The widespread argument, that there was an essential continuity between Christian and Nazi antisemitism, is to deny. The argument ignores the specific point of Hilter's mixture of the doctrines of pestilential racialism and inverted manichaeism, which was practically the way of intended, complete physical eradication of every Jew. It is this unconstrained, ideologically driven imperative that every Jew be murdered, that distinguishes the Holocaust from all prior antisemitism.
