Long before the Hitler government began restricting the rights of the German Jews, the leaders of the worldwide Jewish community formally declared war on the "New Germany" at a time when the U.S. government and even the Jewish leaders in Germany were urging caution in dealing with the new Hitler regime.

Hitler had made his intentions clear in Mein Kampf, published in '25 and '26. Persecution of Jews by Nazis was already taking place in the '20s. Brownshirts were stopping Germans from entering Jewish shops in the early '30s, even before Hitler took power. Even if the boycott against German goods had not taken place, the Holocaust would have.
To look at if from the other side: suppose Jews "fired the first shot"
How did that warrant millions of Jews being slaughtered by the Nazis?
