I didn't make that statement.
There is a difference between a move against Jews and "rising hatred against Jews". One is action, the other is emotion.

So it can definitely be argued that Jews were not persecuted prior to the rise of the Nazi Party, because such persecution was not a national policy, meaning it was not sanctioned by the state, and thus was mainly composed of isolated incidents involving non-state actors/civilians. The same type of conditions existed in the United States around that time
Hitler was released from Landsberg in 1924 and he had virtually no chance of coming to power.There was not much interest in the Nazi ideology. [snip] So Hitler gets out of prison and the Nazi Party is not looking too hot.

Clearly, 1933 was an important date regarding Jews in Germany. No doubt that post WWI the Jew's perception by right wing Germans was in decline...
What was it, pray tell, that occurred in 1933?
Actually, I'll one-up you:
September 14, 1930.
