You know not of what you speak, Lawrence. Hitler's men burned the Reichstag and blamed the Communists. There were running battles in the streets between the Nazis and the Communists in the early 1930's. The fear of Communism engendered by the Burning of the Reichstag (chosen, of course, for its symbolism (not unlike the Twin Towers)) helped Hitler get elected. The anti-Jewish stuff mostly came later.

Your second sentence, below, is more true,

Lawrence Helm wrote:

Hitler never argued that Germany was under attack other than by the Jews. In regard to external nations, he wanted Germany to be strong so it could gain its needed living room.
