Hitler's hate for Jews goes to the end of WWI when 'stab in the back' was pointed as the reason for Germany's surrender. This 'stab in the back' was
supposedly orchestrated by socialist and communist.
That's not the basic reason of Hitlers hate.
You have to go back to his early life as an aspiring artist and the people he associated himself with to understand Hitler's ardor for both Germany
and Aryanism, and his equal hatred for all things Jewish.
Hitler was an obsessed follower of Richard Wagner. He watched all his operas and his 'ride of the Valkyries' especially inspired Hitler to 'save
Germany'. He played it before each of his future speeches.
Hitler was an artist, a mystic, fervently moved by philosophy. Only secondarily did he see in the Jews the reason for Germany's loss in the Great War.
Fundamentally, to him the Jews symbolized the exact opposite of the Aryan tradition, of the Aryan peoples.
Hence, Hitler's allowing Himmler to divert government equity to funding expeditions in Tibet. In the Theosophy of Madame Blavatsky, the lamas of Tibet
supposedly possess a secret tradition and secret language of immense metaphysical importance.
Hitler thought in terms of spirit - and race, or genetics, was only considered to be the 'carrier' of these spiritual differences.
Everything Jewish was identified with everything opposed to Aryan metaphysics, and the Aryan ethic. And in fact, he's entirely correct in asserting
This is why the Hitler Youth sang songs like:
"We are the joyous Hitler youth,
We do not need any Christian virtue
Our leader is our savior
The Pope and Rabbi shall be gone
We want to be pagans once again."
was only partially Jewish
and nearly 80% of the Bolsheviks were Jewish
It was actually 20%
Because of its Jewish roots, Hitler hated Communism and thus on march to SU, they killed Jewish and official Communist as quickly as they could.
He thought the Jews were behind Communism, AND capitalism; to Hitler, they were both a 'ploy' used by the Jews to take over the world.
The Nazis developed a really sophisticated hegelian dialectic in which the Jewish bankers were seen to be the financers of both Capitalist and
Communist tendencies, intending to use both of them to 'cancel' each other out.
Problem is, even if this were a real intention, it was hardly the intention of the 'Jewish bankers'. Hitler merely used this as an excuse to effect
his agenda of killing as many Jews as possible on the European continent. Even his later design to attack the Soviet Union in project Barbarossa
(which is highly symbolic, since Barbarossa was identified with the 'spirit of Germany' that would save the future Germany) was aimed primarily at the
provinces in the Pale of Settlement, i.e Ukrainian and Belorussian Jews, which numbered at 3 million. That was the jackpot: Europes east Jews. As soon
as the Germans began the occupation, the killings began.
