...with regard to arming Syrian rebels:

Where are those folks who were so morally outraged by the whole Iran-Contra thing?

Beats me.

On the other hand, funding the Contras actually violated Congress' explicit budgetary command (the Boland Amendment).

I don't think Congress has passed a law/budget requirement prohibiting arming the Syrian rebels.

So there's at least one salient difference.
