Germans shocked appeasement doesn't work

Like Jews boarding trains for the concentration camps, Germans thought if they just didn't anger the Islamofascists, they'd be OK:

"I am shocked," said J├╝rgen Lesch, 56, a Dresden software developer. "Now it looks like terrorism has reached us, as well."

Germany's refusal to take part in the U.S.-led war in Iraq once had Germans thinking Islamic terrorists would focus elsewhere, said Lesch's wife,Marita, 52, a teacher. "We didn't fight in Iraq, and until now we assumed that if we behaved well in the world, nothing would happen to us," she said.
