Why did Adolf Hitler hate Jews?

Well, I have heard that it was because they had great lives and Hitler called them 'parasites' for even coming into germany in the first place, but my question is, why just the jews? What made them different from all of Christianity? If he hated God or something, I'd think he'd have hated all christians too, so why just the Jewish people? I also have heard that he hated anyone who didn't have blond hair and blue eyes? Is that true? If so, why?

    he hated Jews For being enemies of the State, the same reason Japanese were put in concentration camps in USA. However he also did not kill any Jews. New York times dated may 20, 1945 reported liberation of 6 million Jewish 'slaves' working in hidden factories. all of them were well fed and alive.

    In November 1918 German armies were still French and Belgian territory, Berlin remained 450 miles from the nearest front, and the German armies were in good battle order. No Allied army had penetrated the western German frontier, and on the Eastern Front, Germany had already won the war against Russia, concluded with the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk. In the West, Germany had come close to winning the war with the Spring Offensive and was within 12 miles of Paris. – Quote of Adolph Hitler “when out of the cool nights the Allied soldiers already seemed to hear the dull rumble of the advancing storm units of the German army, and with eyes fixed in fear and trepidation awaited the approaching judgment, suddenly a flaming red light arose in Germany, casting its glow into the last shell-hole of the enemy front: at the very moment when the German divisions were receiving their last instructions for the great attack, the general strike broke out in Germany in all of its armaments factories thus depriving the German army of crucial arms and ammunitions. Thousands of German soldiers had to pay for this with their blood”. The instigators of this vilest of all scoundrel tricks of these strikes by Unions in armaments factories were Jews.

    The Imperial Naval Command in Kiel under Admiral Franz von Hipper, planned to dispatch the fleet for a Final battle against the British Navy in the English Channel. The sailors revolt started on the Schillig Roads off Wilhelmshaven, where the German fleet had anchored in expectation of a planned battle. During the night from 29 to 30 October 1918 some Jewish crews refused to obey orders. On board of three ships from the Third Navy Squadron some Jewish sailors refused to lift anchor. On board of the battle ships from the First Navy Squadron SMS "Thüringen“ and "Helgoland" outright mutiny and sabotage occurred. As of 4 November delegations of the sailors scattered out to all larger cities in the country with the cry of 'freedom, beauty, and dignity'. Already by 7 November the revolution had seized all larger coastal cities as well as Hanover, Brunswick, Frankfurt and Munich. In Munich a Workers' and Soldiers' Council forced the last King of Bavaria, Ludwig III, to abdicate. And war was over. 9th November, 1918 Germany surrendered and German King Kaiser Wilhelm II was abdicated. “Freedom, Beauty and dignity are secret words of Jewish secret Society- Freemasons.

    Under the World War 2 Treaty of Versailles, Jewish International Bankers cut Germany in several pieces and gifted it to other nations. A piece of Germany - Alsace-Lorraine was gifted to France, A piece of Germany Saar Region of Coal mines was forcibly brought under French Protectorate, a piece of Germany – Eupen, Malmedy, Moresńet, and St. Vith was gifted to Belgium, a piece of Germany - Northern Schleswig was gifted to Denmark, pieces of Germany - Hultschin and Opava was gifted to Czechoslovakia, a pieces of Germany - West Prussia, Danzig, Posen and Upper Silesia was gifted to Poland, several pieces of Germany – Rhineland and Memel were brought under league of Nations and people of these regions were to vote in future, whether they want to remain in Germany or not. League of Nations also took control of land won by Germany under treaty of Brest-Litovsk. Some of this land was gifted to Poland and some made into new states of Estonia, Lithuania and Latavia.

    The American President, Woodrow Wilson, was advised at Versailles War Conference by Jew Bernard Baruch, The British Prime Minister, Lloyd George, was "advised" by Alfred Milner, Rothschild employee, and Jew Sir Phillip Sassoon, The French leader, Georges Clemenceau, was "advised" by Jew Georges Mandel, the interpreter was another Jew named Mantoux; the Military Adviser Jew called Kish.

    Historians have classified six explanations as to why people hate the Jews:

    Economic -- "We hate Jews because they possess too much wealth and power."

    Chosen People -- "We hate Jews because they arrogantly claim that they are the chosen people."

    Scapegoat -- "Jews are a convenient group to single out and blame for our troubles."

    Deicide -- "We hate Jews because they killed Jesus."

    Outsiders, -- "We hate Jews because they are different than us." (The dislike of the unlike.)

    Racial Theory -- "We hate Jews because they are an inferior race."

    As we examine the explanations, we must ask -- Are they the causes for anti-Semitism or excuses for Anti-Semitism? The difference? If one takes away the cause, then anti-Semitism should no longer exist. If one can show a contradiction to the explanation, it demonstrates that the "cause" is not a reason, it is just an excuse. Let's look at some contradictions:

    Economic -- The Jews of 17th- 20th century Poland and Russia were dirt poor, had no influence and yet they were hated.

    Chosen People -- a) In the late 19th century, the Jews of Germany denied "Choseness." And then they worked on assimilation. Yet, the holocaust started there. b) Christians and Moslems profess to being the "Chosen people," yet, the world and the anti-Semites tolerate them.

    Scapegoat -- Any group must already be hated to be an effective scapegoat. The Scapegoat Theory does not then cause anti-Semitism. Rather, anti-Semitism is what makes the Jews a convenient scapegoat target. Hitler's ranting and ravings would not be taken seriously if he said, "It's the bicycle riders and the midgets who are destroying our society."

    Deicide -- a) the Christian Bible says the Romans killed Jesus, though Jews are mentioned as accomplices (claims that Jews killed Jesus came several hundred years later). How come the accomplices are persecuted and there isn't an anti-Roman movement through history? b) Jesus himself said, "Forgive them [i.e., the Jews], for they know not what they do." The Second Vatican Council in 1963 officially exonerated the Jews as the killers of Jesus. Neither statement of Christian belief lessened anti-Semitism.

    Outsiders -- With the Enlightenment in the late 18th century, many Jews rushed to assimilate. Anti-Semitism should have stopped. Instead, for example, with the Nazis came the cry, in essence: "We hate you, not because you're different, but because you're trying to become like us! We cannot allow you to infect the Aryan race with your inferior genes."

    Racial Theory -- The overriding problem with this theory is that it is self-contradictory: Jews are not a race. Anyone can become a Jew - and members of every race, creed and color in the world have done so at one time or another.

    • Pontius Pilate allowed the News to decide, because he didn't want a Jewish rebellion on his hands. He wanted to keep the Jews happy, in order to have longer Roman rule. You can't blamed the Roman's for that decision. Jesus was Jewish. He was a Jew. Jews wanted him dead. End of story

    Hitler was an Austrian and had been brought up in the deeply conservative catholicism of the old Austro-Hungarian Empire .

    Anti-semitism was part of the dominant religious culture in that society and there is a considerable history of Jews living in that empire who fled oppression and violence there throughout the 100 years prior to WW2 .

    Hitler and many others who had fought in the First World War believed that the Capitalist class was both responsible for that war , had profited during and after it , and also was responsible for the sufferings of ordinary people in the interwars period from 1918 onwards .

    Most German urban working class men would turn to the leftwing and Communist ideas as the solution to their ills , but the fact that many of the Bolshevik revolutionaries and theorists had been Jews , this made it impossible for rabid anti-semites like Hitler to follow that path .

    In the North of Germany , Protestant by tradition , Jews had an easier time , and as they have done everywhere , became overmany among the ranks of the obviously wealthy , and in the Arts , Professions and in the Law and in Government posts .

    Hence they were envied , and thought to operate a system which always favoured their fello-religionists in all circumstances .

  • I was told he did hate the Jews but that is not it because of the after affects or world war 1 Germany was in a poor state and supposedly the Jews were very rich or had rich possessions so Hitler said the Jews were evil blah blah blah and stole what they had while killing them so he could fund world war 2

    He felt jealous of them because he was living in poverty and evey day he would see them in big houses, really rich and feel jealous, which is really mean cause they were made to do jobs like tax collector as everyone thought it was a bad job and everyone hated tax collectors so they were races and picked on the jews making them do it. Also they were an easy scape goat because some christians blame them for "killing Jesus" when back in his time they turned against him.

    Why he liked blonde haired blued eyed people was because that was a common trait of the Arian race, which was what Hitler believed were the superior people and should rule.

    Racist huh?

    Zionists in 1917 had drawn the USA into WWI when the British Empire was on the brink of loosing the war. The German Reich had proposed a neutral peace.With the USA drawn into war and the British genocide on 800.000 German civilians however the signature under the Versailles paper was oppressed on the German people. The reward for the Zionists was the British committment to give Palestine to the Zionists for their own and Jewish settlements, expressed in the Balfour Declaration of 1917. Jews and Zionists then were held responsible for the genocide and the post WWI German misery.

    He hated Jewish people because in the first world war, Germany had lost it and there were many Jewish people around that time, therefore he started to blame them for the defeat and gave them the worst possible torture any human on this earth could bear.

    Adolf Hitler was a symptom of hatred towards the Jews. He didn't invent the concept of racial hatred - he just took it to a dangerously extreme level. There are many theories revolving around Hitler's hatred towards the Jews (as well as other races like Africans and Roma people) but I guess no one knows for sure. If you look around you today, hatred towards Jews still exist (usually referred as 'Antisemitism') in many countries around the world. The reasons for that still remain uncertain in my opinion.

    I don’t believe Hitler scapegoated Jews for German disunity or hated them for being successful, or even for practising ethnic nepotism in the pursuit of success. Why would he be concerned that Jews were over-represented in the upper echelons of German society if their effect upon Germans was beneficial ? It wasn’t - that was the problem. Jews were perceived to use their power for their own historic purposes ... and these were perceived to constitute an act of ancient, unremitting ethnic warfare.

    Read Mein Kampf. And he didn't hate non-blue eyed blonde haired people. They were the Aryan Ideal, but you can't always get what you want. Jews WERE different from Christianity, that is why Christians and Jews have always had a tumultuous relationship. Jews killed Jesus, yes? Just read the book. It doesn't make much sense, but it will explain Nazism
