    If by Europeans you mean Hitler's Gestapo (just to stick to the point) then that may be so. Genghis Khan had the largest harem on earth. But Genghis Khan was a rapist also. In fact this caused him his life for it is said that one sex slave princess of his actually castrated him so as to stop Genghis Khan from continuously raping her.

    Hitler on the other hand either urinated or dropped feces on his "partners."

    Excellent answer, I believe that you hit the nail on the head.

    Mao Zedong and Stalin also did a pretty good job of slaughtering innocent people, let's not forget them.

    While WWII was the deadliest war in history, with between 40 and 72 million deaths, the Mongol conquests come close, having result in between 30 and 70 million deaths. And by worldwide population, the Mongol conquests were much deadlier, 17% vs. 1-3% of living people having been killed.

    List of wars and anthropogenic disasters by death toll - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Each man committed genocide on an unprecedented scale, but today Genghis Khan enjoys an amount of notoriety, akin to that given to Alexander the Great.

    So is one man more evil than the other? And if so, who?
    Barack Hussein Obama. The others actually had some level of a functioning brain and they also stood by what they believed and stood up to their enemies instead of apologizing to them and kissing their asses.

    Innocence, as well as someones humanity is often a mater of perspective and opinion, not an absolute.

    scientific antisemitism certainly predates the nazi party. One of it's major early proponents was Wagner

    Of course, but it was nether mainstream nor politically powerful.

    The first man to preside over the parliament of the newly united Germany was an ethnic Jew - Eduard von Simson.

    Absolutely. No one murdered by Stalinists, for example, was innocent: they all shared the unforgivable original sin of belonging to the wrong "classes": aristocracy, merchants, bourgeoisie...Of course, to keep feeding the meat grinder, the familiar "classes" had to be supplemented with new inventions, like "kulaks" ("rich" peasants) and "podkulachniks" (sub-kulaks: peasants who could not be considered rich by any stretch of imagination, but had to be killed anyway) and certain ethnic groups (Chechens, Kalmyks, Crimean Tartars...)

    Re: Who's worse: Genghis Khan, or Hitler?

    I think they were both guilty of "run amok" jobs programs for their minions. Both evil. In a foot race, I'd bet on Genghis Khan. In an art contest, I'd bet on Hitler. In a beauty contest, I'd favor the hairball, but I have some personal prejudice in such a matter. Both would have made great religious leaders and still would have managed to decimate millions of blasphemers. Ya' just can't hold natural talent back.
