It's the 'instigates conflict' I think is rhetoric. It implies that Israel were just sitting in Israel, doing nothing, and that's not the case. I'm not up to scratch to debate what you're saying about Hizbollah having access to US dollars, but it wouldn't surprise me with all the US money exchanging hands throughout the Middle East.
