It has been estimated that Hizbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza are capable of launching at least 50 thousand rockets each into Israeli territory. While Iran has never officially confronted Israel directly, Hizbollah and Hamas have done it, and quite successfully, too. Then how come Israel isn’t drumming up the same warlike language regarding these very real threats?
Possibly because there’s no point in making the effort. When the time comes, Israel will act – we hope.
As it surely will in the case of Iran. The rest is fanfare.
