The Germans were never the medeival animals these Arabs terrorists are.

In the Middle Ages it required castles, forts and heavily fortified palaces to protect the governments from the terrorists.

The leaders and their staff had to isolate themselves from the people for fear of assassins among the people.

These Arabs know only hate and violence. They have no ambition for building a better life for themselves or their family.

In light of the history of the concentration camps I don't know how you can make the statement you make in your first sentence.

Oh yes they were. The Nazi's invented their own mythology (based on Norse mythology and medieval legends dealing with grails and knights no less) to justify their crimes. Hitler wanted to bring back a pagan religion to replace Christianity. He had years to indoctrinate the youth and other portions of the German population, and he probably built on the efforts of his predecessors (along with Mussolini) as well. Germany (and Austria) underwent a huge identity crisis after it lost the war. But every German was not necessarily a Nazi.

The trouble with the Saddams of the world is that they've had role models in figures like Hitler and Stalin. Their friends, the bin Ladens, have an equally atrocious ideology that is even older. But every Arab and believer in Islam is not necessarily in one of those two camps. We have to believe that, or the end result of this war will be worse (for the enemy at least) than WWII.
