The world has a short-term memory

Fellow blogger, Joel Griffith, over at The Seventh Sola makes a succinct but excellent point about the double standard most of the world holds when it comes to Israel. His latest post there follows:

Brief post today, but it's a whopper.
Look back to the United States in World War II. We were attacked by Japan, and our war policy was "unconditional surrender." (Yes, include Nazi Germany in that, too)
Israel gets attacked with thousands of rockets launched into her. But she is supposed to "show restraint."
Please tell me why "unconditional surrender" is okay for the United States when it is attacked, but not for Israel when she is attacked.
I'd love some reporter to get the cojones to ask the Secretary of State that, or even the President, if the opportunity arises. Somehow, I don't think they'll do it.
