Men and angels are different beings.  Men have the choice of free 
will - to obey or disobey G-d.  Angels do not.  They have no free 
choice.  They are not human beings.  They just do what G-d tells them 
to do.

Nowhere did it say that Satan disobeyed G-d, and there is nowhere in 
Tanach that any angel disobeyed G-d, or did anything of its own 


HH: Nothing at all happens without God's permission, but both men and
some angels act contrary to the moral will of God. He permits these
things to happen to accomplish a greater good, but they are acts of
rebellion against God. God does not want murder, so when Satan inspires
murder, he is rebelling against God. He did not ask permission for
people to murder, but God allowed it.
