Here's an interesting point: Israel offered no military response to the Netanya bombing last week, and we've soaked up numerous attacks from over the Lebanese border - but nobody praises this as "restraint".

A cynical explanation would be that much of the world considers "soaking it up" to be the simply appropriate response for us. But I think the real explanation is that until we respond, the attacks aren't really noticed by the global media.
