A quote from Albert Speer (1905-1981), Nazi Germany’s Minister for Armaments 1942-45, Inside the Third Reich, chapter 6
Hitler had been much impressed by a scrap of history he had learned from a delegation of distinguished Arabs. When the Mohammedans had attempted to penetrate beyond France into Central Europe during the eighth century, his visitors had told him, they had been driven back at the Battle of Tours. Had the Arabs won this battle, the world would be Mohammedan today. For theirs was a religion that believed in spreading the faith by the sword and subjugating all nations to that faith. The Germanic peoples would have become heirs to that religion. Such a creed was perfectly suited to the Germanic temperament. Hitler said that the conquering Arabs, because of their racial inferiority, would in the long run have been unable to contend with the harsher climate and conditions of the country. They could not have kept down the more vigorous natives, so that ultimately not Arabs but Islamized Germans could have stood at the head of this Mohammedan Empire.
Hitler usually concluded this historical speculation by remarking "You see, it's been our misfortune to have the wrong religion. Why didn't we have the religion of the Japansese, who regard sacrifice for the Fatherland as the highest good? The Mohammedan religion too would have been much more compatible to us than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness?"
Hitler didn'nt understand

Hitler didn'nt understand that European success in science, culture and ultimately in its economy and military came precisely from the fact it had the good software : the judeo-christian civilization, and christianity. Islam couldn't have produced such a civilization because it is mostly sterile as a cultural terrain. Much of the drive for muslim conquest is the fact that countries newly under the rule of Islam rapidly decline, forcing muslims to go after new countries and more-successful cultures to feed off them.
In this regard, Islam is in line with the looting and bandit tribes' culture which was central to its self-appointed prophet. Mahomet was essentially a road bandit who robbed and killed for a living, and it is ironic that the cult he created ultimately applied his wicked principles on a world scale...

Interesting that Hitler had read so well about Islam.
