You mean they don't just kill Jews?

Jeff Jacoby blasts Europe's refusal to declare Hezbullah a designated terror organization.
So what can explain the European reluctance to blacklist Hezbollah as a terrorist organization and shut down its fundraising and logistical operations? As in Churchill’s day, cowardice and dishonor might have something to do with it.
“There’s the overall fear if we’re too noisy about this, Hezbollah might strike again,” Sylke Tempel, the editor-in-chief of the German foreign affairs magazine Internationale Politik told the Times last month, as the Bulgarian government was preparing its report on the Burgas bus bombing. “And it might not be Israeli tourists this time.”
The moral stench of that rationalization is almost as repellent as its stupidity. Yes, Hezbollah’s foremost targets are Jews and the Jewish state — it has always proclaimed the destruction of Israel as its goal — but have Europeans still not figure out that while Nazis and the Nazi-like start by killing Jews, they rarely end with them? After 30 years of Hezbollah butchery around the world, can Europe still imagine that pretending Hezbollah is mostly “benign” will keep them safe? That if they feed the crocodile enough, it won’t eat them just yet?
“The storm will not pass,” Churchill warned Europe’s appeasers. “It will rage and it will roar, ever more loudly, ever more widely.” Trying to appease the unappeasable is always folly. Europeans were supposed to have learned that lesson from the Nazis. Must they learn it again from Hezbollah?

Yeah, no. They didn't learn a thing from the NAZIs. Or, actually, that is the wrong way to see things. There were many who knew, only a few cared, about the NAZIs. They still simply do not care. Whether it is turning their own nations over to socialism, which they have done, initially falling one at a time and now as a conglomeration, surrendering to banks not tanks, or turning Israel or anyone else over.

Now they are even trying to go beyond, and invite muslims in order to surrender to them! Socialism simply doesn't seem to be fast or hard enough? They simply don't have a will to care it seems. Society wide suicidal tendencies?

You can't fix that. Well, okay, you can. But it'll hurt.
