left-induced war of attrition (no win war) causing untold misery and suffering.

Listen to yourself.
