Studies have indicated that about 65% of human beings display a willingness to adhere to an an authority figure. This was proven during the trials at Nuremburg where following orders was the shared mantra. Unlike the Nazi's, the Islamics have no individual, like Hitler, to submit too. Islamics must have submissive obedience to a undefined Mohammedism ideology which appeals to the exclusively masculine.
