ye old double standard
So let me see if I've got this straight....

When Israel targets and kills known terrorists it's labelled as an assassination and the world condemns them. Oh, and those known terrorists are called "militants" or "freedom fighters", not terrorists.

When the US Army kills a known terrorist using an airstrike (what Israel also employs to target terrorist leaders) the world heralds them and indeed the entire US and all media praise them for taking another important step in the "War on Terror". Not only is the killing applauded, but the footage of the bombing is posted all over the internet as is the picture of the dead guy.

Can I ask what the difference is?

The advisor to the President or Iran, has publicly stated that Jews are filthy. "Historically, there are many accusations against the Jews. For example it was said that they were the source for such deadly disease as the plague and typhus. This is because the Jews are very filthy people. For a time people also said that they poisoned water wells belonging to Christians and thus killed them". And so the lies are perpetuated.....
