Taking the "eye for an eye" too far

Reading:

New blue water chemicals used by Israeli Army at the Bil’in demonstration against the Wall

Wondering:

After the US bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan became a staunch opponent of nuclear arms. By making the world aware of the cataclysmic results of nuclear weapons is their way of honouring their dead and the radioactive afflicted generations that followed.

Why then does Israel -amongst other blatant crimes- use chemical weapons? Was Hitler's horrifying and sickening aspiration to rid the world of Jews in gas chambers, the Holocaust, not a calamitous lesson to be taught for all peoples, especially the Israelis?

They use them because they can. Really I don't know, why would anyone do such a thing is beyond me.
