Did Hitler kill out of fear or something else?

Hitler killed Jews for several reasons:

  1. He thought Jews were Communists.
  2. He blamed Jews because Germany was defeated in World War 1.
  3. He blamed the Jews for the Great Depression.
  4. He thought the Jews were conspiring to rule the world.
  5. He viewed the Jews as racially inferior and thought they were contaminating non-Jewish Germans.
  6. He wanted a Germany and a Europe without Jews.
