Mohammedanism

"Had Charles Martel not been victorious at Poitiers (over the Moors in the Battle of Tours in 732) - already, you see, the world had fallen into the hands of the Jews, so gutless a thing was Christianity! - then we should in all probability been converted to Mohammedanism, that cult which glorifies heroism and which opens the seventh Heaven to the bold warrior alone. Then the German races would have conquered the world. Christianity alone prevented them from doing so."

Way to go, Charles Martel!

It's definitely his opinion.

Was he right? I can't tell, though his obsession with the Christian world falling into the hands of the Jews seems to point to the paranoia about Jews.

And he has no explanation for how a man like Martel (outnumbered, if I remember) stood his ground and won.
