Not really, that's a myth. They didn't really promote the idea of world conquest and domination, not how you looked, only that Germany's borders were for Ethnic Germans only. Of course that ideology displaces huge numbers from the population. Many Jews were soldiers for the reich. 125,000 in fact. Many muslims also fought for the German reich.

Not really, Blacks had just as many rights and were treated more fairly in Germany then in the US at the time. The National Socialists, did however, believe Germany should be ONLY for ethnic Germans.

National Socialists believed in Germany becoming a country for the Volk, or Ethnic Germans only. It wasn't as much to do with Aryan ideals as it was to do with ethnic Germans and Germany itself being obliterated by the Treaty of Versailes. There was reason and good intent for what Nazis did, was it moral, no. Mainstream history would have you think that Nazi's came out of nowhere and just hated Jews, just because.

That's sort of at odds with all of this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Master_race "The modern concept of the master race in general derives from 19th-century racial theory, which posited a hierarchy of races based on darkness of skin color. "

I'm not a religious person, so if you want to draw parallels between Nazis and religion in general, I won't stop you.
