re-reading They Thought They Were Free by Milton Mayer, an American Jew who befriended 10 Nazis after WWII in an attempt to understand how ordinary people can support, and even perpetrate, atrocities such as those committed by the Germans. the answer is clear: it's easy. and we'll do it too, if we keep allowing ourselves to see certain groups (Muslims perhaps?) as undesirables. if you can't afford to buy the book, google theythoughttheyw027497mbp.pdf and you might find a free copy floating around out there in cyberspace.
