Where is the outrage?

Two articles (and there are others) in the last day:

First threat:

An Israeli minister has called for the assassination of the Hamas leader, describing it as the only way to halt rocket-firings from the Gaza Strip.

Housing and Construction Minister Ze'ev Boim said Wednesday that the next step in operations against Hamas, the democratically-elected ruler of the Gaza Strip, must be aimed at assassinating Prime Minister Ismail Haniya.
Second threat:
Tel Aviv should attack Tehran in the coming year in order to get the mission accomplished, says an Israeli expert in weapons.

Isaac Ben-Israel, Israeli legislator and weapons expert, said Wednesday that Israel has only a year to pull off a successful strike on Iran's nuclear facilities.

The former defense official said an attack on Iran should take place before it is too late. "Last resort means when you reach the stage when everything else failed. When is this?"
Just imagine the outrage if Iranian legislators were making such threats against Israel. Did I say outrage? U.S. warships and planes would be heading for Iran as we speak.
