Its unfortunate that someone got hurt, but you're right. He put himself into a volatile situation and sometimes, that turns out for the worse. Its a risk a person takes when venturing into a region known for such clashes.

The two israeli police officers killed today were in the land of palestine, a volatile situation that turned out for the worse.
They knew they were putting themselves in danger so I guess it's ok they died too right?

Actuall, to all intents and purposes Israel is pretty much a western nation.
They buy most of their goods and services from the west as well as their weapons systems.
Their system of government is western in nature, and they are very heavily influenced by western media and culture in the form of music, TV, sports etc etc
Also, you seem to be forgetting that the protester was from the US - as are many others who regularly protest in the region.

Let me ask you this. How long would it take the American people to be demanding the US government to take action if rockets started flying over the US/Mexico boarder from the Cartels?
