Double Standard (Update)

Or maybe the pot calling the kettle black.

This one does not pass the guffaw test.

Netanyahu called Iran “the greatest exporter of terror in the world.”…”In all these cases,” Netanyahu said, “the elements behind the attacks were Iran and its proxy, Hezbollah.”

You can’t claim the right to assassinate people in Iran and then complain when Iran assassinates (or attempts to assassinate) your people that Iran is engaging in “terrorism”.

Assassination is a dirty business, no matter who does it or why.

Update:  Yet another example from international affairs, where such hypocrisy abounds.  The Syrian ambassador to the UN tells the GA there:  “We could not imagine sending troops to the US to protect the Occupy Wall Street protesters.”

Good point.  (H/T @NidaKhanNY on twitter.)
