    To rally people behind you, you need a scapegoat and the religious Jews of Germany were a large group and very distinct in custom and style, while the wealthy Jews were powerful and rich, and of course the spirituality of the preceding decades degraded the Jews to a position of inferiority physically.  And on and on and on goes the reasons.  Every difference that one can communicate is the reason to hook ones mind.

    Hitler wasn't half Jewish. Himmller was expected to have an affair before the Nazi with a Jew and even bigger, Hendrich was suspected to be a Jew as having a  grandmother or something who was Jewish.

    This myth has legs but is wrong, however, one aspect why Hitler might have had such detest for the Jews is that his mother who died when he young (not very young) died and she had a Jewish doctor.

    @Justin Curtis55: Hiter loved his mother but hated his father, due to his violent beatings and drinking.

    Hope this helps you, framistan.

    Hitler looked Jewish or I should say he looked Jewish according to the anti-Semitic literature of the day. This haunted him. Who knows if Hitler really did have some Jewish connection somewhere in his family. He didn't know. Yes, he did have a Jew as his family doctor growing up. Jews are of course not a race and Hitler acknowledged this. Then, when he condemned the Jews, he made being a Jew a generational (you couldn't just join another religion and become something else to escape persecution) thing thus turning being a Jew into something very close to a racial thing.

    Hitler was afraid of them. He had often witnessed their spiritual power. Hitler was a black magician but claimed to be Christian
