Perhaps, but only in cases where they can be sure people will look away or just can't comprehend it. I've no doubt Israel commits many crimes, but the crime of genocide is perhaps the ultimate crime and one nobody tends to commit without cover of open war. I'm not in agreement that genocide has been committed against the Palestinians yet, but there's the potential and certainly the will in Israel. It will, of course, be done in the name of 'security/defence', like all genocides are.
