Myth you wrote
there was in fact a moderate sort-of Nazi organization back in the day. These people were mostly opposed to the person of Hitler, somewhat indifferent toward ideology, dead pragmatic and proved highly skilled.
I can also paraphrase the above and say that there was in fact a moderate and enlightened sort of Arabs back in the days of Muhammad. They were mostly opposed to the person of Muhammad somewhat indifferent towards his ideology and dead pragmatic and proved to be highly skilled but orthodoxy seems to always win and the civilized is left behind or forced to convert to the cult of the barbarian
That organization was called the Wehrmacht.
These people were most of the tribe of Quraish that loved life and wine and good food and beautiful women and the freedom of being nomads and good poetry and if their deity failed them they moved on (or even ended by eating him as in the case of the deity that was made of Gee) to a new deity
I am afraid I cannot share your optimism.
I feel the same way
One final point Islam and Nazism share many things they are both totalitarian and fascist human constructs and they are both religions and yes Nazism fits in the definition of what is really a religion and Hitler was the prophet of Nazism.
If Hitler would have won the war the world would have been witnessing not Islamic terrorism but terrorism by the followers of the religion called Nazism.
Muhammad won the war and Hitler lost the war this is the difference
