The Strong Horse picture can easily be equalized with that of Harald Ofstad. The Norwegian academic's analysis of core elements in National-Socialism showed, that the single most potent sentence in the ideology was "contempt for weakness". That is to say, you have always to be strong, or to mingle with the strong, otherwise you are out. - It is very darwininistical in fact. The Muslim outlook, as Smith and Pipes lay out, is almost in accord with a biological "fact". Anyway it is the overall result in the Arab/Muslim mindset.

To clear the picture: in the Arab/Muslim world you equally find racism as a vital point of departure. No wonder that so called Palestinians cooperated with The third Reich during WW II. A Holocaust was planned to take the scene in the British Mandate, if the German troops were victorious.
